Chris Cord's 1980 season body work would be the most
radically styled "PHASE" seen. He took a Phase 5 body, then
cut large slotted openings on either side of the long 3"
hood tunnel/bulge to serve as exits for the radiator-cooled
air. This diverted heat away from the engine and helped to
create a "suction" effect under the car for better
handling. The hood tunnel was very tall to clear the four
down-draft carbs. The rear of the hood matched the angle of
the sloped winshield, and sat just a few inches from it.
The door extensions had large scoops in them for the side
mounted oil coolers. Each rear fender had a large slotted
opening on top to serve as an exit for the side-mounted
radiator-cooled air. Rear wheels were 19" tall, the largest
ever seen on a monza.
