This 1977 Dodge Aspen is an amazing find. It's a full-blue package with a survivor-grade style. And it's impressively loaded with features like a power seat and a V8 under the hood. It even has an interesting tale to go along with all its stock style!
Part of this car's previous history that we read includes a tale of this being parked for about 40 years, and that the low odometer may even represent the full mileage (it's all intriguing but unverified.) So where most wagons of this era .....
would have been subjected to over 30 years of the family appliance, this one has survived and thrived. And the Regatta Blue paint supports this feeling where it has aged and matured but it still looks quite clean and complete. So it shows all the right signs of being the factory application that is rapidly approaching its half-century anniversary. The chrome bumpers are bright, the trim is complete, the luggage rack looks good, the glass is clear, and the factory hubcaps are all present. We just don't see cars like this anymore.
The sea of blue continues inside, and so does the impressive level of preservation. The driver's seat has a clean and complete style like a 1970s time capsule. A tilt wheel and a fold-down armrest make sure this wagon knows how to get long-haul comfortable. This even has a premium front power seat! And the wood-like trim really makes this feel like it earns the classic-style Special Edition badging. Part of this preservation means the right vintage details, like the working interior lights (including the glovebox) and the factory AM/FM radio is still there for a display. This even appears to be a factory A/C wagon (a newer compressor was installed but the system will need servicing.) The back seat is cushy, and it can be folded flat for utility. So it's perfect for loading up with supplies and spending the day showing it off at the car show. You could probably even rent this time capsule out to movie productions.
Under the hood is the correct 318 cubic-inch V8. It's a rather stock presentation with just some good maintenance to resurrect this wagon from its decades-long slumber. So while there are plenty of great performance parts for the mighty Mopar LA engine, we also just like how this is a pleasant cruiser from day one. It fires up readily, idles smoothly, and runs with a steadfastness of a daily driver. So this Dodge remains a terrific family wagon. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make journeys near and far quite easy.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records and the owner's manual. This is family-style nostalgia at its finest. So if you want a well-priced true classic wagon distinction, call today!
