It's a shame, considering these two-doors are handsome brutes with a similar brawny, let-your-chest-hair-flow vibe that makes the Bronco and K5 Blazer so popular. The... SUV gave outdoorsy Mopar fans exactly what they sought: rugged individuality. The Ramcharger was ostensibly a base-model Dodge pickup that had nine inches chopped from the wheelbase and with the bulkhead and roof lopped off the cab. The truck came standard without a roof, but the vast majority were fitted with a heavy, drop-on, optional steel top with a flip-up fiberglass rear window; a vinyl soft top was also offered. The bed area of the interior could be covered in rubber or carpet. Offered here is a 1978 Dodge Ramcharger in two-tone blue over black. The SUV's odometer reads 96,338. This Ramcharger was a well-maintained example and has been professionally repainted to a high standard. The Ramcharger's exterior has been resprayed in gloss light blue over dark matte blue. The light blue paint, primarily on the upper surfaces, shows an even finish and very good luster overall. The lower body wears the dark-blue matte finish with a thin complementary stripe adding distinctiveness. Two recessed portions of the hood are also painted matte dark blue. The roof is also dark blue and shows small dents on the leading edge and light patina elsewhere. There are no dings, dents, or other damage to any sheet metal panels. The matte-silver-painted bumpers and front grille are in excellent condition. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) Entry-assist chrome grab-handles have been installed rearward of the doors; exterior chrome mirrors are pitted. Factory badging-including D-O-D-G-E recessed lettering at the top of the grille, RamCharger emblems on the front fenders, and the ram-figure hood ornament-is correctly in place. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and undamaged. Silver-painted 15-inch steel wheels with chrome baby moon hubcaps and trim rings are mounted with Goodyear® Wrangler 31x10.50 LT outline-white-letter tires. The truck has been lifted slightly. The SUV's interior retains a virtually stock look throughout with most surfaces displaying some patina from age and use. Dark-blue fabric seat upholstery is vertically pleated and trimmed in blue vinyl; it exhibits light wear. Newer dark-blue carpeting covers the cabin floor and continues into the cargo area. The roof is painted light blue and is without a roof light. Door trim has been refinished but shows wear. The stock 2-spoke steering wheel frames the original (refinished) dashboard and stock analog gauge package. The Hurst® shift lever for the 4-speed manual transmission is mounted on the floor next to the transfer-case 4WD selector lever.
