Dodge D100 Sweptside
1 of only 975 examples built in 1958
315 cid V-8
3-speed Load Flite automatic transmission
Dodge built the C Series line of pickup trucks from 1954 to 1960, representing a complete redesign from their predecessors. In order to compete with the Chevrolet Cameo Carrier, Dodge introduced the Sweptside, which incorporated Chrysler’s ambitious ‘Forward Look’ styling theme. It was so attractive that it was nicknamed the ‘Handsomest Truck on the Road.” Unlike the more pedestrian versions, this special model was hand assembled to ensure the highest build quality possible. A whole array of equipment was made standard, including a heater, armrests for the door panels, windshield wipers, duotone paint, wood bed floor and the most futuristic styling that ever graced a utility vehicle.
The Vehicle Offered
The previous owner subjected this D100 Sweptside to a frame-off restoration in 2010. Finished to an exquisite standard with correct colours and finishes used throughout, this is an example that is sure to turn heads wherever it appears. Powered by the famous 315 cid Powerdome Hemi, this example also boasts the optional push button Load Flite transmission, making it even more desirable. This is an investment grade vehicle that will continue to impress and appreciate long into the future.
