The Chrysler stylists had a romance of things Spanish for awhile in the '70's.
I remember the Aztec gold finish, Inca-art patterns of the interior & gold coin emblems.

Just about every time I take my 76 charger out people think its a Cordoba. Kinda wish my car had the rich Corinthian leather.
With Charger you got not so rich vinyl That's what the bucket seats were in my 1976 Charger SE.

That first generation Cordoba was nice looking, good running and very reliable. I know several people that had them, including 2 that came over to Chysler from other American manufacturers to buy them. After that first generation, their quality began to go downhill :cry: .

The biggest problem that took a lot of them off the road was rust after some time in the harsher climates. The leaf springs would pop through the trunk floor. It wasn't a terrible repair if you knew a good welder.

My grandparents put over 300,000 miles on a white one. I do remember one winter around 1986ish or so my father and grandfather pulled the transmission out and rebuilt it because it lost reverse. That car seemed like it wanted to last forever. It also had a very distinct smell inside, I guess from the old leather seats.

My two favorite cars (despite Valant being in my user name) were my 1977 Cordoba (400-4 lean burn car) and my 1979 Cordoba (E58 360-4 lean burn car).
The 1977 was my favorite year looks wise, but the 360-4 motor made the 1979 a faster, better handling, and more efficient car.
I did have a couple of the next style including a very nice 1981 318 Cordoba.
i'd hate to list all the Cordobas and siblings (Chargers, Magnums, Miradas) I've had. I think it was 14, though one was only a parts car.

In 1979, they had a Cordoba-based 300 with the 360, TQ & dual exhaust.
The 1980-1983 Cordoba LS was probably meant to be a 300 (available with a slant-6).
Then Dodge/Ram got the cross-hair grille.
