No, you're eyes are not deceiving you. This is a 1966 Dodge A100
van. Rarely do these come around anymore, especially a fully
restored custom built like this one.
That dark metallic green is the perfect paint for this restored van. It captures some of the '60s earthtone spirit, but it has the modern shine of a metallic clearcoat, so it looks fantastic and contemporary. You can instantly tell the investment in this one was significant, and the paint is so fresh, that we wouldn't be surprised when it takes home some awards. Especially since the thoughtful application includes the trim pieces painted in a darker shade of a coordinating green. This van doesn't completely skip out on brightwork, it's just saved for the iconic American Racing Torq Thrust wheels that wear modern grippy rubber.
The moment you open the door, you'll realize the restoration budget wasn't blown only on the exterior. There was plenty left over to make one of the coolest van interiors you'll ever see. Oak fills the cargo area on the floor, celling, and even across the side panels. Up front is a LeCarra steering wheel and a set of SunPro auxiliary gauges. You and your passenger get custom leather buckets and comfy door panels that combine the exterior green with the seating leather. This brown nicely matches the carpeting, dash, and custom center console. In fact, that last piece houses cup holders, the AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input for your iPod, and controls for the R134a air conditioning. So this vintage van is more comfortable than many modern ones.
The whole restoration was completed in 2015, and so there is less than 100 miles on the rebuilt 235 cubic-inch inline-six and three-speed automatic transmission. That means you get a complete build that starts easy, idles smoothly, and pulls nicely through the gears. Having a forward control van not only gives you a commanding view of the road, but also means wowing crowds when you open up the center console. After all, where most people store a sandwich, you've got your entire power base.
Everyone wants a nice van as a support vehicle for car shows, but this one is a show-stopper all on its own. So whether you need to haul supplies or just haul home awards, this full custom build of a rare Dodge A100 is a very cool choice. Since there's only one up for grabs, you might want to hurry up and call today!
