Classic Car Overview

The idea of this 1999 Plymouth Prowler started back in May of 1990 with the words hot rod-style retro car written on a note card. That led to a one-fifth-scale model and a sketch of a concept, which caught the eye of the Chrysler president Bob Lutz. Lutz ordered the building of a fully functional prototype, which was the car that got shown in Detroit. The reaction from the public was overwhelming! By September 1994, the green light was given to building the Prowler in limited numbers, with the goal of reviving the Plymouth brand as the Viper had done for Dodge. Corporate parts bins were raided for some of the Prowler s components, including the 3.5L SOHC V6 and 4-speed AutoStick automatic transaxle from the Chrysler LHS and 300M. But utilizing the drivetrain from a front-wheel-drive vehicle in the rear-drive Prowler required great innovation, with the transaxle being modified and mounted in the rear, as with the C5 and C6 Corvettes.The Prowler foundation is an aluminum frame fabricated from the latest alloys. The body is also made of aluminum and sheet-formed plastic, joined together with a new compression fastening process. Suspension components are also aluminum, using a new forging process, and the front suspension was based on a Formula 1-like pushrod design that hid the coil-over shocks inside the body. All off the efforts put into new materials and manufacturing truly keep the weight down making this car very fun to try. The 214-hp V6 propels the 2,800-pound Prowler very nicely. (Motor Trend saw 0 60 in 7.1 seconds on a pre-production car). As Chrysler Chairman Bob Eaton said in telling the world that Chrysler would build the Prowler, It s for real, and either you get it or you don t. This Prowler with a black exterior is 1 of only 779 that were produced in 1999. Along with claiming the title of the world s only factory-built hot rod, the Prowler may be the only production automobile offered with a matching trailer. Prowlers have only the smallest of trunk space, especially with the top removed, and the $5,000 option offered much-needed room for longer trips again following hot-rod tradition. When you combine the trailer with the optional factory hard top it makes this even more of a rare find from our friends at Plymouth.
