Autotrader Find: Really Nice 1990 Chrysler TC by Maserati

If you’re a fan of weird cars, you’re probably very familiar with the Chrysler TC by Maserati: a (theoretically) sportier version of the Chrysler LeBaron that had been “tuned” by Maserati for a more exclusive experience. Chrysler TC by Maserati models are rare in any shape — but this one is currently listed for sale by Autotrader, and it’s shockingly nice.

This particular TC is finished in black with a tan interior, and it’s traveled just 41,000 miles from new. The leather interior is in surprisingly nice shape, which is rare for these, as the type of leather used typically results in excessive wear. But the seats are nicer than you might expect, and so is the rest of the car.

The advertisement for this car says that it’s a one-owner vehicle, and the Carfax report seems to prove that, as the car has been in Florida since it was sold new — and it’s been driven only sparingly, reaching 40,500 miles by 2002. That means it’s been driven very little in the last 17 years, potentially as the owner waited for this low-mileage car to appreciate considerably in value.

Of course, that never really happened, and this TC by Maserati is currently offered by R and L Car Broker Corporation in Hollywood, Florida, for $8,999. That’s big money for an old Chrysler, but it’s totally worth it if you’re looking for one of these, as you’re unlikely to find a nicer one. Find a Chrysler TC for sale

  1. Never understood the TC.  It looks exactly like a shrunken Lebaron.  I thought they outsourced this to Pinin Farina or somebody for a new Chrysler sportscar, and they ended up with the TC?  Someone got paid a bunch of cash for essentially just taking the existing car and shrinking it down.  Are the underpinnings essentially just existing Mopar bits?  A cool exercise with a bizarre ending.
