I love it when folks think outside of the box, and Chad Worth of Pilot Grove, Missouri, definitely qualifies with his awesome '60 Dodge D-100.
Chad's "Rambunctious" D-100 was a ground-up project that's a perfect example of what can be achieved with a great imagination, a lot of skill, and a bunch of good old-fashioned elbow grease. Chad began with a well-worn old workhorse, which he stripped down completely and rebuilt component by component. The original frame was modified to accept a Mustang II-style IFS setup and a four-bar coilover rear suspension assembly. He also added four-wheel disc brakes, a power rack-and-pinion assembly, and a Summit Racing aluminum fuel tank. Powering the D-100 is a muscular 380hp, 360-cube Mopar crate engine backed by a TCI-prepped 727 trans. The pickup rolls on a quartet of Centerline Corona wheels, 16s and 17s, wrapped in Fusion 205/55R and 255/50R17. When it came time to address the body Chad spared no effort. The body was massaged back into pristine shape and then treated to a complete shave, front and rear rolled pans, a smoothed firewall and tailgate, a filled cowl, and a power bedcover. Chad also removed the cab driprails before coating the Dodge in a custom-mixed paint color he likes to call Rambunctious Blue.
