1991 Chrysler TC by Maserati

Time has not been kind to the Chrysler TC by Maserati. This car is kind of like the Rodney Dangerfield of the automotive realm: it gets no respect. But unlike Dangerfield, there's nothing really funny about this vehicle. I saw one of these vehicles on the road over the weekend and it got me to thinking: exactly what kind of person collects a car like this? Someone who wants a Maserati on the cheap? Fans of orphan cars? Whatever the case may be, this convertible built on a K-car chassis that can attribute its existence between the bond forged when Lee Iacocca worked with Alejandro De Tomaso on the De Tomaso Pantera sports car is a rarely seen piece these days made up of an amalgam of parts from various suppliers and automotive manufacturers. In the three years it existed, it had three different engine and transmission combinations. This 1991 model for sale in Florida sports the Chrysler V6/4-speed automatic drivetrain.

Take a look at this 1991 Chrysler TC by Maserati convertible. A real collector's car! Everything is original. Everything works: leather interior, wood accent trim, power windows, door locks and mirrors, dual power seats, rear defogger, cruise control, A/C, AM/FM/Cass w/added CD player, gas release, adjustable steering column, removable hard top. Carfax verified 32,345 miles with a Carfax buyback guarantee.

Condition report: soft top goes up manually only, some wear on the leather seats and center console, see pictures.

It seems there are a fair amount of low mileage TCs out there, even though they made just 7,300 of these cars over its production run. Did those who snapped them up when new think this would be a future collector car? Who knows. Nowadays, you can get these on the cheap. The best TC might run you around $10,000 to $12,000. This example is certainly presentable with a few flaws - mainly the convertible top - that hold it back. Somewhere around $6,000 to $7,000 will probably take it.
