We have a seriously special car on TestDrive this week as we look at a barn find 1993 Chrysler LeBaron LX convertible that looks like it rolled off the showroom floor.
Our Spotlight is on this garage-kept, low mileage, and recently unearthed 1993 Chrysler LeBaron LX convertible which has spent a lot of time in a barn. We're the first to drive this car in quite some time as we get it on the road to stretch it's legs and see what the final LeBaron is all about.
Our full tour and review of this K-Car convertible goes over everything you'd possibly want to know about the third generation LeBaron, including how the name came up, who LeBaron Carossiers Inc was, how it became part of Biggs Manufacturing, and eventually ended up as a division of the Chrysler Corporation. After our history lesson we discuss the specifics of this third generation LeBaron coupe/convertible including the different trims available, what the facelift changed, and what options and features came on this generation, as well as this fully-loaded LX trim.
We also discuss the 3.0L Mitsubishi V6 engine that came on this and what other vehicles over the decades used this powerplant. We show the interior and exterior of this insanely-well kept LeBaron and discuss the fine Corinthian leather found on this LX. We then take the 1993 Chrysler LeBaron LX on one of it's first drives in years as we boot around town with the top down to discuss how 27 years of barn-dust has affected this vehicle, how the car has held up over the decades, and what info buyers would need to know if they're looking at this vehicle.
We think about some of the reasons why someone would want to buy this car as we ponder our own desire for it. We wrap up our full tour and review of this 1993 Chrysler LeBaron LX convertible with a buyer's guide, going over all the common problems and issues with this vehicle as well as some of the online resources available to buyers if they end up buying a car like this.
