Originally intended to be the Plymouth Sebring for the 1975 lineup, Chrysler had a change of heart and positioned the Cordoba as its premier personal luxury car. Riding on a slightly smaller frame with a 115-inch wheelbase, it offered a more economical option without compromising on style or performance.

What truly sets Cordoba apart is its iconic marketing campaign, spearheaded by the legendary actor Ricardo Montalbán. His endorsement of the “rich Corinthian leather” elevated the Cordoba to legendary status, cementing its place in automotive history.

Under the hood lies a powerful 5.9-liter (360 cubic-inch) 4-BBL V8 engine, coupled with a three-speed A727 TorqueFlite automatic transmission, delivering a smooth and exhilarating driving experience. Features like power steering, power brakes, and air conditioning ensure a comfortable journey every time you hit the road.

Step inside the cabin, and you’re greeted by a luxurious sanctuary dressed entirely in black. From the Corinthian leather seats to the woodgrain dash accents, every detail exudes opulence and refinement. The bucket seats and center console add a sporty touch, while modern conveniences like cruise control make every drive a pleasure.

This Cordoba boasts a modest restyling for the 1978 model year, featuring the then-popular rectangular stacked headlights that accentuate its sleek profile. Paired with full-size wheel covers and white stripe tires, it exudes a timeless charm that is sure to turn heads wherever it goes.

Don’t miss your chance to own a piece of automotive history as this exquisite 1978 Chrysler Cordoba goes under the hammer at Mecum Glendale. With no reserve, it’s an opportunity not to be missed for collectors and enthusiasts alike. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, March 6th, 2024, and be prepared to bid on a true classic that epitomizes luxury, style, and timeless beauty.
