A 1984 Dodge Ram 50 'Royal' Turbo Diesel. The Ram 50 was a 'captive import' of Mitsubishi's compact pickup and was sold in the US by Chrysler through two generations from 1978 until 1994. The captive import concept, popular in the 1980s, allows an automaker like Mitsubishi, which had no presence in the US until 1981, to leverage the brand equity and dealer network of an already-established automaker in order to gain a foothold in the new market. In addition to eventually being sold in the US directly by Mitsubishi, two versions of the pickup were offered by Chrysler - a Dodge version known as the D-50 from 1979-1980 and later as the Ram 50 from 1981-1994, and a short-lived Plymouth version called the Arrow Truck and sold only from 1979-1982. I've never seen an Arrow Truck, but I am finding that D-50s/Ram 50s are more common than I previously thought, at least around these parts. The Ram 50 of this era was sold in four trim-levels; Custom, Royal, Sport, and Big Horn, and with three available engines; a 2.0 L gasolie, a 2.6 L gasoline for the Sport model, and 3.7 L turbo diesel V6, which made 95 horsepower and 170 lb-ft of torque.

This was purchased from a friend that purchased it from the original owner. This truck was stripped down to the frame and rebuilt with all of the best parts back in the 90’s. For many years it won trophies around Michigan. The original owner was so particular about this truck, even the block was color matched. Onto the details.

I ordered the carb so it should be here soon. I will install it and update once it gets here. I am not open to trades. Cash is king. No bs. This is a great truck straight out of a 90’s time capsule. I can show the truck on my time only. I am a very busy guy so please respect the time we meet up by showing up. The price is obo but please don’t lowball be. If you know these trucks, you know many parts on it are worth more than what I am asking.
