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

last model year for a Monojet carburetor, 2-piece grille, and round
headlights. "Chevette: It's got a lot going for you!"

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
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

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

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!
