Currently featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1957 Dodge D100 pickup. It features a rebuilt 315ci V8 and pushbutton LoadFlite three-speed automatic. Worthy of mention is the installation of many new parts like brake lines, wiring, exhaust hardware and more. Additional items include running boards and step-side bed with a wood plank floor. Refinished in light blue and cream with a gray vinyl and cloth interior, this Dodge pickup is tucked away safely in a Groton, Connecticut garage and comes with a clear Montana title.
The Dodge has undergone a frame-off restoration that was completed in 2015, with the exterior being refinished in Pacific Blue and Mojave Beige. Features include painted front bumper, driver-side mirror, black running boards, padded tailgate chains and fog lights. The floor of the bed is lined with wood planks and stainless-steel dividers. The seller has posted an exterior walk-around video in the gallery of the auction page.
This Dodge rolls on light blue steel wheels with bright hubcaps and trim rings, plus wide whitewall tires.
The bench seat has been reupholstered in gray cloth and vinyl, which is complemented by gray vinyl door panels, headliner and sun visors. Notable features include Chrysler’s famous push-button transmission selector and a dome light.
Vehicle information is displayed on a 110-mph speedometer and gauges that include oil pressure, coolant temperature, amps and fuel level. The five-digit analog odometer shows 5,600 miles, all of which have been added since the restoration; actual mileage is unknown.
During restoration, the reportedly original 315ci V8 and LoadFlite three-speed automatic transmission were rebuilt. Photos of the engine and other parts of the vehicle being restored are available in the photo gallery, which includes three videos showing the engine bay and the engine idling.
In addition to the wiring, the exhaust system, brakes and brake lines were replaced during the restoration seven years ago.
