Give ‘Em The Superbird: 1981 Chrysler Cordoba

Hope you are enjoying your 4th of July, and if you aren’t, well…this next feature should put a smile on your face because it is out of this world.  The Chrysler Cordoba was downsized for the 1980 model year and stuck on the J-Body platform shared with the Dodge Mirada, so you can’t even use the logic that the Cordoba shared the B-platform with the Superbird…but why should that stop anyone from building such a thing.  Find this 1981 Chrysler Cordoba Superbird offered for $4,800 in Steubenville, OH via craigslist.  Tip from Scot C.

I guess we will continue with the theme that all things patriotic should be loud, preposterous, and insane…or just another weekday on DT.   Seriously, I have to tip my hat to the madman who conceived of this thing but you’ve got to wonder what he/she was on thinking.

This exact car was featured on the web back in 2012, but without the faded paint and rusted rear sections on Bangshift and Brian Lohnes wrote If the car is still powered by a Lean Burn 318 or bone stock, 150hp,
1970s suck bag 360ci engine our opinion will start to skew more toward
the fail side of the equation, but if there is a 440 under the hood and
it can melt tires, we’d roll in this thing with an upturned middle
finger to anyone who wanted to laugh. 
Sorry Brian, but with the 90 horsepower slant-6 sitting under the hood, you’ll be wishing for the power and torque of a 318…at least the nose looks aerodynamic.

See another oddly interesting custom?
