Autotrader Find: Well-Preserved 1989 Chrysler Conquest TSI

By now, most people have forgotten the Chrysler Conquest, which was a sporty coupe sold throughout the 1980s. But just in case you haven’t forgotten it — just in case you’ve always wanted a nice one — here’s your chance.

This is a 1989 Chrysler Conquest TSI, the vehicle’s top trim level, finished in blue with a black cloth interior. It’s in excellent shape, and it’s traveled just 46,500 miles in its life — and now it’s listed for sale by a private owner in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for $14,500.

In case that strikes you as a lot of money for a 30-year-old Chrysler you’ve never heard of, consider this: The Conquest was the lesser-known predecessor to the Mitsubishi 3000GT and the Dodge Stealth, and (like those cars) it was built in Japan by Mitsubishi. Mitsubishi also sold a version of the Conquest in the United States, dubbed the Starion, and the two cars were nearly identical — right down to the reasonably impressive powertrain, which was a 2.6-liter 4-cylinder with 200 horsepower, rear-wheel drive and a 5-speed manual transmission. A smaller 2.0-liter 4-cylinder was also offered.

This particular Conquest has impressively low miles, and the Carfax report confirms they’re genuine — though the Carfax also shows an accident in Colorado in the 1990s. With that said, the car looks nice enough from the photos — but unlike the later 3000GT, the Conquest doesn’t quite have a rabid fan base searching for perfect examples, so it may have a tough time finding a home. Still, it’s an interesting car — and the interior clearly has a little weirdness that could only hail from a 1980s sports car. Find a Chrysler Conquest for sale
