Plymouth Prowler

Suspension has many machined aluminum parts that in itself, is a sight to behold.

Because the Prowler uses those big P295/40R20’s in the back and P225/45R17’s in the front and a rear track approaching that of a Hummer you can guess the handling to be a bit unusual. Understeer, Oversteer, you’ll get a little bit of everything but Chrysler actually did a good job because the driving experience is better than what you would imagine considering the dimensions of the car. Compared to the replica and kit cars we have built the Prowler is much more refined in just about every aspect.

The fabric convertible top folds easily and is stored in the compartment behind the seats. The top does incorporate a glass rear window with defogger element. Unlike our Audi the Prowler uses a latch at each front corner to clamp the top down to the windshield frame.

One of our testers left a little knuckle skin on one of the latches so he wasn’t overly impressed with the primitive mechanism. Once the top is raised the small side and rear windows further limit the view to the rear. You will need to rely on your mirrors a little more when driving with the top up.

The center console has provisions to hold your cassette tapes but will not accept those CD’s. On each side of the console there are elastic nets that do a good job of holding the CD’s but leave them visible to would-be thieves. There is always the small glove compartment that drops down and hits the passenger in the legs.

The controls are of good quality and typical of Chrysler products of late. They are easy to use except for the re-circulate control which will require snaking your arm around the shift lever to make an adjustment.

Overall we rate the driving experience fair to good and the curb appeal excellent. This car is not for shy folks that want to avoid people and conversation. Hey, maybe we can rent it out to one of those dating services.

This car and a cute puppy should land you a date in a hurry.

If you are thinking about a trip to the local dealer in anticipation of road testing one of these beauties you many be disappointed. Rumor has it the manufacturer would like these cars delivered to the buyers with zero miles. Because the Prowlers have the potential of instant collector car status there may be folks that buy them as investments.

We hope people will drive these cars since they will be missing out on all the fun if they keep the cars in cold storage.
