Farley, this is the best site on the net, as soon as I found it I loaded it into my favorites file. Even though it seems to be exclusivly for Diplomats, I think it`s the best thing since sliced bread. Anyway, I have a 1988 Plymouth Gran Fury salon, with the high performance 318-4barrel, and sure-grip rear end. It was a lake county police car (detective`s) and I have original factory papers to prove it. My sister bought it form rochenbach chevy 2 years ago after her honda died, when I first saw it, it looked pretty sad. The drivers side of the front end was smashed, and the rust, dents (nice rubber floor!) and scratches made it look like a real junker that was ready for demo derby, but after I had witnessed the furys` fury on the toll way it had found a place in my heart. But last year my sister had decided to get rid of it one day, and I was devastated, but when I got home from a weekend trip to Wisconson there it was sitting in the driveway, and my mom handed me the keys. Since then I cleared a space in my garage, and stripped down the fury for a total restoration, I have put in a new stering gear and ps pump, new front clip, and have taken care of the rust. I plan to clean and paint all underhood components, and put on chrome valve covers and a air cleaner. Over the past year I have accquired the chrome engine stuff, carpet, a bose stero system from a cadillac (speakers fit perfect, radio does not),chrome wheels, and a deal for a cheap, but professional paint job. When I tell people this they say how old are you? You see I just started high school and I have 2 years til the day of freedom with the fury. So I have plenty of time to work on it. Once I figure out how to use a scanner or digital camera I`ll send you some pictures. I`d love to stay and tell stories of the fury, but I`ve got an algebra test tommrow.

JB,
Fury Fan

Dear Frank, and of course Farley:
Just wanted to tell you what a kick my folks and I got out of your page. Its touching, (or a relief?) to know there are other people out there who get so attatched to their cars. We have a 84 chrysler 5th ave, which we like very much ("The Black Stallion" after my mothers' like of things equine.) Still, despite its age it looks posh and dignified. My new significant other, a 57 Plymouth named "Joann" says to say hi to farley, her cousins were in law enforcement too (four doors, gotta love em!)
Anyway, Your page brought a smile to our faces! what a novel idea. (and deserved,too the F,J, and M bodies were/are fantastic cars)And don't ever let anyone tell you that a car can't be your best friend! Indeed, they may save our lives one day
Take care and God Bless.

In response to the letter below, for the benefit of other visitors . . .
Concerning the Pro-Life Diplomat on Diplomats 5, I had not noticed the LeBaron Eagle on the front assembly, but if you follow the link below the image I have posted, you will be able to view other images of the car, including a rear image clearly displaying the "Diplomat" name plate on the trunk lid. With that in mind, and looking at the color on the fiberglass lip over the grille, I am pretty sure that the front end on this Diplomat was replaced with parts from a Chrylser LeBaron. Although I had not noticed the Eagle, I was pretty perplexed by that picture, but this seems to clear the smoke a bit.

I enjoyed looking around. Not many people are devoted to the Diplomat and it's counterparts in the other divisions. Glad to see your site.
Just a couple comments.... The pro-life Diplomat in your pictures is really a LeBaron. If you look closely at the side marker lights, you can see the LeBaron "eagle". It also has the turn signals above the headlights, in 1979 a sure sign of a LeBaron.
Also, all LeBaron station wagons were called Town & Country, yes due to the heritage of the woodies of the late forties, early fifties.
One last thing and I'll stop. The Mirada Convertible is really a Mirada hardtop with a "caboriet" roof treatment.... a vinyl top made to look like a convertible. Not my personal favorite, but seemed to be pretty popular with the Chrysler PR folks.
Keep up the good work. When I have more time, I'll finish looking at your site.

Hey! I looked at this site yesterday, I thought it was really cool. Speaking of Diplomats, I own 2 of 'em. They're both ex-cop cars bought from a buddy I went to school with. My 1984 is my daily driver, it has about115,000 on the clock and spotlights, lightbar, and red wig-wags(I probably shouldn't have) My other Diplomat is a 1987, my buddy took it apart,& re-did it. Now I'm putting it back together. I'm a hardcore Mopar fan.I also own an '86 Ram, and a '71 Charger,it's yellow with a white top & sunroof.Under the hood lies the original 383 Magnum.

