Old Dodge Pickup Trucks : 1960 Dodge D-100 - Classic Cruisers

I like it when of us think outdoors of the box, and Chad Price of Pilot Grove, Missouri, definitely qualifies along with his superior '60 Dodge D-100.

Chad's "Rambunctious" D-100 was a ground-up project that is a perfect instance of what may be achieved with a fantastic imagination, a whole lot of ability, and a bunch of good old style elbow grease. Chad started with a nicely-worn outdated workhorse, which he stripped down fully and rebuilt element by component. The unique body was modified to just accept a Mustang II-style IFS setup and a 4-bar coilover rear suspension assembly. He additionally added four-wheel disc brakes, an influence rack-and-pinion assembly, and a Summit Racing aluminum gas tank. Powering the D-100 is a muscular 380hp, 360-cube Mopar crate engine backed by a TCI-prepped 727 trans. The pickup rolls on a quartet of Centerline Corona wheels, 16s and 17s, wrapped in Fusion 205/55R and 255/50R17. When it came time to handle the physique Chad spared no effort. The body was massaged again into pristine shape and then treated to an entire shave, front and rear rolled pans, a smoothed firewall and tailgate, a crammed cowl, and an influence bedcover. Chad additionally eliminated the cab driprails earlier than coating the Dodge in a custom-mixed paint coloration he likes to name Rambunctious Blue.
