    I'm surprised at how many of these seem to have been built with the slant six. The slant is a great engine, but it seems odd to not have at least the 318 V8 in a car of this size. I would assume that the 318 was standard, and that the slant was optional for credit but who knows?

    That car has been repainted they say. When? It sure looks rough for something that has been repainted. I thought the pictures looked like original paint. Maybe it needs a really good wash, and wax?

    Price seems really low for the car and mileage. What are they not telling us?

    I too think the price sounds low but if you look at the NADA value for this car it shows $2475 as the high retail price, so maybe he used NADA as his guide.

    OY I also think it's odd that so many of the J-body cars were fitted with the /6. May have had something to do with CAFE regs. I've seen lots of Miradas with the slant and a few Cordoba LS cars but I haven't seen any of the "regular" Cordoba's with the slant. I debated about buying a really clean LS t-top car and ultimately didn't buy it because it was a slant. Not a knock against the /6, it's just not what I was looking for in a car that weighed close to 2 tons. cordoba-ls-t-top-car-very-rare-tuff-wheel-body-inter-good-5-spoke-wheels-5.jpg cordoba-ls-t-top-car-very-rare-tuff-wheel-body-inter-good-5-spoke-wheels-11.jpg

    I've had enough J bodies for a lifetime,even though its a /6 I'd drive it..
    Way better than that other one for $8k and now down to $6200 and still needs to drop about $3500 to be anywhere on earth..

    According to that Nada guide the Cordoba NON LS is worth more /6 or V8...tops $2650...LS $2400...
    So with the low production #s you'd think there would be more value or they equate it to sh*tty Chrysler Quality of the 80s???

    Nada values seem to become a bit random on older cars

    I guess they judge it off original msrp? So a 2017 Srt Challenger is $50k so in 25 years a used one will be $15K...
    I'M old remember buying cars for $188 back in the 80s...
