Corvairish Monztrocity: 2004 Chrysler Sebring
The Chrysler Sebring was the ultimate downer at the car rental parking lots through the 2010 model year when it was replaced by the equally bad but more stylish Chrysler 200. Still a miserably penalty box, but not quite as visibly repugnant. Anyway, between 1995 and 2010, when you were on the way to the rental counter you had high hopes of getting a V6 Mustang or a Crown Vic or some new car you’d never driven before. And you wished you wouldn’t get a Nissan, but you were frozen with fear if you saw a Chrysler key fob being passed over the counter. Uggg, those were horrible cars. Anyway, today’s Sebring has been covered in an early Corvair body shape that looks like it was rejected from the Gas Monkey Garage for being too shabby…but I sorta like it. Expect people to give you lots of space in the parking lot and this COVID thing lets you wear a mask so people won’t recognize you. Find this 2004 Chrysler Sebring with Corvair looks offered for $6000 CAD ($4805 USD) in Edmonton, AB, Canada via Kijiji.ca. Tip from Erik202.

This is a weird case of a seemingly horrible idea being redeemed by surprisingly good execution.
I would lose those hands on the mirrors in favor of some more period-correct mirrors – even if it means losing the power mirrors.
Agreed, turned out better than the sum of its parts.
Appraised at $10,000? Step away from the crack pipe.
Who appraised this at 10,000 Canadian? Seriously. At least the asking price is more realistic.
Rupees would be more realistic.
How would you like to live next door to the builder?
Sounds great! Think of the tools you could borrow. A second set of hands when you need to weld some…errr…hands…
“All the luxuries” of a 2004 Sebring. *swoon*
Compare, for example, to the brand new VW Transporter that was covered in a very convincing rusty wrap.
I can’t help it.. I like it lol
