The Simpson’s has been on television since 1989, but the true make and model of Homer Simpson’s generic-looking pink sedan was only just recently revealed on the latest episode the long-running series, Pork and Beans.
Simpson’s car, it turns out, is a 1986 Plymouth Junkerolla, making a mythical Mopar product of some sort. Jalopnik thinks the car could be a take on the Chrysler Reliant due to the mid 1980s model year, but previous theories on Simpson’s four door have included the 1973 Plymouth Valiant or a Dodge Aspen sedan.
The car, easily recognizable by its pink paint job and signature front fender dent, has been with the family for the entire duration of the series (save for that time he sold it in exchange for an electric car). It’s one of the two vehicles the family owns, with the other being Marge’s orange station wagon, which some fans speculate is a Chevelle wagon. We’d say it also looks similar to a 1980 Dodge Aspen wagon, however.
So if you’re a Mopar fan and love The Simpson’s, you can rest extra easy tonight knowing Homer’s just as ‘Mopar or No Car’ as you are.
