About “1978 W72 4spd Black”

Very nice clean Black 1978 Trans AM. Found this about 8 miles from my house. It was on Craigslist all summer and no one bought it. So in September I drove up and brought it home to my house. The Motor was rebuilt about 10 years ago and maybe has 3,000 miles on it, but already has a Rod Knock. So I am going to save it and get it back on the road. Pulling out the entire driveline this winter and going through it. Someone put 4.11 gears in it. Not really a good idea. We will be putting this back to stock. And the wheels need to be Snowflakes for sure. So the AR's are coming off!!

 

Specs for “OLD CHRYSLERS NEVER DIE THEY JUST GO FASTER”

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..

I checked in my Note Book for the Specs and all I could find was "FUN"

This is one very nice TA ready for the Bandit Run! Every Mechanical System is New on this car. Engine, Trans, Cluthc, Rear Axle, Brakes and Cooling Systems are all new. Show Quality Paint and Mint Interior make this one you should consider if you are looking for a Turn Key TA. Black, Numbers Matching W72 400, 4spd - What more is there to think about. Drop me a note if you are interested. I live very close to a DAS shipping terminal, so shipping is quite reasonable as I can deliver the car to them and do a Terminal to Terminal shipment. I have done it before and it works great!
