Missing Mid Sized Mopar: 1983 Dodge Mirada

The Mirada was Dodge’s version of the (Ricardo Montalban approved) Chrysler Cordoba and Imperial — albeit the next generation with a more bland set of headlights and the leather was not longer made from the hides of soft Corinthians. However, Dodge only used the Mirada name for a few years (1980-1983) so most people wouldn’t recognize the nameplate and probably think this is an Aspen or Diplomat or Spirit or any of the other names Dodge used on the midsized dogs they sold through the 80s.

1983 Dodge Mirada – The Last and Rarest Year of Production for these very unique and distinctive looking cars!
There were only 5,597 Dodge Mirada’s made for the final production model year of 1983.
The name Dodge gave this Beautifully designed car is very fitting because “Mirada” is a slang Spanish term meaning “Good looking girl”!
This particular Mirada is very rare to be a Black car with Red bucket seat interior, console shifted automatic and a Power Sunroof!
It is believed to have been a Chrysler Executive lease car where by the Executive gets to order the car exactly the way they want it and drive it for up to 6 months or a certain amount of mileage before they are required to turn the car in.
I’ve owned this car for almost 20 years now and it was a regular driver for me for the first couple of years after I bought it. It had developed a lifter tick and I parked it thinking I would fix it soon but that never happened.
That was about 18 years ago and it’s been stored inside ever since.
I really love this car and I never planned on letting go of it but I’m older now and have too many cars taking my attention from this terrific car.
The car is being offered as is and is not currently in running condition.
