***Fully Certified -- New C/V Boot***
The original K-cars, the Plymouth Reliant and Dodge Aries, had a smartly integrated front wheel drive layout that represented a new breed of North American automobile.
The cars were a combination of traditional North American architecture and the modern European style with solid-beam rear axles, rack and pinion steering, MacPherson front suspensions, and transverse-mounted four-cylinder engines with front wheel drive.
All original Aries had a 100.1 inch wheelbase. The overall length of the four-door model was 176 inches and has approximately 15 cubic feet of luggage space.
Another reason for the cars’ success was the well designed 2.2 liter (135 cid) four cylinder powerplant. The 2.2s were reliable and had decent torque at low speeds.
For 1984, the Aries were given a minor facelift, though retaining their squarish looks and brought a more upscale appearance, a new instrument panel with gas, temperature, and voltage gauges, and a trip odometer; color-keyed seat belts; molded trunk carpet; and another 7.5 inches of front seat travel. The SE model provided upscale interior appointments above that.
The original K-cars were a true success story for nine years.
