By today's standards, this car would be considered huge, but when it was new, it was considered "small."

Well compared to a real Mopar it is small.

Years ago, I had a 1973 Plymouth Duster. It was considered a compact car. The gal I was dating had a 1979 Caprice. It was considered a full sized car. Her ex-husband beat the stuffing out of the car just before he gave it to her in the divorce settlement. The body was okay but mechanically, it needed a lot of attention. I'd sometimes loan her my car and work on hers. I brought it back to her once and parked it alongside my car. Later, as I was leaving, I noticed that the fronts were even. My rear bumper was a couple of inches behind hers. :confused:

Ah, the rich smell of "Corinthian leather" in the morning!

Here's my definition of a "large" Mopar.... well never see anything like that again.... a '77 Dodge Royal Monaco.

The 70's cars were already downsized. For a real full size car ya gotta go back to the late 60's.
