1987 CHRYSLER LeBaron

LEBARON — SERIES J/K — FOUR — Two completely different LeBarons appeared this year: a four-door sedan and station wagon carrying on the same style as before, on the K-car platform; plus a dramatically new two-door coupe and convertible. The curvaceous two-doors, long in hood and with a short decklid, featured hidden headlamps, a vertical-bar grille, and what some called a “Coke bottle” profile. Both rode on a lengthened Daytona platform with P185/70R14 tires and came with a standard five-speed manual gearbox. Bigger tires were available. Sedans carried a 2.2-liter four-cylinder engine; all other LeBarons came with the 2.5-liter version, which had a balance shaft. All models had the turbocharged engine option. A three-speed automatic was standard on the sedan/wagon, optional on the coupe/convertible.
