I never thought I would geek out over a K-Car.
In the late 1970s Chrysler Corporation was in deep financial trouble. A government bailout kept the doors open, but only if the Pentastar could source some profitable product that could pay back the loan. The Chrysler K platform arguably saved the company with a wide range of FWD sedans, coupes, convertibles and wagons mostly powered by frugal four-cylinder engines. This platform gave rise to the first Chrysler minivans and the larger E-platform sedans, and darn near everything else they made in the '80s and to an extent, even into the '90s. But perhaps the oddest K-Car variant was the Chrysler Executive.
This car is in pretty good shape and is owned by an evident collector of K-Cars and K-based oddball Chryslers (note the TC by Maserati and a LeBaron Town & Country wagon in the driveway). For this reason I have high hopes that it will be preserved by someone who appreciates its rarity. It could use some cosmetic work, but judging by the lack of license plates and the DMV sticker on the window it's just beginning its new life in Alameda. All in good time, little limo.
