So the 1964 Dodge D-100 truck is for sale.
You never see many 1964 Dodge trucks.
Rat rod, street rod, or restore the Dodge!
At one time I was considering making this D-100 into a replica of the famous Dick Boynton Ram Truck that was also known as the Flying Barn Door that raced for a short while in the B/Factory Experimental.
I also was contemplating making a clone 1964 Custom Sports Special (CSS) or swapping in a later 360 engine and front suspension off of a 1964 Dodge truck.
So several years ago I bought this 1964 D-100 to use for one of these projects. (LA 318 V-8 with granny 4 speed) I was going to pull the body off the frame, have the cab and bed dipped and then fix any rust and go from there. Like most best laid plans, though, I got side-tracked by house repairs and other projects.
This truck has the typical early Dodge truck related rust (floorboard, rocker, etc.) but I think the frame is fine as far as I can tell. Floorboard and rocker patch panels are available I believe. I don't know about other patches, but it's not a complicated body style to mimic at the ground areas where most rust settles. Other normal body work to patch holes and straighten panels apply, pretty much what youd expect in truck of this age.
The 318 motor ran and did not rap or smoke but has not been started for several years. The carb needs replacing to get the engine running. The brakes and hydraulic clutch have gone south while the truck sat.
I have the original seat frame. I put in the bucket seat as a temporary seat. The bucket seat can go with the truck if you want it. The original seat is unupholstered and needs restoration: it goes with the truck.
This D-100 truck uses the longer 122 inch wheelbase and was apparently ordered with a 4 speed transmission, heater and side mirrors (long gone, but mounting holes remain) as options.
So if you are looking for a project this Dodge would let you make a racer, a street rod or whatever fits your plans (Ram Truck, CSS , etc.).
The 1964 Dodge D-100 is in the Houston, TX area.
Was $895. Reduced to $750 or best offer. I also have a 1964 318 Poly engine and pushbutton transmission that I will include with a $750 sale price so you can make the engine correct date code for the truck.
Note: This is a cool truck but please remember it is a project. The body needs the typical repairs for a 44 year old original vehicle. The hood does have heavy surface rust on top due to no paint left on; there is some rust through in the front, on either side where the DODGE letters are. The doors have rust through at the bottom inside where the seams seal together,etc. I have coated a lot of the rust with rust sealer since these pictures were taken. In all, the Dodge is well worth saving; if you have the time and talent to do so, please give it GO.
