This is a lot of distinction for a very affordable price. After
all, the vintage truck market is heating up with the mainstream
Chevys and Fords, but when was the last time you saw a 1957 Dodge
D100 pickup? With the right custom touches and a healthy Mopar V8,
you'll start to see they made nice investments while leaving all
the right vintage details.
1957 was the first year for the D-series trucks, so over 60 years
later, these are worth it for the rarity alone. But that's not what
really attracted you. These pickups were the perfect place to add
custom work. After all, they came straight from the factory with a
blocky front end and headlights that looked frenched. So it just
seems right to upgrade the style with features like deleted
bumpers, side step rails, and bright dual exhaust tips. Plus, those
15-inch Vision wheels do a great job of drawing attention to the
sporty stance. And we won't even try to pretend the maroon paint
you see today was available from the factory in '57. It gives this
a smooth style to show off the classic curves in the sheetmetal.
But the overall finish is nothing too fancy. That wouldn't be right
for a truck line that once touted its "job rated" credentials. The
same feeling goes for the real wood in the bed. It's glossy and
attractive, but with the right look where this one still isn't
afraid to hit the road and get to work.
The interior continues the maroon, and it has some nice details.
For example, the re-covered bench seat really ties this color combo
together with a clean and custom style. The dash has a classic
style, right down to the gauges on display. But you've also got a
B&M floor shifter, sports steering wheel, and well-placed
auxiliary readouts to give this an upgrade in its driver-ready
It's always great to see a classic Mopar get a V8 upgrade while
still keeping it in the Mopar family. This 318 cubic-inch motor
wasn't available when this truck came down the line, and so the
bold red block w/shining valve covers is a great addition to show
off. It's a hardy motor that runs well, and the header-fed dual
exhaust gives it an upgrade in attitude. This one still has that
classic pickup style that wants you to feel the road, but it also
gives you better driving features, like a three-speed automatic
transmission and wide modern tires.
This is the first of the D-Series, and it's a real classic cruiser.
So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry to grab this
Dodge. Call today!!!
