     This truck underwent significant restoration after I purchased it.  The engine is a Roadmaster rebuilt.  At the time it was professionally installed, the transmission was also professionally rebuilt as were the front end mechanicals.  Together, they have about 22,000 miles on them.  The upholstery, interior door panels, dash cover, windshield, soft top, bed liner and tonneau cover and tires were replaced or added at the same time the truck was repainted black cherry.  It is a rare 4X4 and it is equipped as described below.  It has been kept under cover except when it is driven.

     This was the first postwar production ragtop pickup and Dodge billed it as " the ultimate fun truck."

     The Dakota Sport convertible features a manual vinyl top that can be folded back or completely removed.  The unique hauler is based on a two-door pickup with a metal roof on its cab, and was assembled at Chrysler's Dodge City truck complex in Warren, Michigan.  From there, the trucks were shipped to American Sunroof Co., (ASC) several suburbs away.  ASC sliced the roof off and added the necessary components to turn  it into a convertible for open-air excitement.

     These Dakota Sport convertibles were sold as either a 4X2 or shift-on-the-fly 4X4 with a base price of $14,425.  All ( only in 1989) trucks came fitted with a 125-hp fuel injected V-6 mated with a five-speed manual or optional three-speed automatic transmission.  Standard equipment included an integral padded sport roll bar, 15-in. cast-aluminum wheels, a tachometer, an AM/FM stereo cassette radio, deluxe wipers, power steering, power windows and door locks, dual remote outside mirrors and fog lights.

     Dodge produced these convertibles in 1989, 1990, and 1991.  In 1989, 2842 of these were built, 909 were built in 1990 and only 8 in 1991.

This was and is a unique vehicle.  Make it yours.

2015 Dodge Charger R/T NHRA Funny Car burns rubber into SEMA [w/video]

Tue, 04 Nov 2014 19:26:00 EST

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is showing off a completely redesigned Dodge Charger Funny Car at this year's SEMA Show in Las Vegas and it's ready to blow through the NHRA timing lights next year. Initially, the shape might look like any of the other entrants in its class burning through the quarter mile, but this is the first comprehensive rethink for the racecar's aerodynamics since 2006, says Dodge.
Draped in classy red and black Mopar livery, the 2015 Dodge Charger R/T NHRA Funny Car tries to share the front and rear styling with its roadgoing counterpart, plus the scallops along the side, but this racer is all about crossing the finish line first.
The major goals for the redesign included making the body stronger and lighter without sacrificing aerodynamics, and that has been done with materials like Kevlar and carbon fiber. However, engineers have accomplished even more. By moving the cockpit further back, they've increased engine clearance and improved driver visibility.

eBay Find of the Day: Viper Defender from '90s TV show

Fri, 24 May 2013 19:16:00 EST

As car lovers, it's always hard to find a good television show with decent cars, but what the 1990s show Viper lacked in acting, scripting and plot, it more than made up for with cool cars. For starters, the lead car was a Dodge Viper RT/10, but, on screen, it was able to morph into its "Defender" mode making it an armored coupe with a full arsenal of weapons.
Fortunately, you don't have to be a fan of the bad show to love its lead car, and if you really want one, a Defender is up for auction right now on eBay. According to the listing, this car is the real deal - not a clone - and it comes with a V8 engine (not sure what happened to the V10?) and plenty of swag and memorbilia. No word on its actual asking price, but with a day left and 42 bids already, the reserve has not been met at $133,400. The listing does add that this same car was listed at Mecum back in 2010, but did not get sold, even with a bid of $270,000.

Chrysler's Woodward Dream Cruise festivities include Ram concept truck debut

Tue, 13 Aug 2013 07:00:00 EST

The streets will be crowded next weekend along Woodward Avenue in Royal Oak, Michigan for the 19th Annual Woodward Dream Cruise. As part of the run-up to the festivities, Chrysler has announced that all of its brands - Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat, SRT and Mopar - will bring along their latest vehicles. Also included will be a collection of classic American cars and various activities for attendees at the official Chrysler location on the corner of Woodward and 13 Mile Road.
Special to this year, Ram brand director Bob Hegbloom and head of design John Dehner will unveil a Ram concept truck on Saturday. Chrysler will also bring Ryan Friedlinghaus of West Coast Customs fame along to show off a few custom Chrysler-made vehicles of his own. Fans of the brand on Facebook will get the chance to virtually customize a vehicle from the automaker's portfolio, with the winner getting their dream car built for them by Chrysler. Pretty cool stuff, no?
As in past years, Ford and General Motors will have an official presence at the event as well, and you can expect to see plenty of cars of all makes and models from all parts of the globe. The madness starts this Friday, August 16, from 4:30 PM to 10 PM, with the main event taking place on Saturday, from 9 AM to 9 PM. For more details on the show, including events and their times, check out the press release below.
