1970 DODGE SWEEPLINE DUDE TRUCK

This is a RARE Truck to begin withonly a few made and on top of that it is SASSY GRASS GREEN OR CALLED GO GREEN WITH WHITE TOP AND C- STRIPE.

In August 1969 Dodge introduced a new model to the Sweptline pick-up series. The new, “Custom Sweptline,” held the title, “The Dude Sport Trim Package.” This new model was essentially the standard D100, (1/2 ton), 128” wheelbase pick-up Dodge already had in production, however it had an added, “body side decal ‘C’ stripe,” available in either black or white. The package also included a, “Dodge Dude Decal,” on the box at the rear marker lamps; tail lamp bezel trim, and dog dish hub caps with trim rings. The Dude's tailgate was unique featuring a, “Dodge,” decal applied on a flat tailgate surface, (minus the typical tailgate’s embossed logo). This decal was under the tailgate release latch and complimented the Dude stripe kit. The Dude’s roof was color matched to the body side stripe and was available in a textured paint option, (similar to rocker guard coating). Dodge passed this off to their customers as a vinyl roof option in advertising literature of the day.

Dude trucks were manufactured in 1970 and 1971 model years. It is widely estimated that somewhere between 1500 - 2000 of these trucks were ever made. So, if this is the first time you are ever hearing about the Dude pickup truck built by Dodge and you're a true blue Mopar fanatic, don't feel bad. Chances are most Mopar fans haven't heard of the Dude either! In fact most Mopar fans probably couldn't even tell anyone what a 1970 or 71 Dodge truck looks like. These trucks are dead rare to begin with. And, finding a Dude anywhere would be like finding a needle in a haystack
