From the ivory paint, to the interior - this 1988 Dodge Dakota is terrific time warp of a classic pickup. So whether you had a truck like this or your family had one, you're looking at an affordable way to capture some memories...and make some new ones, too. And yes, the ultra-low odometer is believed to be this truck's actual mileage!

This one grabs attention because everyone wants to know how a truck like this can still look so good. For starters, there would be more mileage on this one if we just went from our showroom to the beach once a year! So it's a true time capsule that has been preserved with a terrific shine and a factory level panel fit. And the Light Ivory paint is even believed to be the original application. It has that ideal yellow-beige tone that represents the 1980s correctly, and there are just the right hints of age so that people really understand the originality. The bed looks like it has never seen a big load; the chrome front bumper is mirror-like; and it's complete, right down to the factory wheel covers. So while this one could certainly get to work, we bet you're thinking more about how to turn your garage into a 1980s Dodge showroom to showcase this special survivor.

Inside is more of that time machine feeling. And it's easy to see with it all dressed in a bright tan/yellow. The bench seat has the classic comfy cloth pattern, and there isn't even a coffee stain because this one wasn't part of the morning commute. The dash is a true marvel considering you'll likely never find one again that's so smooth, clean, and saved from decades of sun beaming through the windshield. The steering wheel, heater controls, gauges, and AM/FM stereo all retain that day-one look and feel. And you still have all the great old-school pickup features - from the durable rubber flooring to the sliding rear window.

Under the hood is more of the great time capsule presentation. The 2.2-liter motor is believed to be original to the truck. It certainly looks the part, right down to the factory decals that are still clear and easy to read. This isn't a speed demon of a powerplant, but it's also no slouch. You take full control of it all with the five-speed manual transmission. And because this has been properly maintained, it rides smooth and feels like a brand-new truck. So while the odometer is amazingly low, we bet you won't be able to resist adding to it. Especially because you have easy driving features like power steering and power brakes with discs up front.

Complete with owner's manual, this is rolling nostalgia offered for an affordable price. So do you want to look through your photo albums or drive them? Call today!!!
