1979 Chrysler CordobaReview
Chrysler 'o Doom — The Cordoba's 360ci V8 has decent get up and go, and gets surprisingly good fuel mileage on the highway, but it's really cold blooded and likes to be warmed up at start up. Brakes well for a car it's age, but the front end needs to be rebuilt, it likes to meander about the road. Like all Chrysler's of this vintage, the build quality isn't all that great, but it has been well taken care of for it's 88,000 miles. The interior is in good condition, and those white vinyl seats really pop with the red interior lights. Sadly, the years have taken it's toll on the exterior, with the dented driver side and rusted out passenger side and what not. All in all, it's a pretty nice car.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Roomy, muscle car-ish, nice interior
Cons: rusty, dented, needs a little work

I came with a 6.6 litre / 400 c.i.d. engine. Too much engine for single exhaust. It had the crown roof trim that would glow when the headlights were turned on. Loved the medallion hood ornament it h... Read More

Excellent Car, Especially As A Second "just For Fun" Ride
Fun car. Not the most practical, but an absolute joy to drive. Like a lot of old cars, it's very tempermental, guzzles gas and fluids, and performance has dipped significantly. But, it still steers we... Read More
