With the information shared by Dan I was able to create a better version of this video, this time with a music track and a much higher resolution. It's fairly large at 10MB, but it's a lot better quality that my first attempt.

The link works fine for me, the video plays perfectly. Maybe you have a Codec issue? What hapens when you click the link? Try right-clicking the link and save it to your hard drive, does that help?

SuperDave,

I removed some of the jerky video and made a windows media version.

Does this work better for most of you??

That is one crazy looking prowler!

The Meyers snow plow Headlight's are a nice touch.

I've have seen it before and actually have been trying to find it again, thanks for posting it, a great video that will go to my video library.

Thanks Dave & Dan

That is the pilot/prototype when Prowler was under design.
The disguise was to throw off the photographers sneaking around the proving grounds.

Found this article on the internet........it states that Chrysler built 5 of the Pranglers.

quote:
All about the Prowler

In an age when car designs are looking more and more similar, the Plymouth Prowler stands in stark, steely contrast. This American hot rod continues to draw slack-jawed stares on the street, three years after its release.

The muscular Prowler throws automotive enthusiasts back to the high school auto shop classes of the 1950s, when a car's menacing appearance was more important than its owner's placement in social hierarchy.

The Prowler also continues to cram our inbox with inquiries. Readers want to know more about the Prowler than practically any other car out there today. So join us on a history lesson:

Brainstorming for the Plymouth Prowler hot rod began in 1990 in the design studios at Chrysler Corp. in Auburn Hills, Mich. On paper, it was radical.

When the Plymouth Prowler made its debut at the 1993 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, it created crowds. Most show-goers wanted to know if the concept car could actually be built for the American road.

Because it created such a stir, Chrysler's top boss Bob Eaton gave the go-ahead for design and build of the Prowler.

In 1995, Chrysler engineers built 5 Prangler cars, a combination vehicle made up of Jeep Wrangler and Prowler mechanical parts.

The site of the North American International Auto Show was again chosen to introduce the production version of the Prowler in 1996 in Detroit. The following year, the Prowler would go on sale to the public.

The initial production run was set at 5,000. There were hardly any changes between the original concept car and the production model. The Prowler cost $39,000 in 1997.

The top speed of the Prowler is 118 miles per hour. It can jump from zero to 60 mph in 7 seconds flat. Its horsepower is rated at 214.

The engine is a 3.5-liter, 24-valve V6 -- the same used in the Dodge Intrepid in 1997.

The Prowler's frame was crafted by Indianapolis race car builders and is made of aluminum, making it light, yet strong.

The Prowler features Goodyear's Extended Mobility tires that have a run-flat capability. It needs run-flat tires because there is no room for a spare tire.

The Prowler, of course, is meant to have its top down, but the car actually looks better with the top on.

The Prowler features twin tail pipes in back, making it look like there was a powerful engine under the hood. The engineers made the pipes large to aid in that perception.

The biggest problem facing Plymouth engineers was the front bumper. They wanted it to look good, yet abide by the strict government safety standards for energy-absorbing bumpers.

The cast-iron block and alloy heads engine is mounted in back of the driver, along with the 4-speed transaxle that can be fully automatic or semiautomatic.

In its first year of production, the Prowler was only produced in purple. The following year, bright yellow was added to the lineup.

The rear tires of the Prowler are 295/40 tires on tall 20-inch rims.

The length of the Prowler is 165.3 inches. Its wheelbase is 113.3 inches and it weighs 2,856 pounds. The front track is 62.2 inches and at the rear it is 63.5 inches.

The Prowler has gas mileage of 20 miles per gallon.

What if I want to buy one of the Pranglers? I do live in an area with a lot of off-road trails, and I like my Prowler too much to explore them with the car version.
