I've seen minorly rusty Warlocks go for 10k. And all they were was a sticker package, nothing else special.

But...the 454 SS's were slow bone stock, and the Lightnings at first weren't even that good looking until they made the newer bodystyle.
Also, ours are basically the same as a Pace Truck. Neither were numbered and both were about the same amount of units produced.

I also wish Dodge would've done a few more things. Like you said, offered a 5/6 speed, supercharged them, numbered them, or even offered a special interior package. But...still, our trucks are special. As much as a GLH Omni or something like that, which are really going up in value, and honestly, its an Omni...lol

So...ours have potential. But, only time will tell.

Until then, any mod I make, I'll keep the original stuff, just in case.
Good call on keeping the original stuff. That bastard owner before me changed out the wheels... That honestly pisses me off to not have them. Can't complain though, my tires grip pretty damn good.
