    Hey guys this 77 Cordoba came up for sale locally and I'm debating on buying it or not it's kinda ugly but a Mopar non the less and turn key with a 400 bb in it I could go many ways with it do these things have any want ? Parts ect I have a few requests for 400 motors is this thing worth buying and parting / keeping/ fixing a bit and flipping it? Any money to be made ?
    Any one truly interested in it is it worth Shipping???? 00R0R_l3WGpTMxyax_600x450.jpg 00U0U_4Tc2NflMLTg_600x450.jpg 00N0N_es1Nkx8ToYj_600x450.jpg 00O0O_dWSDz3HLtVy_600x450.jpg 00y0y_cW8IiFRfO5V_600x450.jpg

        The floor shift helps a lot. Not sure about flipping. I love them but, not sure if the masses do.

            Not to me, I have zero interest except the 400. Doubt there's much to be made at all.

                  I wouldn't buy that heap with your money!


                  It's priced about $1,175.00 too high.

                    2 trains of thought here..
                    first,if you wanted a mopar beater that runs and drives,that really isnt bad.
                    they actually had a charger model that was identical in 76?

                    second, if you needed a disc brake setup - and the bb stuff.
                    the console,and seats look useable/reuseable as well.
                    id hit him at 700 and settle maybe for 8-900 cash.

                    ive been holding off on one of those forever,the guy wants 600 bucks for it.
                    the one i was looking at was even worse,it was a 318 car.
                    theres not much appeal for these cars unless you own one.

                    question for the Pros,is that brake setup able to be used on our older b bodies?
                    for example,a 66 coronet w drum brakes.

                    I've got the later B Body disc breaks on mine but I'm not sure what year but believe they're 72 or later? There's lots of information available for the conversions with a little searching.

                        My perspective of being a Cordoba owner.....if you are buying THAT particular car to fix and restore, unless it is your ultimate car ever made, is certainly not worth it. A little fixing and use it as a driver/winter beater, then yes , for a lower price. I don't think there is a lot on that car to part out and make any kind of profit, break even at best. I only look for NOS parts for mine and that is to stash them away for the future if needed. I would be interested in the interior door panels IF they were mint to near mint....for the same reason, to stash.

                        well a '69 road runner it isn't. I had one years ago, very comfortable ride, 360 ran great. Big Block console shift are a plus. I doubt highly there are any new part for them. I'd definitely want to see it in the flesh to check out the rust. That dash pad would be a hard to find, and probably not cheap. But they it's a Big Block RWD mopar, and not a bad looking cars. Offer less and see what happens.

                          Does the console shifter have the slapstick feature?

                          I like them but the market is much more limited even than 73/74.

                          $500 in seats

                          $500 in 400/727 in "can hear run" condition

                          $100 maybe in floor shift (even though it's missing the "slap" part of the stick)

                          $100 in brakes (but are probably 15" wheels only)

                          $100 in axle maybe

                          $50 maybe in BB torsion bars to 73 and up guys

                          few hunnies in body and int parts but you'll have to sit on them for quite a while.

                              400 engine and it didn't come with the 9.25 rear end? That's too bad. Have you driven it?
