1977 Chrysler Cordoba
1977 Chrysler Cordoba
De Plaane Boz, De Plane!! Cue the Ottmar Liebert guitar music and have Ricardo Montalban on his spot! Action!! Córdoba also spelled Cordova in English, is a city in Andalusia, southern Spain, and the capital of the province of Córdoba.
Who can forget that wonderful “Spanich” rrrroll of the tongue by actor Rrricardo Montelban and his infamous Chrysler Cordoba commercials! And now for consignment that famous car made famous by the famous actor and his use of the words “Corinthian Leather”. Our first Cordoba! to grace our “pasillos sagrados”. This car also has just 11,306 original miles and it shows!
1977 brought us the large midsize car meant to save on gas yet still provide comfort for the family to be transported in comfort. So they came up with the Cordoba with its leading edge round headlights and smaller round running turn signal lights flanking the larger headlight. A central chrome encased vertical ribbed grille in V form is in on, and a nice corresponding bumper below. Formal Black Sunfire Metallic (and it has fairly large flakes) adorns this car with a few faults, but overall nicety has been retained. Shiny trimmings for the wheel wells and rockers and a tan vinyl “landau top” complete with opera window in on the rear third of the roof. A trunk with room for all the luggage and then some is under the large long rear deck. On either side are rectangle taillights and below a shiny chrome bumper to cradle the taillights and frame the bottom of the trunk. Polished 15-inch Chrysler road wheels are on all 4 corners and wrapped in 215/75-R15's all around.
Wait for it…..Wait for it….Corrrrrinthian Leather (swoon and a faint to the couch!) wrapped in light gold Corinthian Leather and vinyl adorn the interior surfaces of this classic. Front high back buttoned and tufted buckets sit in front of the original dash setup and a similar buttoned and tufted rear bench is stretching across the back from cathedral window to cathedral window. 1977 adornments like an 8-track player, cruise control, power windows, and power locks. All this in a sea of gold carpeting, and a smooth one-piece headliner also in gold. Certainly, all that glitters it is.! Hay oro en ellos colinas!!
Looking it just drove off the showroom floor this all clean and buttoned up 400ci V8 with its single 4-barrel carb atop and A727 Torqueflite transmission on back, and a 9.75 inch 3.21 gear rear axle is ripe for the picking. Very nicely detailed and preserved. “In a word…seemply beeeeuteeful!
Some surface rust on the usual suspects like the suspension and driveshaft, but otherwise looking just great. Torsion bar suspension for the front, and leaf springs for the rear along with power disc brakes on front and power drums for the back and a nice solid exhaust, take the wheel and drive to the coast Ricardo!
A quick starter and inside was luxurious in the tufted and buttoned Corinthian Leather..I just love saying that..Corinthian Leather…but i digress to the test track where she lumbered around turns with that cushy 1977 ride, nice smooth acceleration, and bias free panic stopping. I noticed the drivers window is off track, and the wipers are currently in op.
Always garaged, 11K original miles, plenty of receipts to back everything up, we have a unique classic that will be your with a roll of the tongue and a roll of cash. Gracias Ricardo Montelban.
