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.

Classic Car Overview

Style, rarity, and affordability all combine on this 1979 Dodge Magnum XE. So as you look over everything from the V8 power to the A/C interior, youll discover a cool coupe that knows how to stand out. This was the first series that ever used Magnum model name, and this does a great job of conveying the premium and forceful image the title carries. After all, it has the long hood and crisp design that instantly announced this was a personal coupe made to own the road. Plus, those retractable translucent headlight covers were a finishing touch that looked like they were pure style. And while these were a signature piece, theyre true purpose was to help cheat the wind for NASCAR races just like the Dodge Charger Daytona a decade prior. And just like those special Chargers, these first-gen Magnums have rarity on their side, too, with production lasting only two model years. More than just sporty, theres also refined style seen in details like the opera windows and the way the grille subtly continues under the headlights and around the side. Its all finished in the factory-correct shade of Nightwatch Blue. Inside the sea of blue continues. This car has averaged around 1,500 miles annually, and this is directly reflected in the fresh look of the interior. It has a terrific vintage style and so youll be quite happy that theres plenty of room for family and friends. But even when youre just going solo, this Magnum is terrific. You have the individual comfort of a fold-down armrest to give you bucket-like comfort. And theres plenty of premium wood-like trim, including on the factory dual-spoke steering wheel. The controls are built around the driver, and the means an easy reach to great features like cruise control, the factory AM/FM stereo, and controls for the updated R134a air conditioning. In a coupe this original so far, its great to see such an honest and correct engine bay. In fact, this 318 cubic-inch V8 shows all the right signs of being the original powerplant. And while youll love the vintage details, this also shows signs of the correct maintenance, including the belts and hoses. These V8s are great for torque, which gets you off the line with confidence. And this one runs smooth like a well-engineered Mopar should. Plus, you have all the right easy cruising features with the Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front. The sale comes with nice paperwork, including the original dealer invoice, title documentation, and the owners manual. Plus, there are some handy spare components that are included, too. It all adds up to a great classic coupe offered at a terrific price. Call today!!!
