    Nice condition.

    I would pass just because of the ATC II.

    I like these NYBs but this isn't the first time I am hearing stay away from the ATC II system. Did they offer manual AC controls for these cars? If so, pretty rare huh? Practically every formal I have seen for sale lately has ATC II. (super frustrating)

    Yes, manual offered in them too.

    About half of the cars are manual and the other half have ATC II.

    A lot of the coupe's have ATC II.

    Another problem with just 1978 Formal's is the wipers don't work because Mopar went with a different wiper cam that has inferior plastic that is almost guaranteed to fail. The only real repair is modifying it to the 74-77 small wiper cam with a little cutting and welding of donor parts.
    There are several threads on FCBO documenting the wiper cam problem and fix.

    If I was willing to cough up 12-14 grand, I would keep looking for the same thing but in sexier clothes.
    And w/o ATC II.

    Using B body parts is also an option.

    Hey @commando1!
    What are your thoughts on using the b-body parts to fix the wipers?

    Not sure how B-body parts can work
    Bob's method is tried and true and not hard to do.

    I reviewed Bob's method and agree that it is a solid fix, If you can weld and have access to those parts. I considered it for my repair. Knowing of the rumors concerning the B parts working, I decided to try it since I have those parts in my collection.

    I'm wondering- have you seen this? :
