A Modern Dodge Rampage

5 months ago Showcase

The Dodge Rampage was introduced in the early ’80s and only had a 3-model-year run meaning they can be hard to come by these days – especially in good condition. The front-wheel-drive pickup was somewhat of an experiment, featuring “Stow ‘n Go” seats borrowed from the minivans of the time and a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine. While less than 40,000 sold overall, it generated a bit of a cult following. One such enthusiast is a Dodge Charger owner in Illinois who turned his muscle car into this modernized Rampage. The transformation was well executed, with smooth curves bridging the truck bed and cab together – almost unnoticeable from the front view. Our favorite feature? Obviously, the 5.7 HEMI® engine under the hood gives the car-style truck more power than the 1984 version would have ever dreamed of. This conversion somehow ended up on a list of “Ugly Car Mods”, but we think it’s a fresh take on a small piece of automotive history. What do you think about this one-of-a-kind tiny truck?
