1985 CHRYSLER WOODIE CONVERTIBLE
TOWN AND COUNTRY TURBO
The Wade Williams Collection
I am selling my 40 year classic and special
interest car collection, from Corvettes to
This offering is a 1985 Chrysler Turbo
Town and Country Woodie Convertible with a special
feature. It belonged to a jet plane mechanic at the
old TWA overhaul base here in Kansas City. Mark rebuilt
the turbo and transmission making it more powerful than
the stock vehicle from Chrysler. It's excellent on gas
and also is fast.
I added the car to my collection on January 8, 2003
and it has been stored inside since and driven from
time to time. The gas tank has been cleaned and coated and the
fuel lines replaced..
I added a "Continental kit" on the rear of the car which
harks back to the 40's sporty style. . It is a beautiful addition and
makes the car longer in the rear. The classic louvered hood rams more air
into the turbo and gives it a racier look. The white convertible top and
boot are in excellent condition. The white exterior color was the most popular. It has chrome
wire hubcaps . This car is unique and you will not see one unless you see them in the movies
(Planes-Train & Automobiles) or TV ( Seinfeld ) or happen to live down the street.
The leather seats are not torn. They could use a good cleaning or
a leather spray coating which would make them look new. The carpets are fine. I believe all the
accessories work but am not positive. The AC may need a charge. In any event the cars is drives well
and turn heads whever it goes. It's great on gas
In the four years Chrysler made these Town and Country woodie convertibles
a little over 3000 were made. Few remain. They fell victim to the newer J-bodied
GTC convertibles with 6 cylinder engines. These unique and rare K-bodied convertibles
are becoming highly collectible and are still within a reasonable price range. They will
double and triple in value in a few years. Definately a classic already and a fun car .
As an investment this is the time to buy one. It is a buyer's market. Buy it for Xmas,
enjoy it in the spring.
There is a low reserve on this car. I want to sell it. It will sell at a bargain to a
lucky buyer.This one is much less than others recently advertised and is more desirable than
a 1983 model.
The winning bidder must make a non-refundable $ 500.00 deposit via Pay Pal within 49 hours
of winning. The balance must be paid withing seven (7) days of the close of the auction either by
cash or bank wire prior to picking up the car. Buyer must arrange to pick up the car in Kansas City.
All sales final. Car sold "as-is" with no warranty or
guarantee of any kind.
The car can be inspected in Kansas City prior to the final
bid by contacting the seller. One the car is sold it belongs
to the highest bidder . It is not sold "on approval" and cannot
be returned. Buyer must arrange shipping from Kansas City.
This car is a bargain, a classic and well worth considering.

Chrysler is recalling 780,000 of its Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans from the 2010 to 2014 model years due to the possibility of circuits overheating, which can lead to a fire. Of the 780,000 total vans being recalled, Chrysler estimates that 644,850 are in the US, 106,980 are in Canada, 8,009 are in Mexico, and 20,638 are in other markets. All of the affected vehicles were built between August 25, 2010 and October 31, 2013.
Chrysler's engineers discovered that beverage spills or exposure to moisture (from rain, snow, car washes, and the like) were linked to circuits shorting in the window switch assembly. Short circuits can overheat, and thus, cause a fire.
Chrysler will contact owners and let them know when they may schedule service, at which point, the window switches will be replaced. In the interim, the automaker says that owners may visit their dealers after May 14 to have the switches disconnected.
Electric cars may be reaching their time in the sun with successes like the Tesla Model S, but the basic concept goes back to practically beginning of motoring. EVs also saw a brief renaissance in the 1970s when automakers were trying find a way around rising fuel prices. This 1979 Chrysler ETV-1 concept for sale on eBay Motors is a great example from that era.
Built in 1979, designers hoped the ETV-1 would preview what an electric car would look like in 1985. The base price was slated to start at $6,400, or the rough equivalent of $20,536, which seems like an optimistic price. General Electric created the ETV-1's powertrain, and Chrysler was in charge of styling. At the time, the Department of Energy called it "the first advanced four-passenger subcompact experimental electric car."
While it seems ancient compared to today's EVs, the ETV-1 featured regenerative braking and a computer-controlled electric motor. Chrysler reported a 100-mile range at 45 miles per hour with two passengers in the car. The range fell to 75 miles with four passengers. Acceleration was not brisk with Chrysler claiming the run to 30 mph in 9 seconds. Power was stored in 18 lead-acid batteries, and a full charge took 10 hours from a home outlet.
It's not really a secret that the city of Detroit is in lots and lots of trouble. Even with an emergency manager working to guide it through bankruptcy, a number of the city's institutions remain in very serious danger. One of the most notable is the Detroit Institute of Arts, a 658,000-square-foot behemoth of art that counts works from Van Gogh, Picasso, Gauguin and Rembrandt (not to mention a version of Rodin's iconic "The Thinker," shown above) as part of its permanent collection.
Throughout the bankruptcy, the DIA has been under threat, with art enthusiasts, historians and fans of the museum concerned that its expansive collection - valued between $454 and $867 million by Christie's - could be sold by the city to help square its $18.5-billion debt.
Now, though, Detroit's hometown automakers could be set to step up and help save the renowned museum. According to a report from The Detroit News, the charitable arms of General Motors, Ford and Chrysler could be set to donate $25 million as part of a DIA-initiated campaign, called the "grand bargain." As part of the deal, the DIA would seek $100 million in corporate donations as part of a larger attempt at putting together an $816-million package that would be paid to city pension funds over 20 years. Such a move would protect the city's art collection from being sold off.
