This is a beautiful, low mileage, very good original condition, turbo LeBaron Town & Country woody station wagon, with the Mark Cross leather interior! This car looks, runs, and drives great while coddling the driver and passengers in plush comfort. And it is quick yet economical and fun to drive with the 2.2 liter Chrysler turbo engine.
This LeBaron has the wood trim package, the Mark Cross leather interior package, the turbo engine, automatic transmission, AM/FM radio, cargo cover, rear window wiper, tilt wheel, and power windows, power drivers' seat, power locks, power steering, and power brakes. All of these features work great. The air conditioning comes on but I have not used it and it is likely low on coolant, as the switch cycles. The turbo gives quick acceleration, and the car runs, drives, shifts, and stops great, with no known problems or repair needs. There may be a slow battery draw, I disconnect the battery when the car is sitting for a period. The tires are about one year old and have less than 1000 miles on them!
The body is rust free, and appears to have no body repairs. The paint appears to be all original and is in good shape, but could use a good polishing to bring back a better shine. The wood is excellent, with very few chips or scratches, the largest being on the drivers' door (see photo) and some discoloration on the framing, primarily on the rear hatch. Even the rocker panels are clean! There is a minor small bump on the hood, with no broken paint, and which is barely noticeable unless you look at it in just the right light and at the right angle. The wire wheel covers are in very good condition, with minor scuffing.
The beautiful and comfortable Mark Cross leather interior is really incredible! The leather is in great condition, including the embossed Mark Cross emblems on the front and rear seat backs. The dash pad has no cracks, and the headliner is not sagging, and the carpet looks great and is not worn. The ash tray has a broken corner (see photo) but I will include a replacement ash tray. Some of the satin silver trim surfaces show aging, but are a very minor and repairable appearance item that could be easily addressed. The cargo area carpet, trim, and stainless ribs are all in very good shape, and the spare and jack are like new!
Overall this beautiful LeBaron Town & Country looks great in its original Cream Crystal Coat paint and light/medium tan Mark Cross leather interior, probably the best color combination for this car! The Chrysler turbo motor is dependable, economical, easy to service, and is quick and fun to drive. It is an affordable, practical, stylish, luxurious, and very 80s classic!
I have clear title in my name. The car is garaged, and can stay garaged temporarily while you arrange to pick up or transport the car. I will release the car after payment in full funds have cleared.
I have described this LeBaron as best I can; it is sold as is, where is. Please ask any questions before you bid.

"The minivan package has always been a sacred thing ... it's basically a life tool" - Ralph Gilles
The stalwart duo of Chrysler minivans will be reduced by half in the vehicle's next generation, with the Dodge Grand Caravan likely going away in favor of a new people-mover-type vehicle. And while the reworked Chrysler Town & Country shouldn't radically shake up the usual minivan formula, a new report from Automotive News suggests that some new technologies and thoughtful updates are in the cards for our Canadian-built van.

It became the flame that started the fire of belief in the next life of Chrysler.
I just sold a car. Nothing new. Millions do it every day. But my car was a 1995 Dodge Viper, so maybe it was a bit more unique since just 12,000 were built. And like others selling a car that's been a part of the family for close to 20 years, this was a confluence of emotions for me. I was sad to see it go, but happy to have the cash and one less big, shiny, under-utilized object in my life.
I love road trips. Honestly, one of the best parts about this job is the freedom we're given to experience the open road, whether at new car launches or while bombing around with whatever we're testing on our home turf. But the longer-form road trip is equally special to me, and it's something I'm always eager to do. Air travel stinks - that's not news. So if I can drive, I will. And without our dear TSA to fight with, I can pack all the chainsaws and gallon jugs of chocolate milk that I want.
So when it came time to attend the 2014 New York Auto Show this past April, I thought, "Why not drive?" Typically, the route from downtown Detroit to Manhattan is something like 10 hours, but I decided to bake some extra time into the journey and planned for the vast majority of my travels to be off the beaten path. Doing the "avoid expressways" route allows you to see parts of America you've never encountered before, and to meet people with stories and opinions that you've never heard. It's a great way to travel if you have the time. There's something uniquely serene about seeing the country in a great car on a great road.
Let's talk about that "great car" line for a moment. Ideally, long stretches of backroads are best done in something fast, comfortable and involving - a Porsche 911 comes to mind. Or, another school of thought says to pick some fun little spitfire like the always-lovely Mazda MX-5 Miata, for top-down, sun-drenched fun. But for this trip, I chose the 2015 Chrysler 200, in fully loaded S guise with all-wheel drive. Now, settle down; I'm not about to compare it to either the Porsche or Mazda. The point I'm making is this: after 1,500 test miles under my butt, I can emphatically state that the new 200 is indeed a great car in its own right.
