Early 70’s Dodge D-Series Pickup

There is something about old pickup trucks; they just have so much character.

Some information about the early 1970’s Dodge Pickups via Wikipedia:

A redesign of the D Series for 1972 that lasted until 1980 introduced a more rounded look. This redesign for the third generation, that spanned until 1993 with minor changes, included new features such as an independent front suspension and pocketed taillights (the distinctive reverse on top lights were recessed to .25 in (6.4 mm) to avoid damage in loading docks and confined spaces). Styling cues, such as the scalloped hood and rounded fender wells, were similar to the rounded, smooth look of the 1971 Plymouth Satellite. These trucks were built with a considerable amount of galvanized steel to resist rust and corrosion making them very durable. Because of this, today these trucks make great restoration projects.
