DESCRIPTION

1960 Dodge D100 Pickup



In the 1960's car buying was an adventure with dealers at the advantage, and plenty of added on items were real profit generators, and Dodge Dealers were no exceptions. Modern buyers might be amused by some of the options - heater at $49.70 or $68.10, depending on whether fresh air intake was desired; rear view mirror ($3.30); turn signals ($20 to $28.50); AM radio ($59); and right-side sun visor ($3). Buyers could also opt for a one-quart oil-bath type air cleaner at $6.60 on sixes or $8 on V8, replacing the standard air cleaner; chrome-plated front bumper for $14; and larger capacity oil filter for $9.30 on the six.



For consignment, a utilitarian but snazzy Dodge D100 in great original format as a farm truck. A smooth runner, and great driver with a nice older repaint and some of those nifty extra cost options listed above. Grab your straw hat and bib overalls and let's go for a drive.



Exterior

Bathed, (not literally!), in an older application of the original dark green, this fleetside hauler shows with some chips and inclusions but what farm truck doesn't. These aren't flaws, they're character marks from age and use, each with its own story to tell. Factory fenders, and all straight and true, watching it sit still it appears as moving...how'd they do that?! Upfront the white bumper floats below a body-colored gravel shield and white painted bezels for the dual headlights, and a pristine badged stainless grille. A quasi wraparound front windshield nestles nicely being the original shaped big hood and is trimmed with black rubber gaskets. What little chrome that peppers this truck is in excellent condition, including Dodge D100 hood decor emblems, factory door handles and aluminum finished mirrors. The bed presents as used with a multitude of paint chip offs, but no rust and very few dents are seen, and the original DODGE embossed tailgate hangs between 2 simple round tail lights. Simple black steel wheels are shod in blackwall rubber and complete the farm truck look perfectly.



Interior

A swing of the solid doors and we see the original door design with a swooping gray buttoned and tuck and roll panels with bright chrome for the actuators and cranks. The rest of the doors are factory steel still wearing their original green paint with a touch of rust forming on the lower lips. Jumping inside we land on a cushy gray tweed bench seat that replicated the door panels in design but is missing the button dress up. An exterior matching steel dash, covered in what is believed to be the original paint, with a Jetsons era shaped instrument cluster is embedded with a central speedometer and surrounding supporting gauges sit within a black background. Simple but elegant and dripping with early 60's jet age style. Protruding from that iconic dash is the factory black plastic 3 spoke steering wheel along with the stalk for the optional turn signals. Lightly soiled gray carpet floods the floors and is protected by black rubber Dodge mats.



Drivetrain

Making this rig capable of hauling the goods is a 230ci flathead inline 6-cylinder topped by a 1bbl air cleaner underneath the black oil bath air cleaner assembly. This flattie is backed up by a Borg Warner T85 3-speed manual transmission. The engine bay, with a fair amount of patina and surface rust presents as original. Power goes back to a 4.10 geared rear axle.



Undercarriage

Well done and preserved with a healthy dose of road dirt, patina, and surface rust, but no invasive rust is noted. Single exhaust snakes its way rearward with a matching patina and ends just behind the passenger's rear tire. Progressive rear springs, in the D-100 models, automatically compensate for changing loads. Tension-type rear spring shackles aid stability, reduce noise, and need no lubrication. Up front are more leaf springs and drum brakes are noted all around.



Drive-Ability

This truck started and drove nicely along with all functions being...well functional. On our test track it performed with good acceleration, capable handling and bias free braking. All in all, a good hauler, and frankly it blends right into the farmland that surrounds Morgantown, PA. A word of caution, our consignor notes not to use the wipers as the right side needs replacement and may scratch the glass.



A truck ready to perform any task you can throw at it and look good all the while. A hauler and a shower maintaining all the original lines and even some extra options and we have a winner! This is a shining star in our halls here at Classic Auto Mall, so come on down, and have your wish granted!
