This is a 1977 Dodge Apsen SE Coupe with ultra rare factory T-Tops and only 39,538 miles. It is Russet Sunfire with tan vinyl interior. It had been in storage (pole barn on a farm) for about 25 years and was brought out of its long sleep this year. That included all fluids being changed, full tune up, rebuild the carb, new shocks and such. It has zero rust and may be hard to find such a solid example of one like this anywhere. It features the famous 318 V8 2bbl engine with the torqueflite automatic, ultra rare factory T-tops. I believe there were only about 417 of these made with that option that year. It also has factory air conditioning, which will need servicing because it hasn’t been used in years, power driver seat, factory road wheels, tilt wheel, and cruise control to name the main options. It was a well equipped car for its day and is a 2 tag data plate car. It runs, drives and goes down the road great and is a blast to drive. Goes down the road perfect and brakes work perfect. This car does NOT need a restoration, however there are a few small areas that will need attention that I will mention. The worst thing is that the passenger side t-top has a crack in it but is completely intact and not causing any issues. The factory AM/FM radio is present but was removed and an aftermarket radio was in there. It will need to be reinstalled and wired for whatever you want to do. As mentioned, the air conditioning will need to be serviced and converted to R134 to bring it up to date but it is all there. The valve covers appear to have the typical leaks which I am guessing time played a part in but it is super easy repair. Other than a few small scratches, chips and such it is a true survivor. There is way more right with car than anything bad. Chrome, glass, vinyl top, interior and dash are in excellent condition just to name a few. The carpet has some slight fading from time, but is original. I would love to take the time to repair these light items but time is one thing I don’t have enough of right now. This is the first time this car is being offered for sale and these are now becoming quite collectable and this is the right example to have. I would like to believe whoever gets this car will not be disappointed as it may be one of the best survivors out there.
