RealRides of WNY #2388 - 1980 Volaré

There are a few things I like about this 1980 Plymouth Volaré wagon:

  • It has a factory-installed inline six with a floor-mounted three-speed manual transmission
  • It’s showing only about 72,000 km on the odometer
  • A rear window decal tells us that it “identifies as a Viper,” Lol

Until seeing this one at this past summer’s Mopar Classic Car Show at Rose City Chrysler in Welland, I never knew that Plymouth’s compacts still came standard with a three-on-the-floor. When I was a kid our next-door neighbor had a 1960 Valiant with this same set-up — three-on-the-floor with a front bench seat. Very awkward for the center front seat passenger, if I remember correctly!
