A mechanical clone of the Dodge D100, Chrysler applied the Fargo nameplate to these trucks in Canada and abroad. It was a way to differentiate what was being sold on Plymouth lots back in the day after purchasing the company – originally out of Chicago – in the early 1920s.
This particular 1966 Fargo D100 may look relatively original – paint and wheels aside – but is in fact a 400-horse beast sitting on serious rubber powered by a 383 big block. It underwent an 18-month restoration about 10 years ago, by the previous owner, which involved complete disassembly and a full rebuild.
Highlights include a media-blasted frame, revamped cabin, heavily massaged Magnum motor, and custom paint job. As if that were not enough, the current owner has shelled out some $50,000 in additional upgrades to make this 1966 Fargo an amazingly cool classic truck.
