Sweptline Survivor: 1969 Dodge D100 Pickup

Dodge Sweptlines are trucks that are almost always met with interest and appreciation. This particular truck is easy to appreciate as it wears its original paint, and still putts around with its original drivetrain. Clean, and straight, this beauty is offered for $7,500. Find it here on craigslist out of Littleton, Colorado.

Almost appearing as a concourse winner, this Sweptlines engine bay is beautiful. Motivated by a 318 cubic inch V8, and a 4 speed transmission, this truck is likely an easy and fun driver. Cream is one of those colors that always seems to be dirty due to its light coloring. With no rust or dirt reflecting in the engine bay, this Sweptline looks like it has spent all of its time in a garage. Appearing like a brochure photo, the interior of the cab is excellent.  The bench has been reupholstered, but despite this fact, the rest of the interior looks great. The paint on the tunnel is not damaged, and the dash and door panels are mint.

Looking at the photos, you almost want to think that this truck looks perfect, and has recently been repainted. Well, there are a few very minor blemishes to the paint. The interior edge of the tailgate has some slight surface rust, and there are some paint marks on the driver rear corner of the bed.  All of the trim looks to be accounted for, and in nice shape. The oval taillights are such a unique feature that are plain groovy on this pickup. The awesome “Super D100” tail stripes look great on this light colored truck, and really give a salute to Mopars of the time. Are you a fan of these Dodge Sweptlines?

    Dang! This one’s right down the road from me. Tempting…..

    Yes, tempting is the emotion I feel too….

    Super Bee stripes, wheel-well trim and vinyl roof are akin to a farmer wearing a tutu. I’ll wait for a monotone Fargo thanks.

      If it’s as from the factory, the roof should be a textured paint rather than vinyl (hence the satin-like reflection). Mine is white over medium blue metallic. I’ve never seen that stripe in any of the literature, so it may be a dealer/owner addition.

      Unfortunately, the bed-side has been cut for what is probably an auxiliary fuel tank. Useful, I guess, but I’m not a fan of the visual effect.

      Really. And his wife taking a Zumba class!

    That’s pretty funny, NIck, I agree, I’m not sure who they were trying to sell this to. It was the 60’s, with those “puffy” graphics, but it was still a truck. There’s a shift lever, for ya’. Bullet proof, but not the fanciest vehicle at the country club.

    • Aaron

      For an idea of who they were trying to sell these to, just google “Don Knotts Dodge truck”. It will all make sense…at least from a marketing standpoint. You don’t have to agree with the logic behind it.

        LOL, Aaron, “The Dude”. Show up at the construction site with that. Oh, Barney, look what they’ve reduced you to. The poor man, just couldn’t make it after Andy Griffith.

        Wheres mah truck?

      • Treebeardzz

        The “Dude” was actually quite a truck with the popular option of a 383 or 440. Bet that loud pedal put a smile on Barney’s face.

    I am indeed fond of these Sweptline trucks. This one is a beauty and I would love to own it. I would prefer a painted top. Interesting to me is the Super Bee stripe. I own a 69 G-Code Coronet 440. It has the trim on the sides. The car is in need of restoration. I have considered this stripe on it with the words “Coronet 440” in the circle instead of “Super Bee”. I am also trying to decide to keep or remove the trim after paint. Most of it is in excellent condition. If it is factory, then I will probably leave it on. I think that many of these cars had it removed and thrown away for a cleaner appearance. Your opinion is welcomed.

    D200-Here’s mine.

      That’s cool

    one more

    OOPS. They claim “original paint” yet include pics BEFORE they put the stripe on it. Maybe they meant “original color” + the stripe added. Also, HIGHLY unlikely they would black out the front bumper and grill with the polished trim everywhere else. Those trucks rust from the inside out on the roof(I know, I have a ’70 W200) and flat black hides repair work well. Side mirrors are at least 20 years off – you can see where they painted over the screws for the factory mirrors. No mention of miles or pictures of the odometer. “Original Survivor”? Not even close. Too many things do not add up. Buyer beware.

    • MC

      Calm down TBZ…
      The truck is original factory paint.
      The roof is pebble finish black from factory.
      The rear stripes are vinyl and were added after the truck was buffed.
      Mileage is approximately 100,380
      Mirrors screw painted from factory.
      Aftermarket mirrors were added at some point.

    Dodge didn’t sell many of these compared to Chev and Ford during these years, and it’s rare to see one that isn’t beat up and or rusted badly. This truck looks great, and is indestructible. I’d leave it just as I found it. Big Andy, I love your’s too, thanks for sharing.

    Not completely original, but nice. Sweptlines are finally getting the market attention they’v e long deserved.

    I read somewhere that these (perhaps earlier models) were manufactured in Israel. Does anyone know about that?

    • Steve B

      Swepties were produced in Israel and South America even after they stopped production in the US. You can tell the different in the export models by the bed sides, the crease is straight, not swept in a curve. But no US-sold Sweptlines were built overseas.

      From Wikipedia: From 1965 until the early 80s, D series trucks were assembled in Warren, Michigan by the Chrysler Corporation. Foreign models were manufactured by the Automotive Equipment Group (מכשירי תנועה בע”מ) in Israel at a new factory located at Nazareth-I’llit: Automotive Industries (תעשיות רכב נצרת-עלית), using straight-four and -six gasoline engines with manual transmission. This factory also produced the Jeep Wagoneer SUV for the Israeli army, and UK Ford Escort and Ford Transit vehicles for the civilian market. The D Series were made both for the civilian market and for the Israeli army. The models were D100 & D200 light trucks, D500 truck, and the D600 truck with the straight-six engine and having on-demand four-wheel drive. There was also a bus version made (mainly for army use). This bus was a 20-seat bus built on the chassis of the D500 truck using the straight-four engine with front and rear hydraulic doors, as well as the complete D500 front end and dashboard

      Yep, they were produced in Nazereth. Back in the ’80s when I lived on a kibbutz (Yizreal) there was one sitting behind a barn, petty blue with a 225 and 3 on the tree. I asked if I could have it to restore and was told, no. Maybe it’s still there.
