1963? Dodge A100 just purchased

Post by rusty » Sun Apr 03, 2016 2:33 pm

I just bought this original CA Black Plate A100, the title says its a 1963 and the ID plate says its a A120. Can anyone help me decipher what it is I just bought?

Great truck! Cant help with year but it has 355's and a 727 which is cool. I was thinking closer to 65 but not schooled on vans

I was wondering.... what's the deal with the tag in Spanish? Maybe a van that was made for "Export"???

Sorry, not much help with vans either. There are some guys that are A100 van fans here though! NEAT looking van too! :salut

I noticed the Spanish also as well as the 3 speed 727, hopefully someone out there is well versed in these TRUCKS and can help shed some light.

Thats strange - the title says 63 and the black license plates are also 63. I think it is a 64 just not sure.

The vin number says it is a 66 A100 pickup, which is exactly what it appears to be. Does the vin number on the title match what is on the door post?

Yes they match, is it the vin sequence that defines it as a 66?

Hey, mine's titled as a 69, but the sequence # says it's a 68. I wouldn't worry about it.
