This was the first year that America had seen a luxurious domestic convertible since Cadillac back in 1976. Presenting the 1982 Chrysler LeBaron convertible “Mark Cross Edition” and it’s very rare. Nice straight body panels and comes with every conceivable option available at that time plus a CD player. Reportedly owned by a collector that passed on and the executor of his estate was instructed to sell off his classic cars.   Pictures speak pretty clearly of it’s condition and is supported by a  clean CarFax with no accidents and 61,000 original miles.

 

Most of the “K” series Chrysler and Dodge lines, including the LeBarrons and the Maserati TCs, were powered by the 2.2 ltr. turbo engine. This particular car is one of the few exceptions and sports the super rare 2.6 ltr. “HEMI” naturally aspirated engine which offers an intensely increased power-band. Runs, shifts and drives as no other!

 

Has lived almost it’s entire life in California, mostly in the Coachella Valley, until it moved to the Seattle area in 2017. I believe it was at that time she suffered a tear on the lt. r. corner of the top while being transported north. Well, the previous owner never got around to it, being as it was stored inside with parade boot on. So, there is a brand new OEM Haartz Pinpoint top with rear window, cables and pads ordered and is due 6/19 and will be drop shipped directly to the winning bidder. (order confirmation # provided) The only other blemishes she’s known to have are a little bolster and armrest wear which is typical on any 60K mile original automobile and a small seam split on drivers seat, (just appeared) rt. ft speaker grill, all clear in pix. Also, exhaust is solid.

 

This is quite probably the finest example of this iconic Mark Cross that you will find on the market with plenty of upside potential as the years pass. And, at a very attractive price point.
