Blast from the Past: Newly Restored Dodge Neon ACR Ready to Race Once More

September 11th, 2018 by

Once of the most iconic compact cars of the 1990s, the Dodge Neon was a car with personality, and, if this recent restoration has anything to say, a whole lot of power. An old-school Dodge fan from way back when found a 1994 Dodge Neon ACR and put it up for sale on Ebay after extensively restoring it to a like new state.

It may come as a surprise to many, but the Dodge Neon ACR was a vehicle that could truly meet some high-performance benchmarks, even out-pacing such stock car standards like the Toyota Corolla and the Honda Civic back then. The stock version of the ACR had a 2.0-liter engine that could pump out a serious 132 horsepower, and a double-cam version nudged that to 150 horsepower. Various modded versions cleaned up in stock car race after stock car race back in the 90s, so it’s no surprise that there’s a market for an under-appreciated blast from the past like this one. When this bad boy sold for a mere $5000 last month, we can only imagine how happy the new owner must have been.
