Randy's Dodge Rampage Turbo '82 restoration
Randy - 21 year old CNC machine operator from Edmonton - has been
developing a nice hobby since he was a kid - a car restoration.
When he was 16, his dad gave him an old 1982 Dodge Rampage turbo that he previously bought for 500 dollars.
Randy, after couple of months of driving, decided to restore it.
So here is the story when Randy with a little help of his dad turned the
old unattractive vehicle into a great car. It took 4 years of hard work.

1984 Dodge Rampage Restoration part 1
First video of the work I'm doing on the Rampage. The first goal is to get
the (presumed) broken flexplate replaced and get it running. After pulling
the rad and removing the inspection cover on the transmission, I found that
the flexplate is not broken. All three bolts have come out of the torque
converter and are jammed between the flexplate and the engine. It took me
about four hours to get all of the bolts out, and it was starting to get
dark, so I just gave up for the day and will work on it more on Friday.
1984 Dodge Rampage Red
This was the last year of the two year production of this Omni-Horizon
based truck. It used the 2.2 liter engine and by this time had a 4 speed
manual or 3 speed automatic. The Plymouth Scamp was the same basic truck
offered by Plymouth dealers. Front wheel drive and the small engine
limited it in truck duty, so it really was only a niche player..but still a
cool vehicle. I seldom see any examples today.

The Rampage is ALIVE!
It was in the 60's here today, so I finished up the flexplate on the
Rampage and got it running, and MOVING. Not going to say driving, since I
only pulled it out of the garage, cleaned the garage, and put it back in.
One thing, the engine sounds like CRAP. I honestly don't even know if
there's any oil getting to the top end of the engine from what it sounds
like. This thing doesn't even have an oil *light* let alone a gauge. This
was the engine out of the parts rampage, and I hadn't even intended on
keeping it, let alone putting it in the truck and trying to start it. It
had been sitting outside for about 5 years, on its side, exposed to the
weather. I think I'm going to at least put some "new" used oil in it when
I change the oil in the Imperial. At least I can move it now, so I can
start on the body work when the weather gets a bit consistent.

You don't see Rampage trucks much anymore...the last I remember videoing
was in Daytona Beach. They seem to be an endangered species! This one has
been nicely reupholstered. It's a very serviceable little truck...and has
automatic and A/C to make life easier!
