When you hear about a Malaise Era Dodge, most of the time it's a 1974 example, because that was the year of the Bluesmobile. That means that 1974 Chrysler C-body stands a much better chance of being cared for than a '73 B-body (thanks to those of you who pointed out my B/C-body screwup). Here's an example I spotted at a local junkyard, near the Country Squire wagon; as a 1973 Coronet with a
much different grille totally different platform than Jake and Elwood's car, there was no chance that the healing rays of an internationally successful megafranchise such as the Blues Brothers would ever convince its owner to pay for the $381 repair (or maybe it was an accumulation of parking tickets) that ultimately doomed it to the wrecking yard. But hey, check out the CB antenna and rear window blinds!
