Vehicle DescriptionA vintage 4x4 pickup for an obtainable price is already enticing. But when you start to think how seldom you see a 1969 Dodge D100 Adventurer, especially with their original V8, and you realize that this complete and powerful pickup is a rare treat.
You know this is the kind of truck that gets people talking. Dodge pickups had a style all their own. The face seems a bit beefier than the Fords or Chevys. But the sweeping line that starts at the headlights and runs the full profile is something you'd expect on a '60s sport coupe, not a workman's vehicle. So this is a handsome and rugged total package. That's why it looks so good with the professionally applied bold red. While this one has great original features like the bright chrome bumper and factory wheel covers, we think the added dual hood scoop gives this one some needed extra distinction. But as nice as this total presentation is for showing off, don't be afraid to use this 4x4 for true truck duty. After all, this has the added utility of the longer bed model, and it has been covered in liner paint to protect it from all your chores. Plus, you even have a ball hitch on the rear step bumper.
Part of the premium Adventurer package means an upgrade interior. It starts with the split bench seat that offers space for three, but bucket-level individualized comfort for everyone. And since this pickup is believed to have averaged only around 1,500 miles annually, it's not hard to believe this can be original and still be so well presented. The thin three-spoke steering wheel has that perfect vintage truck feel, and it gives you a full view of the gauges. In true classic truck fashion, you're within easy reach of everything from the heat/defrost controls to the AM/FM/cassette stereo.
When you take a look at the original 383 cubic-inch V8, we bet you wished you looked this good and correct after nearly a half-century on this earth. Of course, good maintenance always helps with this presentation. The blue block and valve covers join the large black air topper to remind you exactly what Mopar big block power looked like in 1969. And topped with a four-barrel carburetor, this one has plenty of power and adds plenty of bass for the stainless dual exhaust. Chrysler's stout A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission feeds the two-speed transfer case, so you can pull true 4x4 duty in this well-presented and rare Dodge.
The sale comes complete with title documentation, so you can help trace the lineage of one of the most interesting vintage pickups around. It's impressive that this much distinction and utility is also so affordable. Don't miss out, call today!
