    That's a beauty for sure. First two things I'd do; bring the front end up slightly with a simple torsion bar adjustment, and replace the ugly radiator cap with a stock one.

    Would love to have that car.

    Need to get @Justwondering to see this car. It has a 360 4-bll (not HP) but no center console.

    The only other thing I see wonky, is someone painted the original wheels green.

    This one has an older center cap (1971?) - but center caps are easy to change.

    Now that is a beauty.
    I agree about the green rims ...
    But I would have to lose the rectangular pin striping on the sides...

    Chronometer .... now I like having a chronometer.
    Square headlights --- dang.

    Why can't all the sellers do such a good job of cleaning the car before they take pictures?

    Magnum ... so what is a magnum... looks like I need to do some research.

    It is the Dodge version of the Cordoba. The body lines are different on the doors (I think the body lines on fenders and quarters are the same - but don't quote me on that).
    The '78-79 Cordoba also had rectangular headlights - but stacked.

    The header panel and hood lines are different, and the side marker lamp/corning lamp, um, just doesn't look as good as the '76-77 Cordoba's do.

    Its why I like the round headlights better than the stacked square ones.
    Beautiful cars, but I only get one more until I thin out these Willys pickups.

    I am a big fan of the '78-79 Magnums. easily the best looking cars of their time. the covered, swing up headlights are icing on the cake, and very unique, although I understand that if they are yellowed, missing, or broken, they are impossible to find.

    i am also a big fan of the round head lights Cordobas, but not of the stacked square headlight
    Cordobas. The stacked Headlight Cordobas seem less distinctive, more of a "me too" design. Same is true of the Monte Carlos with the stacked headlights. Both cars seem to look fat and bloated, overly heavy, with the stacked square headights.

    That car is perfect the way it is, the pinstriping and the wheels are nice touches
