2003 Neon R/T Pictures

It was a rare truck to begin with. 1995 Dakota Club Cab SLT, 318, 5 speed, 2 wheel drive, 3.55 8 1/4 Sure Grip Rear.  It's got cruise control and A/C but manual windows and locks.  It's also got bucket seats.  I'd be curious to see how many trucks with these specs were made.  Gen II Dakotas were only made with a 318 and 5 speed in 1994-1996.
