well not exactly stole.. i picked up a 1987 Plymouth Reliant, with documented 35,765 miles. its like new inside and out the fuel injected 4cyl should get around 30mpg..i have a very soft spot in my heart for K-cars so i'm inlove with it..i got it home and promptly polished and waxed it..brought a whole new life to the car.

the low miles are because it was a "dvision of forestry service" car for the state of alaska. i have every service record from the car for the last 6 years or so. the car runs, and drives like new and looks close to it inside and out..

i picked it up for $850, i also plan to get another which is a wagon version of the same car.

first issue i had with it haha[b/]
YouTube - icy hill VS plymouth reliant

when i picked it up.




after a polish and wax






the wagon i think we'll also get

Must have been the cold weather that preserved it. I think you'd even have a hard time finding one in a salvage yard today, let alone one running on the street.

When I saw "classic" Chrysler I was thinking 1957 or maybe even 1967 but certainly didn't expect a 1987 K car!:) :biggrin:

Can't be too hard on the K car though; after all if not for that car (which is the car that 'saved' chrysler in the early 80's) there would be no awesome Chrysler 300C today!

From the faded sleeper department comes this Chrysler Lebaron turbo. Grandma picked up the turbo K-car off the showroom floor and passed it on to this guy, who installed a manual boost controller along with an exhaust and brought it out to the track. Running 20 pounds of boost, the turbo-K knocked off the quarter mile in the mid-12 second zone.

My brother used to have the K-car, 2.2L

I loved that car, I used to do all the work on it. 2-door 4-speed

was pretty fast for a 4-cyl, used to beat the snot out of it
