This 1986 Chrysler LeBaron convertible is far more than just an affordable classic. This has a great color combo, loaded interior, and a terrific premium attitude worthy of the top point of the pentastar brand. And as you look at all the details and paperwork, you'll also discover an incredible survivor.
This kind of LeBaron made Lee Iacocca proud. The American convertible was thought to have been dead by the 1980s. He was able to bring it back on the versatile K platform, and this was the pinnacle of that grand design. It's a premium LeBaron that pays tribute to the coachbuilder name with a distant body where the bumpers hugged the form and the proportions remained sporty. As a true American, there was room for tasteful brightwork on the special waterfall grille, wire wheel covers, window trim, and the sleek panel over the rear lights. The factory-correct Cordovan Maroon shows all the right signs of being the original factory application. It retains an impressive gloss 35 years later because the odometer is believed to reflect the car's full actual mileage. That would mean averaging about 750 miles annually, and so you know this one spent more time in the garage than on a commute. So while the value price leaves room for any improvements you may want to make, this one already has the right style and pedigree you want in a LeBaron.
The white convertible top has a premium look against that dark maroon, but for true distinction, you'll want to take it down. The maroon interior harmonizes with the tone of the exterior for a terrific upper-class look. And you can even put the soft boot in place to have a nearly seamless color coordination inside and out. And the overall condition of the interior reaffirms the feeling of a seldom-used and well-respected car. This is loaded with the best factory features, like cruise control, power locks, a tilt steering column, the factory premium AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) Plus, a power convertible top and power windows are there to make sure you never have to leave the driver's seat to open this drop-top to the world.
The numbers-matching 2.2-liter motor is a hardy powerplant that's famous for being the foundation for Chrysler front-wheel-drive cars. And these premium ones were even built with a turbocharger for extra power. Out on the road, the K-Car origins make this convertible feel light and nimble. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front disc brakes all remind you this was built for easy touring comfort.
The sale comes complete with great paperwork, like the window sticker and owner's manual packet. This is a premium drop-top that's also part of a proud American car history. And since we don't get to see too many of these anymore, you know you want to hurry on this well-priced survivor. Call today!!!
