4th of July: 1989 Dodge Shelby Dakota

We continue our weekend of celebrating America with something that is as American as Apple iPie. American, what do you mean? It’s a performance pickup. Nobody outside of the USA (or Australia) ever looked at a pickup and thought, “I bet that would make a good sports car platform.” Carroll Shelby was a legend in his own time, and he put his name on all kinds of random vehicles, but none quite so strange as the V8-powered Dodge Shelby Dakota pickup. Find this 1989 Dodge Shelby Dakota bidding for $11,000 in San Francisco, CA via ebay motors.
