THE CHRYSLER LEBARON

The name 'LeBaron' first became closely associated with Chrysler in the 1930s when the eponymous coachbuilder bodied some of the most memorable CG Imperials of the era—cars that continue today to be among the most sought after by collectors. The name would appear again in earnest in 1957 and appear on Chryslers until 1995.

The mid-1980s LeBaron based on Chrysler's ubiquitous 'K' platform was offered in a full range of body styles including sedan, coupe, wagon, and convertible. Of those the convertible, specifically the rear 1983-1986 Town & Country Convertible of which only 1,105 were built, is the most well-known and regarded. With its faux wood grain exterior trim, the LeBaron Town & Country Convertible has made memorable appearances in pop culture classics such as Ferris Bueller's Day Off and Seinfeld.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This rare Town & Country convertible is a rare example that has remained in remarkable original condition. Featuring the optional 2.2-liter turbocharged engine, this black convertible is one of just 501 examples produced in 1986, the final year of production. Harkening back to the pre-war 'woody' convertibles, these faux-wood clad examples typify American automotive styling in the 1980s.

This LeBaron has evaded the fate of many K-cars and remains an all-original example in lovely condition with no visible signs of oxidation. The innovative all-digital dash is in fully operable condition and the light interior is seemingly devoid of discoloration.

This rare and extremely original convertible is an interesting glimpse at an early attempt at retro-modern styling and is presented in its original, unmolested condition. Few cars capture the '80s American automotive zeitgeist as these 501 convertibles and this particular LeBaron offers a rare opportunity to attain an original and solid example.
