    Re: WANTED: LeBaron GTS or Dodge Lancer turbo

    I know my brother's old '89 Lebaron GTS (a factory TII/A555 car) is still around here locally somewhere. Last year I went to a local auto-x event and an old friend asked me if I was interested, but I have too much on my plate. It sounds like it still runs fine, but I imagine it's a little rough around the edges. But it would be cheap I'm sure. I can try to find out more.

    That would be great....thanks. The 89 GTS TII is a rare bird as many already have pointed out in the GTC/GTS thread. Locally for you is Wyoming?

    It's changed hands a few times since my brother owned it. It was originally dark maroon/cherry with dark red leather interior. Last I knew it still had the original TII engine, and was sporting an A568 manual trans (better than A555 imo). It has also been repainted, but in flat black. Not a bad job, but not my style personally. It is rust free and straight last I knew though. I will track it down though. I have a feeling it's sitting outside of town somewheres. If I wasn't so concerned about getting my brothers/my old Shelby CSX back from a former friend, I would probably try to get it myself.

    Thanks for your detective work...interesting developments, sounds like! I guess Iím going to remain open to the possibilities, and appreciate your efforts.

    Thanks...

    There's an '87 Shelby Lancer local to me, but the posted price is pretty high for a car that's been sitting half in primer for over 15 years.

    Re: WANTED: LeBaron GTS or Dodge Lancer turbo

    Add me to this list too please... (Looking for a 5spd GTS/Lancer) I've got one of each now, but I don't want to drive the Shelby Lancer regularly, and I don't know what it is about my GTS, but it's like the 'black hole of money'. I bought it YEARS ago knowing it needed a head gasket and body work, but was fine with that. Then, after:
    Upper end rebuild
    PS pump
    Steering Rack
    SO MANY seals I can't count, but it still leaks!!!
    Window 'tapes'
    The tires are like 12 years old with MAYBE 200 miles on them...

    I'm out west, but will be willing to travel/ship for the right one so PM me with any options (once 85Dodge600ESturbo gets his).
    OH and I may be willing to do a trade/partial for my 85 600ES convertible (gold) so PM me.
    Thanks!
