Spirit In The Sky: 1991 Dodge Spirit R/T

Although it might have been the fastest domestic four-door sedan available in the USA for 1991, the Spirit R/T might not earn you accolades from your neighbors or country club members. Nevertheless, it holds the distinction of being Chrysler’s swiftest K-car ever manufactured, a title akin to being the winner of a burnt toast competition. Despite lacking eye-catching bodywork, the Spirit compensates with its impressive 2.2 Series 3 turbo engine, featuring a Lotus-designed four-valve head that generates 224 horsepower and 210 lbs of torque at a mere 2800 rpm. The car’s exclusive A-568 5-speed transmission allows it to achieve impressive 14.5-second 1/4 mile times. With only 1,208 units sold in 1991, the Spirit R/T is now a rare find, nearing extinction after twenty-five years. Find this 1991 Dodge Spirit R/T bidding for $5,100 in Turtle Creek, PA with 2 days to go via ebay.

Runs excellent. No mechanical issues. A couple scratches here and there and some clear coat missing on the hood that’s normal for Chrysler cars of this era. These cars are such a blast to drive and pretty darn fast even by today’s standards.
