Rare 1979 Dodge Magnum GT For Sale

GT option package that added front fender medallions, silver GT logos, wheel lips, color-keyed fender flares, heavy-duty 15-inch by 7-inch extra-wide GT Rallye wheels, charcoal astratone wheels painted with a bright center dome, lug nuts and deep-dish trim rings, GR60x15 white-letter Goodyear aramid tires and a leather-wrapped 3-spoke steering wheel (a 2-spoke wheel if the tilt option was ordered at no extra cost). The GT’s Firm Feel suspension included heavy-duty torsion bars, heavy-duty anti-sway bars front and rear, heavy-duty shock absorbers with special valving and heavy-duty rear springs. The special Firm-Feel power steering system and special engine-turned instrument Rallye dash panel and crash pad applique included matching console trim with the console. There were only 1674 Magnum GTs produced in 1979

This is a Uber-rare 195 hp/280 lb-ft E58 360 4-bbl Police motor car with a high performance non-lockup 727 Torqueflite transmission and 9.25″ rear axle. This was the most powerful engine you could get in a Dodge car in 1979, and was the engine used in the 79 Little Red Express truck.

I’ve owned this car for over 15 years and taken very good care of it. It has less than 61,000 miles on it. I replaced the 85mph speedometer at 60,400 miles with a NOS Police Certified 140mph speedometer – and put less than 500 miles on the car since. I have the original speedo in a box somewhere in the shed.

I replaced the leaky and restrictive Thermoquad and cast iron intake with a Edelbrock RPM intake and a Edelbrock Performer 650CFM Performer with e/choke and AC idle options. I replaced the troublesome air cleaner mounted ignition with a Mopar Performance electronic ignition conversion kit. The car is both quicker and faster than stock — but I should still have the old parts in a box in my shed.

This car is rust-free, always garaged, and never been farther north than Atlanta, Ga.

In addition to the GT Package – Options Include:

  • E58 360ci – 4-BBL with dual exhaust, 727 Transmission and 9.25″ Rear
  • Leather seats
  • Factory Installed AC
  • Cruise control
  • Power Windows
  • Floor shifter with console
  • Tilt Steering
  • Intermittent Wipers

This is maybe the best equip and nicest 79 (far more rare than the 1978 GT and 20 more hp in the 1978 E58) GT available. The headlight doors are clear, the leather is great, carpet great, and the dash is great and without any cracking. Drives and rides like new, but faster; and brakes quick and straight. The car was just completely gone completely through and anything needing to be addressed was. Fly in and drive back to Alaska with confidence.

I’m asking $15,000 cash (Interbank Wired) for this car. Delivery can be arrange. eMail me at davetheoldhippie@gmail.com if interested. Please no Nigerian Princes or offers to send me a cashier’s check for way too much money and for me to refund the difference. I’m not taking Paypal or Western Union either. Basically — if you’re a scammer — move on as I don’t fall for any of it and will accept a bank wire or dead Presidents only.

I have 31 cars, trucks and motorcycles and I’m wanting to thin the herd by 2/3s so I can move into a smaller shop and make my life a little more simple. Other cars listed on this site ( http://www.daveschultz.com/category/daves-cars-for-sale/ ) include:

1979 Dodge Magnum GT For Sale

Maybe the Nicest Original Magnum GT left. Taken out of 20 year storage and completely gone through.

Magnum GTs are Very Rare. I’ve owned 9 Magnums, have run MoparStyle.com for 20 years, and MagnumGT.com for for 21 years, and this is the ONLY GT I’ve ever seen in the flesh. What makes this car even more rare is that if you look at the Vin, the fifth digit is a L. That’s the E58 360ci/4BBL High Performance Cop Motor. That’s the most powerful motor you could get in a Mopar car in 1979. I bought this car because of it’s extreme rarity.

The paint is original, the chrome is original, and the drive_train is original. The original leather seats have been re-dyed in the original color. The car is rust-free, only living in Georgia and Texas. There are no cracks in the dash or console, rare for a late 70s car. The “GT” Wheel Flare are in Excellent original condition.

The Last Of The Mopar B-Bodies

It is loaded with:

  • 360/4BBL High Performance E58
  • 727 Transmission
  • 9.25 Suregrip
  • Leather Seats
  • Tilt Steering
  • Leather Covered Steering Wheel
  • Wipers with Intermittent
  • Cruise Control
  • Air Conditioning
  • Power Windows

The original cast Iron intake and warped Thermoquad was replaced with an Edelbrock Performer Aluminum Intake and Edelbrock 650cfm carb. The problematic air cleaner mounted ignition module was replaced with a Mopar Performance Electronic Ignition box and distributor – so the car has a few more ponies than Mother Mopar had originally given him. Yes, this GT is a gentleman. The XE is a lady.

