1965 Dodge A100
The A100 is a range of compact trucks and vans manufactured and marketed from 1964 to 1970 by Chrysler under the Dodge marque in the United States. The A100 competed with the Ford Econoline and the Chevy van and Chevy Corvair Greenbrier, as well as the VW Type 2. The range included both a pickup truck and a 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 (2,300 mm) wheelbase. A substantially modified, Hemi powered A100 wheel standing exhibition pickup called the ‘Little Red Wagon’ driven by Bill ‘Maverick’ Golden was a popular drag strip attraction from the 1960s to the early 2000. It was the first wheel standing truck and was the world’s fastest truck at that time. The original truck toured extensively throughout the United States and was used in television commercials for Dodge trucks. The Little Red Wagon had debuted in the 1965 season opener at the Lions Drag Strip in Wilmington, CA in front of 10,000 fans and reporters from major newspapers and automotive publications. The vehicle suffered wrecks in 1969, 1971, and 1975. In 2009, the replacement Little Red Wagon from 1975 was sold at RM Auctions Icons of Speed and Style Auction.
Our Dodge A100 was stored many years in a barn in southern Spain, before we discovered him and pulled him out to get him back on the road. Substantial work has gone into this very rare truck, being it motor, chassis, custom made exhaust, wheels and tyres or the tailor made interior. The pictures speak for themselves.
