This Dodge D100 is a perfect Craigslist Pick-Me-Up

Everyone needs to own a pickup truck at least once in their life. And here’s a pretty excellent example of one. This is a 1975 Dodge D100 Adventurer. That means it was an ever-so-slightly fancier trim compared to the base truck, yet not as sporty as some of the awesome variations of the D-Series at the time. Also, it’s hard to top The Dude as a trim name. Regardless, this one here looks pretty sweet.

The seller states the truck has just 71,000 miles on its odometer. Under the hood is a stout 318-cubic inch V8 and it’s backed up by an automatic gearbox. The bench seat appears to be in excellent shape and the motor recently received some mechanical love.

An asking price of $8,500 doesn’t seem too terrible. Especially in this era of crazy prices for older vehicles at the moment. And seeing how this California truck is a ’75, that means you won’t have to worry about getting it smogged.

  1. Air conditioning? Automatic transmission? Extant manufacturer? That’s, like, three strikes right there.

    1. The ad doesn’t say that the air conditioner actually works, and the window is down, so you’ve got some hope there. And the owner’s manual says “Dodge Trucks”, which doesn’t exist due to the technicality that Ram makes the trucks now (and they no longer make heavy duty trucks).

      But I don’t think the junkyards still have great supplies of 833 transmissions to swap in place of the auto. At least the auto from the factory predates the automatic overdrive.

      1. Those are all well-reasoned points but there’s the additional problem that I’m not at all convinced automatic chokes are a good idea. I’m afraid this truck is just too avant-garde for me. I like the dealer-installed towing bumper, though.

        1. The logo on the tailgate is faded in the right way to retouch it to say Bodge. You could attach a cable to the choke.

          And the trailer hitches that have shanks that fit through the holes on that bumper all have ridiculously low tow ratings, so that’s a bonus for you.
