January 31, 2022 Update – We confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

Throughout the late 1950 and 1960s, Dodge offered unique ways to control automatic transmissions. Controls ranged from push buttons mounted to the left of the steering on its passenger cars to dash-mounted detent lever on its automatic-equipped trucks. This 1966 Dodge D100 Sweptline street machine we came across in January 2022 on Craigslist in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania (Harrisburg) features this unique shifter controlling a dual Carter AFB topped small-block Mopar V8. While the seller mentions their truck runs and drives great, it is in need of a complete brake overhaul due to dry storage dating back to 1993.

Currently offered for $10,900, comparing that price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the private seller has their D100 Sweptline priced between this guide’s #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $6,300 and its #3 “Good” appraisal of $14,500.  A bit more optimistic, the  Collector Car Market Review Online Tool indicates the seller’s ask falls between this guide’s #3 “Good” estimate of $9,500 and its #2 “Very Good” estimate of $14,500.

The D/W series is a line of pickup trucks sold by Dodge from October 1960 to September 30, 1993. The same basic design was retained across three generations until the October 1993 introduction of a completely redesigned Ram.  Dodge’s second-generation D Series pickup truck was a mild redesign launched in the spring of 1965 with styling updates lasting through 1967.  The most distinctive change was the switch back to large-framed single round headlights. Updates 1965 included a wider tailgate and the replacement of the A-series engines with the updated LA series, as well as a six-inch wheelbase stretch on eight-foot Sweptline bed models.
