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.

Automakers the world over are striving to find ways to make their models more efficient, and Chrysler has a solution for some versions of the 2015 Chrysler 200 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee (2014 model shown). The Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder in the 200 and the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 in the Cherokee are getting a slight boost later this year thanks to the addition of Chrysler's Engine Stop-Start system as standard equipment. The company predicts modest gains - a three-percent improvement in fuel economy and a three percent reduction in CO2 emissions with the new tech compared to without it. While it's not much, those who sit in traffic a lot may see a difference.

Chrysler's stop/start system uses a high-speed starter motor to restart the vehicle in a claimed a third of a second. It works by detecting when the vehicle comes to a stop and turning off the engine. A more powerful battery maintains all of the model's accessories while it sits. When the driver lets off the brake, the car starts up again to drive away. There is even a button in the cabin to turn the ESS off, if desired.
The Jeep will be the first to receive ESS in the third quarter of this year to coincide with the start of production of the 2015 model-year version. The 200 will follow in the fourth quarter as a rolling change in production.

The 2015 200 is the automotive equivalent of an ugly duckling turning into a swan.
In 2004, Chrysler's fullsize offerings were the lamentable Concorde and 300M - a pair of bloated, plasticky barges that hadn't received significant attention since before the dawn of the new millennium. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, Chrysler unveiled its new 300, which rode on the bones of a Mercedes-Benz E-Class and had the look of a Rolls-Royce with a thug-life upbringing. It was cool.
Chrysler's Jefferson North Assembly Plant opened in 1992 for production of the first Jeep Grand Cherokee, but in the subsequent years, the Detroit plant has gone on to produce some of the company's biggest SUVs including the Jeep Commander and Dodge Durango. Earlier this week, the plant produced its five-millionth SUV, which, fittingly, was a Grand Cherokee.
Celebrating the plant's five-millionth unit, the silver 2014 Grand Cherokee was promptly donated to the USO. In addition to this milestone SUV, Chrysler also had a near-perfect 1993-95 ZJ Grand Cherokee on hand for the photo op. Scroll down for the Chrysler press release as well as a video showing some of the speeches from the celebration.
