Hi everyone. I'm a newbie. I just picked up a 1984 Rampage that someone spent a lot of money restoring. I haven't gotten it yet, still arranging shipping. It's funny, my first new car was actually a 1984 Shelby Charger (wish I still had it) but sold long ago to buy an Iroc-Z.
I'm looking forward to getting it soon. It looks like it had an interesting history; it started out life as a GTE Bell company car in Erie, PA.
The seller told me it's missing the owner's manual. Anyone have a 1984 Rampage owners manual they want to part with? There's nothing on eBay for 84.
Have a great day all - and it's good to be here!
Thanks...and look at the plate I have on hold:I'll 2nd the welcome to the FLT (Funny Little Truck) Club. These little Trucklets are addictive as you will find out. Enjoy your time here and ask questions when you need answers. Some of us have been playing with them for decades. We all anxiously await your pix, Jer
It appears to be a stock rear bumper, but without the stock end caps. Looks like somebody welded caps onto the ends and repainted the bumper.Hey guys,
I have a question for the group - there's no owner's manual with the Rampage I just bought...does anyone have an extra 84 Rampage Owners Manual they want to part with?
Another question - has anyone ever seen a bumper like on my truck? There's no extensions, but it has closed ends. I'll be able to look at it closer when it gets here sometime mid-March.
Strange - couldn't he have just used the ones off an Omni?It appears to be a stock rear bumper, but without the stock end caps. Looks like somebody welded caps onto the ends and repainted the bumper.
The stock end caps are unique to the truck, and virtually unobtainium at this point. My guess is, the guy that restored the truck couldn't find any, and this was his best solution.
Thanks, I think it does too. Any chance that fleet buyers got a different rear bumper? It was first owned by GTE.No, I don't think it is a stock bumper at all. I enlarged the picture to take a closer look and there isn't a channel in the bumper for the nerf strip to sit into, and on factory bumpers the nerf strip is more centered (up & down) on the bumper. Anyway, I think the bumper looks great!
That's a common misconception. They are different part numbers. As cheap as Chrysler was back then, I'm kind of surprised they didn't just use an omni bumper, but if you look at them side by side, the Omni bumper has a little more curve to it. I don't think the truck bumper is perfectly straight, but it's close.Strange - couldn't he have just used the ones off an Omni?
