Real E58 1978 Dodge Diplomat Boat Tail Coupe

I’m downsizing my life. No better Dippy out there.

I’m the second owner of this spotless E58 (High Horsepower 360/4bbl) !978 Dodge Diplomat Coupe. I Think I’ve had over 15 years now.

When the last time you saw one?

You’ll never again see an original paint, original motor/transmission, and original Boat Tail in nicer condition. Not a spec of rust. Never in an accident. Always had best of care.

The AC didn’t work when I bought, so I fixed – converting to R134. It needs to have a can added every couple of months, so there must be an o-ring needing to be replaced,

The original “Plastic Fantastic” Thermoquad was warped, so I converted the lean burn to Mopar Performance E-Ignition, the boat anchor iron intake with an Edelbrock Perforner and the leaky carb with a 600cfm Edelbrock Performer. The car runs like a Raped Ape on Super.

I detailed and shampooed everything and car looks great in its 70s Aztec Gold. Driven regular, it has just turned 100K – but runs great – with nothing except very slow AC leak needing to be fixed. Engine has great compression and burns no oil. Transmission was Serviced and shifts chrisply.

I Love this car, but need the cash, and am downsizing my life by selling everything I don’t need. I have over $10K in Making sure everything works and that I could hop in and drive to Alaska if I wanted. A true fly in and drive home car.

$7900 wired or $7500 in Dead Presidents FIRM. I do have a few things I might consider trading for, and they’re listed in the Wanted Section of oldhippie dot com – as are all other cars I’m selling.
