We like this 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 because it has fuel-injected V8 power, a loaded A/C interior, and plenty of versatility. It makes for a value-priced pickup with plenty of broad appeal.
There's something always attractive about a single-cab short-bed pickup. It goes well with the rugged style and 15-inch alloys to give this one instant appeal. This truck has added substance, but it also adds to the style. This includes the side steps, polished bed rails, and the full bed liner. There's even a full trailer hitch to tow the toys. Another thing to consider about this truck is its vintage status. This was part of the early years of the new design Ram that changed the whole rule book for truck styling. So we're just now starting to dive into their collectability, and in fact, this one will even qualify for vintage plates in some states now that it's 25 years old. The condition of this one suggests it wants to go out for work and fun rather than shows, but the value price also means there's going to be room in your budget for plans.
Just like the exterior, the interior shows off the added usefulness of a modern classic. It starts with the classic three-across seating, but this offers a fold-down center console and individual bucket-like comfort. Cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, tinted glass, a sliding rear window, a tilt steering column, a driver's airbag, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with an aux input for your phone or iPod. It makes for the kind of truck that continues to have a level of comfort for everyday use.
Under the hood is the 5.2-liter Magnum V8. We love this engine because it traces its roots back to the respected Mopar powerhouses, like the 318 cubic-inch engine, but this is updated for the modern era with fuel injection. So you have a desirable setup that's hardy and easy to tune up. Another great update to the Dodge Ram line was an upgrade to a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. So this modern classic can also be a proper highway cruiser. That's why you also have power steering, power brakes, and front discs.
Value, versatility, and an emerging classic status make this Ram irresistible. Don't miss this deal. Call now!
