Check this thing out

I had never seen one before until I ran across this ad site;

  That is the weirdest looking old truck I've ever seen.    ;D

    Weird but way cool guy has a restored one down here it really cool....

    BTW ford had a truck like that too...
    I thought, why not have people calll me by my first name?

    Looking at someone elses Mopars at a car show it like having a hot female friend, you might appreciate and know quite a bit about them, but at the end of the day you're not the one that's putting them through their paces.

    Don't forget about the Corvair truck that was also similar.

    The A100 pickup was the cabover pickup version of the Dodge A100 Van...neat vehicles.

    I saw the Little Red Wagon run at the Mopar Nats in '92 and '93. They had a blown hemi in the bed and the trans bolted directly to the rear end. The guy had a bucket seat in the middle of the cab and looked through a hole it the floor when wheelstanding. He had two brake levers, one by each knee, and he would steer with the brakes. Pretty impressive wheelstand from start to finish, 1/4 mile in 8.5 seconds.

    My father had that exact same truck in white, he drove it in highschool.  He sold it to a man locally to restore it.  I'll post up some pictures when it's finished.

    Jeep also made something like that, but it was four wheel drive! They are a blast to spin cookies in!

    Back in around 1978-9 I worked for a truck tire place in Anaheim California and my service truck was one of these in stock crud brown paint. The body was straight and it had the dash mounted shifter w/318 motor. Even with two or three truck tires and all my tools (aprox. 400 lbs.) it hauled butt. I could light it up easily when empty and still light em some when full. Those were always a cool pickup. Didnt like the idea of not much between you and whatever you might get in a wreak with though, just 10-12" between you and the air.

    VW also made a vehiclesimiler to that.
    Neither of them had the "guts" of the Ford/Dodge vans. They were actually little work horses.

    I like 'em. Plenty of 273 and 318 powered A100s. Vans are more common, seeing more build-ups with the motor in the cab lately.
