The 1973 oil crisis forced the American automotive industry into a period of dramatic change, marked by stiff foreign competition, tougher product regulations and suddenly altered consumer demand. With gas prices soaring and the economy in a veritable tailspin, muscle cars and the massive qneed-for-speedq engines of the late '60s were out, and fuel efficient compacts were in. By 1980, American manufacturers were churning out some of the most feature laden, yet smallest and most fuel efficient cars they had ever built. This exhaustive reference work details every model from each of the major American manufacturers from model years 1973 through 1980, including various qcaptive importsq (e.g. Dodge's Colt, built by Mitsubishi.) Within each model year, it reports on each manufacturer's significant news and details every model offered: its specifications, powertrain offerings, prices, standard features, major options, and production figures, among other facts. The work is heavily illustrated with approximately 1, 300 photographs.Powertrains 98 (3a€œ Net Engine Transmission Custom Engine HP Code Availabilitya#39; Starfire Omega Cutlass Delta 88 Cruiser Ioronado 231 CID (3.8L), 105 C 4a€”speed manual S a€” a€” a€” a€” a€” 2-bbl., V62 MPG: 22/35/26 a€” a€” a€” a€” a€” Califanbsp;...
