This garage-kept 1988 Dodge Aries LE wagon has been in the same family since new and senior-driven for the last 27 years. It comes finished in Ice Blue over a gray cloth and vinyl interior and features a recently replaced front windshield, a luggage rack, front and rear bench seating, an AM/FM radio, and a new air conditioning compressor. Power is provided by a fuel-injected 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that sends its output to the road through a three-speed automatic transmission and the front wheels. Available now, this K-car wagon comes with parts receipts, maintenance records, its original order sheet and window sticker, a clean CARFAX report, and a clear Georgia title in the seller's name.
As the original order sheet indicates, the car was sold on November 24, 1987 through the Marietta Dodge dealership in Marietta, Georgia. The window sticker shows it came in Ice Blue (PB1) and equipped with the Wagon Convenience Package (AFW), which added a luggage rack and a washer and wiper for the rear glass. Additional features include a recently replaced windshield, body-color bumpers, black trim around the perimeter of the car, and 14-inch wheels set inside of 185/70/R14 Kelly Edge A/S tires that are reportedly five years old and have less than 2,000 miles on them.
There are minor dings and small areas of rust on the body that were sealed with a preventive coating as well as some oxidized black trim around the headlights and windows. The photo carousel to the right shows patina on the wheels and scratches in the front and rear bumpers.
Inside, this K-car is furnished with patterned gray cloth and vinyl front and flip-down rear bench seats, matching door panels, and gray carpeting. Woodgrain trim is located on the front door panels and dashboard. Equipment includes manual crank windows, a fold-down front armrest, an AM/FM radio, a digital clock, and air conditioning connected to a new compressor and dryer. The seller reports that both mirrors are functional, but that the one on the passenger side was replaced with a new old stock part that sometimes needs a push to be put into the desired position.
Instrumentation comes in the form of an 85-mph speedometer and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, and battery voltage. Per the seller, the five-digit odometer shows 16,831 miles, but the car has 116,831 miles on it. Pictures in the photo carousel show stains in the front center armrest, parts of the floor carpeting, and the carpeting on the back of the rear seat.
