Shop trucks are always cool, and this 1979 Dodge D100 is a tribute
to one of the coolest shops around. And just to make sure you can
really haul, this has been upgraded to a turbodiesel and a
five-speed! So you get a great patina pickup that will get people
talking...and it's offered now for a value price.
Patina'd trucks always have a cool style that reminds us that the
best pickups work for a living. And this one turns that kind of
desirability up a notch with a custom-painted tribute to Mr. Norm's
Grand Spaulding Dodge. So you can just imagine hauling home some
high-horsepower big blocks in the truck bed. It's really a cool
total package that gives you fun details, like the Prospector trim
full-length stripes and vintage American Racing chrome wheels. But
as you spot the clean glass, good headlights, and pliable
weather-stripping you can also see that this patina machine keeps
The interior is another way this one shows it has been cared for
correctly. A smooth dash, good door panels, and durable rubber
floor mats make for a hardy but stylish pickup. And the bench seat
has a clean look that also has classic plaid-like inserts. The
three-spoke steering wheel is a classic unit, but the dash now has
been updated with well-placed dials that clue you in on the upgrade
under the hood.
Dodge trucks flirted with diesel power in the 1970s, but what
you're looking at in the engine bay is a true upgrade. The Cummins
diesel 4BT engine is one of the hardiest setups around, and the
parts are readily available for service. This one also has the
right desirable component, like the Holset Super turbocharger,
large intercooler, ARP head bolts, 60 lbs valve springs, P-Pump
injection, and Dynomite DDP Stage 2 injectors. The five-speed
manual transmission puts the power in your hands, and this has a
later Dodge HD rear end. So we bet you're thinking about all the
fun you can have with all the low-end torque you get. Plus, front
disc brakes give you firm stopping power.
This is the pickup that's cool, rare, and knows how to get to work.
So if you love a distinct vintage truck, don't miss this deal. Call
