Hi, hope this is the right forum?::.. I'm from Norway and I have found a 1981 Dodge Aspen with the 3,7 Slanted Six, at a pretty fair price. Does anyone know anything in particular that i should check before I make the buy? Any experiences? Does anyone know how much fuel it consumes?


Thanks

Arne

as far as i know, they discontinued the Aspen and Volare line in 1980. You probably have an '80. You can check easily by looking at your headlights, if they're rectangle then u have an '80 like me. If they're circlular, then u have a '76-'79.

whoops, sorry i didn't read about the part that u haven't bought it yet. 80's are cool, but a slant six, :frown: look for a 318 to swap in it, like my wagon. Mine came with a 318 4bbl :biggrin:

Hmm... Is this a bullet proof way to identify its production year? Its a sedan... I could send you a pic or two if you'd like?

sure send me a pic. Yeah, im almost positive they didn't make a 1981 aspen. My car's sticker says
Manufacture Date: 11/79
but its the 1980 Model and design.
check the sticker if u didn't already.
yeah here's a link to a pic of my car...

If it was manufactured outside of North America, it could be an 81. Some of the body styles get discontinued here but continued elsewhere, like South America. Any idea where it was made ?
