What’s It Worth?? 1982 Dodge Rampage Pickup ..Chrysler’s Mini Pickup Changed The Rules

As Time Goes By Everything Eventually Becomes Collectible. What's You 1980's Car Worth?

Based on the Omni/O24 platform the Dodge Rampage and its cousin the Plymouth  Scamp was Chryslers answer to the popular VW Rabbit Pickup. Produced between 1982-1984 it was the USA's first and last car based front wheel drive pickup.

By the early 1980's boosted by sales of the all new K-Car Lee Iaccoca and Chrysler were on a roll. Wanting to be the Anti-GM Chrysler brought out some very non mainstream vehicles at that time. Seeing a need for a light hauler the Rapmage was introduced in 1982. Powered by the soon to be workhorse 2.2 liter four cylinder it had a whopping 96 horsepower. Shifting was done by a rubbery 5 speed manual or a 3 speed auto. Even with its soft suspension the Ramage could handle compared to other pickups of its day. Being a light hauler you could carry up to 1145 lbs making it a true half ton pickup. Way more hauling than the 750 lbs rated Rabbit Pickup. Collectors are starting to see that many of these odd-ball K-Car and Omni variants are going to be valuable someday. Will they be Hemi Cuda valuable? Not a chance ! What they offer is steady rising values in easy to fix packages, dirt cheap parts and in the case of the Rampage coolness. Our feature 1982 Dodge Rampage is a rust free Utah pickup with only 55,888 miles. Paint and interior in like new condtion. Has a 5 speed trans with power windows and A/C.
