Dodge Deora

The Dodge Deora was no ordinary concept. Styled by Harry Bentley Bradley and crafted by customisers Mike & Larry Alexander, the idea was to integrate traditional hot rod methods and innovative, forward-thinking designs into one of Detroit's new cab-over pickups. Chrysler supplied an A100 chassis, a blank canvas for the pair to lavish swathes of sheetmetal upon. It took two years to build, but the reception was better than Chrysler could ever have hoped for; the Deora informed the design of a generation of Hot Wheels models as well as winning nine awards at the 1967 Detroit Autorama.
