First the Bronco II, then the IH Scout and now…the Dodge A100 van-truck! I’m getting more obscure by the minute, but check out the flat face on this Mopar mother. How could you not love a machine that looks like that, big-old spit screen windshield and everything. Its a van with 30% of its sheet metal whittled off â€” like someone just took a sawzall and chopped it up into a truck. American engineering at its finest. I suppose it does makes sense when you consider the fact that the A-100 was offered as a straight-up van as well. I much prefer the truck version though â€” especially in that robin’s egg two-tone.
Fun facts (from Wikipedia): The design of the A100 was inspired by the WV Type 2. Plus, the A100 was one of the original Hot Wheels cars that launched in 1968.
