This Dodge Monaco is giving me some serious 70’s flashbacks. It feels like the entire Brady family is ready to jump in for a Grand Canyon excursion and we know that means Jan is going to be a pain in the ass the whole trip! Well, a quick internet search shows that the Brady family were a Mopar wagon family so my suspicions are confirmed. Flashbacks aside this is one nice Monaco. With only 2,500 of these made, this is a rare one and it looks to be in great shape. Located in Colorado and listed on Ebay the bidding was at $7,995 with the reserve met at the time of this posting.
With a 383 V8, flowmaster type exhaust and Magnum chrome wheels this Coronet 500 is more of a muscle wagon than a typical family hauler but why not have both? Throw in third row seating to bring the passenger capacity to nine and Dad can easily haul the team around with a little bit of performance to wow the kiddies. Professionally repainted from an original California car, this Coronet is listed on Craigslist in Santan, Arizona with an asking price of $24,900.
1964 was sadly the last year of hardtop station wagons being produced in the U.S. with Chrysler being the last car maker to grace us with these pillarless beauties. There were less than 2,000 Dodge Custom 880 wagons built and only a handful that could possibly remain, so this Dodge wagon is a pretty rare sight. With an asking price of $10,750, you can find this big Dodge on Craigslist in Berthoud, Colorado.

If you had to name the colors that most represent the 70′s, gold and avocado green would be at the top of everyone’s list. Cars in deeper greens were everywhere and this ‘Harvest Gold’ Dodge Coronet represents the golden hues of the 70′s superbly. A one owner car for its first 38 years, this 53,000 mile lovingly maintained wagon can be found on Craigslist near Tacoma, Washington for $6,850.

Here’s a Dodge Dart that looks like a nice driver as is or a great candidate for an easy restoration. From the limited pictures posted the body looks to be very straight and solid. Period correct Dodge Rallye wheels have been added and the vintage rear wind deflectors are always a nice touch. The seller states that the automatic transmission slips when initially warming up but performs fine after that. The indestructible 225 slant six powers this Dart. We don’t get to see any interior pictures but the sellers states that a new interior is in order, an easy job as seat covers and door panels are readily available. Listed on Craigslist in Milpitas, California the seller is asking $3,000 as is or $3,500 with a newly built transmission.
Low mileage wagons are tough to find. After all most of them were used to haul families on long vacations and generally were subject to plenty of wear and tear so it’s always nice to see an intact low mileage survivor like this Dodge Custom 880. The Custom 880 was the middle range full size Dodge for 1965 with the Monaco being the top of the line offering and the Polara being the entry level selection. The seller of this wagon lists the mileage at 20,500 but doesn’t offer any documentation or a history in his short description but the overall condition of the car definitely support that this is a low mileage survivor. This Dodge can be found on Ebay and is located in South Woodstock, Connecticut.
