Today I ran across this ad on a Facebook group I’m in, Finding Future Classic Cars. A ’79 LeBaron, from the early Iacocca period. Resplendant in green, I was immediately smitten. And then I realized this one was freaking loaded. With power moonroof! And soft Corinthian leather!
As the ad on Marketplace related: “1979 Chrysler LeBaron hard top coupe in very good condition and one owner. This beautiful vintage car has very low mileage and has been stored in a temperature-controlled garage. It just passed PA inspection in May 2023.”
“There is a rust spot near door by hardtop (see photo). Features include the following: power sunroof, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power driver’s side seat, Corinthian leather seats (front and back), 318 engine, posi-traction, 4 new tires (summer 2022).”
“In spring 2022: new belts, hoses, fuel pump, and tailpipe installed, cooling system flushed, cleaned, and refilled, fuel tank and carburetor cleaned and flushed. Car cover and original wire wheel hubcaps included. $10,000 or best offer. Serious inquires only. Located in Brownsville, PA.”
I believe the seller has that “yout” affliction known as ‘I believe five-digit odometer-itis.’ I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a well-maintained 115K mile car. Heck, My 2000 Town Car had 184K on it when I sold it two years ago, and the seats, albeit showing wear, still looked pretty good: no tears, and not a stitch had let go.
Not sure if it’s worth $10K but it sure is sharp! I miss coupes. Actually, I miss cars! If you have an interest, seek the seller out.
