1978 Chrysler Cordoba. This is a Rust Free California car with only 50,000 miles. It was purchased new in Los Gatos, California and spent all of its life out there until a few years back when it came to Omaha. As you can see from the photographs and the codes listed below, this car is loaded, Power windows, Power locks, Power seat, working 8-Track, Tilt Wheel, Cruise Control, Rear Defroster, Cast Aluminum Road Wheels, Chronometer, ‘Corinthian Leather interior’ and more. Only about 4.7% of total Cordoba production had a Power Sunroof, which this one does and it works great. The car also has the numbers matching 360 V-8 with a 4 bbl and NO Lean-Burn. Recently we have replaced the passenger power window motor and a/c clutch and flushed the transmission and rear end. The TorqueFlite transmission shifts smoothly and the brakes are good and stop straight. Original paperwork and manuals are with the car and it was even featured on an Automotive calendar last year.
