For Sale: 1996 Dodge Viper in Volo, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Only 12,130 original miles. This is one of only 721 RT/10s made total in 1996. The Viper is a brute of a performance car. The concept was similar to the Cobra roadster- an open air, no frills, light weight car with an abundance of horsepower. 1996 was the first year of significant revisions, actually 200 in total. The bottom line was a lighter car with more horsepower!

EXTERIOR: 3 color combinations were available. This one is Stone White with color matched wheels. I did not see any flaws on the exterior. Even the front rubber nose looks to be excellent. No cracks or damage on the body. Rear bumper is also excellent. The paint shows real well, I did not find any chips or issues. That doesn't mean I didn't miss something minor. This car has the very desirable 2 top feature. It has the hardtop painted to match. It also includes a folding black cloth convertible top that stores in the trunk. It also has side windows that have sliding glass that attach to the doors. The windshield is crystal clear. Weatherstrips are excellent. The 17 inch wheels have Michelin Pilot Sport tires. The Viper was the first car I remember seeing those high tech headlights on. The way the clamshell hood opens is rather cool too.

INTERIOR: Excellent original condition. All the cars have black interiors. The white cars have blue accent leather wrap emergency brake handle, shift handle and steering wheel. This one has an upgraded stereo unit, factory subwoofers, speakers and tweeters. It also has Viper floor mats. The manuals are in the glovebox. This interior offers the essentials like sport seats that hold you in place, easy to read white face gauges and a leather shifter and steering wheel that the driver gets the pleasure of controling. Air conditioning and a stereo that will make you feel you are at a rock concert are the only luxuries.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Super clean motor compartment, really it looks spotless. Very impressive to see that monster V-10 motor with twin air intakes. It is trimmed out with good looking red accents. The 8.2 litre motor makes 415 hp and 488 lbs of torque. The air conditioning runs on R134 freon.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very clean trunk compartment. The original spare is still mounted. There's a custom car cover and the front plate bracket is included.

UNDERSIDE: New for 1996 was a weight saving aluminum suspension, 25% more rigid frame and a redesigned stainless exhaust that added 15 hp. Under this car is actually really clean. The suspension, bottom of the motor, the rear end are clean. It must have been a fair weather car and stored in a dry climate. It has front and rear independent suspension, big disc brakes at each wheel. The power is transferred through a 6-speed transmission. Rack & pinion power steering is effortless.

Compared to a Corvette the Viper has much, much lower production numbers. Actually they are no longer being made. They are also more of a true muscle car, really a street legal race car! Great performance car with investment potential!
