The 1992 Viper was the beginning of the 25-year production run of the iconic Viper. All 285 of the 1992 Vipers were painted Viper Red Clear Coat. These Viper were built between January 19th, 1992 through November 25th, 1992.
In 1992, information sent to the Viper Registry by Jack Howell, there were 21 production cars that went directly from the assembly line to Chrysler Engineering. These Vipers were utilized for testing and evaluation. Only 8 of those Vipers managed to make it into the hands of consumers during the past 25 years that we are aware of.
The Vipers that went to Chrysler Engineering are (VIN’s ending) 003, 004, 008, 009, 010, 012, 015, 016, 017, 019, 027, 033, 041, 042, 044, 080, 122, 123, 236, 249, 246 and are noted within this book. The following Vipers may have never been sold to the public (VIN’s ending) 003, 004, 008, 010, 015, 016, 017, 019, 027, 041, 042, 044, 080. These Vipers may bring more money in the long run.
There were also 3 1992 Vipers that were repainted, 1 Yellow, 1 Green and 1 Black. The only one of these three that has been verified is the Black 1992 Viper, VIN is (1B3BR65E3NV100076).
The Production Year is the Volume and the Books contained within those volumes are small collections within the Production Year (i.e., Color, Special Edition, RT/10, GTS, SRT, ACR, GTC, etc.).
Disclaimer: The Viper Registry Books are in no way affiliated with Chrysler, Dodge, Viper, SRT or any other company involved in the production of the Viper. It is also important to know that each VIN in these books has been verified as real and are associated with a built Viper. Early in the Viper History unverified documents were circulated identifying the production of the Viper. Through my 9 years of research, I have found several differences between those documents and what I have found.
There is a Viper with the VIN ending HV731948 (31,948) which was to announce the final production count for the Viper throughout the years (1992-2017), I currently have in my database 31,956 verified VIN’s, as of the writing of these books. If you find a Viper that is not contained in these books, please send the VIN to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, apart from Special Editions, Vipers were NOT numbered, the Registry did the best it could with the data available at the time of this printing to provide some sense of the build sequence.
These books are designed to help identify Vipers and the equipment that came on each Viper. Because the manufacturer was not involved in these books, I cannot absolutely guarantee these books are complete and accurate, however, I have endeavored to create the most comprehensive accounting of Vipers available. The use of this data is at your own risk.
