$8,995

Vehicle Description

Yes, you really did just discover a survivor-grade 1980 Chrysler Cordoba. This fantastic hardtop is loaded with working options in time capsule condition. So when something this unique is also this affordable, you know there's a lot of attention already on it.


More than just having Ricardo Montalban as its pitchman, the Chrysler Cordoba's allure came from being a unique personal luxury machine. You can see it perfectly today on this example. Mocha Brown Metallic is a sophisticated color that has a deep shine that radiates when sunlight hits it. This is believed to be the factory application, and the root beer-like hue is becoming en vogue again today. This classy feeling is furtherer heightened by the cashmere roof that simulates a convertible appearance and also nicely coordinates with the pinstripes that run the length of the coupe. As a true classic American, there is plenty of brightwork on everything from the mirror-like bumpers, to the full length rub strips, to the trim that surrounds the cabriolet-style roof that complete the convertible-like appearance. And of course no premium car of the era would be complete without wire wheel covers.


You will be hard pressed to find another Mopar from this era with an interior so original. The cashmere-colored seats not only match the exterior roof nicely, but also their pillow-top construction gives you the kind of comfort Mr. Montalban always promised. You even have the choice of carrying five family and friends besides you, or folding down the middle front seat to complete the Cordoba's individual luxury image. The wood paneling on the doors, steering wheel, and dash show an amazing survivor quality that further heightens the premium atmosphere. As a true luxury ride, this Cordoba includes power windows, power locks, cruise control, and power seats. Not only is all of this in working order, but also so is the AM/FM stereo with 8-track. And while you're checking out the Kenny Rodgers cartridge that comes with this sale, don't forget to look at the other cool features in the center section like provisions for R134a air conditioning and a telephone. Yes, you even get those cool CB-based phones to really get people talking when they peek inside.


Under the hood is Chrysler's trusty 318 cubic-inch V8. 1980 was the era of the smaller Cordobas, and so to have the optional V8 as opposed to the standard six-cylinder is a big bonus. With this coupe's survivor appearance and exceptionally honest engine bay, we wouldn't be surprised if this was the original powerplant. Regardless of original or not, this period-correct presentation shows all signs of correct and regular maintenance. That's why it fires up easily, and the V8 pulls the Cordoba with true authority. But even with the peppy engine, it does not betray its luxury image. A supple ride, three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes all make this Chrysler coupe a terrific classic cruiser.


Complete with original manuals and even pictures from its history, this is a survivor with a story to tell. Are you ready to add the next chapter? Call today!!!