Hi.

I was looking at your "imposters" area, and as a Fairmont nut, noticed a couple of details that weren't quite dead-on.

First, the Fairmont and the Mustang do share the "Fox" platform, but the Fairmont was designed and produced first. So, the Mustang is based on the Fairmont, not the other way around.

Second, all base Fairmonts before 1982 had the two-headlight system. Only Fairmont Futuras (with the "sleeker" 2-door bodystyle) had the four-headlight front end. After 1982, all Fairmonts were Futuras and all got the 4-headlight system.

Hello. I am the friend who will be accompanying Sue on our visit to Minnesota (she is the former Infiniti owner-turned-Diplomat fan that wrote to you). She informed me that you wrote back to her and are very close to Duluth. As you correctly observed in your e-mail to her, she is clearly the most enthusiastic M-body fan I have ever known. She recently purchased my 5th Avenue and is determined to get a Diplomat (which she lovingly refers to as the "Dippy") and a Gran Fury. I am writing to let you know that we will not be flying directly into Duluth (cheaper to fly to Minneapolis). But we will be renting a car (Chrysler, of course) and driving to the Iron Range. I grew up in Mountain Iron and will be visiting my parents. All of this is to say that Sue and I would love to meet Farley on perhaps either Friday, August 20th or Saturday, August 21st. At this point, I am attempting to convince my mother to come with us but, understandably, she doesn't quite understand the concept of meeting a 1979 Dodge. Are either of those days good for you? Let me know. Your website is fantastic. I appreciate also your message inviting people to faith in Christ.

I love the Dippy!!! It is my favorite car. I just bought a 5th Avenue and now I'm looking for a Dippy. My friend and I are planning to come to MINNESOTA in August (he is from the Iron Range area) so we'll be flying into Duluth. I would absolutely LOVE a ride in your Dippy!!! I love the Dippy. I also like the Gran Fury and Dodge Monaco. I love your website. Farley looks like a wonderful Dippy (of course, what Dippy isn't wonderful). I don't know what it is but I used to own an Infiniti and I was driving down the road one day and I saw a Dippy and I was like "Oh my God! I love that car." Since then, I have been a Dippy FANATIC. I absolutely love the car. I have been looking for a Dippy for a while now. They are not easy to find! The peeling vinyl roofs don't bother me -- in fact, they just add character to the Dippy. I'll tell you, those 318 engines will last forever. I love my 5th Ave. Now I'm trying to find a Dippy and a Gran Fury. I love the power of the V8 318 engine. Oh, and the rug in those cars!!! So soft....Well, anyway, PLEASE e-mail me back because I WOULD ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO HAVE A RIDE IN FARLEY WHEN I COME TO DULUTH! I've never been to Minnesota and there would be no better welcome than seeing a Dippy to greet me. E-mail me back as soon as possible. DIPPY! DIPPY! DIPPY!

our 1986 Diplomat when I stopped in.

We bought her after our cadillac was stolen. She really can hump it when you push the pedal down. She always has seemed a little goosey on the highway, almost as if her engine is too big for her frame. She's been a great car, thogh... and very reliable.

This is the best surprise a weird car freak like me could ask for! I am an ex-owner of an '87 cop Dip w/360 swap-alas, it was wrecked in '96. Currently own '93 Dynasty-great car! I will rejoin you crazy Diplomat owners in the future-want to build a 5th Ave. w/cop drivetrain, rear end, & suspension (360 swap, of course!). Looked at old messages-those Chevy guys never seem to be able to spell, punctuate, or have a coherent thought beyond whether to live in a single or double-wide trailer. Ask me how it feels to have sunk $4000 into a $400 car, resurrected it from the dead, only to have it all taken away by a speeding Taurus in the rain. C'mon, ask!

We have just bought an old 1979 Diplomat. But some of its parts have some small problems like signal lamb, right mirror, etc. We can not find the original parts here. You help me ?????

