Saw one I didn't know they made.
« on: September 02, 2016, 20:52:42 »

at the risk of being labeled 'out of the loop'.  I saw a Mopar yeaterday that I didn't know was made.

1983 Cordoba.  it was gassing up at Kwik Trip yesterday as I pulled in to fill up wifey's car in anticipation of the labor day weekend price hikes.

Cream color and looked and sounded if fine shape, my guess it was a slant.  Older Gent from Iowa was the owner, guy obviously treasured it as it was clean inside and out.  I shoulda got out the phone and took a pic but it didn't come to me to do so till he was gone. 

I thought the doba name died with those lead sleds of the mid 70's

Am I correct in thinking that it was on the R body platform?

The Cordoba and Mirada were the same platform (J I think) and I think they were made from 80-83

Yep J body. Same suspension design as the M body.  Dash looked like an R body, though.
