Hello again everyone! Since joining the forums and talking with some of you, I have decided to restore my car with a G54B powertrain for the time being! So I'll introduce the car by sharing how it looked when I bought it. I picked up my Atlantic Blue 87 Conquest from a guy in Atlanta on Craigslist. He did tell me it had a minor accident in 1988 which was repaired, and then was a victim of flooding in Austell, Georgia about 10 years ago. I am definitely wary of the fact that this is a flood car, but the bodywork is overall in good shape save for a few rust spots. Since the images in the first gallery, I have started to disassemble the car, and I will show my progress as I continue working. I look forward to learning more about these cars and to getting this one back on the road! If you have any advice or questions for me, please let me know. I look forward to the blood, sweat, and tears it will take to bring this car back to life!
The car in my garage featuring my freshly painted interior doors I did the day before buying the car! I also got the spare block shown in this picture with the car!
The car as it sat when I first saw it.
The body lines seem straight with minimal rust.
I love the louvers, even though some don't care for them I think they add lots of characters to the car!
Some minor water damage to the leather on the driver's side door panel
Gotta love the turbo market seat belts!
The car had sat for a while after taking water damage, so there were plenty of leaves and acorns in the engine bay!
I've never owned a car that required a R-134a conversion before (This car is older than I am!)
Manufactured in Japan by Mitsubishi for Chrysler!
