This is a lot of distinction for a very affordable price. After all, the vintage truck market is heating up with the mainstream Chevys and Fords, but when was the last time you saw a 1957 Dodge D100 pickup as a full custom build? With nice upgrades like an A/C interior and a powerful 400+hp stroker V8 heart, this is the pickup that can easily steal the show for far less than others paid for their silver-metal pickups.
1957 was the first year for the D-series trucks, so 60 years later, these are worth it for the rarity alone. But that's not what really attracted you. These pickups were the perfect place to add custom work. After all, they came straight from the factory with a blocky front end and headlights that looked frenched. And we won't even try to pretend the maroon you see today was available from the factory in '57. You can tell by the high-gloss shine that this is the product of a professional application of a modern clearcoat finish. And of course, those flames are an unforgettable touch with a metallic element. Plus, the same tan that's used to outline the flames was also used to create the custom pinstripe on the tailgate. The black bumpers, tonneau cover, and step rails look aggressive, and allow the flair to really come out on the outlaw-style machined alloy wheels.
Inside there's more great custom work. The dash and carpeting match the great exterior maroon. The door panels and upgraded seats seem to coordinate with the exterior's tan... and we know that because there's more cool tan custom pinstriping on the dash. You have great modern features like an armrest, cup holders, and an AM/FM/CD stereo. Plus, the air conditioning is there to keep you nice and cool. But as you grab the classic wood and chrome sports steering wheel, and gaze at the dash full of AutoMeter gauges, you get the feeling that there is something quite powerful under the hood.
The engine bay looks particularly fresh, and for a very good reason. The 383 cubic-inch stroker V8 was professionally installed only about a year (and 600 miles) ago. This Blueprint performance powerhouse features a Holley four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and headers. The total package is rated at over 400 horsepower, and you better believe the growl of the dual exhaust lets the world know it. Power gets to the ground via a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission with a shift kit, and that feeds the strong 10-bolt rear end. More than just a big power machine, this vintage Dodge feels great going down the road thanks to upgrades like the independent front suspension, thick sway bar, power steering, and front disc brakes.
Serious power is rarely this affordable. So when you can get it in such a standout package, you know you need to hurry to grab this Dodge. Call today!!!
