Year:1995 Mileage:20901

Libertyville, Illinois, United States

Beautiful 1995 Viper RT 10 in emerald green with tan interior.  20,901 original miles. Only 307 produced in this color in 1995. This is the last year of production at the Mack Avenue Viper plant and this is one of the last 300 generation one vipers produced with side exhaust. Individuals on the line at the Mack Avenue plant pin stamped the last 300 Gen 1 vipers produced near the passenger side window pillar on the foot box with "Last 300 side exhaust" (see PIC in link below). This is one of those cars.


Car is in excellent condition.
  • Tires (Kuhmo) are basically new as are the brakes, both pads and rotors (slotted / drilled rotors).
  • Runs perfectly.  Absolute rocket.  Definitely sticks you in your seat.  400+ HP / 465 ft lbs of torque.  0 to 60 in the 4's.
  • Soft top and side windows are included and are in perfect condition.
  • Car is 100% original with the exception of the original wheels being chromed - the wheels are absolutely perfect, they look brand new, no scuffs / scratches / blemishes.
  • Paint and interior both look excellent.  Paint has a deep shine.  Interior - seats, carpet, etc. are excellent.  In particular there are no issues with the paint around the exhaust, this is a common issue with these cars - this one the paint is perfect.
  • Undercarriage is very clean, I have pics of the undercarriage in the link below - no drips, leaks, etc. whatsoever.
  • Spare and jack all there - look like they've never been out of the car.
  • I've included a copy of the appraisal of the car done for me by Volo Auto Museum at the end of 2012 (very reputable - you can find them on line).  Appraised value at the time was $36K - my reserve is way lower than this.  Just wanted to include it to validate the condition of the car.  This is a great opportunity to get a car like this for a very reasonable price.
  • Just put in a new battery.

Here is a link to some additional pics including the undercarriage...


  • A few very small paint blemishes on the front end from normal use (stones).  One on the driver's rear qtr panel there is a mark about the size of a pencil tip (pointy end).  Nothing significant.
  • One small scratch on the top of the roll-bar (assume someone did this when removing the top).  It's not noticeable unless your looking for it, about 1/2 inch long, not all the way through the finish.
  • Black part of the plastic cover that surrounds the shifter has some pealing in the finish (common with these cars, was going to clean it off and paint it but decided to sell, easy fix).  You can see it in the picture with the stick shift if you look closely.
  • The glove box door has a few marks on it, again common.  It's not really noticeable but wanted to point it out.  Also the glove box will sometimes pop open.  The mechanism looks fine and it happens rarely so I haven't messed with it.  Just want to provide full disclosure.
Also includes...
  • Original top and side windows in perfect condition.
  • Original tonneau cover in perfect condition.
  • Extra set floor mats (original OEM - brand new still in the box).
  • Original Viper car cover.
  • Original 1995 Viper shop manual (very handy)
  • New Dodge OEM fuel filter - planned to change it this spring.
  • New Dodge OEM differential fluid - planned to change it this spring.

Selling as I have kids starting College. (Ouch!)

I do have a loan on the car at my local credit union.  Buyer and I will make arrangements regarding payoff and receipt of the title.  Car will not be released without funds in hand.

I have the car for sale locally and do reserve the right to end the auction early if the car is sold.

Please contact me with questions or for additional pics.  Inspections prior to auction end are welcome.

No scammers, tire kickers, etc. please or I will sick my wife on you.

I will sell internationally.  Buyer is responsible for all shipping arrangements.  I will not release the car until I have the funds in hand.

Thanks and good luck!

These cars are headed to the Great Crusher In The Sky

Fri, 24 Aug 2012

It happens every year. We bid adieu to some cars and trucks that will be missed, and say good riddance to others wondering how they stayed around so long. Whether they're being killed off for slow sales or due to a new product coming along to replace them, the list of vehicles being discontinued after 2012 is surprisingly long and diverse.
CNN Money has compiled a list of departing vehicles, to which we've added a few more of our own. In the slow sales column, cars like the Lexus HS 250h, Mercedes-Benz R-Class and the full Maybach lineup appear, while the Ford Escape Hybrid, Mazda CX-7 and Hyundai Veracruz are all having their gaps filled with more modern and more fuel-efficient alternatives. Obvious exceptions to the rule include models that still sell in decent numbers like the Jeep Liberty and the Chrysler Town & Country (which will eventually be replaced by a crossover-like vehicle).
Check out our gallery of discontinued cars above, then scroll down for more information.

Will Dodge limit 2015 Challenger SRT Hellcat to 1,200 units?

Sun, 20 Jul 2014

With over 700 horsepower on tap and a price tag barely over $60k, Dodge appears on paper to have a winner on its hands with the new Challenger SRT Hellcat. But if you want to get your hands on one, you may have to act quicker than this most powerful of muscle cars covers the quarter-mile.
That's because, according to our compatriots over at Edmunds, Dodge may limit production - in the first year, at least - to just 1,200 units. That would amount to barely a quarter of the Challengers that Dodge moves each month, and would also mean only one Hellcat for every two Dodge dealers in the US - which could lead to some serious contention over which stores and which customers can get their hands on the ultimate Challenger.
Reached for comment, SRT spokesman Dan Reid told Autoblog that "there is no plan to limit production of the Challenger Hellcat," echoing the words of Dodge CEO Tim Kuniskis who told Edmunds: "We don't know what the market demand is." Which doesn't mean that it won't restrict production, but doesn't mean that it will, either. It just hasn't decided yet - or announced any such decision, at any rate - over what will be the final allocation strategy for what could be a game-changing muscle car. That is, at least, until new versions of the Mustang and Camaro come along in pursuit of Dodge's bragging rights...

Chrysler expecting up to 200,000 9-speed transmissions for 3 models this year

Tue, 22 Jan 2013

Striving for improved fuel economy, we already knew that Chrysler will begin using a nine-speed automatic transmission in some of its new products this year, but what we haven't known is that volume at which this gearbox will be used. According to Bloomberg, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has been quoted as saying that the automaker expects to sell close to 200,000 units equipped with this new transmission in 2013. Those gear-rich trannies will be spread out across three models, consisting of the redesigned Chrysler 200, the still-unnamed Jeep Liberty replacement and the Dodge Dart.
This transmission should play a pivotal role in making Chrysler vehicles more competitive in their respective segments. Just for comparison, one of the Dart's key competitors, the Toyota Corolla, still uses a four-speed automatic, and a previous report indicates that the next-generation 200 could get up to 38 miles per gallon on the highway, which is better than most non-hybrid midsize sedans on the market. Marchionne says that the new Jeep model is expected during the second quarter of this year, but there is no word as to when the new 200 or nine-speed Dart will debut, but clearly Dodge would like to have the transmission in its compact yesterday. As for that volume figure, it definitely doesn't seem out of reach since the Dart, Liberty and 200 combined for a total of more than 225,000 units in 2012.
How many more gears can we expect in future cars? Probably not many more, since the CEO of transmission-builder ZF, Stefan Sommer, previously stated that nine speeds was the "natural limit" for transmissions.
