First, we must watch the Ricardo Montalban ad that started it all. In Cordoba, I have what I need!
Plastic "gold" Cordoba medallions may be found all over this fine personal luxury automobile. Weighing in at a portly 4,021 pounds and motivated by a thirsty 318 or 360, the Cordoba wasn't quite the ideal machine for a time of fuel-price insecurity. By '78, the stacked rectangular headlights had taken away some of the Ricardoesque appeal, and sales were declining.
Even the taillights had the medallions!
I couldn't get any decent interior shots, so it's hard to ascertain whether this car had the optional Corinthian Leather upholstery. Yes, it was optional, though you have to assume that Cordoba buyers wouldn't have settled for vinyl.
