In 1976, the first production Dodge Warlock was introduced following the public’s positive response to a pickup originally designed as an auto show concept vehicle. The Warlock was a factory-personalized pickup that could “play as hard as it works,” according to the period literature, complete with bucket seats, “fancy wheels, fat tires,” chrome-plated running boards, real oak sideboards and special gold accent stripes inside and out. Production ran until 1979.
