1977 Dodge Diplomat Introduction Film Commercial vs. Chevy Caprice & Cutlas Supreme
This is an introduction film from 1977 for the 1977 Dodge Diplomat which was launched in the Winter/Spring of 1977. This was the upper level entry into the mid-sized class of cars. It could compete with the larger compacts as well as the New GM Full Sized Cars. My family owned one almost identical to the vehicle featured in this film. Dark Brown with a Copper Roof. They shared the same plateform as the Dodge Aspen. The roof and glass and doors were interchangable with differences only in trim pieces. The sister car for the Chrysler Plymouth Dealers was the Chrysler LeBaron. These cars with some restyling changes in 1980 would stay into production until the 1989 model year. It proved in the 1980's to be a very sought after Police Car. This particular film compares the Diplomat to the new sized GM full sized cars and old style GM Midsized Car, the Chevy Caprice and Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme





1978 Chevrolet Chevette - Dealership Film
1978 was the third model year for this small car and a promotional film was shown in some Chevrolet dealerships to prospective buyers. This was the last model year for a Monojet carburetor, 2-piece grille, and round headlights. "Chevette: It's got a lot going for you!"





1978 Dodge Omni vs VW Rabbit Golf & Toyota & Datsun Chi Chi Rodrigeuz
This Dodge Promo film was made in the Fall of 1977 for the January 1978 Introduction of the Dodge Omni. Chrysler Corporation introduced it's first world car'. This car was in production from Fall of 77 till Spring of 89. They were sold as Dodge Omni, Plymouth Horizon, Chrysler Horizon in the UK and the Simca Talbot Horizon in France. 165,000 cars were sold in the USA in it's first year of production. The US version used a VW engine block with Chrysler Parts attached which is kind of ironic considering that they are comparing the car to the VW Rabbit (Golf) in this film. Chi Chi Rodriguez does the intro for this film. Wink Martindale does the voice over for this. These films were produced by the Roy Ross Advertising agency for Chrysler. They were filmed in Palm Springs. Apologies for the bad sound quality after about 3 minutes, it's a film that's over 30 years old.





78 Dodge Diplomat vs Ford Granada Ghia & Olds CutlassTom Kite featured
78 model year. This basic car stayed in production until 1989. Diplomats were used extensively as Police Cars and Taxi Cabs after 1981 when the Aspen and St Regis were removed from the Dodge Line Up. It proved to be a very successful car for Dodge. Diplomats were based off the Dodge Aspen. They share much in styling. Even the doors of the car were the same. Diplomats phased out the stylish two door and wagon in the early eighties. Wink Martindale is the voice over for this video.

1978 Dodge Aspen Commercial - R/T and Super Coupe
Before everyone starts hating on the Aspen, please know, yes, the 1976 launch was a disaster and that the Plymouth Volare and Dodge Aspen were at the time one of the most recalled cars, but that was 1976. This is a 1978 and by then, the bugs were all worked out and these proved to be good solid performers.

1977 Dodge Colt Hemi Comparison Ford Pinto Chevy Vega Chevette Datsun B210 Promo
This is a 1977 Dodge Promotional film which could have been viewed in any of the Dodge Dealers across America that had the Dodge Demo Screen. The Dodge Colt was a range of cars built by Mistubishi. This was in 1977, one full year before the Dodge Omni was introduced. This was all Dodge and Chrysler had for the subcompact Market. These were also sold in Canada and Puerto Rico as Plymouths. This is a film that compares the Colt and it's features to the Vega, Pinto, Chevette and Datsun B210.





Test Drive the 1976 Chrysler Newport Custom!
Hi! Cold War Motors picked up this nice old Chrysler a couple of years ago to save it from the demolition derby. Its got a 400 cubic inch V8, four barrel, and single Exhaust. This car drives really nice and smooth, and isn't as wallowy as some of the earlier models. It features air conditioning, tilt / telescoping wheel, cruise control, fender top lights, green tinted glass, 8 track player, fender skirts, green vinyl top, etc. In other words, a real 70's dreamboat! I really enjoy taking this car out for a night out with a load of friends, just cruising in comfort... hard to believe these cars are almost totally extinct now. I rebuilt the rear quarter panels due to rust, but managed to save a lot of the original paint. The top, engine, and interior are all in original condition. Hope you enjoy a few minutes of checking out this great old boat!
