1983 Dodge Rampage

Some fathers go to great lengths to indulge their daughters.  My daughter liked barbies, so more than a few found their way into our house.  Other dads bought their daughters mini-car-trucks from the 80's and painted them pink.  Find this 1983 Dodge Rampage for sale in Tacoma, WA for $1,950 via craigslist.  This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!

"Motivation" is provided by the evergreen Chrysler 2.2L inline 4 producing 92hp when new.  After 133K miles some horses may be unaccounted for and the rest might have picked up a smoking habit.  They've also partially become a horse of a different color.

The interior looks remarkably well preserved.  Just some wear on the driver's seat bottom, but everything else looks good for a 33 year old Dodge with 133k on the clock.  Also note the magic gear-stick on the floor that can be used to stir a rare optional 5th gear.
