    I've got a 1988 Chrysler Lebaron for sale. It was my dad's car until it spun a connecting rod bearing and stopped running. He gave it to me and bought a new van. I replaced the rod bearings and luckily the crank wasn't damaged so it ran fine. It has a slight cam bearing knock, so I'll fix that soon. It runs fine other than that. The engine only has 40k miles on a rebuild and 40k miles on the turbo. The engine is a 2.2L turbo 4-banger that is suprisingly quick. A little slow off the line, but will kick ass at-speed. It does need a little body work but not very difficult work. I'm going to try and fix it myself, but if I do then it will need to be painted. This is a good car and ran fine until the bearing problem. I just did a tune up with new Rapidfire plugs, new wires, new cap, new rotor, and new timing belt cover. Good battery, tires, etc. Needs a headliner also. This will be a good car once finished, but needs a little work now. Should be an easy fixer. The car has 112k on it. I'm asking $3000 OBO(note the OBO part!). Here are some pictures of it:

    Have you tried other forums and online auto sellers?

    Yeah, but no bites yet. Seems everyone has a problem with it being ugly. It's the kind of car that you either like or you hate. I think the people that like them are the only ones that own them.
