It's the only car I have ever loved!
My daddy tried to put a 340 in it and blew the crank shaft, so we are thinking about putting a 360 in it with an automatic tranny. But otherwise it's all original and in excellent condition.
I have a Dodge Aspen RT 77, and it's in great shape.
However I want to get it re-chromed, upholstered, and put in a 360 with automatic transmission, cos I am taking it over, and I want it to drive to my own comfort level and satisfaction.
As for the muscle or not muscle, I would have to say it drives and handles like good, solid American muscle, but I don't really care what others call it. I know it is my daddy's car and it holds nothing but happy memories from my childhood.
I do know one thing. We never broke down or got stranded in it. The only time any work has been needed is when daddy busted something (like the spoilers that came on it originally), or he wanted to make some changes as a hobby; never did this car let us down.
My opinion is that, although I have limited experience, I am in the car repair business, and I wouldn't trade the RT for anything ever. It's more reliable than a BMW.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
