I had a 75 Cordoba at one time and it was the best all around "family car" we have owned. The smogged 400 CI with 4 barrel was ok after removing smog stuff and gutting the converter. The torsion bar suspension in the front was better than any other large car suspension and just plain fun to drive. And MOPAR did a great job of sound proofing these cars: they were quieter than any Caddy or Continental I ever drove or rode in. That front end would work great on the "Dude"
