Description for Dodge Ramcharger 1978

Up for sale is a classic 1978 Ramcharger Convertible 4x4!!!
Yes, this is the highly sought after Ramcharger with removable hard top! This is different from Bronco's and K5's because the whole roof is removable and becomes a convertible suv! Loaded with options and comes equippedwith a very strong 360ci. V8 motor and the bullet proof 727 Torqueflite automatic transmission. A Dana 44 differential in the front and Chrysler 8 1/4" differential in the rear give it the strength to conquer any terrain!!
Unfortunately, I am no longer able to offer this classic suv a home as I will be moving and need to let some of my vehicles go. This was my daily driver for quite some time, after all of the fluids were changed, all new ignition parts, new carburetor, new aluminum intake, brakes, and steering components were replaced.
With options like cruise control, a/c, heater, limited slip differential, bucket seats, and towing pkg! Not too many Ramchargers out there left, and especially being daily drivers.No worries on either daily street use or highway, this big RC drives great. All lights and gauges work. Heater blows hot and a/c will only need a compressor to be blowing cold again!
Starts right up with just a bump of the key, and warms up really fast. With only 187,518 miles, it's no wonder why the motor and transmission are so strong and operate smoothly! No leaks, no smoking, no hesitation or any other issues out of either motor transmission. Gets up to highway speed in a hurry and still gets very decent mileage for being a big V8 engine and a full size 4x4.
Does have the full time transfer case, though have not taken it offroad, it performs very well on snowy/ muddy roads. Underneath, every thing has been undercoated with heavy duty rubberized coating, for the ultimate rust protection and sound deadening.Both front and rear driveshafts have been replaced, as well as the ujoints. All body mount bushings are in excellent shape. Has an added steel bar across the 35 gallon gas tank to prevent any damage to it.
No rust whatsoever!! The floor pans are solid, the frame is solid, and all other sheet metal is solid. The exterior has been rhino lined to give it protection and just great all around beastly looks! The interior is in really good shape being that it is a 39 year old vehicle! I haven't taken the top off, but all of the seals are intact and is surprisingly quite, with little road noise.
Here is a list of all new parts that aren't even a year old:
33" Dayton Timberline M/T'sHolley 0-80783C 650CFM carburetorProfessional Products Crosswind Aluminum intakeCarter performance fuel pumpTaylor Streethunder sparkplug wiresTaylor performance distributor cap and rotorAccel Super Stock coilChampion Platinum sparkplugs
Although this truly is in my opinion in great overall shape for it's age, there are some things as with all classic vehicles that haven't been completely restored to flawless condition. The exterior does have some dents, front grille is dented, right hand side marker light is cracked, driver's side mirror is cracked, the hood release cable was cut but be operated through the front grille, and has some previous body work. The interior does have wear and tear that would be expected from these Ramchargers,the roof has several holes that look like for a roof rack,also looks like at one point it had a roll bar and both wheel wells were cut to remove it. Everything for the a/c is present expect for the compressor itself. The cruise control will need a new servo. The bucket seats have rips which is why they have covers on them. The dash pad on the passenger's side is cracked.
This is a get in and drive away classic fullsize suv, back when they used to make them strong and dependable! I have tons of more pictures and I can also take pictures of specific areas. If you have any questions, please ask beforehand. No reserve!! Super low starting price! Clean and clear title in hand! Don't miss out!!
