2000 Prowler- Triple Black- 35,224 Miles- Fun and Ready!
Our seller purchased this prowler just two years ago and has
enjoyed owning it, because he doesn't have room for EVERYthing he
wants- this Prowler will be going to a new home. Overall, it is a
"driver" and you'll have a great time at the cruise events and
"casual" shows. It has a clean CarFax with no paint or accident
history known. Mechanically, it is turn-key ready to take home with
you. Try to stop in and see it in person.
General Prowler Info From Wikipedia:
The Plymouth Prowler, later the Chrysler Prowler, is a retro-styled
production car manufactured and marketed from 1997 to 2002 by
DaimlerChrysler, based on the 1993 concept car of the same
The Prowler was offered in a single generation in a front-engine,
rear-drive, rear-transmission configuration - with an overall
production of 11,702.
Chrysler engineers were given free rein to design whatever they
wanted in a "hot rod" or "sportster" type vehicle. Chrysler's
design and international director Thomas C. Gale said his "love for
1930s-era hot rods inspired Chrysler's latest design triumph, the
retro-styled Plymouth Prowler."1 #fn1 Gale, who has a hotted-up
1932 Ford in his garage approved the hotrod-inspired Plymouth
Prowler as the company's follow-up show-stopper to the Dodge
Viper.2 #fn2 An early influence is credited to a Chrysler-sponsored
project at the Art Center College of Design that resulted in a
thesis by Douglas "Chip" Foose that included drawings of a
retro-roadster.3 #fn3 Foose "designed it as a coupe for Chrysler to
begin with but modified it to a roadster version."4 #fn4
One of the most striking design features of the Prowler are the
open, Indy racer-style front wheels. The Prowler featured a
powertrain from Chrysler's LH-cars, a 24-valve, 3.5 L Chrysler SOHC
V6 engine producing 214 hp (160 kW; 217 PS) at 5850 rpm. For the
1999 model year, the engine was replaced with a more powerful,
aluminum-block, 253 hp (189 kW; 257 PS) at 6400 rpm version of the
engine. Both engines were coupled to a four-speed Autostick
semi-automatic transmission. The transmission was located at the
rear of the vehicle and joined to the engine by a torque tube that
rotated at engine speed, an arrangement similar to that used by the
C5 Corvette, Porsche 944, and Alfa Romeo 75, and helped to
facilitate a desirable 50-50 front-rear weight distribution. The
Prowler was the first rear-wheel-drive Plymouth since the 1989
Plymouth Gran Fury and would stand as the last Plymouth model with
that layout. While criticized for having only a V6 engine,
Chrysler's High Output 3.5 had a horsepower rating similar to (or
higher than) the company's Magnum V8s of that era. While not making
nearly as much torque as a V8, Prowler's light weight helped to
achieve rapid off-the-line acceleration.
The car prominently featured aluminum construction, in many cases
adhesively bonded, chiefly in the chassis. The body was produced in
Shadyside, Ohio, and the car was assembled by hand at the Conner
Avenue Assembly Plant (CAAP) in Detroit, Michigan.
