Dodge A100 (1965)

Ford and GM virtually dominated the truck market in the 1960s, and while their trucks have long been modified, it takes a little more work to modify a Dodge pick-up. The A100 was ideal for the modification, however, as it featured an Optional 273ci (4.5-liter) V8 small-block for 1965. This rev-happy engine made an ideal candidate for tuning, as this example shows. The added benefit was the motor being mounted well behind the front wheels, which improved weight-distribution even though this truck can still light up the rears at a touch of the throttle. The truck features the original suspension, albeit lowered, and Cragar chromed five-spoke rims with modern radials to improve both traction and handling. While Intended mostly for work use as standard, this updated example has a reworked interior with full Sony sound system and custom-built console, plus leather seats.
