Vendor Notes:
This Viper has previously been owned in southern California by one very very fastidious owner prior to being bought in the US and driven around SoCal by the current owner. The file of receipts includes the original window sticker and a huge complication of invoices for the work done to the Viper throughout his ownership. The battery was replaced by the current owner here in Australia. This viper is over 25 years old and would qualify for VicRoads club registration.

The 1997 Dodge Viper GTS coupe was purchased new by the original owner from Barwick Dodge of San Juan Capistrano, California, and performance modifications applied to its 8.0-liter V10 include Edelbrock headers, a four-row aluminium radiator with dual electric fans, a 170-degree thermostat, 4 inch free-flow catalytic converters, and a Mopar cat-back exhaust. Finished in Viper Red over black leather upholstery, the car features a six-speed manual transmission as well as 18 inch Kinesis wheels, StopTech slotted rotors and calipers, KW coilovers, aftermarket sway bars, fog lights, a limited-slip differential, air conditioning, power windows, and a Crow Enterprises driver harness. This Viper GTS shows 200k miles and is now offered with its window sticker, partial service records, a car cover, two keys with remotes, extra keys, a Viper branded cover, a huge file of receipts including an invoice for USD$24K for an engine rebuild, a clean Carfax report, and a clean California title in the seller’s name.

The car is finished in Viper Red (PRN) and features projector-style headlights, fog lights, a vented hood, and dual center-exit exhaust outlets. The original owner had the front end repainted after the air dam was damaged from the car being loaded onto a flatbed tow truck.

Kinesis five-spoke 18 inch wheels are mounted with newer 95% 275/35 front and 335/30 rear Toyo Proxes R888R tires that show 2021 date codes. StopTech slotted brake rotors and calipers have been fitted, and KW coilovers and aftermarket sway bars were also installed.

The cabin features bucket seats upholstered in black leather with sueded inserts in addition to a black dashboard, centre console, door panels, and carpeting. Equipment includes air conditioning, power windows, adjustable foot pedals, dual airbags, and a Crow Enterprizes five-point harness for the driver.

A leather-wrapped steering wheel fronts a 200-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline. Auxiliary gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, fuel level, and voltage are mounted atop the centre stack. The six-digit mechanical odometer shows 200k miles.

The 8.0-liter OHV V10 was rebuilt at around 150k miles. Extensive receipts verify every expense. The steering rack and pinion and the MAP sensor were replaced in March 2018.

The window sticker details factory colours and equipment as well as a total price of $70,000 and delivery to Barwick Dodge.

The Viper drives flawlessly, is extremely fast and handles like a go kart. The previous owner had never raced or attended track days with it. He was just a petrol head at heart…
