If you grew up in the 70's then you no doubt remember the now famous commercials featuring the handsome and articulate Spanish actor Ricardo Montalbán introducing the new Chrysler Cordoba and the thickly-cushioned luxury seats "available in rich Corinthian leather". The Chrysler Cordoba was introduced by Chrysler for the 1975 model year as an upscale personal luxury car, competing with the Oldsmobile Cutlass, Buick Regal, and Mercury Cougar. Interiors were more luxurious than the Dodge Charger SE and much more than the top-line standard intermediates (Plymouth Fury, Dodge Coronet) Optionally available were bucket seats upholstered in the “rich Corinthian leather” with a center armrest and cushion, a center console with floor shifter and storage compartment. The dashboard and door panels featured simulated wood trim and metal stampings. But what is “Corinthian Leather”? Is this luxury leather so rich that it is of biblical proportions? Afterall, the Roman Empire city of Corinth, the capitol of Achaia, was famous for its intellectual and material prosperity, so perhaps. However, when Montalbán was asked by David Letterman during an interview on the show Late Night with David Letterman what the term depicted, the actor cheerfully admitted that the term meant nothing, he simply had ad-libbed the line while filming the commercial!

The luxurious 1979 Chrysler Cordoba featured here lives up to intended upscale design and features the new for 1979 "300" option, featuring an all-white exterior with red and blue trim, "Chrysler 300"-style grille and a four-barrel 360 V-8 engine. The Chrysler 300 option was advertised and marketed as its own model that year. This car has been under the same ownership for 23 years and comes with the original build sheet and a maintenance file full of receipts. The finish on this car appears to be original and while there are a few chips and blemishes throughout the car indicative of a car that has been driven and enjoyed, it is well maintained and presents well. There are no indications of any collision or rust repair on the body. Bumper chrome and stainless trim has been well maintained and still shines with a rich luster. The underbody of the car is unrestored and has been undercoated and there is no apparent rust in the floorboards or chassis. It appears well maintained with newer shocks and mufflers.

Under the hood the correct 360cid V8 backed by a 727 Torqueflite Automatic transmission that transfers the power back to the 3.42:1 Sure Grip rear-end. The engine bay is original and unrestored with many of its assembly and factory markings still present. Options include, power steering, power brakes, air conditioning, and cruise control.

The interior of the car is original, unrestored but well maintained and preserved. The cabin is well optioned with bucket seats and floor mounted shifter and tilt steering column and of course “the rich Corinthian leather”. The dash features full factory gauges including oil pressure, volts, temperature and tachometer and the factory AM/FM Stereo. Supporting the cars originality is the glovebox still filled with the factory owner's manuals. Included in the sale are also the factory service manuals.

This is a great car to drive and of course show. This car has been recognized at several regional Mopar Meets and has been a consistent class award winner. Call If Interested or Email with questions
