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.

Trademark filings can be a first alert in the auto industry that something is coming. For example, Lamborghini trademarked Aventador before we saw its supercar, and Chevrolet did the same thing with Z28. Other times, an automaker files to protect a name and never does anything with it. Chrysler is dredging up a brand from the past by filing a US request for "Rebel." The name is specifically for "motor vehicles, namely automobiles, trucks, vans, sport utility vehicles and structural parts therefor," according to Ignitionist quoting the filing.

In the US, Rebel was previously used on some American Motors Corporation models. It even spawned a muscle car version called the Machine (pictured above). Chrysler eventually bought AMC when it bowed out of the auto industry in 1987.
Chrysler's plans for the name are a complete mystery at the moment. Although, it probably won't be a midsize sedan like the original. That just seems too unlikely given the brand's current, established lineup. Rebel seems like a fantastic name for the performance trim of a vehicle, though. The Jeep Renegade Rebel has a nice ring to it, and a Ram 1500 Rebel pickup could also work. We're going to have to wait and see what's in store for the moniker. Let us know in Comments what model you think would fit the Rebel name.
If there is one thing that should be remembered when looking at quarterly and annual earnings, it's that the headline numbers rarely tell the whole story when it comes to an automaker's health. Chrysler's first-quarter earnings are just such an example.

Yes, the Auburn Hills-based manufacturer lost $690 million, which is quite a large sum of money. The reasons for the loss, according to Chrysler, were "Unfavorable infrequent items," which includes a $504 million payment to rid itself of the debts it took on for prepaying the UAW's VEBA healthcare trust. Chrysler was also hit with a $672 million charge to the UAW, which was part of a deal that allowed Fiat to purchase the remaining shares of Chrysler owned by the VEBA.
Ignoring those one-time deals, the first quarter was quite a successful one for Chrysler. It would have made $486 million if you erased the merger costs, which would have been a year-over-year increase of $320 million. Even more promising is the fact that Chrysler snagged the largest increase in market share of any automaker during Q1 at 1.1 percent, bringing its overall share to 12.7 percent of the US market. Chrysler saw a 30-percent improvement in sales of trucks and SUVs, along with an 11-percent increase in year-over-year sales and a 23-percent increase in revenue, to $19 billion.
Automotive News reports Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has issued a written apology for his comments regarding his decision to stick with an Italian engine for the upcoming Alfa Romeo 4C. As you may recall, back in January, Marchionne was quoted as saying, "I cannot come up with a schlock product, I just won't. I won't put an American engine into that car. With all due respect to my American friends, it has to be a wop engine." The CEO penned an apology to the Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition for using the racial epithet, saying that he made the comment in jest. Marchionne also said he realizes his remarks were unacceptable.
ONE VOICE, an organization aimed at fighting discrimination and stereotyping of Italian Americans, thanked Marchionne, Chrysler and Fiat for the apology. Marchionne is an Italian-born Canadian citizen, and he's gotten in trouble for other comments in the past. In 2011, he called high interest rates Chrysler was paying to the Canadian government "shyster rates." He apologized a day later.
