I bought this car to help ease the pain of not be able to drive my other one while it is being resurrected! Found it on Craigslist tried to get the guy to hold it, but said first come first serve so i offered to give him a thousand as a down payment and he went for it. Car isn't near as fast as my other one but it runs super good and has a nicer interior and better sheet metal than my other one did when i first got it. It is pretty much an all around nicer Chevelle but i guess i can live with trading in some horsepower for quality everywhere else. Though the moment i sense a hick up it is gunna get beefed up! I don't think it is a real SS but it does have everything to make a guy think it is, i love the fact that it is SS's out (i just prefer the look)She Aint perfect (yet!) but it is bought and paid for sitting in my drive!

Also the name of a city in Spain, Cordoba was the name given to an intermediate personal luxury coupe sold by the Chrysler Corporation in North America from 1975 until 1983. The Cordoba was Chrysler's first model produced specifically for the personal luxury market and the original Chrysler branded vehicle that was less than full-size. While other up-market brands were expanding into smaller vehicles in the early 1960's with such models as the Buick Skylark and the Mercury Comet, the Chrysler Company adamantly and very publicly declared that Chrysler vehicles would never get any smaller. (This statement was dismissed within 15 years.).
The Cordoba's emblem was a stylized version of the Argentine Cordoba coin, rather than after the name of the city in Spain. The implication of the emblem was Hispanic, and this theme continued to be carried out with baroque trim on the interior, and using Ricardo Montalban, Mexican movie star, as the vehicles advertising spokesman.
Becoming one of Chrysler's very few genuine hits of the 1970s, the Cordoba was popular while the Chrysler Company itself teetered on bankruptcy. Production itself was over 150,000 annually though and the demand actually exceeded supply for its first couple of years. Nearly half of the Chrysler division production during this period was made up of Cordoba's.
Originally introduced in 1975 as an upscale personal luxury vehicle, the Chrysler Cordoba did well in the personal luxury market at the time that was large and growing. The Cordoba was a twin of the formalized Dodge Charger SE. Considered to be one of Chrysler's better efforts, the Cordoba was sleek, well proportioned and very graceful. Priced to compete with the Chevy Monte Carlo, the Ford Elite and the amazingly successful Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme..

Degrees Duration Int/Exh., 110 Degrees Lobe Separation,Open/Close @ .050” Cam Lift Int 43 /Exh 7, Gross Lift Int.Exh. .454 I looked up the part number for all that information. Crane cam. It says it is good for 1600 rpm to 5400 RPM and their description of it is "Good low end and mid range torque, good idle, daily usage, off road, highway towing, fuel efficiency plus performance, 2600-3000 cruise RPM, 8.75 to 10.0 compression ratio , but for me it sounds good, and makes decent power for cruising! Oh and it's got a new TH 350 that is hooked up to my column shift! Thought about bucket seats and a console shifter but then Kayleigh couldn't sit by me!