Hey, I like your page, feels like a meeting of like minds, the few in the crowd.. Although, Lou is no longer with me I think of him always.. If your thinking of selling you Diplomat to get something "more now", "better on fuel", or whatever.. Think really hard about how much that Diplomat costs you in maintenance, It will outweigh the savings I'm sure of it.. I'll own another some day soon.. If I can find one, I'll make it a 340W and see if I can't break the 12 s mark..

BTW: I know that it's a pretty well known thing that the 318 motor is suseptable to carbon deposits between the Intake manifold and the cylinder head air passages. Cleaning the intake passages and the cylinder ports of carbon is an easy way to improve both performance and fuel economy.. purchase an Intake manifold gasket Kit and some High temp silicone. These are the only costs, around $20.00 cdn. You can hear when they're not breathing right. Just a thought, the 318, with my experience is prone to this about every 2 years with constant driving. and no a good run doesn't burn the carbon out, wishfull thinking.. Try it if you haven't already.. Really improves performance.. (due to the Dodge fuel/air/temp mixture..)

Surfed in via the CopCar webring.

I'm an AMC fan first and foremost with a secondary
passion for Mopars.

I'm also a former owner of a Ford Fairmont ex-Police
Car used by the Lancaster, PA police (I have pictures of it here someplace!). I'd have to say I don't see where your suggestion comes from saying the Fairmont was directly aimed to compete with the Dip's...other than the simplistic squared-off shape and sorta-similar grilles, they're two are very different cars.
The Dip was far more heavy and upscale. The LTD of the
late 70s is a fairer comparison, despite being even larger, and both were targeted for the same buyer. A Fairmont actually compares better to the Aspen/Volare and Malibu.
Anyway, my Fairmont was indeed a V8/Auto, and was a very good car (for a Ford). It originally had the two-lamp grille, but I swapped it for the 4-lamp setup to better look like a police car. If you want a scan of this car, I'll go dig the pics up. LMK :)

A different page, Diplomats male (Farley of course!) and it looks like 5th Avenues are ladies. I recently bought a clean 84 5th Ave(90K miles) and since then I noticed there is a small auto cult devoted to these autos.
I must admit I like to tell people I can reach the plugs, have a 2bbl carb and rear wheel drive. I tell my bro its his 50 plymouth back after 39 years, and my bro in-law its his 50 Windsor Chrysler 6 back minus its clunko-matic and plus two more cylinders. I never named my cars although some uncles did in the past but now I must get temporary and think of a cool chick name. Enough prattle, neat page, thanks for listening

Wow, lot's of good info here. Quick story about the Dip I now own...When working as a civilian in S. Korea, I was able to purchase a recently retired '88 law enforcement GranFury at the military auction. 38K miles and semi-optioned. Everything worked and the car was a blast to drive among the hugely lesser powered local vehicles. Not that I recommend it, but I often cruised in that vehicle at between 180-200kph. Anyway, fast forward to a month ago, when I saw a near clone of my beloved 'Furyus' sitting in a Bi-Mart parking lot. Left a note on the cracked windshield and the owner contacted me shortly thereafter anxious to sell. It needed a bit of work, mostly hoses and brakes and a massive interior cleaning, but the car runs and stops fine. Not exactly pretty, but it is a solid Police version Diplomat. The car is an '82 with A/C and int. wipers. Has great tires and new brakes and is currently for sale for $650 OBO, the car is in western Orergon. Thanks for letting me share my M body story...Oh yes, the Dip has been named 'Master Blaster'...

Hello, I just thought I'd write and tell about my Dodge Diplomat. It is a 1985 model. I just bought it for $200.00. It runs pretty good, but the body needs some work, and the interior needs a serious cleaning. The vinyl top was coming off, so my Dad and I took it completely off and primered it and will paint it. So far I like the car. It is my first Dodge, and it has been driven daily and will be mostly my work car. If anyone wants or can tell me anything about these old Dodges, please feel free to e-mail me. Thanks for letting me tell my story.

I just can't believe that there are other people (sickos) who think these cars are great! My first car was Plymouth Caravelle s-type 2 door coupe with a hot 340 that turned out to be a 318. Even with the mundane mill this car was feared and respected. Terrorizing the streets in a car that looked unsuspecting yet menacing at the same time is feeling i wish to get back. Needless to say being young with a fairly powerful car yielded a wrecked car in about 2 years. I am currently seeking another 2 door Diplomat with which to transform into the ultimate street sleeper (big block). Anyways great site and i hope to see more in the upgrades area especially suspension and handling.

