Description for Dodge 1980


You are viewingmy 1980 Dodge Mirada. Born with a 318-V8 (5.2L) engine, his Mirada's racing powertrain (including driveshaft) has been removed so this vehicle is now a "roller". The rear end is an 8 3/4 "open" unit.

Several important points.

  • This Mirada has a Cordoba LS snout and Cordoba rear tail section.
  • There is an Art Morrison-brand ladder bar setup along with cross-member tube and coil-over spring kit. There is a huge torsion bar installed from its drag racing use.
  • The six-point roll cage is welded in. There is a fuel cell and battery mounted in the trunk. There is a brake line-lock setup with the button on the Hurst-brand ProMatic ratchet shifter, nd a remote-located oil filter underhood.
  • The excess rubber it burned off when it was racing is still accumulated behind the rear wheels inside the wheel well.. Its not unsightly..its just still there a decade later as tribute to the old days..
  • There is NO power-steering but there still are power brakes. The radio does not function and there is no radio antenna mast. The windshield wiper control switch is not mounted on the instrument panel (wipers work though).
  • There front seats are clearly racing seats, ummit-brand covers with four-point racing seat belts. There is NO rear seat at all. The headliner consists only of the backing board (no sagging cloth) so it looks and is "unfinished"
  • BE SURE you understand any local requirements for vehicles modified as this one is (e.g., missions testing, oise, tc).
  • The wheels are 15x8 and 15x10 American Racing-brand modular aluminum wheels (some minor imperfections) with 245/60-15 and 295/50-15 Goodrich Radial T/A with excellent tread.

    I had it professionally refinished about 10 years ago..a decent but not show-worthy job. There is a chipped area near the driver side headlight. There isnoframe, nderbody, loor pan, r trunk pan rust (or repairs of rust) whatsover.

    The external bright, ubber and painted trim is in driver quality condition and consistent with the age of the vehicle (so there are assorted scratches, ings, racks and other age-related patina etc.). The nerf strip on front fascia is missing. All the glass is good. The original plated-aluminum rear bumper has some peeling on the underside.

    The dash is in good shape showing normal wear butwithoutmajor defects other than the holes drilled for the tachometer. The door panels are in good shape and the upper door rails have the common breakage on passenger side. The lights and turn signals all work fine.

    This 1980 Dodge Mirada is structurally well-built to accept a very stout powertrain and you already has an 8 3/4 rear end setup to help complete many possible performance upgrades if desired.
