Description: I’ve decided to sell our Dodge Viper 1996 RT/10 to start saving for my daughter’s College Fund coming up in the next few years. I purchased the car from a dealership in Ohio just under 2 years ago for $39,500 delivered to my door. At that time, it has about 18,000 miles on it, and now it has a little over 25,000 miles on it. This car is only 1 of 166 that was produced in this color red and yellow color scheme, and one similar to it was featured in the movie “Vegas Vacation” with Chevy Chase. They show it a couple of times in the movie, once when Rusty wins one like it in the Casino, and then again at the end of the movie when the entire family is driving away (Google it for additional pics).

The car is 99% stock and original except for the below 3 items, which I can put back to original for you, or I can include the original parts in a box if that’s what you prefer:

1. Smooth Intake Tubes with K&N Air Filters – I have the original stock intake tubes with the regular air filters that take about 15 minutes to change back over.

2. 2” Driver’s Seat Lowing Kit – I am about 6’ tall, and it gives a nice amount of extra head room if you desire. The changeover back to the original adjustable seat track takes about 45 minutes.

3. Shift Knob lowering adapter – When I replaced the red factory shift knob last year, I installed a 2” lowering adapter which gives smother shifts and lowers the shift knob so you can see and operate the radio a lot easier. Changeover back to original takes about 45 minutes. I have the original shift knob as well, however it had a little bit of wear on it after over 20 years, and the new red knob really was a nice replacement.

Other than those 3 mods, everything else is factory stock, down to the cassette player that still functions properly. I have the original owner’s manual and associated paperwork including the factory tool to remove the wheel covers in order to avoid scratching the finish on the wheels. The factory leather storage bags for the side and rear windows are included as well as the soft top storage bag. The car did not come with the factory tonneau cover, however you can pick one up on E-Bay or from one of the Viper vendors or Viper Forum members for roughly $300 - $400 dollars. I was going to grab one earlier this year, however I knew I would never use it, and it was just sit in the basement or trunk taking up space. Original spare tire is in the trunk and is in excellent condition. Below is a list of the items that I have replaced since I purchased it. Most parts are factory Mopar parts purchased from Chuck Tator, the Viper ‘Wizard” up in New York:

New Michelin PS2 Tires & 4-Wheel Alignment - $1,433.97

New Mopar Ignition Wires, Spark Plugs, Fuel Filter, & Serpentine Belt – $246.76

New Mopar Front Oxygen Sensors - $227.46

New Low Dust EBC Red Brake Pads - $295.99

New PCM from Dan Lessor @ Viper Specialty Performance – $1,800.00

Lumber Seat Bladder Pumps – $15.18

New Mopar Battery - $125.95

2 New Mopar remote Key Fobs (I have the original) - $212.40

The only item that needs to be replaced, which is a common problem to all of the ’96 RT/10’s, is the check valve in the fuel pump assembly. On these cars, it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when it fails. As a result, you just need to cycle the key 6-8 times before starting, which results in priming the fuel rail, and reduces the amount of cranking time when starting. I’m not sure if there are new ones still available, or if you have wind up going with a used one. As it was explained to me, you have to remove the whole fuel pump assembly as a unit which includes the check valve as an assembly. Certainly not a big deal, but just wanted to include that info as full disclosure. The car runs perfectly fine with the check valve as it currently is.

The car runs and drives very strong with no smoke from the exhaust, and no leaks or drips when parked. It’s always been garage kept, and I keep a battery tender on it while it is parked in the garage. I had a 4-wheel alignment completed with when I had the tires installed, and the car tracks straight and true, with the steering wheel perfectly centered. Clutch is smooth and operates without any noises or slipping. I’ve changed the oil 3 or 4 times with Mobil 1 0W40 Full Synthetic and the correct Viper factory oil filter since I’ve owned it, and have always used Sunoco 93 Ultra in the tank.

The soft top has no rips or tears in it, and the side slider windows are in excellent condition with no scratches on the plastic windows. Both factory screws are still attached as well. Original floor mats are still in good condition with no rips, tears, or stains. Leather seats are perfect, with no wear on the driver’s side bolster from getting in and out over the year’s. The inflatable lumbar air bladders still function properly and hold air.

I am into the car for well over $44,000, and as we know, you never get everything out of the car that you put into it. Below is a little snippet from Hagerty’s website as a point of reference. I would consider this car as pretty close to excellent as you can get, as it really looks awesome when it’s shined up and the yellow wheels are dust free. I’ve owned my fair share of hot rods over the years, Corvette’s, Trans Am’s, etc., however this car hands down attracts the most attention out of them all. People actually stop in their tracks as you drive by, and take videos on their phones while driving trying to figure out what kind of car it is. With that, comes the McViper, the Ronald McDonald car, and Ketchup & Mustard comments, however again, with this car, either you love it or hate it, take your pick. Feel free to call my cell at (610) 360-5836 if have any additional questions, or you need additional information not listed above. I can send you additional pics if you have a specific request(s), or we can Facetime if you would like to see live footage. I can assist with shipping as necessary. I have the clear title in hand, no liens. Clean Carfax as well.

I've been on E-Bay for almost 20 years with 100% positive feedback, so bid with confidence. Remember, no goofy wire transfer promises or overseas off-shore account nonsense please. Car and title will be released when payment is received and verified.
