  Dakota convertible! The first American convertible pickup since the Ford Model T, it features a fixed roll bar and an uncomplicated manual top. Roughly 2,842 were sold that first year and 909 in 1990. letter from Chrysler

In order to fulfill the Dodge Division's commitment to the American Sunroof Company (who were responsible for the modifications to these trucks), production of the "drop top" Dakota was extended into the 1991 model year. These models were equipped with the new "Magnum" V6 engine, along with the updated front fascia that all other 1991's received. Production was extremely limited, with just 8 produced in total, making them the most rare of all Dakotas. No advertising was given to these 8 trucks, and they do not appear in sales literature.
