In the early '90s, Chrysler engineers and stylists were given encouragement to design a retro-style hot rod, and Design Director Tom Gale took that ball and ran with it. Tom was an owner of a vintage '32 Ford hot rod himself and approved the leading-edge design for introduction as a prototype in 1993. The Prowlers were famous for utilizing aluminum components, and were hand assembled at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant. The Prowler's design was a striking mix of classic hot rod aesthetics and futuristic elements. Its iconic retro-futuristic style featured sleek, elongated lines, exposed front tires, and a distinct grille paying homage to vintage hot rods. Its perimeter frame is extruded 6061 aluminum tubing bent into shape around mandrels. The main body tub is sheet aluminum held together with self-piercing rivets and industrial adhesives. Suspension control arms were made using a hybrid die-casting/forging operation known as semi-solid metal (SSM) forming, and even the rear brake rotors were aluminum.

This lovely Prowler was upgraded, like all 1999 models, right from the factory with an aluminum block 253-horsepower V-6 engine coupled to a four-speed auto stick transmission, uniquely located at the rear of the vehicle. The two-seat roadster features a torque tube joining the transmission to the engine, in a similar manner to the Corvette and the Porsche 944. It helps the car achieve a near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution for superior handling. It will push 126-mph top speed and make as many under six second 0-60 runs as you wish.

This Prowler is equipped with many features that would allow it to be your comfortable daily driver, such as keyless entry, power windows and power locks, dual airbags, and air-conditioning. The interior is very roomy, spotlessly clean, with comfortable and supportive seats, leather-trimmed steering wheel, and an AM/FM cassette high-fidelity sound system.

This fine example has just 8,533 original miles, as certified by its clean CARFAX® report, and the condition supports such low mileage. It's simply like buying a brand-new Prowler, with a beautiful paint finish, no marks or dings, and a completely factory look. The paint finish is spotless. The interior - virtually not a mark on it. Pop the bonnet and it looks just like new. From top to bottom, this car has obviously been lightly used and pampered since new. The shine is impeccable, it is mechanically sound, and represents a very unique opportunity for one lucky buyer. A quick test drive confirms the Prowler's balance and power. The car starts right up, idles smoothly, sounds fantastic, and is really quick, yet very easy to drive. The handling is wonderfully balanced; you can easily enjoy either open or covered motoring, and it features all the modern amenities you could ever want.

This Prowler includes all factory receipts, manuals, and the CARFAX® report, which proves prior ownership, service records, and a 100% clean accident history. This is a chance to buy one of the best - an ultra-low mileage example in incredible condition throughout. It is a Plymouth that will simply never lose its dramatic appeal or its important place in American automotive history.
