For Sale: 1992 Dodge Daytona in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Here's one of the most interesting and affordable collectibles you can get your hands on right now. This 1992 Dodge Daytona IROC R/T brings together legendary names like Lotus into the mix for a fun low-batch coupe. And this example is coming off of long-term ownership, and it proves that a few of the right people were paying attention when these special Mopars were made.

The power cars from Mopar seem to only be done by the handful, and this one is no exception. It's believed that there were only about 250 IROC R/T Daytonas made in 1992, and of those only 60 are believed to be in black. What makes the R/Ts so special is that there's a turbo powerhouse with some awesome pedigree. And while we'll get to more on that in a moment, take some time to appreciate the car's style. This example has spent about two-thirds of its life thus far with the same owner. He drove it and enjoyed it (the odometer is believed to represent the full mileage,) but it was done with care and respect. And that's likely your plan for this one, too. So you'll find dings from the car next to it in the garage and maybe want to do a headlight restoration, but the overall package is quite impressive. The black paint has the sleek look of a quality later respray. It helps highlight awesome details, like the factory IROC body kit, well-integrated rear spoiler, and the revised aerodynamic styling that was only available for the last couple of years. And those distinct 16-inch alloys are going to be a big hit at Radwood.

The dark gray/black interior is highly stock and quite comfortable. It's quite clean and complete with body-hugging front bucket seats finished in a comfy velour. The idea behind this is to be a unique car you want to drive, and so just like the exterior, you'll find some use... but not abuse. This is a range-topping model, and so it comes with terrific factory features like power windows, power locks, cruise control, and an overhead console. There are some nice additions you want in a classic made for driving like ceramic window tint and an AM/FM/CD stereo with aux input. There are even new A/C components that come with the sale so you can get it consistently ice-cold. But the best part of this Daytona R/T is how it engages your enthusiast side. You have a leather-wrapped airbag seeing wheel on a tilt column, a shifter that's contoured for your right hand, and a full gauge package with handy tach and fun boost readout.

The exterior and interior have a dark kind of style, and so when you lift the hood, all the red on the motor really radiates. And this one is worth the extra attention. It's the special Turbo III powerhouse that utilized the hardy 2.2-liter Chrysler motor with a redesigned DOHC 16-valve head from the power masters at Lotus. And when you add a turbocharger to this, there is a terrific experience of low-end acceleration that plays nicely into the turbo boost. So this car is QUICK when you want some serious hustle, and the five-speed manual transmission gives you the control to be in the center of the action. And because this is a long-term cherished car, it has been treated correctly. We're even told large items have been addressed within the last few years, including the timing belt, head gasket, and clutch. That's why this one feels as confident as a daily driver. Add in power steering, a sport-tuned suspension, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and you can start to understand why this is a cool classic that's also an easy anytime choice.

Complete with the owner's manual, this is rarity, quickness, and affordability in a sleekly dark package. But for the same reasons why it's attractive to you also makes it irresistible to others, too. So you should hurry if you want to take this one home. Call today!!!
