1999 Plymouth Prowler
Terms such as: perfect, flawless, concours, museum quality, etc., are definitely overused when it comes to selling classic cars & trucks, but in the case of the vehicle you are looking at now, I can safely say that all of these terms certainly apply!
‘Red Hills Rods & Classics’ is very happy to offer you this absolutely perfect 1999 Plymouth Prowler finished in Prowler Purple Metallic (is there any other color for a Prowler) w/ only 255 original miles since purchased new @ Skyland Jeep-Eagle in Asheville, North Carolina. For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past 20 years, the Plymouth Prowler is a retro-styled production car manufactured & marketed by DaimlerChrysler from 1997 to 2002. Chrysler engineers were given free rein to design whatever they wanted in a ‘Hot Rod’ type vehicle, and Thomas C. Gale’s (Chrysler's Design Director) love for ‘30s-era Hot Rods inspired the Prowler’s retro-styled design. Mr. Gale, who had a 1932 Ford Hot Rod in his garage, approved the rod-inspired Plymouth Prowler as the company's follow-up show-stopper to the Dodge Viper. An early influence is credited to a Chrysler-sponsored project at the Art Center College of Design that resulted in a thesis by Douglas ‘Chip’ Foose, that included drawings of a retro-roadster. Foose originally designed it as a coupe but then modified it to a roadster version. Well as the saying goes, the rest is history. This amazing 1999 Plymouth Prowler has been in collector hands since the day it was sold new, and is in 100% flawless condition in every way! There are absolutely NO blemishes on the car from front to back and from top to bottom. There is not a single scratch, chip or any type of distraction anywhere on the car, period. Even under the front nose where you usually find scrapes, etc. is absolutely flawless. The original Prowler Purple Metallic paint is simply perfect w/ a deep lustrous shine that appears to be a mile deep, and the grey bumpers on front & back are flawless as well. The original black cloth convertible top looks like the day it left the factory, showing absolutely no signs of wear whatsoever. The only way to really describe this car is ‘factory new’ throughout! Even the undercarriage is spotless and looks like it just rolled off of the assembly line (see photos).
Open the driver’s door and you will find the original Agate interior that is just as perfect as the rest of the car. Again, absolutely NO blemishes are to be found anywhere inside the car. All of the electrical components such as original gauges, lights, blinkers, AC, sound system, etc., are in perfect working condition throughout. You might say that this is to be expected on a 255 original-mile car, but not necessarily. If a vehicle is not stored correctly & cared for properly, even low-mile examples can show signs of wear & deterioration. This particular car has been meticulously maintained & cared for since day one to keep it in ‘factory new’ condition. Open the hood and it’s only more of the same: ‘simply perfect’ throughout. She fires up instantly and runs flawlessly like a 255 original-mile car should.
This beautiful Purple Prowler is heavily documented w/ all of the factory original paperwork that the original owner received on day one, including: original window sticker, original owner’s manual, original warranty booklet, original Plymouth Prowler CD, original 24-hour roadside assistance booklet, original factory registration papers, original Goodyear tire manual & warranty booklet, original consumer arbitration papers, original Owner’s Rights booklet, original hang tags, original dealership checklist, original 1999 Prowler dealership brochure, (2) original key fobs, w/ original dealership leather key chains & original stock tags, original front license plate bracket (still in wrapper), etc. Also included is a 1/18 scale American Muscle 1999 Plymouth Prowler die-cast car, and a 1/64 scale Matchbox Plymouth Prowler die-cast car.
The current market shows that these unique factory Hot Rods are moving up quickly, especially perfectly preserved examples such as this. This car is not for the buyer who is looking for just any ol' Prowler, but rather for the collector who wants the finest Plymouth Prowler in the country. You could search for the rest of your life and never find a more ‘flawless’ 1999 Plymouth Prowler anywhere @ any price, period. If you are looking for a Prowler but only the best of the best will do, you have found your car!
