I don't know of any factory variations/options for the 2003 Viper at all nor do I recall any "blacked-out" emblems. The variations didn't come until the 2004 model (Mamba editions). If you are not the original owner, then the previous owner(s) customized the emblems.
The general "idea" of used values is what they are currently being listed and sold for. Autotrader, Cars.com, Ebay, should give you a general idea. KBB and Edmunds values are based on standard depreciation which is not a true indication of the value - especially for this type of car. The...
Looks like the Gen. IV OE hood supply has dried up. I sold mine back in the summer of last year. If you get into an accident and need a new hood, you're basically S.O.L. unless you go with an aftermarket one.
Don't understand why it should have three jacking points per side (don't know of very many cars that do). They are specifically there (positioned behind each wheel) to remove the wheels one at time - as in the event of a flat tire situation . There are other areas on the frame that can be used...
There's nothing there to remove. Just need to make sure your jack pad completely clears the sill prior to jacking up the car. Harbor Freight sells low-profile aluminum floor jacks with flat jacking surfaces. Do not use a jack with a deep cup-style or place a hard material between the pad and...

Excellent condition with no repairs or damage. DOT date is 3112 (both tires). Tread depth is 8/32 (8.5/32 is brand new). Just sold my Viper therefore, I won't be needing these any longer. $200 each plus shipping. They are also listed on Ebay.
Well, what are your plans for this car? (Gen. III) As many have already said, you should have no worries if it is only street-driven. If you do plan to track it, then upgrade the oil pan along with a swingarm oil pick-up tube.
Time to sell my wheels. Set of OE 5 Spokes, chromed by Calchrome with receipt. No scratches or road rash. Blemish-free. Local pickup in the Houston, TX area or you pay for shipping (to lower 48 states only). Send me a PM with an offer if interested.
Re: what's up with this soft top cover?Can we drive it fast, or is it meant for cruis
Do like I have done for the past 10 years of gen III vert ownership: Don't use the convertible cover because you don't need it!!!
