Aspen 1979

Title Status --
Exterior Color Cream
Interior Color Tan


This 1979 Dodge Aspen Wagon is the grocery-getter that you always wished would have been released from the Mopar stable. It has a great interpretation of an R/T style and the enhanced V8 power to back it up. Plus, it's a truly useful cruiser with plenty of space and cold-blowing A/C.

This one really hits all the high notes of Mopar muscle. The white with gold accents is borrowed from the Chrysler 300 H. The blackout grill has a touch of Hemi Challenger intimidation. The twin hood scoops look like they were borrowed from the meanest Plymouth Dusters around. And the badging is pure Dodge cool both R/T designations and a Mr. Norm's decal on the tailgate. Plus, there are even some great custom muscle car touches for its own sense of power. It includes American Racing competition-style Torq Thrust wheels, tinted windows, and a rear spoiler behind the luggage rack. Add in chrome bumpers and plenty of pinstriping, and you have a very custom cruiser with plenty of attitude.

The tan interior is a harmonizing tone with the exterior's white and gold. This has a clean and complete look on the upholstery, headliner, and door panels. The carpeting even extends to the rear cargo area for a terrific tailgater. There's room for everyone, and the factory air conditioning now blows cold with modern R134a refrigerant. You get the impression this one loves to be a true classic, right down to the working dome light and AM radio. But this also was built to be a true driver. After all, when was the last time you saw a wagon with front bucket seats? Plus, there's the sports steering wheel, auxiliary oil pressure readout, and the center console borrowed from an Aspen R/T coupe.

The engine bay is where this one earns its sporty style. You have Dodge's hardy 318 cubic-inch V8 as a base. It has been enhanced with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Weiand aluminum intake, and shorty headers. It's also supported by good pieces like an MSD 6AL ignition, Mopar finned valve covers, and an aluminum radiator. This warms up to be a strong runner, and overall, it makes for an enticing V8 cruiser. After all, the stout but smooth A727 Torqueflite three-speed automatic transmission joins power steering, power brakes, front discs, and wide BF Goodrich T/As for a solid anytime driving package.

The value price on this custom setup leaves room in your budget if you want to update the paint, replace the dash under the pad, or any other improvement/personalization. But those are the kind of cosmetic things that often take away from the driver-ready feel... and that's where this wagon currently excels. It's powerful, versatile, unique, and a ton of driving fun. That's why you want to take it home. Call today!!!
