For Sale: 1989 Dodge Dakota in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Few people remember there was an official Shelby pickup from Dodge. But those in the know are going to get excited about this 1989 Dodge Dakota Shelby. After all, it has proper V8 power and the rarity is supercar worthy. And if you're just learning about this truck now, we bet the value price and distinction have already made you a fan.

The white paint has a clean attitude from a later respray. When they redid the finish, they also made sure to get the Shelby stripe package correct.
The reason a smart person takes extra time and care to invest in this truck is because it's quite rare. It was only offered in 1989, and the production is said to be limited to 1500 examples. That number is cut down to about 500 for ones born in white. So it's awesome to find an example that has averaged under 2700 miles annually thus far. So you have a crisp and clean total presentation that also knows how to live up to the sporty Shelby name. You have a blackout front end with integrated fog lights, and that goes well with other dark pieces like the flared fenders and black bumpers. There's even a newer black tonneau over the useful truck bed with Bedrug. So you have a very unique pickup that loves to show off its respected rarity.

The red interior continues the well-respected classic style. The contoured bench seat has the classic pattern in the velour, and the Shelby insets in the seats are a terrific style touch. It's even repeated in the doors. Cold-blowing air conditioning, a nice dash cover, a fold-down center armrest, and sliding rear glass are all about delivering a premium pickup experience. And everything from the wood-rimmed Shelby steering wheel to the individually numbered plaque on the dash makes sure you know that this Dakota is something special.

The Dakota Shelby was a true revolution when it debuted. The V6 was the top-dog powerhouse for these smaller trucks. But Shelby American took a lesson from the Cobra and used V8 power to really move a smaller/lighter machine. They fit Mopar's famous 5.2-liter/318 cubic-inch V8. It looks stock and well-presented. And because this is from a more modern era than many other classic trucks, you get worthwhile features like fuel injection. Plus, there are good supporting pieces everywhere from the Optima red top battery to the Flowmaster muffler. So while this is approaching its 35th birthday, this classic has the strong-running nature you want even in a commuter. Power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a four-speed automatic transmission with highway-friendly overdrive also prove this is built to be an all-around solid cruiser.

The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, warranty card, owner's manual, and even the correct bed lightbar. You're looking at a well-presented and low-mileage V8 pickup blessed by performance car royalty. It's amazing that something this rare and desirable can also be so affordable. Call today!!!
