Interesting. Compared to the US models, it’s a Dodge but has the Plymouth grill with Dodge letters on the hood, plus it has 15” tries and wheels. interesting how they changed things up for other markets.

Very nice that it has a good grill. They are very hard to find.

Welcome! Nice looking car. Were these cars built in Europe? Should have an interesting history.

Read a write up recently by an American living in Germany. He bought a Chrysler diesel powered minivan built in Austria. Cheap. He soon found out the vehicle wouldn't pass the mechanical inspections required for German registration without LOTS of work. He eventually got the vehicle properly registered.

Nice F-body Dart! Makes me think I want a VolAspen again. I had a 1976 Aspen from near-new...and it looked it all the time I had it...until 1998. With no restrictions on emissions controls for a car that old, a 318 could be made to really sing, and run! Mine was retrofitted with key parts from the M-body police suspension, which transformed it.

My sister and brother in law bought a 1978 Volare Wagon 'well used', in good mechanical shape, only substantial rust on the lower panels marred the appearance - still good looking from 100 ft. I was surprised at how well the 225 2bbl propelled the wagon. Recall the Chronometer, stereo radio and cold a/c.

Looked very similar to the one in this stock image....
