1978 Dodge Other

1978 Dodge Aspen

Rolling Body Drag Car. No Motor, No Trans, No Electronics.

Only the factory gauges remain. The previous owner had stripped a lot of the car. I have some of the spare parts that will go with the car. The gas tank has been removed and I installed a 12 gallon Summit Fuel Cell.

The car does have some rust spots. There is a rust spot in the passenger side floor pan – I pop riveted sheet metal over it and sealed it. The frame on the car is excellent. The passenger seat has not been installed. The interior is pretty nice for an older car.

I used this for a drag car and put over $700 in wheels and tires alone. I have taken the car to a 1/8th mile track a couple of times and have made 14 passes. The best time so far is 8.59 at 82.35 MPH. (I have time slips if you want to see!)The car went very straight and stopped perfectly. This car is nowhere near as fast as it could be, I wouldn’t be afraid if it ran 100 MPH in the 1/8th.

The car is non-streetable, but could be made street legal because it has working headlights and taillights. I have a clear Indiana title in my name. I have more pictures if someone wants to see them.

THE MOTOR AND TRANSMISSION IS STILL IN THE CAR AND I WILL BE REMOVING THEM ONCE THE CAR IS SOLD.

This is a good project for someone who wants to get into racing cheap. I would consider this a great LS conversion candidate. The reason I am selling this car is because I recently purchased a 1968 Dodge Dart that I have always wanted. If there is no interest in this car, I might pull the 8 3/4 rear, disc brakes and haul it to the scrap yard.
