In spite of the Super Disco Potential of their ads for the car, Chrysler was never able to turn the original Magnum (no, not this Magnum) into the sales sensation they felt it should have been. The Magnum was made for the Middle Malaise years of '78 and '79 only and then disappeared without a trace. Well, almost without a trace; I ran across this example in an East Bay wrecking yard last weekend. Even though it's been on the yard for a while, nobody has bothered to pull any parts from it. Make the jump for even more photos.
