I bought a '73 d100 long bed off of my dad last week for 600 dollars. My question: is their any help for one of these? do they look good fixed up? i plan on streeting it out, lowering it, fat tires, and throw some money into the little 318..someone please help!!!
If you just bought it, apparently it is something you like, correct? I think it will look cool after you get done doing what you mentioned. I would even paint it flat black.

Yes there is, I have a 1972 dodge pickup longbed and it look good, I made my into a show and go pickup, just take your time with it.
yes the long bed pickup look great,the 318 you can make it go as fast or dress it up to look good to.I have a 1972 long bed pickup D100 with a old school tires and wheels on it,It"s look very nice and sound mean,take the 318 and put a set of headers,cam it up a little.
Hey man long bed short bed don't matter it's a 70's and there cool trucksLike the other guy said just take your time? I almost gave up a few timesthen one day i just went out and started and till this day i never stopped lolCongratz on your new ride.
This is my baby 1973 D100
I have a 74 D100 which now has a 1968 440 HP in it. It has Lil Red Express grille & quad h/lights with a early 80's 8 ft bed. It runs low 13's in 1/4 mi. I had a 318 with a B&M supercharger on it for about 8 months (only drove it to the local track in Cecil county Md. for the most part ) & this really pepped up the old 318, but needed to go faster & I had a 440, so.... Anyway I still have the B&M ( which fits under the hood of the truck! ) & if your interested, make me an offer. It is complete with manifold & 2 different pulleys for different boost. I still have instructions & I installed it myself, it was not hard at all. I originally was asking $1200 ( almost $2200 new ), but have recently dropped that to $1000. Anyway, good luck & have fun. Anything I can help with, let me know. Barry P.S. I also have a set of headers for your 318, brand new in box.
RACE CARS - NOT GREYHOUNDS
I have an 86 d-100 I put a ton of work into it and it turned out pretty nice. I tore the bed off and custom made a woooden flatbed for it and it looks much better than original. Just to add i put a 3 inch exaust stack up the back of the cab for a little more pop to the look, but it depends on your appeal.
Hey you still got those headers? What size outlet on them? I've got a '78 with a 318 that could use a rebuild bad. Been trying to find a manifold with bigger outlets since headers tend to dissapate the heat a bit too fast for the cold Idaho winters, but the right set of headers may draw my attention.
I see 22 inch wheels in this truck's future......
yall really brought back a dead post.

My '73 D100 won me free monster truck tickets last year. Unfortunately, it was for "Ugliest Truck in Indy" contest on Fox59, 3rd Place. Gonna put some work into him and maybe win some tickets for best looking truck in Indy this year.
Dodge is actually one of my favorite. The other favorites I have are Jeep and Chrysler. They are the ones that I will go back to time and time again, unless I somehow find a way to afford the Bugatti Veyron. Realistically speaking though, these brands are really awesome and produce great automobiles. A car dealership in Springfield can assist you in finding one with anything you need.

Be conservative- 440 if you have the money, if not rod the 318. Paint it a good color, I like Tor-Red(Plymouth guy here)AKA Hemi Orange. No wheels higher than 18, just my preference.
where didi you find lowering parts for the front I cant locate them for my 73 short bed stepside anywhere
Moparts has a great thread on lowering them right now, looks like the van lower control arms are the way to go. Here is the link
