V8 and Air Conditioning: 1972 Dodge Coronet Wagon

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

Here it is wagon fans, the extremely clean, reasonably priced, air conditioning equipped wagon that you have been looking for. There is even a V8 under the hood of this low mileage wagon! All of these great features in this classic wagon platform can be yours for $6,500 or best offer! Take a look at this Dodge here on craigslist out of Baltimore, Maryland. We have Matt Williams to thank for this squeaky clean wagon survivor. Thanks Matt!

When I said extremely clean, that was no exaggeration. Appearing as almost show room new, this wagon has a fantastic condition interior that shows only minimal signs of use after covering only 25,000 miles. The factory radio is in place, and as a whole the seller reports that the wagon is completely functional. The door jambs are very clean, but there is a little surface rust on one of the hinges as you can see from the above photo. No sweat, just clean it and touch it up.

The back seat area is equally as nice as the front, as if there was never a rambunctious child jumping around. Again the door jambs are clean enough to eat off of, and best of all there is a ton of room for friends and family. One issue I see it that the passenger front head rest has some dark spots that I would guess to be leather cracking?  The owner has added a couple of drink holders to the back to offer even more luxury and comfort while totting around your friends. V8 equipped, this wagon is propelled by a 318 V8 which isn’t exactly the most exciting engine choice, but it is a reliable and fuel friendly one. Yes, this wagon is equipped with air conditioning, which I assume, and hope, is functional. The only down sides to this Dodge is the seller mentions that there is rust developing along the bottom edge of the fenders. This rust isn’t exactly visible from the images, and as a whole this wagon is a very clean survivor. With just 25,000 miles on the clock, this Mopar wagon seems like a reasonable buy for $6,500. Would you jump on this air conditioned classic?

    It’s vinyl. Dodge did not upholster its wagons leather.

      Perhaps it’s upholstered in the hide of a Naga?

      Sellers, especially Craigslist sellers seem to quite often assume that vinyl is leather. Many were born after vinyl became quite rare in modern cars. Although once it was a step up from cloth, and an extra cost option.

    slap a set of cop spec wheels on this one along with dual exhaust for a nifty Daily Driver!

      That look is a bit played out. A set of 15’s wheels that are designed to take the stock hub caps from a 14″ wheel would complete the sleeper look.

      It’s a nice looking car. It would make a great swapmeet or yard sale cruiser.

      Hey, 68 custom, I like the comment about the cop wheels. I ran a standby ambulance service in Lubbock years ago, and we found a ’68 Plymouth wagon that was a ex-Air Force ambulance at the local Texas Surplus Property lot. I had seen this one when it was in service; and a buddy of mine who was an A.F. medic at the time had made runs in it and had told me what a fast-runner it was. This same unit had served at the base in Clovis, NM, an the guy said that he had made an emergency transfer from Canon AFB to then-Methodist ER in Lubbock (right at 100 mi) in slightly more than 45 minutes. The wagon was priced at $250 at the time, and we applied to get it, but some volunteer fire dept. not from us got it. I don’t know if they used it as an ambulance or as a chief’s buggy or what, as this was in the early ’80s, about the time that Texas started forcing us out of low-top vehicles and into Type IIs as a minimum. I would’ve liked to have driven it, just to see if my buddy had been right about the speed.

    Reminds me of my dads ‘73 Plymouth Suburban he got new for his government job. That thing hated starting on cold Los Angeles mornings. The whole neighborhood could hear that starter screaming at 6 AM!

      Just curious, how low does the thermometer need to fall to be considered “cold” in LA?

    Anything below 63 is cold. Average temps here are 67 in winter, 86 in summer here along the coast. The temps get more harsh further inland. Born and raised here. Coldest I have experienced was 24 in DC. Hated it!!

      Yeah, I really feel for you when below 63 is “cold”. LOL. I bet a lot of others are in the same boat. The older I get the more I like it to be warm. I would love to live where the temperatures still within your LA range, but then I would need to live in the People’s Republic of CA and that is not going to happen.
