There’s just something about old school pickups that’s universally appealing. To us, they’re clean, straightforward manifestations of the best aspects of classic car ownership. And it seems many enthusiasts agree, as trucks like this unique Dodge have quickly become some of our hottest sellers. Mixing a stroked BluePrint V8 and tough TorqueFlite 3-speed with a custom chassis and show-stopping bodywork, this road-ready warrior is worthy of EVERY gearhead’s full attention. If you’re looking for a professionally built custom that highlights purposeful simplicity with acute detailing, take a close look at this impressive D100!

BODYWORK/TRIM

Fully sorted and ready to roll, this super cool pickup recently received a professional, frame-off restoration that was completed by Lakeside Rods and Rides of Rockwell City, Iowa. As you can tell from our high-resolution photos, that first class build is highlighted by a smooth combination of glossy Ford Mineral Gray and Matte Tectonic Silver 2-stage. Under that high quality PPG pigment, an incredibly straight fuselage hangs solid panels that, apart from a thorough massage during the aforementioned reboot, appear to have led a quiet, drama-free existence. Those massaged panels feature better-than-factory alignment and, when opened and closed, function exceptionally well. And that functional body’s combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat surfaces suggests many labor-intensive hours were spent exacting top-notch finish work.

Produced between 1961 and 1980, the Dodge D Series was the precursor to today’s much loved Ram. This 1965 D Series is a member of what MoPar enthusiasts affectionately call the Sweptline family; a nickname that becomes pretty self-explanatory upon noticing the pickup’s sculpted profile. At the front of the truck, a chromed grille centers a custom “408” emblem between a mirrored bumper, clean parking lamps and desirable quad headlights that were phased out the following model year. Above that grille, a “DODGE” branded hood rolls toward smoked glass that cased in stemmed mirrors, polished wipers and an attractive matte roof. At the sides of that hood, the truck’s sweeping profile founds polished door handles and a color-keyed fuel filler behind more, bold “DODGE” lettering. At the center of that profile, a matte finished bed founds a custom floor around a vintage, pinstriped trunk. And at the back of that bed, a second mirrored bumper reflects clean lights, wrapped chains and a “DODGE” stamped tailgate.

ENGINE

Toss the hood and you’ll find a trusty Chrysler 360 that, thanks to the pros at Kearney, Nebraska’s BluePrint Engines, has been stroked to 408 cubic inches. At the top of that delightfully painted mill, a 2-tone, dual-snorkel air cleaner feeds oxygen in to a coated Edelbrock carburetor, which is seated on an Edelbrock RPM Air Gap intake. At the sides of that intake, Magnum cylinder heads brandish painted, “408” branded valve covers. Fires get lit by a color-keyed distributor, which jolts loomed Taylor plug wires. Cooling comes courtesy of a matte PRC radiator, which rides between a big puller fan and a pinstriped expansion tank. Spent gases exit through plated Chrysler manifolds. A Billet Specialties Tru Trac accessory drive spins a color-keyed water pump between a polished AC compressor and a polished alternator. And the truck’s matte engine compartment is very well done, with items like trick dipsticks, braided fluid lines and a familiar Wilwood master cylinder rounding out an otherwise impressive build.

DRIVETRAIN/TRANSMISSION

Judging by appearance, this classic spent most of its blue-collar life living clean and working hard. So, when the time came for rebirth, the truck was a prime candidate for thorough modernization. Nowhere is that theme more evident than under the skin. The dressed and stroked 360 sends power to a proven A727 3-speed which, perched on a Fat Man crossmember, spins a trusty Ford axle. That smooth drivetrain pushes a custom 4-link suspension, which sports fresh Ridetech air bags. Tracking is provided by an upgraded front clip, which is fitted with tubular control arms, power rack-and-pinion steering and two more Ridetech bags. Quick stops are a cinch thanks to retrofitted power front disc and rear drum brakes. At the center of the floor, aluminized exhaust pipes make good use of throaty turbo mufflers. And at the corners of the chassis, custom US Mags Heavy Artillery wheels twist 245/45R18 Falken Ziex radials in front of 275/40R20 Falken Ziex radials.

INTERIOR

When you pop this pickup’s doors, you’ll find a comfortable cockpit that, thanks to Weber’s Custom Interiors of Alexandria, Minnesota, features stylish cowhide accents. Top dead center, a painted dash hangs custom Dakota Digital analog telemetry opposite under-dash air conditioning. In front of that dash, a plush leather seat backs a custom console, which floats on beige carpet that’s protected by piped and color-keyed floor mats. At the sides of that rug, simple door panels hang polished handles over small storage bags that are finished with cowhide accents. Above those panels, a custom cowhide headliner frames color-keyed sun visors. And in front of the driver, a tilting column spins a 1956 Oldsmobile steering wheel around a polished gear selector.