Hi Frank:
I have been absent on Farley's page for several months as my 87 Diplomat was on loan to my son in Mpls. Lulu came back dirty, some minor scars, and a rusted out gas tank. I also have a rusted out emissions metal tube coming out of the catalytic converter up to the engine compartment.
Do you have any sources in the Twin Ports area for a reasonably priced gas tank and a metal tube that screws into the converter. I am getting Lulu prettied up and am planning a paint job this summer and new tires. What tire source do you have? I have been buying up at Sam's Club for the best price on 205 - 75 - 15". I appreciate your Christian witness and the fact that you let your light shine. I am a believer and in fact am preaching tomorrow morning in our pastor's absence. We attend the Grace Bible Evangelical Free Church here in Washburn and have a Bible Preaching, Loving Pastor and a church with a good testimony. Join us whenever you are in the area. I also lead a Tues. morning interdenominational men's breakfast fellowship every week at the Small World Restaurant here in Washburn from 7 - 8 a.m. We have a great time with Christian brothers from all over the area. Join us when you can. I am still employed as the guidance counselor at WITC in Ashland; however, I'm planning retirement next year with 33 years under my belt. Then I can serve the Lord on more of a full time business and I can play more with my cars including my Diplomat. I also am restoring an 84 SAAB and have a 63 Valiant convertible and a 40 Chev. Master Deluxe. Working on these vehicles is a wonderful stress reducer for me.
Keep in touch, Steve. I also sent an article in to Farley's Forum. You are doing a great job with your Farley's Website.

My family has been Mopar or no car for decades. With a stable of high performance muscle cars my mom and dad wanted a grocery getter and family truckster with some ooommmpphhh. Their choice? An '82 Dippy which Dad, my brother, and I later dropped a cop powertrain into. Since then my family has gone on to own seven M-bodies, two true cop cars, another with a slant in it, a Lebaron with the works, including T-tops, and a two wagons. It's great to find such a plethora of information that's available on this site and even better to find out there are such die hard Dippy fans.

Very nice page. I love the fact that some people still believe in keeping the vehicle they have. I have a 1988 Dodge Ram D100 with the first year fuel injected 3.9L V-6 rated at 125HP and 195ft/lbs of torque. It has a Holley 2bbl Throttle Body Injection System, a Chrysler A998 3 speed automatic with a lockup torque converter. It has a 8 1/4(or 8 3/8) Chrysler Rear axel with the very popular 3.55 gear ratio for their trucks. This truck is very base with only a heater/defroster and a radio.

Incredible web site! Has already helped and inspired me so much, and I've "only" spent a few hours looking around the site. I saw a "photo-ad" of a 1980 Diplomat in a local car trader weekly just awhile back. Looked just like the car I rented (and loved) at Boston's Logan airport 20 years ago! The "dippy" (by the way, "DIPPY" is still available as a California "vanity" license plate- I checked!)is a 4 door Salon in Light Cashmere, 318 4 barrel, with 72,000 miles. Previous owners (unknown, but last owner says it had been donated to a non-profit senior center for re-sale) really kept this old beauty protected....it's obviously been covered from the elements all of it's life and just needed someone to carry on the pride of ownership and fix a few mechanical things. So, ..I bought it! Then I found your web site and really got the 411 on this car. Thank you so much! I've had a rear trans. mount replaced, and had 4 new shocks installed. This coming week it will get a new muffler and tailpipe, and new registration and insurance to keep the DMV happy. Within a couple of weeks the A/C will be blowing cold air....that's a must for me, even though the two estimates to fix the A/C were "$350 to start, bud..." and "between $650 and $800 should do it"....ouch! Not the Diplomat's fault of couse, just that the old R-12 freon gas costs more than gold now that it's been banned from further production in the U.S- holes in ozone layer they say. Anyway, the original owners manual is still in the glove box. And to keep the car protected from sun damage (there's that ozone layer again!)I bought a car cover. And put synthetic oil in the engine. And....there's lot's more to do get it purr-fect, but it sure is fun! I hope to find a good sound system before Summer's end too- the A.M. radio is great for listening to the ballgames, but aren't we all spoiled by the awesome music systems that just didn't exist in Reagan era cars? I just don't want one that is visually intrusive....like to keep the stock look as best I can. Well, I could go on and on, but gotta go for now. Just know that "www.dippy.org" is the greatest...congratulations!

