Description

Though Dodge's pickup trucks were redesigned in 1957, with larger V-8 engines and the pushbutton automatic transmission; they gained quad headlights in 1958 with suspended pedals, concealed running boards, hydraulic clutch; they all had a new instrument panel in 1959, yet 1960 was a carryover year as the company prepped for its new 1961 trucks.

Dressed in a sharp combination of Silver over Angus Black, the exterior is in overall very good order. This example is one of 6,922 V-8-equipped D100 trucks made in 1960. The windshield and rear window are both wraparounds, allowing for great visibility in any regular direction. The back window offers 636-square-inches of glass. The bodywork is straight and solid, the engine bay is very tidy, the cargo bed is in very good condition and the chrome front bumper looks fine. The paint looks great overall. However there is solvent pop over the truck that is visible on many of the panels. (See photos)

This rig rolls on Coker Classic wide whitewall, bias-ply tires, size G78-15 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a steel wheel painted silver and with a factory center cap. The tires are in very good condition, as are the wheels. This truck rides on a 116-inch wheelbase, has a 5,100-pound GVWR and a 17.4-gallon gas tank.

At the time, Dodge boasted the biggest V-8 in its class, the 318 CID A-code engine. It had rounded combustion chambers to reduce carbon deposits and allow use of regular gas; it included free-turning exhaust valves, floating piston pins, shunt-type oil filter and rotary oil pump (not used by competing engines). The motor is backed by three-speed manual transmission with an 11-inch clutch. Driver convenience features include a floor heater and there is a new Super Start battery under the hood.

Inside, bright, spacious, comfortable Dodge cabs had rich new colors, with harmonizing seat fabrics; a wrap-around windshield; a 56-inch-wide seat with coil-spring construction and optional foam-rubber padding. There is visible wear on the right side of the bench seat, fuel and temp gauge are inop.

The standard cab had included an ash tray, dome light, non-sag head-lining, fiberboard door panels, rubber floor mats, sun visor on driver's side only, fully adjustable seat, suspended pedals, wrap-around windshield, pull-type exterior door handles, key locks in both cab doors, driver's side outside mirror, single-speed electric windshield wipers, driver-adjustable hand-brake, hooded instrument cluster, sound-deadener on cab floor, deep-center steering wheel, and roomy dispatch box. Custom cabs added an armrest for driver's side, variable-speed electric wipers, insulated dash lining, sound-absorbent door panels, insulated head-lining, foam-rubber seat and seat-back padding and dual sun visors.

Instruments were placed for easy viewing on a no-glare black background. Warning lights indicated oil pressure and generator charge. A unique lever allowed drivers to adjust the parking brake system quickly and without tools. The seat adjusted fore, aft, up and down; the seat-back tilted forward for access to the storage area behind the seat. A concealed step stayed clear of ice and snow for extra-safe footing.

Competition to this D100 in 1960 included Chevrolet's C10 Apache, Ford's F-100, GMC's 1000, International's B-series truck and Willys' Jeep pickup.
