Starion Flatty: 1985 Chrysler Conquest

This next car comes as a tip from Mr Mark who writes: Here’s an 80-something Conquest. The seller doesn’t state which brand it is, I think this was the Chrysler-branded version of the Starion? Anyway, unlike the Hurst Olds featured the other day, which I noted had “so little potential”, this guy has tons of potential. The seller says so! Just check out that underhood tubing, the very, uh, prominent exhaust and WORKING DIGITAL DASH! But you might want to protect that custom intercooler first. Yes indeed, this is a Chrysler and that IC would be demolished trying to pull this onto a flatbed for sure. Find this 1985 Chrysler Conquest offered for $3750 in Warrenton, VA via craigslist.

80’s nostalgia! Rare rust-free ’85 Conquest (same as Mitsubishi Starion) flatside coupe. Quick 4-cylinder intercooled turbo, 5-speed manual, rear-wheel drive 80’s coolness. Motor rebuilt years ago, new radiator, has air intake, upgraded larger intercooler w/ custom hardpipes and BOV, full 3″ exhaust.

Rare fully-working “digital dash”….Body is near perfect (minus front nose), undercarriage is very clean. Interior could use some work (I do have black leather front seats as well). Starts and runs, but idles very high so will need some tinkering. Lots of potential. Serious inquiries only please.
