Chassis no. A9UF744259. Sable Tan Sunfire Metallic over black vinyl. 360/175hp, 3-speed Torqueflite automatic, fender flares, air dam, hood scoop, rear spoiler, later Pioneer stereo, air conditioning

Evaluation: Clean body, interior, and trunk. Showing 61,712 believable miles and appears well-maintained with only light general age.

Bottom Line: There isn’t much that’s “super” about the Aspen Super Coupe’s 175-hp engine and 3-speed TorqueFlite. But it certainly looks the part with its graphics, flares, air dam, blacked out hood, and hood scoop, while heavy-duty suspension and a rear sway bar at least make things more interesting when the road gets twisty.

With some sources claiming just 351 built, the Aspen Super Coupe is one rare piece of Malaise Era kitsch. This one brought a healthy price but it’s still arguably a good value. A Burt Reynolds-spec Trans Am in this condition would bring thousands more even though the Dodge is way rarer and not any slower.

    Happy to see you were able to get your hands on a ( S.C. ) I ordered mine mid November 77. Took 6.5 months to receive delivery. Have had years of fun with. Also 186000 miles clocked. Gets more looks than most.
    Be careful when being passed , have found other drivers trying to get a look have a tendency to drift toward you.
    Other than that. HAVE. FUN.
