Vintage Ford Broncos and Chevy Blazers get all the attention, but here’s a Pick of the Day for the Mopar crowd, a 1984 Dodge Ramcharger, a beefy 4X4 with arguably the most-macho of brand names.
Ramcharger fed into the trend of the time for large, powerful utility trucks ready for off-roading and backwoods fun as well as towing, hauling, worksite duty and farm chores.
Ramchargers, basically shortened-wheelbase versions of the Dodge D-series pickup truck, were built from 1974 through 1993. They had 2 doors and back seats, and the majority of them came with V8 engines.
This Ramcharger is a low-mileage example, showing 42,760 miles on its odometer, which is believed to be accurate, according to the Denver, Colorado, dealer advertising the truck on ClassicCars.com. It is equipped with part-time 4-wheel drive and powered by a 318cid V8 engine with automatic transmission.
The truck seems to be a well-preserved survivor with “mostly original paint,” the dealer says, and all chrome and trim in good condition, factory wheels with original-style hubcaps and good all-terrain tires.
The Dodge has a “clean original interior throughout” with original gauges, the ad notes, and the bucket seats and rear bench look to be in nice condition. It has power steering and power brakes and factory air conditioning, although its working condition is not mentioned in the ad.
These trucks, along with Broncos and Blazers, were built for adventure, and a new generation of car collectors are discovering how much fun they are. This Ramcharger with its apparent low mileage seems like a nice find.
The asking of price of $17,900 is also quite reasonable.
