Re: my $400 lebaron conv :) also my first mopar
There were about 500 LeBaron's built with the V6 5-speed option (at least from what literature and ex-ChryCo engineers have said). Thankfully, the 91-93 Daytona has the same center console as the LeBaron, so you can use one of them for your shifter surround. Don't get one from a '90 as it sits higher.
Cars with the a543 transmission you need would include the LeBaron, Daytona, Spirit, and Shadow/Duster. I don't think many Spirits came with the V6 5-speed option either, so you should probably focus on finding a Daytona or Shadow or Duster.
If it helps, the V6 became an option for the Daytona in '90. I'm not sure about the Shadow/Duster, but I assume it was around the same time.
