Somebody's junkyard tribute to the Shelby Charger cars. I say junkyard tribute as a good chunk of those parts came off of other cars and do not fit the car, err I mean truck.

There was a California Shelby Rampage or Direct Connection Rampage how ever you name it.
http://www.pnw-sdac...._serialNumber=1
"We are going to do a Rampage or a Shelby Street-Fighter version of the Rampage. That is the first thing we are going to do."
- Carroll Shelby, Car Exchange Magazine, 1983

It is thought of to be the first Shelby Dodge before Shelby was a manufacture. I hope some one finds an origanal window sticker from one of these trucks some day. My self I own one of the 200+ built trucks, an origanal with the 15" tire call out on the door. Would have been nice to buy one with a 5 speed or auto in 85 with a turbo.

Well that is a JY queen, since it's a 4 headlight nose it can't be the California Shelby Rampage. The hoodscoop and side scoops are off an 82-83 Rampage 2.2 and the CS and Turbo Z emblems are from a Daytona. Also notice the side skirts are too short so they are from a Charger since the Rampage wheelbase is slightly longer than a Charger.
Below is a pic of an 84 Rampage Cali Shelby.

Too bad it didn't happen except for the prototype/design study/parts chasers; they might have sold well.

They made a total of 218 Direct Connection Rampages in 1984,only for the California market.

They all have special factory option codes,and also have a 205 50 15 tire size sticker inside the door jam.

Chrysler did not want to pay the shelby licensing fees for a dead model,so the trucks were done up without the shelby decals.

Direct Connection decals were used in place of shelby.

The official name of is " California Direct Connection Rampage"

Canada had it's own "Direct Connection" Rampage in 83, with number totaling a little over 200. I believe they had the H.O 2.2, along with roof spoiler, graphics etc. There was a pic of Shelby beside one....in one of the Mopar performance catelogues from the 80s I believe.

A couple of these Canadian DC Rampages have materialized recently in Alberta. I'm hoping to get some more details, or at least see one of them in person.

I think we need to inject a little more info in this thread, so here goes.

For the 1984 U.S spec "ZH28" D.C Rampages

AEAA01 - "EXTERIOR APPEARANCE PACKAGE - SHELBY" [Read: Shelby upper front grille and lower spoiler].
KPPF41 - "STRIPES & DECALS DIRECT CONN." [Read: Shelby beltline and lower strips as well as "Direct Connection" windshield decal].
ZTDA06 - "DIRECT CONN. INSTL. BULK PARTS" [Read: Direct Connection side ground effects].
DLDA01 - "TRANSAXLE - 5 SPEED - 2.78 O.T" [Read: Close-ratio 5-speed transmission. This is the same unit used on the Shelby Charger and Omni GLH].
NT9A01 - "ACCELERATOR PEDAL - SHELBY".
WJCA01 - 15x6.00 CAST ALUMINUM WHEELS [Read: "Pizza" wheels, which were also used on 1984 Shelby Charger].
LMAA21 - "SINGLE HALOGEN HEADLAMP SYSTEM".
NEBA01 - "PERFORMANCE EXHAUST SYSTEM".
CUAA01 - "CENTER ARM REST AND CONSOLE".
MRAA01 - "DELETE WHEEL LIP MOULDINGS".
SBAA01 - "POWER STRG. - FAST RATIO" (Read: Quick-ratio power steering. This is the same unit used on the Shelby Charger and Omni GLH).
ZW9E01 - "SPECIAL GVWR OF 3350 LBS"

For the 248 Canadian Spec "Special Order" 1983 D.C Rampages, visual differences were much like the US. Spec DCs, only with a few things added, and a few taken away. Standard features include:
"EXTERIOR GROUND EFFECTS PACKAGE" ZTDA06
"Direct Connection front airdam"
"Body-side molding delete"
"Fender vent appliqués"
"Roof-mount spoiler"
"Sport hood scoop - black"
"DC Performance Chrome Valve Cover"
"Road wheels - 13x5 steel"
"Dual Remote mirrors"
"Bed Tonneau Cover - Hard shelled style, with ribbed design and integrated spoiler - Black"
"Stripe package, with 'Direct Connection' logo, and bodyside stripe" (could be deleted upon request)
