     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.

Detroit's new fleet of donated police cars have safety issues [w/video]

Wed, 23 Oct 2013 16:30:00 EST

In a show of generosity in mid-August, Detroit's business leaders donated $8 million to the Police Department and Fire Department in order to buy 100 new police vehicles and 23 EMS ambulances. But now officers have discovered - and complained - that the police vehicles have glaring safety issues, Deadline Detroit reports. It is not made clear what models of the fleet vehicles - which include police versions of the Ford Taurus, the Chevrolet Caprice and the Dodge Charger - are affected by the safety issues.
Officers reportedly have complained that the Plexiglass partition separating front-seat officers and back-seat prisoners is easily breached, and that the front passenger seat is installed too close to the dashboard. Prisoners who manage to writhe out of their handcuffs can bend the Plexiglass and reach into the cockpit, and sitting too close to the dashboard can render airbags more dangerous and make officers more vulnerable to injury in a crash.
Mark Diaz, president of the Detroit Police Officers Association, received the complaints and reportedly said the vehicles would get safety updates addressing the issues. But Deadline Detroit reports that it checked some of the offending police cars and, as of the last few days, they hadn't been updated.

2013 Dodge Dart GT offers subtle menace in compact form

Mon, 14 Jan 2013 09:20:00 EST

Dodge has already shared all of the relevant information about its all-new 2013 Dart GT, but it wasn't until now that we've seen the car, live and in person. The slightly meaner front fascia and bigger wheels look great on the Dodge, and the red-on-black perforated seats are sporting in an aftermarket sort of way.
To recap: The Dart GT also gets a bit more power, using a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine to make 184 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque. A starting price of $20,995 will get you LED taillights, dual exhaust, an 8.4-inch touchscreen and a 7.0-inch TFT display.
Feel free to re-acquaint yourselves with the full Dodge Dart GT information in the press release below, or have a leisurely browse through our gallery of live images.

Challenger A/T Unlimited Concept could be your next Hellcat-powered ORV

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 16:32:00 EST

This past June I spent an excellent day hanging out with Joey Ruiter, driving and discussing his Reboot Buggy project. Before heading home, I let him know that he was more than welcome to keep me abreast of whichever new automotive project he'd get into. You can never have too many car designers and one-off fabricators in your Rolodex, right?
Ruiter recently made good with the follow-up, emailing me with details on this Dodge Challenger A/T Untamed Concept that pushes a lot of hot buttons for the muscle car and off-roading enthusiasts.
This all-terrain Mopar is a lot more than a Challenger body dropped on a truck chassis, too. A materialized version of the A/T would included a completely new, long-travel suspension, skid plates, body armor and rock sliders, and obviously flared fenders to help accommodate a hellacious set of off-road-ready tires. The dramatically revised underpinnings would be topped with a slick graphics package and a killer lower light bar, all making the A/T look quite cohesive in its own, radical way. And the result would be a car no longer limited to mere road-driving.
