70's Dodge D100 Restoration

Post by JayceLane » Fri 04 Apr 2014, 07:53

Righty then, eish the project bug has bitten, sold the Karmann Ghia, am planning to sell the Ford F250 now because I have bought this Dodge D100 and I cant have two bakkies now. Hopefully will get it coming down this weekend or mid next week.

The biggest debate in the house at the moment is whether to go Fire Engine Red, or Deep Metallic Blue as per pictures.
Examples below and the polls open today.

Difficult choice, both colors would look great.

On one hand I think a Mopar should be a bright color, so choose Red, but the Blue also looks good, and would contrast beautifully with a Hemi orange engine.

What size engine? 225 Slant Six or?

Side note here; I have a dealer brochure somewhere for a 1970's RSA Dodge 100 truck/bakkie. :)

Hi Jayce. I also have a D100. Complete but rust in places. Has a spare slant 6. Bear hawker, what would it take for you to part with that dealer broucher. Would like to own it.

Let me think about it. Right now it's in storage although I'd like to see it go 'home' to an RSA D100 :)

Umm I think I should get first dibs on the poster seeing that I started this thread :lol: :lol:

Family still split on the colour choice at the moment, but thinking of adding the black inserts on bonnet and back stripe on mine as per example below.

There is a wrecking yard somewhere in RSA with quite a few of those 1972+ D100's; RHD and all...........the engines looked to be 383's since you guys still made them there after production of that V8 was discontinued here in the USA back in 1971...........

The blackouts will give it a nice sporting muscle truck look, go for it.
