I believe you could have bought an optional mini-trailer to tow behind the car, to make up for the lack of trunk space in the actual Prowler. –LeoTheLion 1 July 2005 17:35 (UTC)

Trivia [ edit ]

The Plymouth Prowler logo, a stalking ‘big cat’ (i.e. mountain lion-size), was the same as Grumman’s logo for the Prowler aircraft.

Price [ edit ]

What does one of these bad boys go for?

Price [ edit ]

In 1998, a Prowler prototype was buried in a time capsule in Tulsa, Oklahoma to be unearthed in 2048, whereupon it will be returned to DaimlerChrysler. What does that mean? Where is the citation?

Is that a joke or some weird corporate plan?

Prowler. [ edit ]

The time capsule thing is true. If I get a chance, I will try to find an article containing it. As far as price goes, these things were pretty rare, espacially in the most recent years (they had a lot of rare editions/packages).

They retailed new for $40k+ U.S in their earlier years, but the price went up in their later years. In Canada, some of the rare editions brought around the $70K+ mark. They are a nice touring cruiser. Not made for blistering speed (..they weren’t slow though..), but more for cruising the streets.

They also were nice also on long, winding country highways. they loved the twisties, handled great, ate up the curves. This is a nice article over all 04:39, 9 May 2007 (UTC)jon the dodgeboy

Top Marques magazine (UK) had one for £27 000 (3.5litre convertable).(86.152.184.218 (talk ) 16:06, 5 June 2008 (UTC))

Time Capsule Citation [ edit ]

Question When will the time capsule car that was buried for Tulsa’s Centennial be dug up?

Answer In celebration of Tulsa’s Centennial (Tulsa was incorporated on January 18, 1898), a time capsule was buried on January 17, 1998 in Centennial Park, located at 1028 E. Sixth Street (Sixth and Peoria). Various items were placed in this capsule including a purple, Chrysler Prowler, a case of Webber’s Root Beer, and a cellular phone. This capsule is to remain buried for 50 years and will be dug up again sometime in 2048.

Cut from trivia section [ edit ]

These two parts don’t seem very encyclopedic:

Voted one of the worst cars produced in the 1990s [ citation needed ]

By the mid-1990s, car designers had powerful new computer tools at their disposal, allowing them to pursue low-volume, high-zoot projects that before would never have recovered the development costs. The Prowler was one such project. Inspired, if not plagiarized, by a retro-roadster design by Chip Foose, the Prowler looked like a dry-lake speedster from the 22nd century, with an open-wheel front end and low-slung hotrod fuselage.

Except they forgot to make it a hotrod. Intent on containing costs, Chrysler stuck its standard-issue 3.5-liter V6 under the hood, good for a rather less than spectacular 250 hp. The Prowler didn’t even have a manual transmission, which made it almost impossible to lay down the requisite stripes of hot rubber.

The result was a flaccid little jerk of a car that threatened much but delivered little.

So I cut them to here in case they are salvageable. Huw Powell (talk ) 22:41, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

What’s with the link to Guinness World Records? There’s no mention in the article, just the link. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 68.200.255.180 (talk ) 03:22, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
