If you are an enthusiast of American muscle trucks, there is a 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Daytona Regular Cab that has surfaced for auction that may grab your attention. This iconic vehicle delivered new to Brenner Motors of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, boasts a striking Go ManGo! paint finish, paying homage to its Charger Daytona predecessor. With a mere 70,000 miles on the odometer, this well-maintained classic has unique features and performance enhancements, making it a coveted piece for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
The Daytona’s exterior is a sight to behold, showcasing its heritage-inspired design elements. The tall rear spoiler, reminiscent of the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona, adds an aerodynamic touch, while black bedside graphics pay homage to its legendary ancestor. Notable features include a chrome fuel door, tinted rear glass, fog lights, and a distinctive Power Bulge hood with a faux scoop. Additionally, a roll-up tonneau cover and a spray-in bedliner provide practicality without compromising style.
Equipped with chrome-finished 20-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, wrapped in Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires, the Daytona exudes a powerful presence. Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes ensure confident stopping power, providing performance and safety in equal measure.
Inside, the Dark Slate Gray cloth upholstered seats provide comfort and durability. The center stack and door panels are accented with body-colored trim, enhancing the cohesive interior design. Modern amenities include a power-adjustable driver’s seat, cruise control, air conditioning, and a later-model folding center armrest with convenient storage and cupholders. Noteworthy upgrades include a backup camera and a Pioneer touchscreen head unit paired with Infinity speakers for an enhanced audio experience.
The heart of this Daytona is its 5.7-liter (345 cubic-inch) HEMI® V8 engine, factory-rated at 345 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque. Not content with factory specifications, the engine has been fine-tuned with a Superchips Flashpaq performance tuner, elevating its performance to a new level. Regular maintenance, including a recent coolant flush and oil change, ensures that this beast is ready to deliver power on demand.
Power is seamlessly transmitted through a five-speed automatic transmission, offering smooth shifts and dynamic acceleration. The Daytona features a limited-slip differential, a dual-range transfer case, and side-exit exhaust outlets, adding to its formidable capabilities. In 2019, the transmission and differential fluids were changed, and the transfer case shifter bushing was replaced to ensure peak performance.
This exceptional 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 Daytona Regular Cab is being offered at auction without reserve, giving enthusiasts a rare opportunity to own a piece of American automotive history. With a clean Carfax report and a comprehensive set of service records, this Daytona is a prime example of a meticulously cared-for classic.
