This Dodge Dakota Convertible truck was sold on eBay recently, and one lucky car tuning enthusiast was fortunate enough to grab this unique automobile. This is 1 of 909 built in 1990, and there were only around 3,000 ever manufactured between 89-90. Yes, the top is completely factory, and this truck is reasonably priced for how rare it is. Many of these convertible trucks were destroyed in the Cash for Clunkers, a program that lets owners trade in their old cars and trucks for a discount when buying a new car or truck from a dealership. Looks like the owner put a little work into tuning the Dakota convertible as well. Listed in the auction are several modifications including Eagle alloy rims, lowering links, alarm system, and a deep sounding performance exhaust.
I bet this truck definitely turns a lot of heads cruising down the road. From the factory the Dodge Dakota Convertible truck comes with a 3.9-liter V6, but many Dakota enthusiasts swap V8 engines into these lightweight trucks. Dodge even had a Shelby version for the non-convertible models back in the day, so it’s too bad this drop top truck didn’t see a factory V8. I’m tempted to buy it since this type of vehicle will only go up in value. Many people don’t even know that these trucks exist. I never heard of a factory convertible truck until I just now stumbled across it online.
