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:
