I recently came across a 1978 Plymouth Volare (no other parts to the name, just straight Volare as far as I know right now) for sale. While it wouldn't typically have caught my attention and held it, the condition and price have me seriously considering this vehicle. I'm going to look at it Thursday. It's a 2 door coupe, all original, the body and interior are in great shape according to the owner. Vehicle has been garaged. The title is clear. Price is $750 obo. The original slant 6 motor that was in it had a rod through the block, so it was taken out & is included along with a second /6 the owner never had put in because his mechanic told him the second motor needed rebuilt and he didn't have the funds to do it. That's why he's giving up the car. We will probably sell the motors and put a bigger one in it if we buy. The grill has a hole in it, and according to some posts here, these can be pricey. There's one included but owner don't think its the right year. He said the lights & signals all work, fuel tank seems good, lines look sound. There's little to no rust reported, one ding that's an easy fix. He said when he purchased the car he backed it up a bit, then returned it to its place, hearing the knocking under the hood. That is all he drove it, but said the transmission ran smoothly then. I'd really want to purchase louvers for the side windows and a rear spoiler, which sounds like may need to be off a donor car. How hard are these to find? How much money might we be talking about? Would non-plymouth accessories be ok? Are '78 Aspen parts interchangable with a '78 Volare? Will other '78 Volare models like Road Runner & Super Coupe parts fit? I know I've posed a lot of questions for one post, the bottom line is, I don't want my investment to exceed the potential value of the finished car and I don't want to have to abandon it due to hard to find parts and accessories. However, if this is a promising project that my husband and I can enjoy without breaking the bank, we'd love to undertake it. So, what is the opinion of the people?? PLEASE weigh in on whatever inquiries you can. Thanks so much for your feedback. I will post again when I've looked at the car, until then, keep the info coming!
