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.

Logos come and go, and in the case of the famed Chrysler Pentastar, it's on its way back out. The well-known five-sided emblem, which sits prominently atop the massive Chrysler Technical Center complex in Auburn Hills, MI, is officially going to be phased out now that the company has united with Fiat and formed the new Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

As a nearly 50-year-old icon, though, the fate of the Pentastar has been deeply intertwined with Chrysler's history. Hemmings has an excellent recap of that history, from its development in 1962 by a Chrysler ad agency through to its temporary discontinuation during the disastrous marriage between the American company and Daimler-Benz, and then on to its revival during the time the automaker regained its independence.
If you've been a fan of Chrysler and its brands over the years, you're going to want to give this piece a read. Head over and take a look.
Fiat is one step closer to completing a merger with Chrysler after exercising an option to acquire an additional 3.3 percent of the Auburn Hills-based automaker today. Automotive News reports that Fiat now controls 68.49-percent of Chrysler, which is up almost 10 percent since we last heard news of this deal back in February when Fiat talking to various banks to raise more capital in order to complete the acquisition.

The article says that Fiat is still able to increase its stake in Chrysler up to 75 percent over the next 12 months, but it sounds like CEO Sergio Marchinonne would rather purchase the remaining shares from VEBA - the retiree benefits trust - sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, the two sides still seem far from an agreement on a fair price for the rest of Chrysler, as Fiat has them valued at $4.2 billion compared to the $10.3 billion estimate from the unions that currently own the remaining stake in Chrysler.
With the Car and Driver Ten Best decided, the North American Car and Truck of the Year finalists announced and Cadillac, Ram and Subaru chalking up wins with Motor Trend, it's fair to say that the automotive awards season is in full swing. The next set of trophies to be handed out will be from Ward's Automotive, which has announced the winners of its 2014 10 Best Engines.
The latest contest was marked by the widespread emergence of diesel power and the continued success of turbocharged engines. There was even an electric motor on this year's list. In fact, only three of the ten winners were naturally aspirated and only two winners returned from last year.
"We weren't looking to throw the bums out, as they might say about an election. We were just really impressed with the flood of new powertrains," said Ward's Automotive Editor-in-Chief Drew Winter. Those new powertrains include the 83-kilowatt electric motor from the Fiat 500e, the 1.0-liter, EcoBoost three-cylinder from the Ford Fiesta and the 2.0-liter turbodiesel from the Chevrolet Cruze.
