I paid $2000.00 for mine in 1998 with 124,000 on it. Since then it has lost the original drivetrain and replaced with a 360. 727 tranny, and 8 3/4 rear end.

Thread is also for Gen I Daks. I bought my Gen I, 1988, in 2002 with 66K on it for $1,200. Beat the ever living shit outta of it until I crashed it in 2008 with around 135K. Boy do I miss that thing.

How does that thing do on hard corners at high speeds with those front wheels? I was thinking about doing mine up like that but I drive on curvy New England roads.

Thought it was 1986 to 1990, ya learn something new everyday.
Whoever set up the website does not know what they are doing, the only reason they split it up is because they changed the grille, bumper, hood and engines half way through the first generation.
