Garrett Classics is proud to showcase this classic '68 Dodge D-100 Utiline Pickup Truck. This interesting truck was owned by the original family since new until recently. This truck underwent an extensive restoration effort involving removal of all body panels from the chassis to accomplish a long-term restoration. Always a dry climate, never any rust on this one. It is in fine operating condition and a real pleasure to drive. It had a new set of Michelin tires installed all around recently. The wood in the bed was replaced during the restoration as well. This truck spent most of its years in the New Braunfels, Texas area. Today, this D-100 is proudly displayed here at Garrett Classics in Lewisville, Texas.
You don't see many of these Dodge Utiline Design trucks on the road anymore, you especially don't see one in this condition. Dodge produced this design of truck from 1961 until 1971. The paint and body show very well. The body panels were removed during the extensive restoration efforts. The interior is spartan and correct, displaying the original gauge cluster with functional gauges. Also, the 3-speed manual shifter on the column works as it should. Note the clean dash, door panels, and headliner.
Under the hood is the famous for its longevity Dodge Slant Six engine. This power plant runs smooth and strong. An air conditioning compressor is there but the system needs parts and work to make this an A/C truck. Close inspection will confirm good sheet metal throughout the firewall, inner fenders and core support. The undercarriage is in very good condition. This is a driven truck, clean and solid underneath. The door undersides are excellent. The wood bed & color-keyed strips are in great shape as well.
