If you're looking for a convertible, you're probably interested in checking out the usual suspects: a Miata or a Jeep Wrangler -- or maybe a Toyota Solara or a BMW 4-Series. Well, here's something of an unusual suspect: this 1983 Dodge 400 Convertible, which is quite different from the convertible norm.

The Dodge 400 Convertible was apparently a soft-top convertible based on the Chrysler K-Car chassis at the time, which underpinned many vehicles with many different names. This is a rather rare one -- and it's not just rare because few were made. It's also tremendously uncommon to find one in this condition. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is the nicest one left.

This particular Dodge 400 Convertible has traveled just 65,000 miles, and it's offered by a private seller in Pennsylvania. The Carfax report suggests that it has spent most -- or possibly all -- of its life in Pennsylvania, though it clearly wasn't driven during winters, as its condition is simply too good. Finished in yellow with a beige interior and a beige top, this Dodge 400 is truly in fantastic shape.

If you're interested, it's offered for $5,995, which strikes me as a bit of a bargain for this car, considering how truly impossible it must be to find one in such nice shape. If you're a K-Car enthusiast (does such a thing exist?), then you can't possibly pass up this Dodge 400. Find a Dodge 400 for sale
