While not the worlds first production convertible truck (Ford offered a factory built roadster with a truck bed from 1925 through 1934). In 1989 Dodge would add this twist to its popular mid-size pickup by offering the Dakota Sport Convertible. These cool pickups were built at Chrysler's Dodge City truck complex in Warren, Michigan. They were then shipped to the American Sunroof Co. (ASC) a few miles away. ASC removed the roofs and added the necessary components to turn the Dakota into a convertible. Once completed the Dakota Sport convertible featured a manual vinyl top that could be folded back and covered with a boot, or completely removed.

The Dakota Sport convertibles were offered as either as 4x2s or  4x4s with shift-on-the-fly and a base price of $14,425.  1989 trucks came equipped with a 125-hp, fuel-injected V-6 engine mated with a five-speed manual or optional three-speed automatic transmission.
