The A100 competed with the Ford Econoline and Chevrolet Van and Chevy Corvair Greenbrier, as well as the Volkswagen Type 2. The range included a pickup truck and van, both with a "forward control" design. Placing the driver on top of the front axle with the engine near the front wheels is called a "cab over" vehicle. The nose was flat, with the engine placed between the driver and passenger, who sat above the front axle. The unibody vehicles used a short, 90 in wheelbase. An A108 was also available from 1967 to 1970, with a longer 108 in wheelbase. The A108 was popular with camper conversion companies. A substantially modified, Hemi-powered A100 wheelstanding exhibition pickup called the "Little Red Wagon" driven by Bill "Maverick" Golden was a popular drag strip attraction from the 1960s to the early 2000s
The Dodge A100 was featured in the American television series That '70s Show episode "Red's Last Day", as Michael Kelso's new van. It also appeared in the movie Cars as the character Dusty Rust-eze, in the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, as well as the comedy Stealing Harvard. An A100 appeared in many different colors in the 1960s Batman TV series. More often than not, it was the preferred getaway vehicle of each episode's villain.
This Nicely restored A100 is just out of a comprehensive restoration that included all new paint and interior,as well as a complete mechanical restoration. The truck runs and drives perfectly and is actually quite a performer with the torquy 225 CuIN Engine coupled to the 727 Torqueflite Automatic. Finished in a nice period correct color, and with grippy new rubber mounted to the sport wheels, this lovely truck will look perfect on the seaside hauling Surfboards, or in the heartland with a load of mulch. These little Cab over trucks are rugged and reliable, and a rare and welcome sight on todays roads.
