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.

Dodge has added a bit of spice to its Hemi-powered Challenger for 2013, offering up this new Redline package that makes its official debut at the Chicago Auto Show. The R/T Redline builds on the Rallye Redline kit that was created for the V6 Challenger, and we like how these subtle changes add to the muscle coupe's already classic styling.

In addition to the black chrome 20-inch wheels with red accents, the R/T Redline adds subtle graphics along the beltline. Inside, cars equipped with the six-speed manual transmission get a performance tuned exhaust that allows the engine to send a full 375 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque to the rear wheels. (Redline Challengers with the five-speed automatic produce 372 hp and 400 lb-ft.)
The Redline package retails for $1,995 and can be had on both Challenger R/T and R/T Plus models. Scroll down for the full press blast.
After almost a year on the market it, it is becoming more clear to Dodge how customers like to option out their Darts, so the automaker has combined popular features into three special edition packages and sweetened the prices. Start with a standard 2013 Dart and add either the SXT or Limited "Special Editions" or Rallye Appearance Group, and you'll save yourself a lot of box checking.

The $595 Dart SXT Special Edition takes the trim just above the base model and adds a new grille, dark-tinted headlights and projector fog lights, LED racetrack taillights, cruise control and audio controls on the leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Limited Special Edition starts with the top-end model and adds a power sunroof, heated front seats and steering wheel, dual-zone climate control and Nappa leather seats among other features, for $1,810.
The Rallye Appearance Group (pictured) is a package for the SXT, and it blacks out the front fascia, throws on 17-inch wheels and some badging for $395. The new special editions are reaching dealers now and could help the Dart's sales to further improve after a slow start. You can find out more about them in the press release below.
In the market for a Jeep Grand Cherokee or Dodge Durango? Well, if you fancy a more expressive color for your new SUV, you'd better get your order in, or plan on waiting until well into 2015.
The SUVs will be limited to just four monochromatic shades - black, white, silver and gray - until at least February, thanks to an upgrade to the paint shop at the two vehicles' Jefferson North factory. For the Grand Cherokee, that means it's losing more than half its color palette while the Durango is dropping two-thirds of its color catalog.
The loss of colors is inconvenient, but the upgrade will have a slightly bigger effect on the overall supply of SUVs, as Chrysler will need to end its relentless build pace at the factory for a three-week shutdown starting on December 22. The good news for fans of the SUVs is that once the work is completed, we should see a gradual expansion of the color palettes for both the Durango and Grand Cherokee, beyond even what's offered now.
