Title: DobaMark's 80 LeBaron T&C
Post by: DobaMark on July 02, 2020, 06:00:21
I found this car on Facebook Marketplace. It's plain, slant 6, 42k miles. Options? Air conditioning, roof rack, rear defroster, color keyed seat belts, light package. No tilt, cruise, intermittent wipers, passenger mirror, power windows, locks, seat. It's solid and the paint is nice. But it needs help on the"wood" trim.

oh that thing is a beauty man!!!

Nice find...I have always wanted one like it...although my plans would be to totally go "Hipster" with it and get it ready for back-country canoeing / backpacking trips!

Damn...I know I said it already, but: NICE FIND man!

I'm safe! 1980 uses a different light, with no eagle medallion on it!

very cool on broadcast sheet. I've never found one in any of mine yet including the 79 I had.

I haven't seen the LeBaron in over a month. It was hauled to Georgia in September and stored at a friend's business since then.
Now I'm in Georgia and waiting for the LeBaron to be hauled to my house, hopefully this week.

Another friend told me he was able to use the 3M eraser wheel to remove the woodgrain applique from his AMC Eagle wagon. I'm going to give that a try to remove my old woodgrain so I can reinstall fresh vinyl.

I know someone with an '87 Diplomat that found one behind the back seat, I found The Cherry Bomb's under the front seat (but it was destroyed in the hotel fire  :doh: :pound: )
