I have pondered this question in the past. Starting with the first generation hemis? None were available to any Plymouth. Even when Fury was carrying the intermediate market for Chrysler. Even in the "Hey day" of the muscle car era. When Plymouth was not only dominating the drag strip. But Nascar too. Plymouth was always last in Chrysler's future plans. I bring this up because I have an opportunity to participate or buy a 1999 Plymouth Prawler project. We believe the last year Plymouth Prawler made in the US. (Chrysler took over Prawler for 2000. Thus they knew Plymouth's demise in 1999?) Researching, the highest performance engine available to Prawler was the EGG 3.5 6cyl. Not a terrible engine. But certainly underpowered for a classified sports car? The transmission selection and design is less than ideal. Putting the transmission that far from the engine all but eliminated any chance of a manual transmission option? (Certainly a reasonable cost option.) With car being a roadster? There is room for alternative engine setup. So much for Chrysler's claims engineers had "Free reign?" I'm not seeing? I think im going to pass on the build. The car looks neat. And was a cool (But risky) idea with the Prawler? But this sure looks like the suits talked their way out of any success story for this platform? And perhaps Plymouth as a whole?
