Loading the ol' girl on the trailer after almost two years of sitting and bodywork. Needs the carb rebuilt... err...
The wheels are going to be changed out though. Still deciding between getting aluminum mopar rallyes or sticking to the chrome ones that used to be on it.
In the mean time, it will be running a set of painted mopar steel wheels (looks almost like Super Coupe wheels -- very tough!)
Since this video the car has been cleaned up quite a bit. All the exterior fender trim was removed because its cheap, fragile aluminum.
Keep posted though!

1980 Dodge Aspen R/T
Just got it home after sitting in a farm field for 10 years and a driveway
on stands for 6 years. Started right up (with new battery) then drove on 16
year old gas. I bet new engines wont do that.

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
Plymouth Volaré, aka Dodge Aspen, Automatic Transmission Offer (April 2, 1979)
The Dodge Aspen, produced from 1976 to 1980, was a compact car from
Chrysler Corporation's Dodge division; its Plymouth-branded counterpart was
the Volaré. It was launched as a two-door coupe, a four-door sedan, and a
unique-for-the-segment station wagon. It replaced the Dodge Dart. By the
end of their production run, the Aspen and Volare would be considered
Regular Car Reviews: 1980 Dodge Aspen
“Aspen and Volaré were introduced in 1975, but they should have been
delayed a full six months. The company was hungry for cash, and this time
Chrysler didn't honor the normal cycle of designing, testing, and building
an automobile. The customers who bought Aspens and Volarés in 1975 were
actually acting as Chrysler's development engineers. When these cars first
came out, they were still in the development phase.
“Looking back over the past twenty years or so, I can't think of any
cars that cased more disappointment among customers than the Aspen and the
Volaré. … But the Aspen and the Volaré simply weren't well-made. The
engines would stall when you stepped on the gas. The brakes would fail. The
hoods would fly open. Customers complained, and more than three and a half
million cars were brought back to the dealers for free repairs – free to
the customer, that is. Chrysler had to foot the bill.” ---Lee Iacocca,

1978 dodge Super Coupe Open Headers
This is my car/my dad's car. This video was made 2 years ago after we had
installed hooker competition headers on it. At the same time we put in 3"
or 2 1/2" side pipes on. Even though you can see the pipes in the video
they weren't attached to the headers yet. This is it with open headers
