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!!!
