I personally believe that the Slanty was the best engine ever to come from Detroit, certainly from Auburn Hills. I agree that the use of an ammeter instead of a voltmeter is dated, and that Ford had a more modern product. Even the 426 wedge with 365 horsepower was available; truck motors back then usually petered out with a mid-size V8 in mild tune, with about 200 horses tops. New spark plugs, needs some carburetor work. And everyone, not just old car nuts love them. This is a fraudulent add Craigslist was notified. The Custom Sport Truck was a rare glimpse into the future.
As for your comments on the 426 Hemi, most of the traits you describe were a function of the cam profile that was used in those engines. The long stroke forces the use of smaller valves; not enough room for bigger ones. The metal is-was super clean for being 50 years old. The extra area of the piston would balance the lesser leverage of the shorter stroke. There are a couple repairable chips in the windshield.
I can email - provide them if you'd like. Please click on the link and look at all of them. New chrome lugs all the way around. I would have thought Don Knotts would have been a spokesman for Ford, guess he got a sweet offer from Dodge. Dodge trucks were sold through typical Dodge dealers. New fuel sending unit inside gas tank behind seat. Don't miss this opportunity to own this unique 67 Dodge Power Wagon with a factory snow plow.
Thanks to everyone who took a look at my truck. The D Series is a line of pickup trucks that was sold by Dodge from 1961 to 1980. Tailgate has been replaced with a better one. The power assist on American cars back then was typically way-over boosted, and they all did that until you got used to them, using a feather touch. It was a big fad with the camper crowd in the late sixties and seventies; kind of like getting a dually in one wheel and tire.
I have a 71 D 200 crewcab 383 ps, pb ac, auto,Dana 60 shure-grip and it is a great driver. All around a solid, good driving rare old truck. Thanks very much for viewing this 1967 Dodge D - 100 pickup truck. The truck runs and drives normally. At least it all works well and makes for a nice driving truck with acres of interior room front and back. I might add that after DeSoto was canceled, Dodge dealers picked up Chrysler as well.
I have 3 of the 4 original tires that came with the truck. Only 1,100 were made and 570 were slant six motor trucks like this one. A three-speed automatic transmission was a major advance—the truck used a two-speed automatic less than a decade earlier. I always thought of these Dodge trucks as the most hideous-designed trucks of all time. There is a repaired area in the front of the right door and back of cowl and the repair is not perfect. The odometer reads 49,450 and this is the original mileage.
That forces cam timing to work with those small valves, so you get engines with good air flow at low to medium speeds, which is torque. The smallest engine in the half-ton D-100 was the little 170 cubic inch slant six making 101 gross hp. . 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 is certainly a special order truck with a very scarce configuration. The new D Series arrived in 1961, looking pretty modern for the times. The funky small vent windows, oval tail lights, slanted rear window, and trapezoidal grill extending over quad headlights on the earlier models are bizarre enough to make it attractive- in an ugly sort of way.
It is the only 67 Utiline Power Wagon I have ever seen. I believe every aspect of it's condition is covered in the pictures; please ask if you have any questions. So you can have it all in one engine! Note: Ebay and Power Wagon Photo Classifieds are the only two forums this truck is advertised. The frame, drivetrain and suspension are all extremely solid. Re-painted entire dash, located absent dash pad and installed. Even I forgot one or two: diesel engines in 1962? Wonder if you can still get replacements? Simply amazing, as I, being only a sergeant, an E-4, spent 90% of my money supporting my car above! They were really trying to keep up as they had a column shifter for the automatic by 71 but the exposed door hinges and straight axle front end were a bit outdated by then along with the valve and ram steering assist. I personally worked side by side with the painter to learn more about restoration.
The crew cab for the Dodge looks a little more awkward than the Ford, especially in the B-pillar area. Has 2 year oold commercial semi truck battery. The pump is mounted on the motor and is belt-driven. You could build a short stroke engine, same displacement and everything else the same, and it would make pretty much the same power curve. New driver and passenger door handles not an easy find 19. When in the air force, the officers in my outfit started a keep-up-with-the-joneses attitude; when one officer bought something new, most of the others began to follow. Would also work great for dragging firewood logs out of the woods, or as an off road tow truck.
In 1967, the D Series trucks received big-block 383 2-barrel engines as a standard option. The Dodge Dude, featuring no less than Don Knotts as the Dude of the times. Please click on the link and look at all of them. But, the Dodge seems to be a very well put together package. They were generally pretty sturdy, but the door and window hardware was chancy — one rig in particular we had to always leave the window open because both outside door handles were broken. Now if they had offered the hemi… Well, in 1964, that question was valid, given the universality of truck bench seats.
