If you grew up in the 80s, it would be a pretty safe bet that one of your Grandparents or your buddies Grandparents picked you up from the mall or the movies in one of these babies! The reason why this car was so popular with those who sought comfort, performance, value and could not care less about the “flash”…this Diplomat checked all those boxes with authority! This original running and driving 1988 Dodge Diplomat is showing 29K miles on the odometer, which are believed original. This car packs a 318 cubic inch V8 with a 2 barrel carb hooked up to an automatic transmission which provides the aforementioned performance. The exterior and matching interior are believed 100% original to the car and are in excellent condition. The interior features all the creature comforts you would expect in a decked out Diplomat: A/C, power windows, power mirrors, power locks, power steering, power brakes and best of all…power seats providing the aforementioned comfort! This one is about to take a lucky new owner down the 80s memory lane, because it is being sold No Reserve!
This collection of vehicles comes from Major Eugene Severn, a retired Air Force pilot with 22 years of service under his wings. During his career the Major was stationed at many different air bases stateside: North Carolina, Oklahoma, North Dakota and Texas. The Major served overseas at Etain Air Base in France, Rhein Main Air Base in Germany, and Kaoena AFB in Okinawa, Japan. His favorite and the place he called home for many years was Texas. While stationed in James Connally Air Base in Texas the Major started his car collection with the Dodge Coupe D-14 and the 1957 Studebaker Golden Hawk, which he purchased brand new. The Major personally drove the Golden Hawk up to Iowa in the early 70s then put the car on blocks in a friends garage where it remained until June 2018! Since arriving in Iowa, the Majors collection grew to over 20 cars. That said, his love for machines was not limited to cars. The Major, not surprisingly, had a love for airplanes as well. In his prime he owned and operated a 1946 Cessna 120, a 1949 Cessna 140A, a 1950 Swift and a Culver Cadet.
