Once again, I’m daydreaming of a classic family hauler. I just can’t bring myself to drive an old car through the Ohio winter, and I don’t have the space or time to maintain another antique. That doesn’t make it any easier to ignore this $3000 family truckster. The four-barrel 383 will have no problem hauling the groceries, and the grille and taillight designs are delightfully evil looking. The fact that it’s fleet-car white with what appear to be dog dishes on steel wheels only sweetens the pot. Woodgrain would add to the family car vibe, but I prefer the cleaner lines without it. These old Mopars handle pretty well despite their girth, and they’re cooler than the more common GM wagons of this era. I hope somebody buys this and uses it to take their kids to soccer practice, 9 MPG be damned.
