    I agree. The condition looks above average. Do you homework on the car including price and prepare to act fast. If its meant for you it will happen.

    like he said mdh157 ... she's hidin' in plain sight boss.

    I can see an aficionado of these last B body Doba's going tilt for this well-equipped specimen .. known ownership history, big block, deep dishes, hole in roof, console and all reasonably priced too.

    good luck with it if you do check it out. :)

    Makes me wish I kept mine.
    I really like these cars and would buy it if I was in the market.

    That car sure does it for me. Full tilt loaded with a big block and a great color combo. I like the wheels with the period correct wider whitewall. Hope it all falls into place for you.

    For comparison purposes only, not mine. Different year, and fewer options, but a decent looking mostly unmolested Cordoba.

    On craigslist in Seattle. $9,700.00 asking price.

    Price seems ambitious to me.

    Those Cordobas were just really good cars - solid, good handling, and reliable was my experience. I ordered a lab car similar to that one in 1979, in my case a Magnum, and it was the best lab car I ever ordered. Our group in the engineering department for central engineering at Chrysler drove it more than any other lab car we ever had in the 11 years I was there. I hope you get it.

    I don't know if you really need to see this one in person before making a deal. They rot out in two spots: rockers in front of the rear wheels and bottom of trunk lid. If those are clean, and I expect that they are, I'd make it yours. This isn't some muscle car where there's a big risk of it being phonied up and cobbled together for a quick flip.