I am going off to college next year and my dad intends on diposing of my '78 Aspen to avoid having to work on it, seeing as how it is barely still running.

Gret web site!!! I recently purchases a 1989 ex Kansas police cruiser Diplomat, its got a big 183000 on the clock, but it runs like a youngster once it gets going. There is one electrical problem however, sometimes it fails to start, usually all it takes to get it going is to pop the hood, disconnect the coil lead, reconnect it and try again, but it gets annoying. Anybody got any suggestions to what might be up?

I recently purchased a 1979 Dodge Diplomat, 2 door, 225 slant six (rebuilt), automatic transmission with 110,000 miles. She's white with a red vinyl half top, red interior. Other than some chipped paint and faded vinyl, this car is a great stock, complete, unmolested, and in great condition grandpa's car (literally on the grandpa part). She's a little slow to get up to speed but cruises nicely, has power steering, power disk brakes, cruise, air conditionioning, power seat, original AM-FM radio with single speaker in dash, all working (AC needs a little work), great interior, trunk in great shape, original carpet, jack, etc, etc. I purchased her cheap as a second car but I already have visions of a 360 V-8 implant, similar to the one I did on a 1970 Plymouth Duster years ago. The only difference is the Diplomat has a few more pounds on her than the Duster! It may have to wait until she's smog exempt (3 years) or I move out of the area (Army). Drop me a line if you have parts or want to BS Mopar - I've had a few (along with my 30+ cars in the last 15 or so years. I'm also a International Harvester enthusiast (first and foremost). Just call me automotively diversified!

Loved your opening! What a gauntlet to run and definitely food for thought. I am here because I need to sell our 1978 Dodge Diplomat. We are missionaries working stateside to support those in the field and our daughter is starting college and is commuting using this lovely old car. It is not economical and we need to change to a different car. This Diplomat has 87,000 miles original and is in pretty good shape other than the ravages of sun on the vinyl top. I want to sell it but not to someone who doesn't appreciate it. Any recommendations??

Hello,

My name is Idsert Hartendorf. I just moved from Holland (Europe) to Canada a couple of months ago. I've never owned a vehicle before, the public transport systeme back home is pretty good, but now that I am living in Canada, I have to own a car. I bougth a blue 1986 Dodge Diplomat (Salon) in May. ( I call it the 'blue whale')

I am pretty pleased with it for it's in good shape (only 75.000 km's) and it gets me anywhere i have to go. Ever since i own this car I've been looking at other cars from the same family like the New Yorker and the Caravelle.
I guess it's the down to earth feeling and look that does it for me.

Being interested in my Diplomat and it's family, I looked up Diplomat on the google search engine. I was surprised, but then again not really, to see more people loving their Diplomats. It was fun to read up on the Diplomats' history. In Holland you don't see these cars. I believe Chrysler stopped making cars for the european market in the seventies.
The only thing left that was Chrysler owned, were the French Talbot cars. They were probably never put on the market in North America. It was also good to read that the Diplomats and his siblings were used as police cars.

Well that's all.

Greetings Idsert Hartendorf

Great job on your site. Your site has by far the most and the best content. Farley's thoughts on speeding really made me think, and on my drive yesterday, I drove slower without conscious thought. Farley sounds like a wonderful car. I saw a near identical one the road near Maine yesterday. The pre 1980 M's are still around in the most unlikely places. Keep up the great page.

I was shocked to see someone else loves the Dodge Diplomat.
I've owned two. A 1977 2-door, and a 1979 2-door. Both purchased at the same Mopar dealer.
I've referred to both cars as "Wonder Dodge," the '77 as Wonder Dodge, then the '79 as Wonder Dodge Jr.
I still own the '79 although I will need to part with it shorty. To my dismay (as well as my girlfriend's).
Good luck with your site.

