“Ricardo Montalban Looked Classy With the Woodie 1983 Chrysler LeBaron” – Car and Driver, October 2020

“The K-Car family saved Chrysler from near-certain doom and stayed in production well into the 1990s, and the LeBaron was the most opulent of the original Ks. Ricardo Montalban gained his greatest Chrysler fame as the Cordoba's smooth-talking pitchman in the middle 1970s, but he continued to sell Chryslers all through the following decade. Here's a sunset-toned… advertisement for the 'woodie' early LeBaron Town & Country convertible (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfUzMiCgAWo), with Montalban and his convertible against a backdrop of the Town & Country station wagon and the original 1948 Town & Country convertible."

Offered here is a 1983 Chrysler LeBaron Town & Country Convertible in white and wood-style trim over brown. One of the millions of the Lee Iacocca-championed K cars that literally saved Chrysler Corporation from extinction, this top-of-the-line example even included the “talking car” messaging option. Originally owned by a Chrysler vice president and currently showing 51,370 miles on its odometer, this MOPAR historically significant convertible has traveled fewer than 1,400 miles per-year on average since new. (And yes, the upholstery is “fine Corinthian leather.”)

The LeBaron's exterior has been well-maintained by past owners. The original white paint retains excellent gloss and the “woodie” trim retains its like-new look and feel. There are no dings, dents, or other noteworthy damage to any body panel, sheet-metal or “wood.” (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, please be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The power convertible top in white is free of rips or evidence of unusual wear. The white-and-chrome continental kit, faux-wire-wheel, spare-tire carrier is original to the car and shows no scrapes, patina, or other flaws. So, too, the rear-deck luggage rack, headlight trim, and formal-style front grille. Plastic-covered bumpers front and rear feature vinyl and chrome trim, all of which shows no evidence of even minor impacts. Cabin glass and lighting lenses are clear and unmarred. Factory wheels with Chrysler Penta-star-embossed full-faux-wire-wheel covers are mounted with thin-stripe whitewall tires.

Inside, the brown Corinthian-leather upholstery really does steal the show. The rich, brown leather surfaces—including matching, pleated door-panel trim and expansive convertible “boot”—display a rich color and an attractive patina from age. Showing only light creases, the seating surfaces are free of wear marks or other damage of any sort. (The center armrest shows wear from regular use.) Darker-brown vinyl upholstery trim adds to the rich look. Dark-brown carpeting (protected with rubber mats) covers the cabin floors, rear-seat-area walls, and lower door panels. Woodgrain trim accents on the doors, dashboard, and console add to the Eighties-elegant look. A dark-brown, 2-spoke, Chrysler-logo-branded steering wheel frames the square-design, brown, padded dashboard. Instrument lenses are clear and graphic markings—including on the federally mandated 85-mph speedometer—are crisp and fresh-looking. A series of toggle switches set in woodgrain operates the trip computer. The original AM-FM-stereo with cassette player remains mounted above the controls for the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, with a digital chronometer to the right. The console hosts the shift lever for the automatic transmission adjacent to the button controlling the power convertible top deployment. The computerized 12-message reminder “voice” system operates properly. All interior surfaces have been well-maintained.

Under the hood, the clean but not overly detailed engine bay is host to the 2.6-liter, inline 4-cylinder engine. This efficient powerplant was one of the K-car advantages in the fuel-strapped decade. Viewed from below, the chassis is complete, straight, and undamaged.

The car's original identification, build, and data tags remain mounted, including a build tag from the Detroit firm that performed the convertible modifications for Chrysler. The original window sticker and owner's manual are also included in the sale.

While the more than 155 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '83 Chrysler LeBaron in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.

The rare opportunity to combine history and fun in this very well-kept, significant Chrysler will tempt vintage MOPAR fans and the Radwood crowd alike. What better way to celebrate the Eighties?
