Fatty That Runs Flat: 1987 Chrysler Conquest TSI
You know what makes a great combination — wide fender flares, huge turbocharger, manual gearbox, rear-wheel-drive, and neck chopping automatic seat belts. The only thing you need to make it a BUY-BUY-BUY is if you added some muppet skin interior…AND a cheap price because it doesn’t run correctly. Find this 1987 Chrysler Conquest TSI offered for $4,500 in Glenpool, OK via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

1987 CHRYSLER CONQUEST TSI TURBO 5-SPEEDI bought this car a year and a half ago. It ran and drove but the clutch was slipping and the turbo seals were leaking. I drove it around a couple of hundred miles and started taking it apart. It sat apart because I had a stroke and was unable to put the car back together myself. Then last month I paid the mobile mechanic to come out and get it going again.

*NEITHER THE MECHANIC NOR I COULD GET THE CAR TO RUN CORRECTLY. I CAR WILL RUN NOW BUT IT JUST RUNS LIKE CRAP. I DON’T HAVE THE TIME OR ABILITY TO FIX THE CAR. THE CAR IS RUST FREE AND VERY CLEAN FRONT TO BACK AND SO NOW ITS FOR SALE.
THE PREVIOUS OWNER HAD THE ENGINE REBUILT BETWEEN 80K AND 90K. THE CAR HAD BEEN IN THE SAME FAMILY ITS ENTIRE LIFE UNTIL I BOUGHT IT. EVERYTHING IN THE CAR WORKS. THE AC IS THERE BUT DON’T BLOW COLD. THE HEATER, THE LIGHTS, SEAT BELTS, WINDOWS ETC ALL WORK.
YOU WILL NEED A TRAILER. (UHAUL $39.95 A DAY)
I WAS BLOWN AWAY HOW POPULAR THESE HAVE BECOME LATELY. DON’T MATTER WHICH WAY YOU GO. WHERE YOU KEEP THIS ENGINE IN IT OR PUT AN LS OR SMALL BLOCK IN IT. ANYWAYS ITS TIME FOR IT TO FIND A NEW HOIME.
