Rampage 2.2 R/T
Metallic black with red stripes
Basic Rampage with nothing extra
This Rampage was owned new by NASA after the Chrysler bailout by the government. NASA owned two at this facility and were used for security patrol vehicles. They were plain Jane models with no power steering, cruise, power brakes or air conditioning. Had bench seats. They were owned by several auction houses after that and then a fellow from Nashville bought both of them. He restored one for his wife & started on this one and then had to quit. I bought it from him with supposedly 37,000 miles on it. I went completely thru the running gear, overhauled the engine and installed a new windshield and interior. It is a no rust truck from the deep south. I have 15" wheels & tires on it and added the 82/83 Charger fender scoops and hood bulge. Even the pickup box is dent free. I overhauled the 5220 carb and am still having idling issues. It has a lope as if the engine has a modified cam and no matter where I set the idle mixture screw it still lopes. All new vac lines, new computer......you name it, its new. Extremely fun to drive & take to the shows. Starts, accelerates & runs just fine at cruise. Just idle issues. By the way, the Rampage "R/T" stands for either "Rampage/Truck"......or "Richards/Truck"........ Gets laughs at the car shows, although most folks don't know there wasn't a R/T model. Most didn't even know there was a Rampage truck to start with........
