If you didn't already know, I'm on the hunt for a new daily driver to replace the Miata. As much as I love that little car, it isn't good at hauling much more than myself around. Occasional kid duty and frequent hardware store stops necessitate something bigger and since I'm never one to go halfway, When it comes to classic cars used for municipal duties, I'm always a fan. Growing up, there was a fleet of Chrysler K-Cars parked under a federal court building in my hometown, and although they were hardly desirable, I'm certain those dust-covered taxpayer-funded rides had next to no miles on the clock.

After the model year, the Valiant and Dart models were discontinued. This was done to improve fuel economy through reduced wind drag, improve crosswind stability, reduce wind noise, and increase interior ventilation performance. These models helped to reveal stress points in the design phase before any sheet metal was formed. In addition, a reduced number of steel stampings offered better sheet metal panel fits with fewer welds needed. For the new models, the Chrysler Corporation introduced the Isolated Transverse Suspension System; this new front suspension system used torsion bars that crossed and were mounted transversely beneath the engine, a noticeable change from the longitudinal torsion bar suspension that Chrysler had introduced in and had used on all models up to that time. This allowed the wheels to move rearward, instead of straight up and down, when the tires encountered an object, thereby dampening the blow and "rolling with" the bump rather than resisting it. These components were attached to a K-shaped structural cross member, which itself was isolated from the unitized car body by four rubber mounts.
