1979 Dodge Magnum XE-GT - $1,795

When was the last time you saw one? Odometer shows 83,240 miles--which is believed to be actual. Powered by 360 V8 motor--a newer engine was installed in the car about 15 years ago. The engine runs but will need a tuneup to be a reliable driver. The car has not been driven much in the past few years. For example, there are some items that are currently inoperable: heater, wipers, tach, horn (our Motorland Service Center can assist with any or all repairs). There is an ignition key only (not for doors currently). Underneath the car is sound and structurally solid. It needs subframe rubber mounts. There has been some previous floor patch work performed on the car--it's sufficient for now. There is a rust hole on the passenger side cowl. The 235/70/R15 radial tires have dry rot and need to be replaced. The interior tan bucket seats and rear seats are in good condition overall--the drivers seat does have some of the usual wear. The door panels need some minor repair to the lower carpet strips but are otherwise in very good condition. The dash shows some of the usual cracking, as does the drivers side arm rest. There is currently no carpet, sill plates or interior light lenses in the car. As you can see in the photos, the glove box door and box are not currently installed but come with the car. Some history about the Magnum: 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.
