1980 Chrysler LeBaron
In 1920 LeBaron Incorporated was introduced as an American design business. During this era a majority of the prestige automotive builders would supply their high end customers with a running chassis that did not include a body. The buyers would then take their vehicle to a coachbuilder who would fit them with custom metal work to complete the car. LeBaron got into the coach building business and although there were a few hiccups they proved to be successful. In 1926 it was bought by Briggs manufacturing and moved to Detroit where they began supplying the bodies for Chrysler, Deusenberg, Packard and Cadillac. With their successful sales Chrysler decided it was time to bring everything in house and purchased Briggs and therefore LeBaron. In '55 Chrysler released the luxury Imperial as a separate make with the Imperial LeBaron being the top of the line. It remained tied to Imperial until 1977 when LeBaron became its own model under the Chrysler name. They were made for 3 different generations but looking at them throughout the years it is remarkable how much the look would change up even within those generations. This 1980 Chrysler LeBaron Medallion belongs to the 1st generation which spanned across 4 years. These cars were reskinned for 1980 receiving the waterfall grill, redesigned headlights, vertical taillights, crisp lines, and a new roofline. With its Black paint, chrome accents and pinstriping it was clear this was a luxury car to have. The Black paint on this car has a nice shine and it has been repainted 1 time. It is paired with a new vinyl top which also extends down to the tops of the door. All of the lights are in good shape and all working properly. The wheels are the originals with wire hubcaps and thin white wall Hankook Optimo tires.
Under that long hood is the original 318 ci LA V8 motor. It fires off smoothly and doesn't smoke. The car really is a smooth driver that seamlessly glides down the road. The motor has a stock appearance and has been well maintained. It comes with a bundle of receipts and it is clear it has never been neglected. The AC system as well as the power brakes (front disc) have been serviced recently with the AC receiving a charge at the end of 2021. It also got a new battery at that time and in 2020 the water pump, belts, hoses, and plugs were all replaced. The power steering system functions properly as well does everything else on the car. If the year was 1980 and you wanted a luxury cruiser, the LeBaron had to be on your list.
The interior is done in Gray and the upholstery is all in good condition throughout as well as the door panels and headliner. It is very spacious with plenty of room for both front and rear passengers. Everything has been kept very stock except for the addition of a Planet Audio AM/FM/Aux/Bluetooth stereo and new rear speakers. They were professionally installed in late 2021 and look right at home. The dash pad is in good condition and the dash has a stock layout. The original gauges work properly and sit in their original wood grain accent trim. Those wood grain accents are also found on the door panels and steering wheel.
The car comes with a lot of documentation include receipts, the original manual, an original LeBaron brochure, the original window sticker and even a copy of the original title. According to those documents the vehicle was original purchase at an Ohio dealership in April of 1980 for $9,356. The 2nd owner in Ohio purchased the car in 2020. The current/3rd owner purchased the vehicle from them so it spent all of its life in Ohio before coming to Texas.
This luxury classic is being offered up for the very affordable $7,900.00!
