This advertisement appeared on the inside back cover of the December 1978 National Geographic. It not only emphasizes the (apparently 1979) Diplomat's "great mileage," but uses Dodge's catch phrase from days gone by: "Hey, that's my Dodge!"
dip002.jpg (37553 bytes) This July 1978 National Geographic advertisement pictures what appears to be a 1978 Diplomat; its front grille and mileage ratings are slightly different than the 1979's (pictured in the first ad). Still, the "diplomacy" pun makes this ad memorable.  A new larger size photo is now installed.

dip007.jpg (40878 bytes) This car was Scott Kuznicki's dad's first new car, a Diplomat SE. He got it in October of 1985. Scott remembers when they test drove it. It smelled and felt totally new (obviously). It had 185,000 miles on it when Scott traded it in September 1995. He says his dad contends that it was one of the nicest cars ever made, and Scott agrees. He says that despite the fact that the 318-V8 was choked by emissions laws, it generated plenty of power, and it returned good fuel mileage. Overall, he says it was a good buy for $10,000 in 1985.

dip010.jpg (33610 bytes) Eric Plosky's 1987 Dodge Diplomat.   His site says that it is "known variously as 'Hornet' (owing to the presence of the string 'F18' in its license plate) and 'Airport Service' (owing to the presence of vinyl letters to that effect on the trunk, a present from the taxi company that previously owned the car)."
