The Dodge Ramcharger was a pick-up truck that was launched in 1974. From launch until 1980 it came without a roof – dealers could be tasked with fitted either a removable steel roof or a fabric top. In the first two years of the Ramcharger’s life, even the passenger seat was an optional extra. Another extra was a refrigerated center console. Engines were all V8, ranging from 5.2-liters up to 7.2 liters. In 1981, the second-generation Ramcharger was launched with a fixed steel roof. There were only two engines, both V8s of 5.2 liters or 5.9 liters.
