    The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    Post any information you have on these cars here. Production numbers, color combos, options etc. This info is hard to find on these cars, and from what I've seen the actual production numbers are nearly as low as the Shelby and IROC R/T cars, and some combinations may be even rarer. It would be very helpful to those of us who own them to determine their value, whether selling or insuring.

    I had an 89 GTC coupe TI auto, it's soup cans by now. I might be able to dig up a few pics and the VIN if you want.

    Cool! Buddy of mine has an '89 TII 5-spd also that is a slightly darker shade than mine and two-tone (greyish on the bottom). His has no sunroof, a luggage rack and a serious case of cancer. Both his and mine have tan interiors. Mine was originally leather but Tony swapped it out for cloth when he owned it.

    VIN might be nice to determine what options it had.

    Re: The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    Mine is cloth, luggage rack and no digital dash and rust free, and probably could be for sale 140k from the original owner, I got it because i always wanted one and thought I would be happy with a nice original driver..... Im just not happy unless a car doesnt have a heater or radio or manual streeing and an auto is a must with me

    Mine had a factory slave CD player, but I sold it along with the radio and front speakers so I could install a factory cupholder and my Sony head unit.

    Re: The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    On the convertible the tunnel is bigger for structural reasons, and the airbag module is mounted on the tunnel about where the slave cd player would fit, which is why only the coupes got them as a option, the cupholder will still fit over it. So I had to relocate the module a bit and then I was able to get the cd player in too. Personnaly I can't stand aftermarket decks, so I'd rather have the oe stuff. And when all the infinity speakers and their little amps are working right it sounds pretty good.

    Re: The Lebaron Turbo GTC, GTS and GT thread

    I have a 89 Lebaron GTS Turbo. Light Pewter Pearl Coat, Taupe interior and dark Pewter rims. Only opitions on the car are Infintiy II, power driver seat, and Pewter Pearl Coat paint at extra cost. From what I could find, 1 of 268 Turbo II 5-speed cars. All original, paint, interior, motor. Has around 60k original miles on it. Original Florida car never left Florida so zero rust. Build date, 11-4-88, shipped date 11-30-88 to Galeana Chrysler Plymouth Ft Myers Fl. Sold new on
    1-22-90 with 181 miles on it. Original owner gave it to his grandson in 2005. I bought it from the grandson in 2011. I waited 6 years for him to sell it and he finally did, with alot of push from his new wife.

    Here is my 90 VNT Conv. at SDAC 18, It has the cd player and EVIC system. Lived most of its life in california, then was in Wisconsin and then donated to the salvation army. I got it from a dealer in Milwaukee ,Just as you see it minus some elbow grease...he got it from the auction from the salvation army. Crazy!!!
    An absolutley wonderful car to drive.
