This 1982 Chrysler LeBaron convertible was recently acquired by the selling dealer from its original owners, who bought the car for $14,590.85 on January 15, 1983 in San Bernardino, California. In 1997 at 31,793 miles the car was reportedly garaged and registered planned non-operation until 2015 when the original owners moved to Arizona. The car was put back on the road, and the fuel system was serviced including a new carburetor. Power comes from a 2.2L inline-four paired with a 3-speed automatic transaxle, and a tachometer and a third brake light have been added. This LeBaron now shows 32,735 miles and is offered at no reserve in Boulder City, Nevada with the original purchase order, service records and registration slips since 1983, factory manuals, a clean Carfax, and a clean Arizona title.
The second-generation LeBaron debuted for the 1982 model year, and the convertible iteration was built through 1986. This example is finished in beige with a dark tan power soft top. A third brake light has been added to the deck lid, and mud flaps are mounted behind each wheel. Dings and blemishes are noted and highlighted in the photo gallery below, including scuffs on the bumpers and a mark at the rear edge of the driver’s door. The car reportedly underwent a professional detailing procedure in July 2018, and the included Carfax is free of accidents or other damage.
14″ wheels with chrome wire covers are mounted with 185/70 Uniroyal Tiger Paw thin whitewall tires. Each corner is detailed in the gallery.
The interior features beige upholstery, darker carpeting, and faux wood trim. Factory equipment includes power windows, mirrors, and door locks, as well as air conditioning, an AM/FM cassette radio, and cruise control.
The steering wheel is cracked around the rim, and the seller states that the fuel sending unit is broken and the gauge reads empty. A Yazaki tachometer has been added to the right of the steering wheel. The gallery includes photos of the carpeting with the floor mats removed and also the trunk compartment.
The mechanical 5-digit odometer shows just over 32,700 miles, which is supported by documentation since the car was purchased new.
Under the hood is a carbureted 2.2L inline-four that developed 84 horsepower when new and drives the front wheels through a 3-speed automatic transaxle. The seller has provided a list of notable recent servicing:
- June 2018 (32,439 miles) – New battery, carburetor, fuel pump, fuel strainer, sending unit, and fuel filter
- July 2018 (32,468 miles) – Oil changed, rack and pinion replaced, new fuel pump ring seal
- December 2018 (32,469 miles) – Oil pressure switch replaced
- January 2019 (32,591 miles) – Heater valve replaced
Additional photos from underneath the car are displayed in the gallery.
The original purchase order, factory manuals, and service records are also shown in the gallery.
