@Super8: I've heard of this truck, the 1964-65 Dodge D100 Custom Sport special, the first muscle truck. :)

I bet a Ford or Chevy truck in that era with almost the same performance had well over 400 horsepower. Back then, Dodge wasn't as large as Ford, Chevy, or even Volkswagen.

The curb weight is 6,100 pounds. Super8 probably made a mistake. There's no way an old pickup truck like this would beat a Ram SRT10. Lol.

Well Shaggy, I think I just found what you like. This truck isn't an ordinary trucks you usually see in old days. It has big 426 Max Wedge with LoadFlite 3 Speed Auto, custom rear axle strut and dual exhaust. This custom pick up truck can be ordered as mandatory opt for D100 and D200 LWB trucks. This 426 Wedge opt cost $1300 and only 50 truck produced from 1964 to 1965. 31 is D100 and 19 is D200. So, if you plan to do a drag race with a lot stuff you want to carry, then this truck is the right choice for you.
