For Sale: 1985 Dodge 600 Series in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1985 Dodge 600 convertible, attractively painted in red garnet pearl and upholstered in white vinyl. She is equipped with the 2.6-liter Mitsubishi 4 cylinder "Astron" engine and automatic transmission. The paint presents well for a daily driver but has scratches and peeling that will need to be repainted should you choose to take it to the next level. The white convertible top is in great condition. The weatherstripping needs to be replaced, but remarkably doesn't leak in the rain. I found a small rust hole in the trunk (see pictures). The driver's side bucket seat is ripped at the seams on the lower cushion. The engine has strong compression in all cylinders. I replaced the plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor. The carburetor has just been rebuilt (see receipt). She runs and drives well, but should be checked out further as it hasn't been on the road since 2019 and is a true barn find. The under-appreciated and oft maligned K Car. If you are an auto enthusiast as I am, you know its historical significance. For the uninitiated, here is a short history. Lee Iacocca, freshly fired by Henry Ford II was placed at the helm of a rapidly sinking Chrysler Corporation. Wracked by quality control and innumerable recalls of its Dodge Aspen & Plymouth Volare, Mopar needed a sales winner immediately and sales guru Iacocca delivered after having secured a loan from Uncle Sam. The 1981 Plymouth Reliant was a sales hit, proving to be the right car at the right time for Chrysler and ultimately the entire American auto industry. The Reliant and its cousin Dodge Aries were economical but Lee Iacocca sensed correctly that they needed a little panache. After seeing a prototype of a Chrysler LeBaron convertible, he ordered that it be rushed into production for the 1982 model year. The LeBaron, 400 & later 600s sold like the proverbial hot cakes. Chrysler saved, the K Car provided the platform for the minivan in 1984, putting smiles on the faces of soccer moms ever since.
