Assuming that 360 fires back up without too much work or expense, this could be the type of project you simply get in and drive, and worry about small details like body graphics later on or never! Magnum may not have sold well, but it gained a number of hard core admirers. The , a two-door subcompact based on the Arrow, rode on an extended wheelbase 99 vs 92 inches , with thet same height and another couple of inches of width 65. Changes included bucket seats with thinner backs to increase passenger space, new colors, door-mounted courtesy lights, and recessed armrests. The automatic-transmission line pressure for reverse was modulated to a variable 150 to 260 pounds per square inch for 1978 from a constant 260 psi, for greater reliability.
The Gran Fury was no longer available, but the B-body continued, with eight models two door Fury and Fury Sport hardtops, four-door Salon, four-door sedan and Sport Wagon, and Suburban four-door wagon. The seats look decent as do the dash and carpets. Dodge trucks When the fuel crisis hit, Dodge was not prepared, but they went to work fitting pickups with a Mitsubishi diesel; that model appeared around 1978, the same year the D-150 and D-250 were introduced. Both used a digital vacuum-flourexcent display and a six-bar signal strength display. The Magnum had front and rear sway bars and standard 15 inch wheels.
The main difference between Charger and Cordoba was the performance suspension. The Arrow could be purchased with full instrumentation, disc brakes, a center console, and a number of other options; the interior was every bit as fancy as considerably more expensive American intermediates. A lower beltline and moving the doors forward on the 127 inch wheelbase vans allowed for bigger windows; the new roof could have vents or a sunroof, and a new instrument panel with a spring-loaded swing-up glove compartment door and easier to reach fuse block were added. The Cordoba was popular and well-made, helping to erase some of the bad feeling from the first-year Aspen-Volare, and the Aspen and Volare themselves were now made with a high level of quality. The 360 and 400-cubic-inch V-8 engines gained dual concentric throttle return springs in addition to a torsion throttle spring. The encapsulating material was elastomeric thermoplastic polyester, a hard, durable elastomeric. Still standard was the electronic voltage regulator.
The microphone could be stored in the trunk. The Fury, though popular as squad cars, turned in a relatively meager 70,000 sales spread across Fury, Sport, Salon, Suburban, and Sport Suburban models. Monaco Brougham was the ritzy version. The interior space was not quite as differentiated as the overall length. Other news for 1978 were the Landau and T-Bar roofs, more color schemes, powerful and fast Kit Cars, and the Spectrum trim interior for the Road Runner option package; the biggest news might really have been the Super Six option, which provided greater economy than the standard slant six along with considerably more responsiveness, by using a two-barrel Carter carb and matched intake manifold. The LeBaron shared a basic body and wheelbase with Volare and , but used a considerably more restrained exterior.
Engines As Detroit struggled to come to grips with emissions rules without spending money on fuel injection, power levels sank, to the point where the 170 and 198 were no longer viable and the lone remaining in-line six was the 225. All 1978 Chrysler V-8 and 6-cylinder engines had a probe adapter for timing the ignition magnetically, but traditional timing marks were retained. Making the increasingly popular slant six much peppier and enjoyable was a two-barrel carburetion system known as the Super Six, which provided both better acceleration and better gas mileage. Cornering of the Fury was surprisingly good for such a big car. I am keeping it as a survivor and the stickers look awesome how they are.
Electronically controlled intermittent wipers appeared as an option. All the V8s came with , the revolutionary computer-controlled spark control system that was an idea ahead of its time. Offcenter, forward mounting of the axle helps to minimize acceleration squat. Even a simple LeBaron with the smallest V8 318 only got 15 city, 22-25 highway with the manual transmission making the difference on the highway.

Engineered for speed, the Little Red Truck was built on the short-wheelbase 115 inch Utiline-style half-ton D150 with a 6,050 pound gross vehicle weight, but the real attraction was the high performance 360 V8 breathing through a four-barrel carburetor. T-bar roof and power sunroof were optional. Our discount auto body parts store offers high quality Dodge D100 exterior body panels for your car or truck. California cars suffered absurdly bad mileage due to tacked-on emission controls. I bought this Little Red one year ago.
Thanks to the noise reduction and ride improvement of 1976 and the 1977-78 refreshes, the B-vans were now much more civilized, and quickly became the institutional van of choice, seeing duty in hotels, churches, smaller schools, and other venues.
