General Information

Lebaron convertible
Bought from All American Auto in Ivor Virginia as a parts car for my 1985 Mark Cross convertible. The 1985 was totaled in February 2009 and I saved the powertrain, top, doors etc. Due to retiring and relocating it was put on the back burner until last year. It is now being redone.
