1989 Dodge Ramcharger 100


A rig with a name as cool as its hood ornament, this is a stunning 1989 Dodge Ramcharger 100 and it’s for sale from MotoeXotica for $36,900. A true survivor with only 4,377 miles of experience, this is a "Ram Tough" Dodge you can drive pretty much anywhere you want.  We suggest starting with straight from Fenton, Missouri where it currently lives, right into your driveway. 

This listing is on the high end of many of the listings documented on CLASSIC.COM, just under a 1987 Ramcharger sold on Bring a Trailer in August of 2021 and a 1992 Ramcharger that sold at auction for $40,150 in Glendale, Arizona in 2019.

Nevertheless, given the state of the market and the condition of this big boy, we think this deal checks out. 

The Model.

The Dodge Ramcharger was launched in 1974 as a large SUV built on the same platform as the Dodge D Series/Ram pickups. It was Chrysler’s entrance into the large two-door SUV game alongside its brother, the Plymouth Trail Duster, although that model was discontinued in 1981. These two models were marketed as bulletproof and aimed at stealing a slice of sales from the wildly popular Ford Bronco and Chevy Blazer that had more than a half decade head start on the market.

This example is a 2nd generation Ramcharger, one of 18,973 examples produced in 1989. It boasts a massive 34 gallon fuel tank, a honkin’ 106 inch wheelbase, a 6,000 lb gross vehicle weight rating, and even has clearcoat paint, something Dodge didn’t bestow on the model until 1987.

It has a 5.2 liter V-8 with two throttle bodies with two fuel injectors each, making a modest 175 horsepower but a stout 245 lb.-ft. of torque. With a highly capable 4 wheel drive system including a Center Axle Disconnect Dana 44 that is vacuum actuated by a switch on the transfer case and powered by engine vacuum, this thing can go offroad. Promise.

The Ramcharger was discontinued at the end of the 1993 model year in North America. In Mexico, Dodge continued to run that platform until 1996, and then again in 1999-2001 as a two-door Dodge Ramcharger with a '94-'01 Ram front end. Approximately 30,000 of this limited run were produced and, sadly, they were all two-wheel drive. Womp.

The Specs.

This survivor is in excellent shape, likely thanks to its extremely low mileage, having only been wheeled 4,377 miles. It’s much like it came from the factory, too, with the main exception being the KC fog lights and the 4” suspension lift that just looks amazing and gives it even more ability on difficult terrain. It even has a bit of a reverse rake increasing its approach and departure angle.

It’s in good running order mechanically and the truck's paint and trim are in very good (original) condition. It’s beautiful. The cherry on top is that this Warren, Michigan-born RamCharger spent its life in Alabama and Tennessee, which has helped it stay relatively rust free.
