Small Block Restomod: 1987 Chrysler Conquest

Back in the mid 1980s if you wanted a Mitsubishi with a turbo engine in the front and rear wheel drive, you had four cars to choose from — the Mitsubishi Starion, Dodge Conquest, Plymouth Conquest, and Chrysler Conquest…but they were really the same car with different badges. Today’s next example of the Conquestarion has had its turbo engine replaced with a small block Chevy and the price is appropriate for the condition. Find this 1987 Chrysler Conquest offered for $4800 in Lake Zurich, IL via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!
