1978 Chrysler LeBaron Town & Country wagon in very, very nice original condition with less than 70k miles offered for the first time at NO Reserve. 318 cid V8 (5.2) litre with working Lean-Burn electronic ignition, power steering, power brakes, cruise control, intermittant wipers, power drivers seat, power windows, power door locks and adjustable rear air shocks. Exterior finish has very few blemishes with exception of slight paint bubbling on lower corner of passenger-front door. Woodgrain trim is in very presentable condition with minimal discoloration or warping. Paint and glass are in near perfect condition, as is the Pumpkin Orange leather upholstery which shows minimal wear on the driver's seat. Some sun fade of the carpet in rear cargo area is apparent. Sagging headliner has been replaced in factory-correct color and material. Exterior chrome shows some speckling but is in overall very good condition as are the rubber bumper inserts. Whitewall tires are in excellent condition with less than 2k miles since installed. The air conditioning does not blow cold and I have not attempted to have the problem diagnosed. All fluids have been flushed and all filters changed within the last 1k miles. A full set of rubber floor mats are included; they were removed during the process of taking photographs. This Chrysler has been supremely reliable and is a pleasure to drive. Prospective buyers are welcome to view the vehicle in person at its location near downtown Columbus, Ohio. I have owned the vehicle approximately 6 years, having purchased it from a vintage auto broker in central Ohio who purchased it from an estate sale in the area.

$1.8 million is spent each year to maintain GM's fleet of 600 production and concept cars.
When at least two of the Detroit Three were on the verge of death a few years back, one of the tough questions that was asked of Ford, General Motors and Chrysler execs - outside of why execs were still taking private planes to meetings - was why each company maintained huge archives of old production and concept vehicles. GM, for example, had an 1,100-vehicle collection when talk of a federal bailout began.

Kevyn Orr, the new emergency city manager of Detroit, has a history with one of Michigan's most famous residents: Chrysler. Governor Rick Snyder (at right) appointed Orr to the position yesterday with the belief that Detroit needs outside assistance to right the city's mounting financial woes. Orr (at left), a partner with the Jones Day law firm, will begin work on March 25 and receive $275,000 a year for his work. While state officials believe the new city manager will be able to complete his duties in 18 months, the contract is technically open-ended.
The 54-year-old attorney helped steer Chrysler through its 2009 bankruptcy, earning $700 per hour for his efforts. He was also instrumental in convincing the courts to allow Chrysler to shutter 789 dealerships in a single month. Orr says he's aware that his efforts won't have made him any friends in Southern Michigan.
The United Auto Workers and Chrysler recently sponsored 92 works of art created by 50 of the automaker's unionized and salaried employees for the 2013-14 Artists at Work Exhibition, the ninth such show, which recognizes the creative process required to make art and manufacture vehicles. Chrysler says the event is "the country's only juried art show sponsored by a major corporation and a labor union." Unfortunately, the exhibit is not open to the public, but we have images to share of the winning pieces as well as other interesting exhibits in the gallery above.
"Art and manufacturing have more in common than you might think," says Keith Mickens, Chrysler-UAW National Training Center co-director from the UAW. "The creative process involved in producing a memorable image on a canvas can be used to help build quality vehicles on an assembly line."
A diverse range of art forms are showcased, from metal sculptures to ceramics to photography to paintings and more. Four Detroit-area professional artists narrowed down over 600 submissions to the 92 works of art that were shown at the exhibit, then awarded "Best of Show" prizes to three employees for their work (the first three images in our gallery) and selected 11 employees for honorable mentions. The overall winner is the sculpture above by Joseph Aiuto, titled "Childhood Anxiety."
