1979 Dodge Magnum XE-GT For Sale or Trade A rarely seen Mopar--the mid-sized Dodge Magnum lasted only two years before being replaced by the smaller Dodge Mirada. A sporty-looking upscale car, only 25,000 Magnums were made in 1979--and this car is just one of 1674 Magnums made with the upgraded XE-GT package. . The Magnum had a design for those who grew up in the muscle car era, but who were now family people. The Magnum had a muscle car look with comfort and room for a family. It sports hideaway headlights, and a sloping nose. Performance wise, the car had a front and rear sway bar, torsion bar suspension, and rear leaf springs. The torsion bar/leaf spring gave the car an edge over coil-spring cars like the Mustang/Camaro. The three speed Torqueflite automatic transmission had a floor mounted console shifter, and a lockup torque converter. The dash had full instrumentation, including a factory tach, adding to the muscle car look; but to add comfort, it had air conditioning, an electric antenna, leather seats, cruise control, and such. The 1979 Magnum with the upgraded GT option package added a front fender medallions, silver GT logos, wheel lips, color-keyed fender flares, heavy-duty 15-inch by 7-inch extra-wide GT Rallye wheels, charcoal astratone wheels painted with a bright center dome, lug nuts and deep-dish trim rings, GR60x15 white-letter Goodyear aramid tires and a leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel (a 2-spoke wheel if the tilt option was ordered at no extra cost). The GT's Firm Feel suspension included heavy-duty torsion bars, heavy-duty anti-sway bars front and rear, heavy-duty shock absorbers with special valving and heavy-duty rear springs. The special Firm-Feel power steering system and special engine-turned instrument rallye dash panel and crash pad applique included matching console trim with the console.
