Plymouth made 247 of these Volares and Dodge built 145 Aspins with this package before they stopped. Why? Petty quit Mopar and Mopar said crap!
A 360 with a whopping 175 hp! Stand back!!

175 hp, must be why they needed such a rake angle on the spolier, that is one bad deal, no wonder he walked C O M!

Considering what else was being sold new in 1978 this really ain't all that bad. A very sad era for American made vehicles.

Boy does that bring back memories, my first full time job was working for my sister in her body shop in 77. She had a detail shop as well and did all the work for a huge local Dodge dealer, I saw them all! Dodge did a bunch of those sort of cars and trucks.

Lil Red Express...



They even had a Dodge Dart or Aspen or something that had a fake Carson top and lake pipes with white walls and chrome reversed wheels! I can't for the life of me remember the name so I can't find a photo on line.

I think Lee Iacoca was a genius. Chrysler was in trouble when he took over and what did he do? Simple, take the Volarie or Aspen, put in a fluffy interior, a 1/2 vinyl roof and a little more bling and what do you call it? The 5th Avenue was born. How about the Chrysler New Yorker, same treatment on a K-Car frame. Pure genius and Chrysler is still here in large part because of it.

*quietly* I liked the Lil Red Express when I was a kid. They even had a black one I think it was "Midnight Express" But dang it thats not the first 'Muscle Truck' (LRE was faster than corvettes back then)
There was a truck in the 60s (D100 based I'd guess) called (ready?) "THE DUDE" and the pitch-man for THE DUDE was not some city-boy race car driver or athlete it was.....the incomparable DON KNOTTS!
My net-nanny at work isn't letting me out to find pictures though
