Unlikely Giugiaro: 1991 Dodge Monaco

The Eagle Premier was a full-sized executive sedan built by AMC during its unholy alliance with Renault starting in the 1988 model year. Exterior styling came from Giorgetto Giugiaro at Italdesign and the interior was designed by GM/Packard/Chrysler legend Dick Teague. The resulting cosmetic design wasn’t bad at all compared to the garbage coming out of the big three at the time and motoring press at the time wrote nice things about it, but the decision to use French mechanical components obliterated any possibility of commercial success. In 1990 Dodge introduced a “badge engineered” version called the Monaco, but neither version sold well and the Audi-like longitudinal front-engine front-wheel-drive oddball faded into the history books. But somehow this one survived with only 13k miles on the odometer and remarkably clean bandaid beige paint. Find this 1991 Dodge Monaco offered for $4,700 in Riegelsville, PA via craigslist.
