Not every Mopar enthusiast has a 71 Hemi ‘Cuda or 69 Charger, however today we have a Mopar muscle car which is very hard to define as a muscle car, however it is very rare and also cool. You might have not heard before, but we are talking about the 1978 Dodge Aspen Street Kit Car.
First, let’s make clear, this ‘78 Aspen came customized directly from a factory, which only was affected the exterior whit a body kit: fender flares, rear spoiler, front splitter and the large Richard Petty 43 number on the doors. On the other side, the interior remains luxurious and very comfortable.
This 1978 Dodge Aspen Street Kit Car is powered by an E58 option, Chryslers 360 cubic-inch, 5.9-liter LA small-block V8 engine. Unlike the other Mopars from the golden muscle car era, this engine produces only 220 horsepower and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. In addition it is equipped with a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission.
