Front and rear plates don't match. I wonder if the car in the commercial is still in that meadow...the meadow of sexy spinning 70's hair!

It's like they took the diplomat's light and turn signals and flipped them upside down. not an appealing way to make it look different from the dodge. other than that it looks pretty cool with the raised white letter tires and the subtle haunch aft of the B pillar. another one I will nominate for best of 2014.

Looks damn good with those lettered tires.

At least the owner is treating this right. The plates don't match because Washington DOL only issues one "Collector Vehicle" plate for the rear, which is kind of strange considering Washington requires front plates.

Why does this vinyl-roofed Mopar Malasie Madness Mobile have a trailer hitch? It is after all, a "Luxury" car.

Excuse me, I meant it was a personal deluxe luxury brougham sport coupe.

Oh God.I had a 1977 Dodge Diplomat sedan.The headlight assemblies were right side-up compared with the LeBaron's "Family Truckster" front end.The car itself was comfortable, and I think that it had that "rich Corinthian leather" seating in it, but the problem I had was the Electronic Lean Burn 318 V8.It was extremely problematic.It also had the worst gas mileage I had ever seen.Now I know that there was a 360 engine available in these cars, but the "lean burn" engines were the worst form of emission control.It literally CHOKED these engines!
Not too long ago, someone was selling a 1977 or 78 Diplomat wagon with a 440 crate motor, and all kinds of nice upgrades.I would be willing to bet that the 440 in that wagon got better gas mileage than a "lean burn" 318 V8!
