SQs at Carlisle Chrysler Nationals

15 July 2019 - 08:54 AM

I went to Chrysler Nationals in Carlisle, Pa on Saturday.  I didn't take my car for a multitude of reasons, but I was surprised to see a couple quests there this year.

First was an 85.5 driver condition Starion.  Was way back in the far corner, surprised they let it in being it was a full Mitsubishi.   Had a spray painted fender, missing trim, beat up interior etc. etc. but I loved it!    I could tell that the owner is enjoying it and having fun with it.  And it ended up winning third place in the 'Chrysler Relatives' group.  Owner's name is Brandon per the tag on the car.   Member here?

Second was a banana 89 conquest SHP 5sp with 66K.  Looked fully original.  Some minor stone chips here and there and a few marks on the back bumper.   Shifter boot was chewed up but the interior looked good.   It was in the car corral, asking $11,995.   I have the phone number, if anyone is interested (I won't post it publicly without the owners consent).  It's a 570 area code so I'm assuming the owner if from the Northeast or Central PA.  Said garage kept, never driven in winter...thus I'm assuming original owner.

Rebuildable PS Pump

22 May 2019 - 11:39 AM

Looking for a PS Pump.  The bearing surfaces of mine are worn out of spec resulting in fluid purging from the shaft seal even after seal replacement  

Rebuilds are currently out of stock everywhere.

Please let me know

83/84 Steering Wheel

21 February 2019 - 11:46 AM

I've been looking for one of these for awhile and figured I'd make up another 'items wanted' post.

I'm looking for a steering wheel out of an 83 or 84.  The four spoke kind without the radio controls.   Condition or color isn't a big deal.  

I'm mainly looking for the guts to redo my 88/89 wheel to eliminate the radio controls.

Black Dashboard, Black 86 Carpet, Black 88 Headliner

21 January 2019 - 11:53 AM

I'm trying to clean up my garage and I'd like to part with a few of these larger items to regain some space.   Based on the size, I'd much prefer to have these picked up rather than ship.  I'm at the PA/MD border right off of Rt 81 (zip 17202).

Fuel Tank:  $50 obo  SOLD

No internal rust!  

I started to clean this up and removed all of the undercoating in preparation for restoration. It appears the tank was dented on the bottom sometime in its life.  The dent contacted an inner tube on the tank and broke a weld.  See photos.   I was planning on repairing the issue with a fuel resistant epoxy resin but because my hand was too big to access the location, I decided to restore another spare tank that I had. I hate to throw this thing away because there is absolutely no internal rust which is rare to find nowadays.  










Black Dashboard:  Free

From an 88.  Has a small blemish just behind where the cluster hood sits on the right side.   Photos will be added shortly.


88/89 Buckskin carpet:  $50 obo

Decent condition.  Photos will be added shortly.

86 Black carpet:  $75 obo

Insulation has been removed on the underside.  Car had a 5 point seatbelt harness at one time and carpet has a hole where it mounted, see photo.   The black plastic pads are coming loose, needs re-glued.   Photo shows it over an aftermarket carpet (I used it as a template).   Good swap if you are going with manual seat belts!

Cxracing radiator with clutch fan?

06 November 2018 - 04:14 PM

Well it turns out that my OEM radiator that I had re-cored has a small crack in the lower tank.  30 years of corrosion took its toll on it I guess.  I can take it up the road to the radiator shop and have it brazed but I'm concerned that it will just crack again in another spot.   Figures...

I never used an aluminum radiator on these cars.  The OEM units have always been pretty reliable for me.  Will a cxracing unit work with a clutch fan/shroud setup?

Thanks,
Kevin
