For Sale: 2000 Plymouth Prowler in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

16,628 original miles. 100% original, including Goodyear run-flat tires. One of only 799 Prowler Black cars built. Optional chrome wheels, runs and drives like new, everything works. Own a hot rod without the hot rod hassles!Purple was the original Prowler color, but it wasn't until 1999 that black was added to the color pallet, giving it a traditional hot rod look. Black always looks right, subtle on the dramatic bodywork but it refuses to blend in. Chrysler knew these cars would get a lot of scrutiny, and their hand-built nature pretty much guaranteed that each one would be given some extra attention before it went out the door. As a result, finish quality is far superior to assembly line Mopar stuff, with excellent gaps, doors that close with a reassuring THUNK, and a deep gloss to the paint that surely isn't your regular production fare. With so few miles, this Prowler looks almost new in every way and has been kept in climate-controlled storage for its entire life. That means no bashed-up chin, no stone chips on its flanks, and clean aluminum suspension components out front. There's not much shiny trim, but details like the faired-in headlights, taillights, and side-mounted marker lights are all in excellent condition.Deeply bolstered leather buckets in a color Plymouth called Agate look comfortable enough for a cross-country drive-and they are! Aside from a few minor wrinkles, they're unmarked and look like new, as do the carpets, door panels, and center console, all of which are factory equipment. You can see hot rod influences in the column-mounted tachometer and center instrument panel that's color-matched to the bodywork, and the rest is OEM-grade luxury. The list of features includes ice cold A/C, power windows and locks, cruise control, a tilt steering wheel, airbags, and a great-sounding stereo that's powerful enough for top-down cruising. It all works properly thanks to factory engineers doing their job, and it makes this a no-excuses car that works in the real world. Heck, there's even a heated rear window in the black canvas convertible top! Speaking of the convertible top, it folds quickly and easily into the rear deck where it vanishes, giving the car a sleek look like the best roadsters of the past.Mechanically, the Prowler provides plenty of excitement, don't let the guys talk down to it. Chrysler's 3.5-liter 24-valve V6 with 253 horsepower is plenty stout for the lightweight roadster and it fits neatly in the pointed nose. It's reliable, too, so when you turn the key factory fuel injection ensures that it starts instantly and idles perfectly no matter what. It's obviously spotless under the hood, and all the factory equipment is 100% intact with no modifications. Up front, you can see the very trick inboard suspension, which uses pushrods and bell cranks to actuate the coil-over shocks, just like Indycars and Formula 1 racers. Impressive! Underneath, there's a fabricated chassis made of box-section aluminum that's incredibly rigid and light. The floors are riveted and bonded in place, again like a race car, and both the front and rear suspension cradles are aluminum. Custom aluminum castings for all four sets of A-arms further reduces unsprung weight for surprisingly good handling and for near-ideal weight distribution, the 4-speed automatic transmission is mounted in back. There's even a custom transmission cooler with its own fan mounted just behind the rear license plate. The stainless exhaust system gives it a bit of a snarky bark when you fire it but never gets annoying on the road and ride quality is decent for something so low-slung and grippy. Tires are correct Goodyear run-flats measuring 225/45/17 in front and a massive 295/40/20 in back for a proper hot rod rake.Why own a garden-variety Corvette when the Prowler offers so much more personality without any reduction in comfort? Why own a hot rod that rattles and bangs down the road when this tight, smooth, competent modern equivalent is sitting right here, ready to rock? No compromises, an awesome look, and beautifully preserved? What's not to love?
