It's optioned with the Super Track Pack that includes front disc brakes, power brakes, 4.10 Dana 60 rear with Sure Grip differential, max cooling package with 7-blade fan, HEMI suspension and firm-ride shocks. The Rally instrument cluster features an oil-pressure gauge, clock, variable-speed wipers, wood-grain cluster, heater controls lamp, as well as gauges for tachometer, temperature, amp and 150-mph speedometer.
