dip052.gif (60065 bytes) A pretty clean-looking 1988 Diplomat I found for sale online.  This one is a higher trim level package, noted because of the inverted headlight assembly mainly used on Fifth Avenues.  This can be identified as a Diplomat because of the cross-hair grille.

"Hi my name is Ed Hodowanic.  I live in Rockton, IL and this is a picture of my Dodge Diplomat that I inherited from my father when he passed away. My father bought this car new and it has 50,000 original miles now.  I completed a complete restoration on it 2 years ago.  It is only driven
occasionally and I enjoy entering it into car shows.  So far I have won 2nd place trophy in the M body class in Belvidere IL."
We like it!

Here's some photos of a rare Diplomat T-top Coupe.  Until I heard from Bob Ewald, the former owner of this 1980 car, I had not known there was such a Diplomat style in existence.  As far as I know, these are the only photos of a Diplomat T-top available on the web.  Bob writes:
"This is a 1980 Diplomat which I purchased in 1981.  It was ordered through Blomberg Motors in Rochelle IL. by a friend of mine.  His wife decided it wasn't big enough for her so they traded it for a Lincoln in 1981, when I saw it on the lot I just had to have it.  I paid a premium price of $6500 for it.  It served me very well for the next 15 years as I just couldn't seem to part with such a rarity.   It basically was a Salon Model, which had the Type S on the back windows.  It came with Gold interior with bucket seats, air, cruise, AM/FM-8-Track Tape player, and the special chrome-plated wheels with color matching center caps.  It had the 318-2V engine with the automatic trans. and sure-grip rear end.  Later in its years I put white letter tires on it but I don't have any pictures with this.  The build sheet said this T-Top conversion was done at Cars & Concepts in Detroit for Chrysler Corp., as they also did this on the Mirada and Magnums of this era.  I did break a handle once and got it from the local Dodge dealer.  I went over to the guy's house last week end hoping there might be a chance of buying it back, but he had an accident with it last spring and it had been totaled out.  I have seen (2) other Type S's in the area, both were blue, but none with T-Tops.  I still would like to know if anyone out there knows of how many of these were made. Thanks Again, Bob"
