Dodge has been around since the 1900s when it was founded as the Dodge Brothers Company, until 1928, when it was acquired by Chrysler Corporation and became one of its most successful divisions. Dodge has produced vehicles in all shapes and sizes and entered many market niches. The Dodge, which was a success with the masses, was eventually succeeded by the Dodge Neon, a front-wheel driven compact car that was produced from 1995 to 2005 and then from 2017 to 2021 as a rebadged Fiat Tipo for the Mexican market. Up for grabs is a first-generation 1999 Dodge Neon with a restomod paying homage to its racing heyday and comes with just 50,000 miles on the odometer.
The regular Dodge Neon is nothing to write about, but this particular 1999 Dodge Neon Racecar restomod was custom built by Bob Sorokanich of Jalopnik and PVO. The entire car has been equipped with a body kit from Team Xenon which features aero front and rear bumpers, side skirts, and a rear spoiler. It features a custom paint/decal in yellow, red, green, white, and blue. A set of chrome-painted Motegi Racing 18' 7-spoke wheels grace this Neon, while behind them lurk black-painted Wilwood brake calipers. The exterior design also flows into the interior, where the doors feature a PVO logo. The interior also features a custom dashboard with a Pioneer head unit, a 6-disc DVD player, 5 JBL amplifiers, Infinity speakers, and a Sharp 10" display. The gauges are transplanted from a 2003 Dodge Viper GTS, while Dodge Neon SRT-4 bucket seats are in place, along with a MOMO knob shifter and a MOMO steering wheel. The rear-placed handcrafted fiberglass audio system features a screaming skull decal.
The Dodge Neon came in 3 power options, this particular 1999 Dodge Neon Racecar restomod features a new 2.0L inline-4 engine reportedly with less than 500 miles and coupled with the original 5-speed T-350 manual transmission. Upgrades include large injectors, lowered suspension with MOPAR performance springs, and ACR struts. Wilwood disc brakes on all corners upgrade the stopping power from standard.
