THIS IS BEING RE-LISTED DUE TO A NON-PAYING BUYER. Do us all a favor and don't bid if you are playing games and are a dead-beat. This process is a pain to get cleared up and re-listed.If you don't have any feedback or negative feedback I will cancel your bid unless you get approval from me prior to bidding.
*This old car runs and drives. The transmission has 20,000 miles since rebuild. New engine and transmission mounts and steering links at transmission overhaul.
Everything works except radio/cassette. Interior not worn out or faded. (photo is of the driver's seat)
Several dents and dings, none serious. Some loss of clear-coat, especially on back.Top has a couple of cracks and age-related issues around edges. The old white duct tape makes it look worse than it really is.Top works and is fully-functional. I will add photos of the top down tomorrow. I also have a flawless cover boot...these are worth $150 alone. I will get a photo of this tomorrow as well.
Backstory; This is my wife's car which was her daily driver. She inherited her Dad's Lebaron and we bought another Red Lebaron, both convertibles. So, this one, with higher mileage was moved outside the carport for a couple of years. My son's car broke down and he needed a car to drive to work so we loaned him this one. On the way home one day, the oil light came on. Bottom-line...it was out of oil. I filled it with oil and cranked it up. Oil was pouring from the front crankshaft seal. I managed to get it home (6 miles). I replaced the crank seal, timing belt, belt tensioners, serpentine and V belt, changed oil and filter. Engine cranked and ran fine but had a knock. I pulled the oil pan and found #2 rod bearing had spun. I polished the crank journals and replaced all rod inserts. This helped but #2 still knocks when the engine is up to temp. Oil pressure is great, even at idle.
The engine doesn't leak and doesn't smoke and the oil stays clean. .but it knocks. We have been driving it gently for a couple of years now and only occasionally.
The car is still licensed and insured. .I drove it 25 miles yesterday (May 1).
The car is priced as IF the engine didn't run at all.
In fact, this engine could be repaired or replaced with a junkyard engine and you would have an affordable, decent, sport convertible. If you just drove it locally and was easy on it, it would probably run a long time as-is. (Has worked for us).
Since the car has been sitting out in the yard a while and we have had a lot of rain, it smells musty inside and needs to be aired out (drive with the top down!)
Tires are safe but well-worn.
Not a cream puff but not a beater either.
The wife just got a PT Cruiser convertible so that makes convertible #5. So, time for this one to go. * Unless you live in Central Arkansas, I would recommend a car-hauler to get it home. There is no guarantee that it will get you home otherwise. (But, it might?)
