1979 Dodge Magnum XE Additional Info:

Style, rarity, and affordability all combine on this 1979 Dodge Magnum XE. So as you look over everything from the V8 power to the A/C interior, you'll discover a cool coupe that knows how to stand out. This was the first series that ever used Magnum model name, and this does a great job of conveying the premium and forceful image the title carries. After all, it has the long hood and crisp design that instantly announced this... was a personal coupe made to own the road. Plus, those retractable translucent headlight covers were a finishing touch that looked like they were pure style. And while these were a signature piece, they're true purpose was to help cheat the wind for NASCAR races – just like the Dodge Charger Daytona a decade prior. And just like those special Chargers, these first-gen Magnums have rarity on their side, too, with production lasting only two model years. More than just sporty, there's also refined style seen in details like the opera windows and the way the grille subtly continues under the headlights and around the side. It's all finished in the factory-correct shade of Nightwatch Blue. Inside the sea of blue continues. This car has averaged around 1,500 miles annually, and this is directly reflected in the fresh look of the interior. It has a terrific vintage style and so you'll be quite happy that there's plenty of room for family and friends. But even when you're just going solo, this Magnum is terrific. You have the individual comfort of a fold-down armrest to give you bucket-like comfort. And there's plenty of premium wood-like trim, including on the factory dual-spoke steering wheel. The controls are built around the driver, and the means an easy reach to great features like cruise control, the factory AM/FM stereo, and controls for the updated R134a air conditioning. In a coupe this original so far, it's great to see such an honest and correct engine bay. In fact, this 318 cubic-inch V8 shows all the right signs of being the original powerplant. And while you'll love the vintage details, this also shows signs of the correct maintenance, including the belts and hoses. These V8s are great for torque, which gets you off the line with confidence. And this one runs smooth like a well-engineered Mopar should. Plus, you have all the right easy cruising features with the Torqueflite A727 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes w/discs up front. The sale comes with nice paperwork, including the original dealer invoice, title documentation, and the owner's manual. Plus, there are some handy spare components that are included, too. It all adds up to a great classic coupe offered at a terrific price. Call today!!!
