1991 Dodge SpiritThis was my semi-daily driver (bought with 79,000 on the odometer) until smoke started rolling out the tail pipe and left me sit. I diagnosed it as a blown turbo. I parked it in my garage, hen when I moved and did not have the storage,I parked it on my grandfather's farm and it has sat there for the last 6 years. I am moving across the country and can't take it with me!
This was one of the most fun (and fastest) cars I ever drove!
It fired and ran when I drove it from the garage on to the tow dolly and then from the tow dolly to the parking spot.
With some TLC this could be one heck of a fun project!
A tractor is available to help pull it out of the field if necessary.On Mar-08-16 at 17:57:36 PST, eller added the following information:
This is a RARE 1 of 774 red, 991 Dodge Spirit R/T's!
In 1991, odge introduced theSpirit R/T, eaturing a version of the 2.2L engine with a16-valveDOHChead designed byLotus, ho won a design competition against Maserati and Hans Hermann. Fed by aGarrettintercooledturbocharger, heTurbo IIIengine produced 224hp (167kW; 227PS) and 217lb·ft (294N·m). The R/T also featured unique interior and exterior trims. The only transmission was a heavy-duty A568 5-speedmanual transmissionbuilt by Chrysler's New Process Gear division, ith a gearset supplied byGetrag. Heavy-duty vented four wheel disc brakes were standard equipment, ith optionalanti-lock brakes. Color-keyed 15-inch alloy wheels were standard, ith P205/60R15 tires.
At the time, he R/T was advertised as "the fastest sedan made in America", nd one of the quickest performance sedans under $40,000, ith Chrysler placing its performance above theBMW M5. It could reach 60mph (97km/h) in 5.8seconds, ccording toCar and Driver, aking it one of the quickestfront wheel drivecars ever offered in the American market. It was chosen asMotor Trendmagazine's "Domestic Sport Sedan of the Year", eating theFord Taurus SHOfor 1991 and 1992.
All R/Ts were built in Mexico. A total of 1,208 were sold in the U.S. in 1991 — 774 in red and 434 in white. An additional 191 were sold in the U.S. in 1992 — 92 red, 8 white, nd 31 silver. The only discernible changes for 1992 were a lower first gear ratio for reducedturbo lag, oodgrain dashboard trim as used on theChrysler LeBaronsedan, lacked out upper and lower grille inserts, lear rather than amber lenses for the front parking and turn signal lights, nd aspeedometercalibrated to 150mph (240km/h) rather than 120mph (190km/h).
This was my semi-daily driver (bought with 79,000 on the odometer) until smoke started rolling out the tail pipe and left me sit. I diagnosed it as a blown turbo (did not receive confirmation on why it was smoking, hat's just my diagnosis from my knowledge and experience with turbo vehicles). I parked it in my garage with intentions of rebuilding it, hen when I moved and did not have the storage,I parked it on my grandfather's farm and it has sat there for the last 6 years.
I am moving across the country and my hopes of rebuilding this car (one day) are over. I can't take it with me!
This was one of the most fun (and fastest) cars I ever drove! If given some TLC, ou could experience the power that made it one of the most perfect sleepers EVER!
It fired and ran when I drove it from the garage on to the tow dolly and then from the tow dolly to the parking spot. That's the last it ran, have not tried to start it recently. To be safe, would want to drain fuel and oil, hrow in a fresh battery and I simply don't have the time to try all of that, orry!)
The tires are flat, ut atractor is available to help pull it out of the field if necessary.