I only wish I had more space, but living in an apartment I don't. I had 7 cars at one time in my old apartment. Course I was friends with the land-lady and could get away with it. Now I'm stuck with only one, had to get rid of the rest. Kept the dip of course. Hope to get more some day, though more and more people are realizing how good of a car they are and aren't getting rid of them.

I've since purchased an '87 Diplomat SE with 62,000 miles. Fully loaded, excellent interior, not-so excellent exterior.

I'll be adding a tow-hitch and oil/trans coolers, "cop" wheels, and fixing the a/c and moonroof, but other than that just plan on driving it as a station car and parts hauler.

love the website. been a mopar fan ever since i owned a 79 magnum it had the 360/2brl it just wasn't as fast as i thought it looked so in went a 440 no doubt about that did the trick. drove it for about 8 yrs by this time the 440 was getting a little tired so it was rebuild time. put the fresh motor in and came to the realization that the magnum was pretty tired too the first time i got on it hard. rust problems need i say more. so here i am with this motor and nothing to put it. lucky for me i was looking through the local auto trader in the swap section and came across an add wanting to trade a chevy 350 motor and trans for an 80 2dr diplomat. was a done deal as soon as i seen. sure it was rough around the edges but definately had potential. when i started looking for info i found that the general opinion is that a big block swap pretty indepth in a dippy. i don't really understand what everyone has the problem with. my own experience wasn't that bad. the 440 is in it and for the record it is sitting in the same frame mounts the 318 came out of the only real problem was clearence between the brake booster and the valve cover which a set of low profile covers took care. other than the fact that the headers requires you to use an aftermarket shifter because interference with the stock column shifter linkage. i've now got about 6 or 8 thousand miles since the swap and i have to admit i have no regrets. i'm shocked there aren't big blocks going in more diplomats, just seems to be on everyone's wishlist. the best its done to date 0 to 60 6.14 seconds and 13.8 at 114.4 mph in the quarter according to my g-tech performance meter however with more traction and more tweaking i'm sure it will do better. not exactly what dodge intended but is sure fun to drive.

I had great fun reading about Farley and his friends. I really admire the M Body Chryslers, even though there are not very many in Britain. Most of them that are here are ex-squads, which is no bad thing.

I admire them even more after reading about the life of Farley. Surviving 300,000 miles and 25 years of hard usage is a testament to the intrinsic toughness of Mopars. Good luck with your resto.

I am the proud owner of a 1987 Diplomat SE with a 318 2 BBL. It has 93,000 original miles, and is in showroom condition. I am very impressed with this web site. I very much appreciate the message on the pause.html page. The Bible speaks the way, the truth, and the light. Praise the Lord for all His blessings!

Hi. Great site. I just got my car, so I was searching & found it. I've registered the car too, a 1980 Diplomat "S" coupe. Low production on these, 6,849 total. I also have a '65 Dart.

Well, it looks like this is the place to go for M body Mopars. I have enjoyed the site and invite all M body fans to visit my dear friend Reggie at his website which demonstrates his favorite pastime, natually it's an M body, and to visit type
www.plymouthinterceptor.com
Also, stay tuned throughout the summer while larger and better pictures are added. Thanks for the forum, restore those Mopars!!! Thomas.

I'm very pleased with your site and its informitive aspects of the dodge diplomat.We had owned a 1981 diplomat with a 318 being as young as i was when we had owned i fell in love with the car .It had been a family owned car passed on to my father when his father passed away in 92 .But my father is not a car lover and sold it for $475 in 95 i couln't convince him to save it for me .I know own a 95 mercury sable gs and i'm very pleased with the car but i truly want a diplomat from the early 80's with a 360 in it .If anyone has one within close range to winnipeg i would be willing to look at it for purchase .
May the farly page live on with joy of the owners of the m-bodies.

I had a 1979 Dodge Diplomat Magnum. I will miss it everyday until the day that I leave this planet. Cruising, T-Tops off, V-8 roaring...it doesnt get much better than that.
