For Sale: 1994 Dodge Viper in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

10,061 original miles. Custom 19-inch forged wheels and Michelin tires, upgraded exhaust. New NOS dashboard and center console. Beautifully maintained, as new throughout. Incredible early Viper that's as brutal and elemental as you remember.With the recent demise of the Viper, it's unlikely that we'll ever see anything like it again. Ostensibly inspired by the Cobra, it was performance distilled down to its purest form. No frills, no luxury, just a big honkin' engine and enough bodywork for two passengers. Outrageously styled yet bulletproof reliable, it quickly became the benchmark by which almost everything else was measured. And dressed in black, this one is pure menace, an apex predator that eliminates even the stripes that were found on so many of its siblings. With just 10,000 original miles, it's pretty much as-new throughout, with paint that's surprisingly good considering Chrysler's mediocre quality of the period. The bodywork is thermoplastic, so there's no worries about rust or parking lot dings, and panel fit is quite good-even that giant clamshell hood snugs down tightly. The only notable deviation from stock is that the inserts on the rocker panels have been painted gloss black to match the bodywork (it was originally satin black). But beyond that, what else can you do to a Viper to improve its looks? This thing is spectacular from any angle!The interior is wrapped in gray leather, which was the only choice in 1994. Somewhat more luxurious than its spiritual ancestor but no less elemental, there are supportive bucket seats, a leather-wrapped wheel, and a full array of white-faced gauges. On the other hand, there are no windows and no roof, just a portable tonneau for inclement weather. A/C was included and it works just fine, and there's also a decent AM/FM/cassette stereo, but who's going to use it in a car with side pipes? Early Vipers were notorious for cracking dashboards and consoles, and this one was no exception-so they somehow found an NOS dash and console which look like new (obviously). There's also a bit of a trunk carrying a space-saver spare that's strapped down better than the passengers inside and has never been used.There is no truth to the rumor that the V10 in the Viper is related to the V10 truck motor also found in Dodge Rams. The Viper's all-aluminum V10 was engineered by Lamborghini and grunted out 400 horsepower and a towering 462 lb-ft. of torque-staggering numbers for 1994 and rivaled only by the mighty ZR-1 Corvette. In practice, the Viper's brutal torque hits like a sledgehammer and turns those massive rear tires to expensive smoke without much effort. The red intake manifold is a work of art, fed by twin throttle bodies and offering instantaneous throttle response that you have to experience to understand. Despite the massive number of modifications available in the aftermarket, this one is 100% stock aside from a custom exhaust system that gives it a more appropriate soundtrack (the stock Vipers were accused of sounding like delivery trucks). It spins a bulletproof 6-speed manual gearbox that rips through the gears while ignoring the torque, and with a 3.07 gearset out back, this thing feels like it could accelerate forever. The chassis is fabricated like a race car, complete with tubular A-arms and coil-over shocks, and there's a giant disc brake at each corner. It's nicely maintained and extremely clean, and with just enough miles on the clock to keep it healthy. Built at a cost of nearly $10,000, those custom 3-piece forged alloy wheels measure 19x10 up front and 19x13 in back and carry 295/30/19 and 345/30/19 Michelin Pilot Sport radials, respectively (the original wheels and tires are also available, please contact us for details).Documentation includes the original owner's manual.Nobody will ever build a car like the Viper again, and now that it's out of production we're seeing some significant gains in the market as buyers seek the unfiltered driving experience. Nothing feels like a Viper accelerating through the gears and without any electronic aids it remains a driver's car that requires skill to master. With low mileage, expert maintenance, and those gorgeous wheels, this is a special Viper that's ready to enjoy right away.
