1985 Dodge Ramcharger SE Prospector
|This remarkably preserved Ramcharger can be yours.This is a very affordable way to have a cool retro ride. I actually drove this truck at my wedding.You can choose to keep it stock, or customize it to your liking. Trucks tend to hold their value well; Classics like this one can appreciate in value. Doing some minor repairs to this truck should boost its value nicely. I've chosen to discount the price rather than funding the repairs myself.|
It has run well for me since I bought it in 2009.It's got a clean title. It's got the 5.9L engine everybody wants. It's got lots of shiny chrome trim. It has very little rust for an Ohio truck. Aside from the fender dent it looks very much like the new Ramcharger picture in the 1985 brochure. It is rare to find a 32-year-old truck in such well-preserved original condition, as if it drove straight out of the 80s (it even has the original floor mats). The title states "actual miles" (but it may be impossible to know if it ever went past 99,999). I've barely driven it in the winter because I didn't want the salt to cause rust.I have done some improvements to it during my ownership, including installing new CD player and new Polk Audio 6x9 speakers, repainted the wheels, new rear Goodyear Tires, and new OE style grill. I should also mention thatI just had the oil changed.
As with many older vehicles there is a long list of imperfections and minor repairs needed. These include:the Engine Maint light has been on for a while and I don't know how to reset it, the front diver-side fender has a dent (which never bothered me because I thought it added character), the A/C does not work, the driver-side power window does not work, the power locks are malfunctioning, the gas gauge is not fully accurate (it runs out of gas around 1/8 tank, so I always just put in gas at 1/4 tank), the roof air vent lets in some water (should be an easy fix by smearing some more sealent) there is a rip in the trunk carpet, the ceiling fabric fell (so I pinned it up using red pins), driver-side mirror has a crack, the front-facing driver-side turn signal doesn't always work (I am told the wiring needs fixed). In spite of these flaws the truck is currently driveable and clearly awesome. I've driven it about 800 miles per year, and it sure is fun.I will include a Haynes repair maunal as I won't need it any longer.
