1978 CHRYSLER LE BARON MEDALLION SERIES COUPE – 225 6cyl (3. 7 litre) AUTOMATIC


THE ONLY ONE IN AUSTRALIA? VALIANT/ CHARGER COLLECTORS – SOMETHING DIFFERENT YET WITH FAMILIAR CHRYSLER MECHANICALS. I PURCHASED THIS UNUSUAL CAR 15 YEARS AGO IN BELGIUM – YES AN AMERICAN CAR BUILT FOR THE OVERSEAS MARKET & SOLD BY CHRYSLER EUROPE. I PURCHASED IT FROM THE DECEASED ESTATE OF THE ORIGINAL OWNER – IT HAS ONLY DONE 42K KLMS FROM NEW (BEING EUROPEAN DELIVERY IT HAS A KLM SPEEDO).


THE MECHANICALS ARE VERY RECOGNIZABLE – UNDER THE BONNET IS THE RELIABLE 225 SLANT-SIX – AS FITTED TO OUR VALIANTS UP TO THE VG. AFTER WHICH WE WENT TO THE HEMI. YET HERE IS A CAR BUILT AS LATE AS 1978 STILL WITH THE BULLITT-PROOF MOTOR BELOVED BY EARLY VALIANT ENTHUSIASTS. IT IS FITTED WITH A “LEAN-BURN” CARB AND IS A TORQUE FLITE 3-SPEED AUTOMATIC. THE CAR'S SIZE IS SIMILAR TO OUR VALIANT SO IT IS VERY MANAGEABLE ON AUSTRALIAN ROADS AND WITH THE 6-CYL MOTOR GIVES DECENT FUEL CONSUMPTION. IN OTHER WORDS. IT IS A PRACTICAL AMERICAN CAR WHICH YOU COULD USE DAILY.  

THE “MEDALLION SERIES” COUPE WAS THE TOP-OF-THE-LINE MID-SIZE. WITH SUMPTUOUS LEATHER & CARPET PLUS (FAKE) WOODGRAIN TRIM.


AT WELL OVER 30 YEARS OF AGE. REGISTRATION IS STRAIGHT FORWARD AND A COPY OF THE FORS IMPORT PERMIT WILL BE PROVIDED. IT WILL NEED TO HAVE A COMPLIANCE FIRST.

COMPARE MY OPENING PRICE WITH THAT OF CHARGER'S OR REGAL 2-DOOR'S – IMAGINE WHAT A 42K IMMACULATE EXAMPLE WOULD FETCH VS WHAT I AM ASKING? THIS CAR IS AN EXCELLENT VALUE ALTERNATIVE AND YOU'RE UNLIKELY TO MEET ANOTHER AT CLUB MEETINGS!


CONDITION: THE COMBINATION OF A RICH GREEN COLOUR. WITH ½ VINYL ROOF (VERY 70'S) WITH MATCHING LEATHER INTERIOR. LOOKS STUNNING. THE PAINTWORK WAS A LITTLE FLAT SO I'VE DONE A FULL TWO-PACK RESPRAY – THAT ALONE COST ALMOST MY OPENING PRICE. THE BODYWORK IS NOW EXCELLENT – THERE IS NO RUST. THE INTERIOR IS IMMACULATE. MECHANICALLY IT RUNS & DRIVES FINE. THE ORIGINAL SPARE WHEEL & TYRE HAVE NEVER BEEN ON THE ROAD!


AN UNUSUAL & EXPENSIVE OPTION FITTED WHEN NEW WAS THE ELECTRIC STEEL SUNROOF – GREAT FOR CRUISING. THE CAR WOULD MAKE A TERRIFIC LOW-RIDER IF YOU WANTED TO CONVERT IT.


TO BRING THE CAR TO A TOP STANDARD. I HAVE ALSO DONE THE FOLLOWING:

NOS BOOT LOCK

NEW FULLY LINED BOOT IN BLACK CARPET – THE ORIGINAL WAS MOISTURE DAMAGED – THIS COST $1000 & IS NOW BETTER THAN HOW THEY LEFT THE FACTORY

NEW SPARK PLUGS

2X NEW WHITEWALL TYRES (THE ORIGINALS HAD PERISHED WITH AGE)

PROFESSIONALLY DETAILED ENGINE BAY (4x DAYS WORK) TO MATCH THE HIGH STANDARD OF THE REST OF THE CAR


SUMMARY: THIS IS AN INTERESTING AND STYLISH COUPE WHICH IS BOTH PRACTICAL & ECONOMICAL FOR USE IN AUSTRALIA. YOU WILL HAVE TO LOOK VERY HARD TO FIND ONE WITH THIS CONDITION. HISTORY & PRICE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD. THE FIRST OWNER HAD THE CAR FOR 24 YEARS & I HAVE HAD IT FOR 15 YEARS. IT HAS BEEN STORAGE SINCE 2002 BUT HAS BEEN RE-COMMISSIONED & IS READY TO DRIVE. A NEW BATTERY IS REQUIRED.

Please note where it is – Crookwell NSW which is 45 klms west of Goulburn. which in turn is 2 ½ hours south of Sydney. A copy of the FORS import permit will be provided. As it has not registered you will need either a trailer or transporter to collect. Please consider this before bidding.
