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 Ramcharger Commercial Film - Ford Bronco & Chevy Blazer Comparison Film

1976 Plymouth Volare vs. Chevy Nova Promo Commercial
First year for the Volare, the replacement for the Plymouth Valiant introduction promo. This film was created for Chrysler Plymouth Dealer Salesmen to introduce them with the brand new from the ground up car. In the first model year for the Volare, 255,008 Volares were produced. Although this film portrays the car as quality built, it was plagued by poor build quality and a number of Recalls. One major recall was to replace front fenders which rusted on the tops of the part. As a teenager working in a Chrysler owned Dodge Dealer (factory owned store) we did hundreds of fender replacement for literally years. Our own family's 77 Dodge Diplomat received new fenders under the Aspen and Volare recall and warranty. Many will remember the TV commercials which featured Sergio Frankie Singing the song "Volare".

1978 Dodge Diplomat Promo Commercial Film Wink Martindale Voiceover
This film features the 78 Dodge Diplomat. Approximately 50,000 cars were manufactured in it's second full year. The 78 model year saw the introduction of the Wagon Version. This car was heavily based on the Dodge Aspen/Plymouth Volare platform. Note the similarities of the wagon model to the Aspen. Diplomats were only offered as passenger cars. By the 1982 Model year, Diplomats would be heavily promoted as Police Cars and Taxi cabs. The Diplomat was in production from 1977 thru 1989 with only minimal changes to the car which occurred in the 1980 model year. It ran from 80 thru 90 almost unchanged. As with other Dodge promo films from 78, this is narrated by Wink Martindale
