I am selling a 1980 Dodge Omni 024, it was my mom's car and she purchased it new. It is titled with current plates in my brother's name. He gave it to me and my plan was just to clean it up and drive it around once in awhile since it is unique and sort of cool, but I can't get it to start because it has no spark, might need a new coil or rotor? Unfortunately, where I have it parked is not be a safe area and someone broke 2 windows to get into it to steal the battery frown I have no other place to store it and I would hate to see it be vandalized anymore so I'm going to sell it cheap. You will need a trailer to tow it. Cash only. Use the area code for Des Moines to call me, not the 555 listed, I do this so I don't get two or three robo calls every day trying to help me sell it.

My first new car was a near twin, orange 024 Sport, mine was a stick shift. Gutless but never failed me, 1.6 liter engine by VW.

2.2s did have cams freeze in the heads.Usually from lack of oil changes or low oil.We replace them at work back in the day.Parts store usualy had a few reman heads in stock.If it was close Id be interested.Had one and my son drove it.Nice little cars and cheap and easy to fix.Wonder if it has the rubber mount under the carb.Rocky

I had a 79 with the 1.7 VW. I believe it had somewhere around 75hp. Had trouble getting up some hills. Also had some really odd things break. It was a nice car, but the engine was definitely the weak link.

I actually have a 1.7 head rebuilt laying around, was hoping not to use it as a door stop or boat anchor. If someone buys this car and it has the 1.7 they can have it for free. wave The 1.6 Simca engine came in these in 1983.

Haven't seen one of these in years. Looks like somebody got it almost for free. Not my cup of tea, though.

Makes me wonder about the hobby, if cars like these will ever see collector value, or if they will only exist in photos some day. I suspect the second.
