1979 Dodge D100 Truck Has ‘Vintage’ Written All Over It

This customized 1979 Dodge D100 pickup is powered by a 318ci V8 mated to a three-speed automatic.

While the hipster subculture has gotten somewhat of a bad rep in past years, culturally speaking it is a very important demographic, with a melting pot of styles.

Now, some of these young adults really like wearing and owning vintage products, and whether you just want to be a little different or you’re simply passionate about old reconditioned trucks, then you might be interested in this 1979 Dodge D100 custom pickup.

The truck is currently being auctioned off at Bring a Trailer, with 59,000 miles (95,000 km) on its 318 ci V8 engine.

According to the ad, the cab and Utiline bed were painted red under a previous owner, while the stained wood stake sides are shown both mounted and uninstalled. The wheels meanwhile are also red, measuring 15-inches in diameter and featuring chrome hubcaps.

Moving on to the interior, we spot black vinyl-upholstered seats, flanking a middle seat that can be folded into an armrest. There are also matching door panel inserts, a stock steering wheel, Jensen cassette stereo, Sunpro oil pressure gauge and Skulls for the door lock pins and driver’s seat adjuster – and there’s an aftermarket pop-up glass sunroof too.

The V8 unit comes with a chrome Edelbrock air filter housing and rocker covers, while the carburetor was allegedly replaced four years ago. The 318ci V8 is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission, sending power to the rear wheel exclusively.

With two days left, the highest bid is just $3,500, so it’s not like you’ll be spending that much on it. Sure, it is not a classic, but it’s an offbeat choice that might just pique someone’s interest.
