I just bought an 81 diplomat wagon and i was wondering how rare they are? I have'nt seen too many.
I don't know how many were made, all I can say is I don't remember seeing a whole lot of them back when they were around, compared with 2 and 4 doors, especially the 4 door sedan.
Id love to see a picture of her!
It will be a few weeks before i pick it up. I just bought it but its 4 hours away from me. I will post pics when i get it.
I don’t know about total numbers of M-body wagons, but not that many were made. F-body wagons were a small fraction/percentage of the 2 or 4-door F’s that were made and the M-body was even a smaller fraction/percentage.
Can’t wait to see the pictures.
I think they only built M body wagons and 2 doors in 80 and 81.
I can vividly remember F-body wagons everywhere (they seemed to be very popular around here) back in the late '70's to mid '80's while M-body wagon not very often, or ever, if I have to be honest.
Yeah the only one i remember was my dad's 80 plymouth caravelle wagon. That one was very rare cause they only made them in canada.
If the ride is in good-enough shape consider yourself very lucky!
I have been looking for a decent one for a very long time now...the closest I've ever come to finding one was about 6 hrs away from me and when I did get to see it (we were actually passing by on a family vacation trip - my wife seriously doubted it was by "accident") the car was in a much worse shape than the asking price would indicate it should be.
That was about 4 yrs ago and had a $2500 asking price!
This one seems really solid and he said it was, has one dent in a quarter and needs a tranny but has one to go with it. Hasnt been on the road in ten years. I paid 1200
i've only even seen one irl. they're very rare in the states but seem to be more common in Mexico as the Dodge Dart.
The venerable F body wagon.
This tread reminded me of a thread I posted back in '16.
The perfect F wagon is finally coming of age
I have thought for years that the F body, particularly the wagons, were one of the most attractively styled cars of the 70's. This opinion also extends to the M body wagons, particulary the earliest ones from '78 & '79, although I believe the later ones from the early '80's are much more rare.
I still remember a former coworker who bought a new '78 Diplomat wagon, white with woodgrain and loaded with options. It was beautiful and I have never forgotten it, although I am sure that it is long gone by now.
So, '81 Dippy, I think you have made a great find and now have a very rare opportunity to own a car that likely will be the only one at any shows that you may take it to. I can't remember the last time that I saw an '81 wagon - but it has been decades! This one was for sale on FMF back in 2015. Beautiful!
1981 Dodge Diplomat wagon - $5200 (not mine)
Enjoy your new Diplomat and POST PICS!

Must be cornering lights. I admit, I have never seen those on an M before.
