1969 D100 Sweptline Pickup on 2040-cars
Clements, Minnesota, United States
This is a nice running 1969 dodge pickup. I bought it a couple years ago to restore but haven't done anything to it since I got it and don't think I will. I have too many other projects! It has a 318 motor with a 2 barrel carb and a 4speed manual transmission. The motor starts and runs great and is very strong and the transmission shifts into all the gears good and sounds good too. The gas tank is very rusty inside and has been disconnected. That is how I bought it. I do have a really nice tank that will go with the truck. I just never put it in the truck. I have a 2gallon plastic tank that I use to run the truck and drive it around the yard. The brake master will need to be replaced too. It is stuck and I can't move it at all so it doesn't have any brakes. The lights all work except for the clearance lights on top of the cab. I'm not sure if they all work or not. All the gauges and dash lights seem to work too.
The body is pretty solid but the rocker panels are rusted out on both sides and floor pan on the driver side has a few holes in it. (I took pictures of the rust damage that I know of) There are also some minor dents and scrapes on the truck and the grille and front bumper are bent alittle too. ( there is a tree stump still stuck in the front bumper too) The drivers door will need to adusted alittle. It closes ok and latches but you have pull up on it to make it close good. The glass is all good except for the windshield. It is cracked on the drivers side. The seat will need recovering and the dash also has some cracks in it. This truck will need some work but is very solid for 1969 and is very restorable. It always starts and runs great and the motor is very strong and doesn't smoke. I tried to describe this truck as good as I can so please look at the pictures and if you have any questions please ask them before you bid!!!!!!!!!! I will accept all kinds of payments but will keep the truck until the funds have cleared. I can store the truck for up to 3 months but I expect payment within 10 days of the end of the sale. Thankyou and good luck bidding!!!!!!!!!

It's easy to play the "Would you rather have a New X or an Old Y with a bunch of upgrades?" game more often than we care to admit, but the crew at Car and Driver have taken bench racing to the next level with their latest video. In it, the magazine pits a brand-new 2014 SRT Viper against a highly modified 1997 Dodge Viper GTS. There are 16 years between the time this particular GTS rolled off the production line and when the new car bowed, but that doesn't mean the old snake's owners have been sitting on their hands.

Thanks to a spate of modifications, the GTS offers up a better power to weight ratio than the new machine, but is that enough to overcome the technological leap forward represented by the 2014 Viper? We won't spoil it for you. You'll just have to check out the full clip below for yourself.
Students and teachers at a Washington community college are up in arms following an order from Chrysler that it must destroy the pre-production Dodge Viper that was donated to the school's automotive technology program ten years ago.

The Viper in question is said to be the fourth off the production line, based on its VIN, and has had its emissions controls disabled, allowing its ten-cylinder engine to produce 600 horsepower, according to a report from Yahoo! Autos. As one of the first Vipers ever produced, the school's AT instructors claim it could be worth $250,000 in a museum, while a local news report purports that Jay Leno once tried to purchase the car, but the sale was prevented by Chrysler.
As pointed out by our friends at Autobytel, though, there are a lot of things in this story that don't quite add up. Immediately noticeable from the news report embedded below - which shows the car at South Puget Sound Community College - is that the car in question is not a 1992 model. When the Viper went on sale in 1992, it was only available as an RT/10 with a (flimsy) soft top, like the red car shown above. But the car featured in the report from KING5 News (inset image) is clearly a hardtop Viper GTS, which didn't enter production until 1996. And even if, as reported by a local newspaper, the hardtop featured is a prototype, it doesn't explain the lack of another iconic feature of the first Vipers - their distinctive side pipes. This kind of pokes holes in the school's argument that this is the fourth Viper to ever roll down the line. At best, this appears to be a pre-production Viper GTS.
You'll be forgiven for not having heard about the TV show Defiance - it actually hasn't aired its first episode yet. The new science fiction show about an alien war against Earth in the near future seems like a perfect fit for the SyFy channel, and, apparently one that Dodge saw as a slick marketing opportunity for its Charger sedan.
Here in Chicago, Dodge has given a large corner of its show stand to the Defiance Charger, a car that won't be skipped by any Mad Max fans in attendance at this year's show. The Charger boasts one hell of a gnarly patina under a confusingly welded cage of tube steel, as well as window bars, a grille guard in front, and big, knobby truck tires. There aren't any obvious guns or turrets on the outside of the vehicle, so we can only hope that the characters driving it go well-armed.
Look for the Charger to make its star turn in Defiance when the series premieres on SyFy on April 15 at 9:00 PM EST. Also, there's said to be a Defiance video game in the works, too, so you may get a chance to steer the burly Dodge for yourself. Find a trailer for the show, below, as well.
