The D Series is a line of pickup trucks that was sold by Dodge from 1961 to 1980. After 1980, the trucks were renamed the Dodge Ram and the same basic design was retained until the 1994 introduction of a completely redesigned Ram. The D Series shared its AD platform with the Dodge Ramcharger/Plymouth Trailduster twins. The D Series used the familiar Chrysler Slant-6 engine in displacements of 170 cu in, 198 cu in, and 225 cu in as the base models, depending on the year. Another innovation was the introduction of an alternator rather than a generator for electrical power. A three-speed automatic transmission was a major advance—the truck used a two-speed automatic less than a decade earlier. Yet another innovation, a “Crew Cab” (four-door) body style was introduced in 1963, a first for a factory pickup. Prior crew cabs were custom conversion jobs. The D Series was redesigned for 1965. Updates included a wider tailgate and the replacement of the A series engines with the updated LA series. In 1967, the D Series trucks received big-block 383 2-barrel engines as a standard option. The final generation of the D-100 happened in 1980 when the Dodge truck was completely transformed and restyled and named the Dodge Ram. But for many years this tough truck played a great part in the Dodge Division to provide a sturdy work truck to the market place, competing with it’s rivals, the Ford and Chevy pickups. This example has been professionally restored and shows off what this D -100 would look like straight from the factory. The only feature that has been updated is the seating and console, otherwise the whole truck has been marvelously restored to factory specs. Under the hood lies the 318 cube engine. Thanks very much for viewing this 1967 Dodge D – 100 pickup truck.
