Bubbly Sapporo: 1982 Dodge Challenger

The 1978 through 1983 Dodge Challenger (and Plymouth Sapporo) was an interesting piece of automotive history. It is part of the legendary Diamond Star Motors (DSM) import program that brought us beauties like the Eagle Talon and Mitsubishi Eclipse GSR, but the Challenger was a rear-wheel-drive 2.6 liter inline-4 powered Mitsubishi Galant Lambda. Chrysler didn’t sell many when new, and few survive, and today’s example looks better than it should. Find this 1982 Dodge Challenger offered for $8,500 in Simi Valley, CA via mooseface marketllama.

Seller’s description
82 Dodge Challenger, excellent condition in and out. Runs and drives great and never any rust or rot (west coast car since new) probably the cleanest one in existence. Original owner towed it behind his RV from the time it was new till the late 90’s (hence 233k on the odometer) the car feels like a 50k mile car and there is no wear in the original interior. Never hit, comes with original window sticker and invoice . This has the 4 wheel disc package, which included the aluminum wheels. This is a jump in and drive car, have driven it to many shows throughout SoCal. If you search 1982 Challenger on the internet, this car shows up in multiple articles over the years. Reducing my collection so it has to go. Always garaged. 8500.00….WILL NOT REPLY TO “IS THIS AVAILABLE “
