Body Types and Designations


This page lists the body designations of all vehicles considered MiniMopars by this website.  These translations do not apply to Diamond-Star Motors cars (Laser, Talon, Eclipse).

Body Types

Below are the body style designations for each line of vehicle models.  I have provided the model years that each body was in production.  In 1990, all remaining platforms got an 'A' prefix.  So the A-body became the AA-body, etc.

C 1988 - 1993 Chrysler New Yorker, Dodge Dynasty
E   Chrysler New Yorker Turbo, Dodge 600, Plymouth Caravelle
