              It's not appreciated now, but the Lebaron and Iacocca was responsible for the return of the factory built convertible. The Lebaron deserves some place in automotive history.

                  I think that era of affordable, compact, throw away cars has past now. The K car platform ran its course hopefully never to return. It was a good run for Chrysler.

                  They had a good following and probably still do to some extent but it's pretty rare to see one on the road anymore. The early ones used a Volkswagen 2.2 and it was a strong engine. Then Chrysler developed their own engine. It didn't take long before there were Chrysler performance upgrades offered, engine, trans ect. Carroll Shelby even got onboard with some pretty impressive upgrades.

                  I've owned two and they were easy to work on and they really weren't known for any major problems. If they were properly maintained you got your 100k miles out of them, maybe more. But the majority of them were crushed not long after reaching that milage and replaced with the new generation of Chrysler products or even something else.

                  RIP K car

                      I would pay $2500 cash for it. ( I am NOT a K car fan.) But just because of the Lee Iacocca connection. The K cars are nothing valuable now. But think about something like Model T Fords. They are not really valuable, BUT, if you had a 1920's Model T that had clear documented proof that it was actually originally and personally owned by Henry Ford, what would the market value be on it?

                        Wouldn’t look so bad without the fake wood. Interior looks nice.

                          The 2.2 was all Chrysler. Early Dodge Omnis used a VW engine, it was a 1.7 litre. Volkswagen has never had a 2.2 engine size.

                                  Came here to say it looks like John Voight's car lmao!!!

                                  I think $25k is a bit much for it.

                                    I think the got the 1986 price wrong at $17+K. More like $7K. I bought a loaded 87 Dodge Lancer new and it was less than $8K.

                                      I'll take it, I owe them that much for the life I have now!!! It saved tens of thousands of jobs and saw many into retirement. Not my cup of tea, but it and the minivan will go down in history, ugly or not.
