   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
Chryslers.

      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.

NHTSA investigating Chrysler for airbags, ignition switches

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 16:01:00 EST

Chrysler is being targeted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a pair of actions that focus on over 1.2 million Jeeps, minivans and crossovers.
The first is a "preliminary investigation" that focuses on an airbag issue afflicting the Jeep Commander built in model years 2006 and 2007 and Grand Cherokee from 2005 to 2006. In total, 700,000 vehicles could potentially be affected. It's not entirely clear what the airbag issue is, with The Detroit Free Press simply stating that the restraint systems in the affected Jeeps may be "faulty."
The other investigation is what's called a "recall query" and it covers a problem that General Motors should be familiar with. In this case, there could be a problem with the ignition switches of 525,000 vehicles, ranging from 2008 to 2010 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans, to the 2008 to 2010 Dodge Journey crossover. Again, it's not entirely clear what sort of behavior prompted the 32 complaints that NHTSA has received on these vehicles.

Chrysler appoints new heads of Alfa Romeo and Ram

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 10:30:00 EST

Chrysler has announced to two key appointments to its senior leadership, both of them taking immediate effect. First up is Reid Bigland, who has been named head of the Alfa Romeo brand for North America. Bigland has served until now as head of the Ram Truck brand, a portfolio he now hands over to Robert Hegbloom, who had served until now as its director.
As a result of the appointments, both Bigland and Hegbloom will take up seats on Chrysler's NAFTA Leadership Team, and Bigland will also join the Fiat Chrysler Group Executive Council - the highest decision-making body in the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles empire.
As per Sergio Marchionne's leadership style, Bigland will continue to serve in two major capacities, maintaining his role as president and CEO of Chrysler Canada. Other senior executives who hold multiple key portfolios include Harald Wester (who serves as the group's Chief Technology Officer and also overseas Alfa Romeo, Maserati and Abarth), Olivier Francois (group Chief Marketing Officer and head of the Fiat brand) and Michael Manley (head of the Asia-Pacific region and the Jeep brand).

Chrysler called out over lackluster Ram Runner by racer who helped develop it

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:52:00 EST

Fans of off-roading and desert blasting might recall that Chrysler offers an aftermarket conversion that can turn a Ram 1500 into a road-legal desert racer, called the Ram Runner. The kit, sold through Mopar, includes some significant suspension upgrades, body tweaks and a brawnier cat-back exhaust for the truck's 5.7-liter V8.
Considering all of this, comparisons with the almighty Ford F-150 SVT Raptor are common. Among the off-road community, that makes these two a sort of Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang for people that prefer driving on dirt. In the Race-Dezert forum, the discussion as to which truck was better was proceeding as normal - Ram fans said their piece and Ford fans said theirs. Then, a man named Kent Kroeker offered up his two cents.
See, Kroeker is a Baja racer, and the man that helped develop the Ram Runner. Despite his association with the truck, though, he had some less than kind words for Chrysler and the Ram Runner.
