From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
1978 Chrysler Cordoba De Plaane Boz, De Plane!! Cue the Ottmar Liebert guitar music and have Ricardo Montalban on his spot! Action!! C rdoba also spelled Cordova in English, is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of C rdoba. Who can forget that wonderful Spanich rrrroll of the tongue by actor Rrricardo Montelban and his infamous Chrysler Cordoba Commercials! And now for consignment that famous car made famous by the famous actor and his use of the words Rich Corinthian Leather . They say good things come in twos so we give you this 1978 version of the Cordoba and doing a great job of gracing our pasillos sagrados . Exterior 1978 brought us the large midsize car meant to save on gas yet still provide comfort for the family to be transported in comfort. So, they came up with the Cordoba with its leading edge dual stacked rectangular headlights and smaller turn signal light flanking the larger headlights, and rounding the corner on the front quarters. A central chrome encased vertical ribbed grille in V form is in on, and a nice corresponding bumper below. Formal Sable Tan Sunfire metallic, (and it has flakes), adorns this car with a few faults, but overall, nicety has been retained. Shiny trimmings for the wheel wells and rockers and a medium tan vinyl landau top complete with opera window in on the rear third of the roof. A trunk with room for all the luggage and then some is under the large long rear deck. On either side are square taillights, and below a shiny bike bumper to cradle the taillights and frame the bottom of the trunk. Brushed aluminum 15-inch Chrysler wheels are on all 4 corners and wrapped in 215/75-R15s all around. Interior Wait for it...Wait for it...Corrrrrinthian Leather (swoon and a faint to the couch!) wrapped in saddle brown Corinthian Leather and vinyl adorn the interior surfaces of this classic. Front high back buttoned and tufted buckets sit in front of the original dash setup and a similar buttoned and tufted rear bench is stretching across the back from cathedral window to cathedral window. 1978 adornments like a cassette player, cruise control, power windows, power moon roof. and power locks. All this in a sea of gold carpeting, and a smooth one piece headliner also in gold. Certainly, all that glitters it is.! Hay oro en ellos colinas!! Drivetrain Looking original with shine patina this 400ci V8 with its single recently rebuilt Lean Burn 4-barrel carb atop and A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission on back, and a 8 1/4 inch 3.23 gear rear axle is ripe for the picking. Very nicely detailed and preserved. Simply BONITA! Undercarriage Some surface rust on the usual suspects like the suspension and driveshaft, but otherwise looking just great. Torsion bar suspension for the front, and leaf springs for the rear along with power disc brakes on front and power drums for the back and a nice solid exhaust , take the wheel and drive to the coast Meester Montebahn!! Drive-Ability A quick starter and inside was luxurious in the tufted and buttoned Corinthian Leather...I just love saying that...Corinthian Leather...but I digress to the test track where she lumbered around turns with that cushy 1978 ride, nice smooth acceleration, and bias free panic stopping. I noticed the drivers power seat front and back adjustments are inoperable. Always garaged, we have a unique high optioned classic that will be yours with a roll of the tongue and a roll of cash. Gracias Ricardo Monteban.
