Worldwide Vintage Autos
- Stock Number:CTP1445
Worldwide Vintage Autos is pleased to present this RARE 1978 Dodge Ramcharger Special Edition. Slated as one of the next appreciating collector trucks, (Vintage Truck and Hagerty Released an article stating that 70's Full Size SUVs will be the next wave of collectible vehicles.), this rare BIG BLOCK Ramcharger has been babied in TX. Low miles and as clean as they come. “The forward looking collector will note that classic trucks are just getting started - and there are plenty of underpublicized specimens out there” Autoweek Magazine February 2016. We scour the country for vintage cars and trucks like this and we rarely come across one like this! You must see and drive this rare Dodge!
The 1974 through 1980 models came without a roof, with a dealer-installed fabric top, or an optional removable steel roof with a flip up rear tailgate window. The early 1974 year model differs from the others in that its door pillars are attached to the removable roof. The "half doors" were used up to the build date of 6-10-74, afterwards the roof was changed to use normal pickup style doors. Marketed as a basic utility vehicle, only the driver's seat was standard equipment with the passenger seat optional up to 1976. Also in 1974 the big block 440 V8 was an option (the only year with the option). Also available was an insulated center console for keeping items cool when filled with ice. SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA

Due to our inventory size, we are unable to drive every vehicle for long distances. We also cannot guarantee that every gauge, light, option, function, etc., will work as it should. We do our best to inspect these vehicles in every detail, and note any imperfections in the advertisement. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE DO NOT GUARANTEE ANY AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS, GAUGES, OR ELECTRICAL SYSTEMS. GIVEN THE NATURE OF THE VINTAGE VEHICLES WE SELL, THESE COMPONENTS CAN BE WORKING AT ONE MOMENT AND NOT WORKING AT ANOTHER MOMENT. IT IS COMMON THAT THESE COMPONENTS WILL NEED UPKEEP OR ATTENTION. IN ADDITION, MANY TIMES THESE VEHICLES SIT FOR LONG PERIODS OF TIME AND ONCE YOU BEGIN TO DRIVE THEM SEALS HARDEN AND GASKETS MAY BEGIN TO LEAK! CLASSIC CARS LEAK. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH THIS BEFORE BUYING A VINTAGE AUTOMOBILE.
We provide approximately 75 HD images, and an HD video, in every one of our listings. Very few companies offer this much detail. We spend significant time inspecting and disclosing detailed items on all of our vehicles; however, at the end of the day, we are not you... we highly suggest that you come and inspect the vehicle.
The information contained in this ad is solely for convenience.

Unless shown in the photographs, we do NOT have documentation, receipts, or photographs of the vehicle listed.
We do not recommend driving a classic car home. Many classic cars are not driven often and tend to sit for long periods of time making them unsuitable for cross-country road trips. We strongly recommend shipping the vehicle.
Unless otherwise noted, we sell our vehicles mileage-exempt, meaning we do not know the actual, original miles. The information listed in the ad is based on the current odometer reading or from rebuild information provided by the builder, and cannot be used as fact.
