1978 Chrysler LeBaron Additional Info:

My grandma bought this car from another little old lady back in the 80s (two owners) and kept it garaged/barely drove it. She loved the attention this California beach car would get on the highway. I've inherited it but don't have room for it/time to take care of it (even though it's so cool!). It's registered on movievehicles.com and has been used in several TV shows and movies set in the 70s/80s (you can earn about $100 a day doing this). The AC is ice cold but there is a slow leak somewhere (needs to be recharged with R-12A every now and then until leak is plugged). It just passed smog but it runs rich and the technician said it should get a carburetor rebuild. Some discoloration around rear bumper but no rust on the frame that I can see. I have the hood ornament, but it snapped off sometime in the 90s and needs to be reattached. Chrome/plastic wheel well ornamentation could use a re-glue as well. Some sun damage on driver's seat leather upholstery but overall the interior is super plush and basically looks brand new.
Regular oil changes/tune ups.
I have records for the following:
06/15/2017 - New Starter
02/24/2015 - New Voltage Regulator
2015/01/21 - New Battery/New Tires
2014/04/18 - New Transmission/Soft Top.
2009/01/30 - New Water Pump
2009/02/02 - New Thermostat, Gasket, Bypass hose
19.5 gallon gas tank. 8-cylinder engine American made.
Would love to see it go to a collector/someone with an appreciation for well-kept American classics.
