Don't Call Me Scamp: 1983 Dodge Rampage

The Chrysler L-platform was a short lived experiment from 1982-84 into the Ute world.  The Dodge Rampage and Plymouth Scamp didn't exactly set the world on fire with roughly 40,000 cars sold over three years.   With all the 2018 interest in camino style of cars and the lack of available options, there should be someone interested in a gently used Dodge Rampage.  There are a myriad of performance turbo engines and drivetrain parts that could help this car move with much more gusto.  Find this 1983 Dodge Rampage for sale in Hinsdale, VT for $4,000 via craigslist.  Tip from Rich.

Details from the seller:

Very rare, 1983 prospector series Dodge rampage. 70k original miles. Texas car, zero rust. Very original condition. 5 speed. Couple of minor chips, no door dings. Windshield very good. Runs excellent, drives great. Converted R134 A/C. The cluster right side has a chip missing in picture. Located in New Hampshire, come drive it away. I'm asking 4k as this is probably the finest example on the east coast. I'd like to see this go to a good home.

There is not much to criticize on this Rampage and it is even a stick shift.  This may well be the cleanest Rampage on the market at any price point.

  1. Just curious as I'm assuming this is LONG GONE. However do you have any others in stock?
    I had one of these during 83 - 92 and yes, it was a cheapy care, but I want to make a field vehicle out of one here in Arizona.
