Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas is proud to showcase this 2000 Plymouth Prowler. The Plymouth Prowler is one of those cars I'm glad an automaker had the guts to build. Radically different from everything else on the road, then and now, it was hot-rodding elevated to an OEM level and filled with technology. Today, they remain a known quantity and the market is starting to respond to the last of the Plymouths, as cars like this 2000 Prowler are seeing slow but steady increases in value. The pointy nose, the open front wheels, the chopped windshield and the low slung soft top make it instantly recognizable as the Prowler. Yet, the overall look recalls the 1932 Ford roadster. How cool is that?! In 1999 the Prowler got a brand-new aluminum block 3.5-liter V6 engine under the hood that creates performance more fitting a hot rod. At 253 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque this 2000 Plymouth Prowler does 0-60 mph in 5.7 seconds and Quarter mile times like 14.2 seconds. There is little argument that this car was a collectible the minute it rolled off the factory floor. Basic black is one of the better choices on the swoopy 2-seat roadster, stealthy and perfect for the period hot rods it was designed to emulate. Showing 19205 original miles, this nicely maintained Prowler is just right for driving, rather than preserving forever as a low-mile collector's piece, although it is a low miles car. As a study in aluminum construction techniques, the Prowler's lightweight body is a mixture of aluminum and composite materials, but the shape is part early hi-boy roadster and part 21st century sleek. The doors open and close easily, the pointed hood fits right, and you'll never get tired of watching the front tires do their thing as you drive. Things like the Xenon looking headlights, flush-mounted taillights, and high-mounted taillight all give the Prowler modern car functionality, although with a retro style look. The black leather interior might just be the most highly functional hot rod interior ever designed. Supportive seats with Prowler logos embroidered in their backs, center-mounted instruments in a body-colored gauge panel, and dual airbags mean this is no home-built machine. As an OEM build, things like the A/C and stereo are not just adequate, but remarkably powerful, and you also get cruise control, power windows and locks, and a bunch of other convenience items that standard rods can only dream about. There are a few stretch marks on the driver's seat, but otherwise everything remains in as-new condition. The snug-fitting black canvas top folds effortlessly and disappears completely beneath a hard shell, and includes a heated rear window. Also in the tradition of great rods, there's not much of a trunk, but you probably won't even notice or care. Performance is impressive thanks to a 3.5 liter V6 making 253 horsepower, or about three times the power of a 1934 Ford flathead V8. It's linked to a 4-speed automatic transaxle mounted integral with the rear axle, so handling is impressive, not clumsy like most rods. The engine is unmodified and completely original, with all the factory markings intact. The suspension is fully independent so it rides quite well for a sporty roadster, and massive disc brakes with ABS provide serious stopping power. Contributing to the Prowler's outrageous look are the optional chrome wheels, measuring 17x7.5 up front and a massive 20x10 out back and wearing 225/40/17 and 295/40/20 Goodyears. So don't hesitate to come check it out for yourself , and if you've been looking for something like this its the perfect time to snatch it before somebody else does.
