|DODGE ENTHUSIASTS, STOP, READ THE AD, AND VIEW THE PHOTOS. EXTREMELY RARE AND UNIQUE SPORT UTILITY VEHICLE. 1999 DODGE DURANGO SUPER PURSUIT II. ORIGINALLY THE CREATION OF PERFORMANCE WEST GROUP, FOUNDED BY LARRY WEINER, AS THE SEMA SUPER PURSUIT CONCEPT VEHICLE. NEXT, CONVERTED INTO THE SHELBY SP360 FOR CHRYSLER CORPORATION, AVAILABE VIA SPECIAL ORDER TO THE PUBLIC. FINALLY, AT THE END OF FACTORY PRODUCTION, CONTINUED AS SUPER PURSUIT II, CONVERTED BY THE ORIGINAL SUB CONTRACT CONVERSION COMPANY, STAR COACH PERFORMANCE INC. BASICALLY AN SUV STREET MACHINE. MOPAR MUSCLE MAGAZINE, IN AN APRIL 01, 2000 ARTICLE, DECLARED THE STAR COACH SUPER PURSUIT II WAS A SUPERIOR VEHICLE TO THE ORIGINAL SHELBY SP360. LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS BEAUTY. DON'T MISS THE CHANCE TO OWN IT. WHEN WILL YOU SEE ANOTHER? HIGHWAY MILES. LOOKS AND DRIVES LIKE A 50,000 MILE TRUCK.
Race Truck Trends in California and Star Coach Performance in Georgia were the two major companies authorized by Dodge to perform the conversions. Most of the Durangos were shipped directly from the factory in Newark to either company depending on whether final delivery was for the Eastern US (Star Coach in GA) or the Western US (Race Truck Trends in CA.) They would "convert" the stock Durango into a SP360 and then shipped it on to the particular dealership where it was ordered.
When the factory production run ended, the two sub contractors stepped in. Star Coach continued to offer the package. However, due to trademark laws, they substituted some of the components with similar pieces. These include the hood, exhaust, and paint color. The SP360 was renamed the Super Pursuit II. This conversion could be personalized with any component of the SP360 package that the customer desired. They also offered some additional options that weren't available on the original SP360 package. They even offered a factory warranty. Star Coach offered this package until they went bankrupt in 2003. These units, of course, did not have the serialized dash plaques. It is unknown whether Race Truck Trends ever offered the complete package, but they sold various SP360 components and parts.
Although the Super Pursuit II is not a "factory" SP360, it is still an extremely close cousin. Also, although not quite as rare as the original, it is still a unique find.
Don't miss this opportunity. This is the equivalent of finding the proverbial needle in a haystack.
Clean, straight body finished in the original Intense Blue Pearl Metallic. (Star Coach could not offer Viper Blue, due to Shelby trademarks).
