     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.

Toyota, Lexus dominate KBB's Best Resale Value Awards

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 18:30:00 EST

Toyota and Lexus stormed the 2014 Kelley Blue Book Best Resale Value Awards, winning a combined 18 categories including best brand and best luxury brand. This marks the third year in a row that both automakers have won the Brand and Luxury Brand resale value awards. In all, Toyota won 11 categories and Lexus won seven.
Honda made a good showing, as well, winning two segments (Accord Plug-In Hybrid and Civic Si) and putting one car on the top-10 Best Resale Value list (CR-V). Chevrolet did even better, winning two segments (with the V6 Camaro and the Corvette) and placing three cars on the top-10-overall list (again, the Camaro and Corvette, plus the Silverado 1500).
The other winners came from Jeep, Dodge, Infiniti, Subaru and Audi. To give you a clearer picture of the Toyota and Lexus domination, their 18 mentions represents more than half of the 34 awards (including the top-10-overall list).

11 vehicles from Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas worth watching

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 14:14:00 EST

This weekend will see the world's collector car crowds descend on Las Vegas, NV for one of the biggest shows on Barrett-Jackson's popular auction circuit. There are hundreds of vehicles up for bidding, ranging from a brand-new Lamborghini Aventador to a spattering of Art Deco classics and a huge swath of classic muscle cars.
While it's virtually impossible to assemble an inarguable list of the best cars coming during the three-day, 700-plus vehicle auction, we've sifted through the listings for this year's show - it was a tough assignment, we promise - and assembled a list of what we think will be some of the most interesting lots. We'll admit, it's a bit heavy on American iron, but if you browse BJ's listings, you'll come to a similar conclusion. Still, scroll down for our list of what we think will be the most interesting vehicles at the upcoming auction.

Fiat-Chrysler shows its SEMA lineup

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 13:29:00 EST

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles already previewed its 2014 SEMA show lineup with some slick renders. Now, the automaker has finally showed us the actual cars, and among the group there are definitely some that stand out more than others.
Dodge is really showing off its muscle at this year's show with four concepts that all pump up the power of the brand's models. Perhaps most interesting among them is the Challenger T/A Concept (pictured above) in striking Sublime Green and matte black. It's meant to resemble the classic Trans Am racer from the '70s. Under the hood is a 6.4-liter V8, and to fit the vintage style there's a pistol-grip gearshift inside.
The Charger R/T also gets some attention with the Mopar concept that shows off what FCA's aftermarket performance arm can do. Mods include an updated body kit, cold-air intake for the 5.7-liter V8 and a coil-over suspension kit. Beyond that, the Dart R/T Concept looks a lot meaner with a black hood with duct work that leads straight to the air intake. The rest of the compact sedan is dolled up in O-So-Orange paint and is fitted with upgrades to improve handling like a coil-over suspension and big brake kit from the Mopar catalog.
