Breaker 1-9, breaker 1-9, GM had that too. Not sure about Chrysler, but they prolly did, CBs were a huge fad for a few years.:)

IIRC, it was an option with just about everybody from around '76-80. IIRC, my folks had one as an option in their '79 Lincoln and my Dad put one in our '78 Southwind and '82 Pace Arrow motorhomes. I remember as a kid listening to it in the motorhome and my Dad playing around on it to get traffic info on cross-country vacations.

With cellphones so ubiquitous, one forgets the forerunner, the CB. Man, there were even hit songs about them. 10-4 goodbuddy...

Here we go again with the "pillared-hardtop" moniker.

Go F*** Yourself Ford. <_<

Whoever came up with that got an F- in marketing 101.

Wierd...it was a thread on CBs.. and GM did the same thing..didn't they call theirs 'Collonade hardtops'? (Ford had theirs from '72-79, GM '73-77). They weren't a regular 4dr sedan because of the frameless door glass. I started a thread on this topic a few weeks ago (Subaru trivia)..

Collonades are lame too..... anything safety-nazi-subserviant is dumb.

I hate Ralph Nader. :angry:

Ralph Nader masturbates to vids of Corvair crash tests. In 2008, he STILL does it that way. Dude is HOOKED, I tell you.

Here's GM being innovative, designing and producing one of the most unique and

interesting vehicles ever to come out of the USA in mass production, with unique

styling, amazingly innovative, even though emulating the classic & mighty KdF

Volkswagen, and what does Nader do? Destroys it with half-truths and bullcrap

safety nazi propaganda. "Unsafe at any Speed" is a load of Camel-Turd.

Read it and report back to me... :mellow:

By the time the Corvair went out of production in 1969, it was PROVEN that it was

a n absolutely average car in safety, both crashes & fatalities were NO higher than

an average mid-1960s production car here in the USA.

It's funny how people accuse GM of being complacent, greedy and lazy in decades

past, of perpetuating planned-obsolescence and refusing to be innovative... it's a

typical belief of the "F*** the Big 3, let 'em crash & burn while we bail out banks"

Sheeple, and yet, here in 1960, with already a near-monopoly in the Automotive

marketplace GM was being more innovative and thinking outside the box more so

than anyone else PERIOD.

And they got crucified for it. The Corvair, and its amazingly fresh thinking was a

step in the right direction and yet misinformed people still talk trash of it to this day.

All the more reason why GM SHOULD build hardtops again, and keep BOF giant

trucks in production, give the people what they WANT!!!

Back to the CB thing, I've seen a factory CB in several GM cars. Looked at buying a 78 Pace Car Corvette once and IIRC it had a factory CB.

I'm not sure about GM or Chrysler but Ford still offered CB's well into the mid 80's, my ex girlfriend"s grandfather has an '84 Lincoln Town Car with a factory CB.

Sadly, I see a LOT of BOF RWD cars crushed flat and headed for the shredder.