This Magnum GT Runs, Drives, Steers, Brakes and Rides great. It is a very comfortable car to drive. While I’m not big on driving a 40-year-old car cross country – I’d probably chance it in this car. You should be able to Fly in and drive home – but bring your AAA card just in case. I just sold an 1981 Imperial with almost an Identical background, and the buyer flew in from North Carolina and took a shuttle to my shop. He spent the next couple of weeks visiting old friends in Mississippi, Alabama, Florida and Georgia. He called a few weeks later telling me what a great time he had and that the car performed flawlessly, except for a flat in Louisiana.

60,000 Original Miles

I was able to buy a Very Rare NOS Police Certified 140MPH (just try to find one under $3000) to replace the 1979 Mandated 85MPH Speedometer.



Weeks have been spent going through this car to get it ready to deliver decades of service to its next owner. I love this car, but the reason I’m selling it is I’m now in my mid-60s and have a collection of 31 cars. I’m starting to downsize my life and most all of the toys have to go. If you like the Magnum GTs, you will never have another chance to own a better one. My first brand new car was a 1978 Magnum XE. They were very controversial back then, because of the Cord Style front end and clear flip-up headlight covers. To me, it was the only real bright spot in the Dark Disco Ages. Well that and I married my wife in 1979.

I want $15,000 for the car, and feel it’s worth more to a GT-Fanatic, and so it should sell quick. If you are interested, email or Text me. I will hold the car off the market for 14 days with a $1000 non- refundable deposit, if you need that time to make financial arrangements. I will store the car inside for up to 45 days with my Classis Car Insurance still in force, if completely paid for.

I will not be selling to a Nigerian Princes, or for a Cashier’s Check for more than the amount and send you the balance. I don’t need any brokers calling me telling me that can sell it on consignment. Cash talks and bullshit walks. I’m old, but not stupid! I will accept either dead Presidents or an Interbank Wire Transfer.

3000 Mile 1999 Viper GTS For Sale

As a young adult with dreams of great financial success, I read Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich”. One of the big points of the book is to have a huge goal, which is unattainable by most, and to reward yourself hugely for obtaining it. You then put a visual reminder of the reward somewhere that you are constantly reminded of the goal and your reward.

In 1996 I set another such a goal, which was the second big goal I’d set and promised myself a big reward for hitting. In June 1998, I achieved that goal, and my reward had been a new Viper GTS. I Immediately went to the Dodge dealer and ordered a black with black interior with a stripe delete. Because of a strike causing a shortage of the front body work of the car, it took 13 months before I picked the car up.

I have put less than 4000 miles on the car since. The car looks and drives like brand new. 1999 was by far the very best year of the Viper. This car holds a lot of sentimental value to me. However, I’m now in my mid sixties, and in a mode of reducing the things I just don’t need. I have 31 cars, trucks and motorcycles; and I just don’t need near that many – so everything is for sale, some priced to move faster than others. This is the car I least want to sell, but I will for the right price. That price is $60K FIRM.

Below is a gallery of photos just taken of the car. It is in Flawless condition. Click the small photos to view the full size version. Some browsers will require a right-click to open in a new browser.

If you are interested in purchasing this car, call or text me at 713-899-7704. Don’t bother offering less or a trade, as I’m not interested.

Drag Pak #42 For Sale

This 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak is as picked up from the factory. In 2009, “Connected Racers” applied to be able to buy the 100 Drag Paks built for 2009 to compete in NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Indexes. I got #42, which is a grey interior 6.1 set up for stick shift.

Everytime one of these pops up for sale, a lot of ignorance winds up being posted. These cars are not streetable, they have a part number instead of a VIN, and when you pick up from the factory — you still have to complete the car to race in the Class/Index you want.

Below are a couple of links that might save those who don’t know what the car is a Hell of a lot of embarrassment when they start proclaiming their ignorance in posts.

“Many of you have seen Leah Pritchett’s Dodge Challenger Drag Pak, decked out with Demon themed graphics. However, many people think that particular car was from the latest batch of 2015 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak models. However, the car she runs is actually the very first 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak ever built.

Factory Supercar Champ Leah Pritchett with my dog Buster & I Last year

Nicknamed “El Bandito” the car started life as a 2009 Dodge Challenger Drag Pak equipped with the 6.1-liter HEMI package. In fact, there were three engine choices for the 2009 Drag Pak edition. 6.1-liter or 5.7-liter HEMI or 5.9-liter Magnum® Wedge—as well as manual or automatic transmission choices.”

I bought this car as an investment in 2009, and put into a bubble for 25 years. 10 years later my goals have changed and I’m in the process of selling off my car collection. I offer For Sale Drag Pac 42 for the exact $42,000 that I have in it — and will throw in the bubble. Click the below thumbnails to see the full size version.

$42,000

Money in the bank. Keep in bubble for another 10 years.
