Description for Dodge Dakota 1989

The Shelby Dakota was a limited-production performance version of the Dodge Dakota Sport pickup truck. Offered by Shelby for 1989 only. it was his first rear wheel drive vehicle in many years. The Shelby Dakota started with a short-wheelbase. short-bed. standard-cab pickup. The 3. 9 L V6 was removed in favor of the company's 5. 2 L V8 with throttle-body injection. On paper. the swap looked simple since both engines were similar. but the tight space in the Dakota's engine compartment meant removing the engine-driven fan in front and using electric ones instead. Removing the belt-driven fan increased the stock 5. 2L V8's output by 5 hp (3. 7 kW) up (to 175 hp) but torque was 270 ft·lbf (370 N·m). Special wheels and trim. as well as individually numbered dash plaques proclaimed the car's heritage. At the time. it was the highest-performing pickup truck in existence. and would set the stage for later factory efforts like the GMC Syclone and Ford Lightning. Total Production: 1475. 480 in white and 995 in redThis one is # 1046 of 1500 built. last year for Shelby dodges. and only one with a v8This truck has been a southern vehicle all it's life. very nice condition inside and out. Newer paint and decals. wheels were professionally redone with new tires and center caps. Interior has no rips or tears. and aside from a some dash cracks. would be perfect. Low miles at 67. 00.
