PPI's WELCOME OFFERS WELCOME! Evolve Motors and Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1978 Plymouth Volare Super Coupe! Here's a rare one. The Volare Super Coupe was available for the 1978 model year only. and came as a result of Chrysler's effort to build a performance image for the F-body line of cars. The “Super Coupe” designation was actually an option on the Volare. and it didn't come cheap. When new. the Super Coupe package was a $1. 16 add-on. which equated to about a third of the car's entire price. Adjusted for 2017 dollars. that's a $5. 86 option. While sales were less than stellar. having sold only 494 total units. the Super Coupe's performance was impressive. When it debuted. the Volare Super Coupe was quicker from zero to sixty than the Camaro Z28. Corvette. and Firebird Trans-Am. And to ensure the car wasn't just a straight-line performer. the Super Coupe was fitted with heavy duty suspension. a rear sway bar. and GR60 x 15” rubber tucked into the wheel wells . Every Volare Super Coupe was painted in the same color scheme you see here. Crimson Sunfire with yellow. orange. and red striping. Very late-70s cool. The F-body twins (Volare and Aspen) were initially met with praise. having actually been named Car and Driver's Car of the Year in 1976. However. this great reputation didn't last; the F-body cars were plagued with recalls. As a result. many examples weren't taken care of and have succumbed to time. While many Volare's were neglected. this particular Volare has been well taken care of; we purchased the car from an enthusiastic owner who had owned the car for nearly twenty years and always kept it garaged. Exterior: Body is in excellent condition; there are no dents. dings. or scuffs. The car saw a B quality repaint in Crimson/Black about ten years ago. While there are very little signs of wear or aging. with no scratches or significant chips. the paint isn't factory quality. There is visible paint run on the black rear bumper. The paint is decent but nor perfect and as you can see it shows really well! Factory wheel arch flares and rear quarter louvers give the Super Coupe a muscular look. and the racecar-like pinstriping reinforces that. New pinstripes were applied following the paint-job and show very nicely. Wheels are in excellent condition. Dunlop G/T Qualifier tires are in excellent shape as well. though are a bit dated. All trim presents nicely with no oxidation. All four wheel arch flares are in excellent condition. aside from a very minor blemish on the front right flare. Glass is free of chips or cracks. though there are markings on the glass from rubbing on the inside of the door panel. We also note the typical windhsield wiper scratch that makes the arch of the movement. Lights are all clear. crack-free. and functional. The inside of the door jambs show no signs of rust formation or overspray. Panel fitment is spot-on and doors open and close without any fuss. Interior: Red vinyl interior presents very well. There are a few burst seams on the bottom of the driver's seat. but the seat back is intact and the passenger seat is in excellent shape. Red dash. seats. door panels. carpet. and headliner remain vibrant. with the only areas showing any fading or darkening being the center console and door panel armrests. The dash has a couple light cracks. nothing through. Carpet is in nice shape throughout. with no tears or stains. Headliner is tight and free of any scratches or damage. Heat and defrost are functional; this car does not have air conditioning. All gauges are functional. as is the Jensen head unit with cassette player and Kenwood speakers. Mechanical: This Super Coupe is a monster. It is tastefully modified. and includes some of the original parts like the aircleaner and valve covers. The car has its original. date-matching 360cid 4bbl E58 V-8 “LA” High Performance engine and Torqueflite automatic transmission. Exhaust note is menacing to say the least. The car has a header dump. meaning that you can bypass the mufflers by uncapping the exhaust. if you do so choose. making it properly loud. The car has factory power steering and power brakes. in addition to high-flow headers. an Edelbrock intake. Holley 4 barrel carburetor. a fuel pressure regulator. rear track bars. and a Holley electric fuel pump. Tires are Dunlop G/T Qualifiers. which have since been discontinued but are in excellent shape. Tires are 295/50SR15 in the rear. and 245/60SR15 up front. The car runs and drives very well. It tracks straight. brakes well. and makes serious power. It'll break traction at just about any speed if you put your right foot down. It makes all the power you could ask for and. while we are not sure on a HP number. we will tell you that it will lay rubber down a city block through the gears. It shifts nice and crisp. steers great. and stops well. You will not be disappointed. Underbody: Around the same time the car was painted. 3M undercoating was applied. The underbody has held up very well. While there is evidence of a mild rust repair on the forward-most portion of the driver's side frame rail. there are absolutely no through spots. or much surface rust for that matter. It appears as though the car was undercoated whenever the owner started to notice the rust. We also note some light rust and a couple small holes on the rear underside panel. not structural. Rockers are in excellent shape. This car is very consistent top to bottom. and while it will not win Concurs accolades it will certainly win local shows wherever you take it. Overall: This is a sharp looking. well-sorted example of one of the lesser known. harder-to-come-by Mopars. While this car isn't completely original or quite concours-quality. it's a well-maintained. performance-oriented example of a very interesting. attractive. and rare car that can be driven and enjoyed.
