The Magnum was sold in two forms; the “XE” and the “GT”. It was the last vehicle to use the long running Chrysler B platform. The appearance was somewhat of a rounded off Charger, and was in response to getting a car that would be eligible for NASCAR that would be more aerodynamic, something that the 1975-1978 Charger was not. Styling features included four rectangular headlights behind retractable clear covers, with narrow opera windows, and an optional T-bar or power sunroof. The Magnum was well-featured with power steering, brakes and seats; the suspension included Chrysler’s standard adjustable, longitudinal torsion bars, lower trailing links, and front and rear anti-sway bars. The base engine was the 318 cu in V8 with Lean Burn, while two and four-barrel carbureted 360 cu in and 400 cu in V8s were optional; weight was nearly 3,900 lb.
The Magnum had a design for those who grew up in the muscle car era, but who were now family people. After spending my teens and early 20s in R/Ts and Super Bees, Now having a wife and two children and long trips for vacations. Yet, burning inside was the need for something that didn’t look like dad’s car.
The Magnum had a muscle car look with comfort and room for a family. It sported hideaway headlights, and a sloping nose. Performance wise, the car had a front and rear sway bar, torsion bar suspension, and rear leaf springs. The torsion bar/leaf spring gave the car an edge over coil-spring cars like the Mustang/Camaro.
