Talking WTB Late 80's Charger/Turismo, Shadow/Sundance

Looking to buy 1985-1987 Dodge Charger/Plymouth Turismo non-turbo. (Yes I realize this is TurboDodge.com, but I'm sure a lot of you guys with Turbo Dodges have some Non-turbo cars as well). Prefer it to be in halfway decent shape with a manual trans, but an automatic is fine as well. Looking for a cheapy to knock around in and get halfway decent mileage.

Or, Late 80's early 90's Shadow/Sundance. Same as above, prefer stick but it really doesn't matter. Non turbo again, need gas mileage over performance at this point.

If anybody has any of these cars sitting in the yard not being used let me know! I don't really NEED the car, but it would be nice to get a gas sipper. Either PM me here or E-mail me at Danpd66@aol.com. Location, what your looking at getting for it, and pics would be great too!

Thanks in advance,

Dan :)

Or Daytona's, I forgot about them. If it is a Turbo Charger, Shadow/Sundance or Daytona I don't mind, I'll just have to be real conservative on the gas pedal! ;)

Re: WTB Late 80's Charger/Turismo, Shadow/Sundance

Unless you find a car that in just about perfect shape, you'd probably get better fuel economy with a turbo car. I have personally found that the na cars tend be be a bit "tired" due to their old age. And we all know the quality of materials Mother Mopar was forced to use in the 80's, so most of the na cars are long gone.

The turbo cars on the other hand tend to have had previous owners who typically "valued" their cars a bit more. They were special cars because they were turbo cars.

Most of the Shelby Chargers and TI Lebarons I've owned have all gotten well over 28-32 mpg. Some even more, vacuum is a wonderful thing for fuel economy...... if you can stay out of the boost!!!!

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply! I know what you mean, sadly most of the Chargers/Turismo's have been crushed, a few of the Shadows/Sundances have managed to stick around, but man oh man even they are disappearing rapidly!

Yup, it seems turbo cars have to strain less to get up to speed. Generally turbo engines are built stronger too.

I'm averaging 36 mpg this winter with my 86 5-speed that I rebuilt the carb on in August.
