I bought this car new in June of 1979 from Kennedy Motors, a Chrysler-Plymouth dealer in Watertown, Wis. It has about 106k miles on it. Never winter driven, always cherished. The Sticker shows a price of $6406. I bought it at the end of the model year, ended up paying $6064 for it. The salesman threw off $658.00 - a 10% discount! The saleman wrote it up that way, and the owner of the dealership wasn't happy about it, he knew I wanted the car pretty bad. It had been on the lot since January of '79. I drove 16 miles every weekend from when it first showed up, to see if it was still there. I was a Senior in High School, working nights and weekends all through High School, saving my money so MAYBE I could buy a nice car when I graduated. My parents made me understand that all the payments for the car, insurance, upkeep,etc., was all up to me, and if I missed a payment, it would be gone. I didn't disappoint them, or myself. It has a 318 4bbl, 2:40 gears, heavy duty suspension, and Lean Burn.
On the highway, if I keep it under 70, so the secondaries don't open up, I can get 20 mpg all day long. A a long trip, I even managed to get 23 mpg out of it a couple of times.
The car is just as i bought it, with a few paint touch ups due to stone chips.
I'm also including a photo of my nephew's '79, brown metallic with t-tops that we restored.
When he bought it, he was told it was a Georgia car originally. It had a 360 2bbl, and a/c.
Sound or look familiar to anyone?
