I believe it was kind of a prototype for the ram srt10. Not many were built. Not sure

I would guess its just one someone built. They had a prototype vts ram in 94. But it was never built. But its what they based the indys off of.

Looks like a awesome truck though. Is it yours?

I just bought it a couple of weeks ago. All of the data I have found so far says 2 were built. One was at the 1996 Chicago auto show and later at shows on the west coast. The same one, or the second one was supposed to tow a Viper to shows and races. Like this one, they both had Viper V10's and BW T56 6 speeds. Mine is a bit different than those looking at the pics is mine is lowered. This could of been done later though. I'm pretty sure this isn't one of the 2 built, but, whoever built it, spent a LOT of money! It has a Dana60 with 4:11 LS and disc brakes.

I'm just getting started on the restoration. The fellow I got it from, bought it in Florida in 2009 from a Pro golfer. I got his number and left a message hoping he'd call back. He got it in 2005 in South Carolina. That fellow got it in Michigan in 2000 from a Chrysler employee. From 1996 to 2000, I have no clue. The trucks last 6 VIN number is stamped on the block. Looks like a stamp over another number. The same for the Trans. Not sure how deep I want to take a restoration, I'm replacing all of the steering, brakes, rubber and other worn parts. Repaint and interior last.
