Looks like my Chrysler Conquest, I believe thats what your referring to. Its a 87 model. 4 cyl turbo and came with 16" factory wheels. That was crazy then, would eat 5.0's for lunch :biggrin:Originally posted by shredder130@Sep 2 2005, 07:19 AM~3738660
i don't think thats a ricer, if i remember right, its a rare turbo charged rwd chrysler from the 80's, if it is what i think it is, the car was very ahead of its time
:thumbsup: not bad advice dyme but my friend's gunna keep rollin it for a while and he refuses to spend much on it - I just thought someone might have an idea for very cheaply getting the bumpers looking better :happysad:Originally posted by dyme_sak_hustla@Sep 3 2005, 12:55 PM~3743104
take what money you would spend on paint for it, and buy a new car.
My american version is a 2.6 liter turbo..these were true turbo cars..you could hear the turbo whine when you got on it. I could eat up 5.0 Mustangs and Camaros. I did get taken out by a 5.7 5 speed Firebird, but these cars are bad ass for 4 cyl.Originally posted by X-Sonic@Sep 2 2005, 09:18 PM~3743234
It's a 1983 Mitsubishi Starion Turbo, they were also sold in USA as a Chrysler Conquest but make no mistake, they are Japanese - true that they are RWD and were considered ahead of their time but it's a small asian hatchback made for going fast which goes against everything I love in a car :nono:
The ones sold in USA are known to have a lesser engine than the model in the pic which has a 2litre, 4 cylinder, 4G63 block. Although the "Chrysler" versions have nicer wheels, interiors, all sorts of stuff... ('83 Sta' comes on ugly 14s). As far as being rare, they're certainly not the most common car on the road but there are quite a few out there.
Cars like this paved the way for the rice of today, all plastic, too small, uncomfortable, no chrome :uh:
