I have a 1987 Chrysler Lebaron for sale, in USA - Colorado.

Engine Size: 2.2


Asking price is $1,800 obo, nego



I'm selling my '87 Lebaron premium coupe. The body is decent but needs fenders because the last owner never took the bra off of it and the fenders developed rust at the bottoms. The silver paint has the typical fading and peeling but the interior is beautiful; all leather with almost no damage to the driver's seat.

The car currently wears Eibach lowering springs and Koni shocks and struts. The wheels are stock 'buzzsaw' alloys and the tires are trash. The car doesn't currently run because it's in the middle of a manual transmission swap that was never completed (thanks, Gary).

Included with the car are two extra engines and an enormous pile of parts, mostly engine rebuild stuff:

"G" head, partially ported, valves and seats removed
TII intake with wiring and injectors and three extra tops (I have no idea why)
TII intercooler
early style reman water pump
two timing belts, one suare, one round tooth
fresh ground crankshaft by Colorado Crankshaft, turned .010/.010
new 3" catalytic convertor
set of pistons, Badger for 3.464" bore
new set of ERW lifters
new set of Wolverine solid followers
new set of NAPA valve springs
new set of Manley valves (stock diameter, I believe)
new oil pick up tube
new oil pump
new turbo drain tube
new thermostat, 90 degrees I believe
new throttle body, 52mm I believe
four forged rods from TII engine
8mm spark plug wires on cap
strut tower connector, looks new
used Bitsosushi BOV
TI block
TII block, spun rod bearing, may or may not be junk
stock TII crankshaft from above engine, badly scored, may or may not be junk
stock oil pan for TI
Chrysler turbo valve cover
header professionally made from 2.5 exhaust manifold, originally listed under parts for sale
center console for manual transmission swap
lots of other used parts, nuts, bolts, etc

The car is at a friend's house and I don't yet have any pictures of it, so I included three pictures of the stuff that the car comes with. I will get a few shots of the car itself shortly.

I'm willing to negotiate the price of everything but I don't want to separate the lot or sell anything individually; this is all or nothing. I know what I paid for everything and I know what it's all worth so any and all low-ball offers will be gleefully ignored. Receipts for most of the parts and work will be included.

Call Jim at (303) 680-3246 home, please don't leave message here or (720) 434-9425 cell, please leave message here

Hey Jim!

Just saw this (Ron let me know, actually). I'll take some pics and send them to you today.

Guys this is a nice car. Jim has put a lot of time into this car and it's destined to be a great car. He's got it about 80% of the way. He needs someone to take it past the finish line.

I'm adding to the list the brand new aluminum radiator that was in my Acclaim for a week (no kidding, one week!) before I spun a rod bearing.

Also included is the brand new custom-built fast-ratio rack and pinion. It's two turns lock-to-lock and cost me $235.

The car and pile of parts also includes the $300 that I'm owed for parts that disappeared from the car while in someone else's care. Details provided to the buyer at time of purchase.

Jim @ (303) 680-3246, cell disconnected right now, between calling plans.

BUMP!

:needpics:
I know, I know. I apologize; the car is on the other side of town and my friend told me he'd try to take some for me (the car is at his house), but he hasn't had time either.

I promise to get them tomorrow and post them immediately afterward.

And my cell is back up and running: (720) 434-9425.

Also of note is that the K-member in the car is powder coated black and has polyurethane bushings. It was swapped out for the manual transmission swap that is only partially done.

I believe I paid $150 for it.

I'd like some pics. Please clear your PMs so I can send you my email add.
Okay, it's cleared.

Sorry for the problems, all.

Also going with the car is a full set of factory service manuals (engine/chassis/body, wiring, electrical/fuel/emissions, diagnostics), a Mopar Performance 2.2/2.5 manual, and the showroom brochure (showing the same exact type of car on page three).

All four are worth about $100.

Okay, I'm sweetening the deal yet again.

Added to the pile of parts is now the DOHC Neon head I obtained in trade and my turbocharger books: Maximum Boost by Corky Bell and Turbochargers by Hugh MacInnes. I even discovered that I have crash sheets for the "J" body Lebarons.

What would it take to get this car on the streets, parts/workwise?
As far as I know, the only things the cars needs to run would be to finish the transmission swap, which is really just putting in the console, hooking up the cables (which I don't think I have), a battery, and the air filter (stock or custom; I was planning for a big K&N conical filter).

The tires are decent and hold air, but I wouldn't drive to Wyoming on them. That's why I listed them as trash.

I'm willing to deal here because I need a crib, stroller, and other baby stuff...

How hard would these cables be to find and put in?
Finding them shouldn't be too hard here in the classified section under parts wanted. I may be able to scare up a set. Installing them, however, I don't know but I'll make some calls and let you know what I find out. Since they go in after the transmission is installed, it can't be that difficult.

************************************************************************

Okay, after looking at my 2.2/2.5 manual, the cables aren't too hard to install, but you do need an inch-pound torque wrench to do it.
