Two Owner: 1975 Dodge D100 Pickup – $7,250
Diehard, “Mopar or No Car” fans in need of a vintage truck to use as either daily transportation or a restoration project need to consider this 1975 318 cubic inch V8-powered, two-owner, Dodge D100 long bed listed yesterday here on Craigslist in Harrisburg, Pennsylania. With an asking price of $7,250, a check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his D100 priced about $800 below the current #3 “Good” estimate of $8,000.

Dodge introduced its redesigned third generation D series pickup truck line for the 1972 model year with a more rounded look. Third generation trucks now featured an independent front suspension and pocketed taillights (the distinctive reverse-on-top lights were recessed to .25 in (6.4 mm) to avoid damage in loading docks and confined spaces). Styling cues, such as the scalloped hood and rounded fenderwells, were similar to the rounded, smooth look of the 1971 Plymouth Satellite. Dodge introduced the use of galvanized steel through much of the trucks body panels to resist rust and corrosion, making them very durable.
Long-time baseball fans likely recall catcher and later TV announcer Joe Garagiola who Dodge used in the mid-seventies to pitch (pun intended!) some of its products. We came across this 1976 commercial about Dodge’s entire truck line for that model year:
Still wearing its original paint that overall appears to present well, we think a complete restoration of the interior this Dodge is all that’s really needed to enjoy this vintage truck. Good luck with the purchase!
Here’s the seller’s description:
“I am the second owner of this beautiful truck. It has been garage kept by the first owner and continues to be sheltered. This truck has the stock carbureted 318 V8 engine and original paint job. There are slight red spots/specks on the paint on the drivers side that were there when I purchased it. It has an 8ft bed and is rwd. Great Sunday driver or would be an excellent restoration project.“
