2001 Chrysler Prowler
2001 Chrysler Prowler
The Prowler was produced at the Conner Avenue Assembly Plant in Detroit where they are built alongside the Dodge Viper production line with the body produced in Shadyside, Ohio. Beginning in January 2001, it was branded a Chrysler vehicle. The Prowler has the distinction of being North America's most aluminium-intensive vehicle. The last 300 Prowlers were painted Deep Candy Red. The color features a new paint technology in its pearl coat that will actually make the car sparkle in bright light.
For consignment a “retro rod” similar to an aftermarket hot rod body being built from the ground up with all the trimmings, only this one comes to us directly from a factory, the Chrysler factory. Only 24,267 actual miles are on this unique facet of automobilia from a major manufacturer.
Whilst using predominantly aluminum panels and adhesive to blend them together, this prowler is in excellent condition, with no rust or fillers, all original. Panels were then coated in Midnight Pearl Metallic. With its Indy style front wheels and suspension with added floating fenders that magically turn with the wheels, to its modern yet retro stylings, chopped drop top in black canvas, and curved back trunk, you are in 1932/2001 heaven!, Peabody. This car comes to us complete with front bumpers in black and is sitting on front 17-inch polished alloys and rear 18-inch alloys. Drop the handkerchief doll baby.
Black leather abounds with the buckets sitting proudly and in near showroom condition. These flank a center console which houses a glovebox, cupholder, and autostick (a shift mounted version of the Tiptronic gear shift. ) Keeping in tune with other earlier rods, this has a center elongated blue painted oval which houses the instruments. The remainder of the dash is black sculpted vinyl and plastic. A/C, power windows, power locks, and a stereo are seen on the dash as well. Above the steering column is a tachometer.
A 3.5 Liter V6 powers this light and nimble car, and is fuel injected. This is attached to a 4 speed (4LE) automatic with the above noted Tiptronic auto gear shift actuated gearbox. On the back is a 3.89 rear axle.
As expected, nothing of notability, just normal wear and tear, but it is really at a minimum. 4 wheel power disc brakes are seen, and all else is structurally sound. Independent coil over suspension is on all 4 corners.
My climb in and test drive revealed that there was a little “kick” that I encountered when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear, but the car had excellent pickup, and ran smoothly otherwise. It's definitely a head turner, and not something you see every day, even at Classic Auto Mall where we see quite a lot.
Presenting in all its retro harken back to the hot rod era, all in 2001 trim and technology, we have a low mileage, nice running, very clean Prowler, right out of the factory with no noodling or wrenching required by the new owner. Just get in and put a smile on your face!
