  1. Hi Alan, well it's been a while since I have heard from you .I hope you and your family is well therein sunny California. The last three days Tinker Field Air Force Base is been closed because of the blizzard ,snow storm we had here. I may get to go back to work on Friday. Alan, the person in Seattle told me he would buy the 16 valve car. Said that he owns one 16 valve and one 8 valve TC. I believe it is most likely he will choose to use this car as a parts car. I have never sold a car on the Internet before and I hope the deal goes okay. I believe that me and this man have a gentleman's agreement. I have had several other AACA members contact mean about the 90 model. And I hope everything goes well and it find a good home or put it away so the elements will not slowly destroyed this car. Many years ago when I first started messing with Chrysler's. I would come across a really nice car and inquire about purchasing it. And would get a big grandiose story about how the person that owned it was going to restore or fix it up like new. But I would go buy every once in awhile to check and see if they had changed their mine,of courses has times whent no the car would sit there and slowly disintegrate and in some cases be hauled across the scales and be crushed. I always said to myself that I would never let myself do that to a nice car that I had in my possession. So my objective in selling these two cars is so they can be utilized in keeping these neat little cars from being slowly destroyed. My plan is to stay active in this forum and maybe someday I will get the opportunity to buy and own and in my garage another TC. As always and in the future I thank you and all the members on this forum. Bob
  2. I would like to thank everyone that has showed interests in the 16 valves TC. As of today I have received a gentlemen's agreement to purchase the car. So at this time I would like to let everyone know that it appears to be sold. Thanks to everyone, Bob
  3. I have been asked and rightly so to list on the flicker pictures which is for the 90 model. I will try listing the pictures by numbers that identify the 1990 model V-6 TC. There are 6 pages of pictures on the link that has my cars on it. I will list the page number and in what picture number on that page represents the 90 model. Page 1, 1489,94,95,96, 1502,03,11,12. Page 2,pics 1413,14,15,16,17,18,19,20,21,23,26. Page 3, 1427,28,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,64,82,83,84,85. Page 4, 1452. Pages 5 and 6 pics show the 1989 16 valves. Page 1,2,3,4, any pics numbers that are not mentioned above are also for the 89 model. I hope I got this list correct but if there is some things not correct let me know. Thanks Bob:o
  4. I would like very much to talk to on the phone about a 90 model TC. Because of my dyslexia and I'm forced to use Dragon speaking program, the program and I make a lot of mistakes and I know sometimes it's not clear what I'm trying to say about the car. The reason I would like you to call me at work which is after 9:30 p.m.Oklahoma time, is because my wife does not want me to sell the TCs. She likes it that I have a hobby that keeps me close to home. The building I work in at Tinker Air Force Base is a shielded building because the equipment I work with and on, uses classified frequencies, so sometimes it's really hard to get a cell phone signal while in this building. If you cannot reach my cell please try and use my work number 405-736-2923 and as for Bob . Mark, if you have watched the national weather I'm sure you have seen we're about to have a blizzard here in Oklahoma. Since I have lived my entire 63 years within a 50 mi. radius of where I was born. I have seen a lot of changes in the climate of Oklahoma, when I was young Oklahoma was very dry and we would have 40 to 60 days of temperatures over 100°. But now the humidity is quite a bit higher in the summertime we may hit one or two days over 100 agrees. Anyway like I said the reason I want to sell these cars is basically because of the climate . Summer are too windy into a hot, and the winners are too cold and wet to try do you repairs on my cars outside. I have three restored Mercedes that I have to leave outside now, and you can't use car covers to protect them because the win will get under the cover and scratched the paint. I will be a work tonight at 9:30 p.m. if you'd like to call. Thanks again for your interest Bob
  5. These are the pictures of the 89 16 valve and 90 v-6 I have for sale. Flickr: collier70's Photostream Message me if you are interested! Thanks!
  6. I touck a bunch of pitchers today, of both my TC's. And with the help of my daughter I plan on having these pits on this forum within 24 hours. Have a nice day,Bob
  7. OK, I have some pitchers of both TCs the 1990 V6 and the 1989 16 valves. But I cannot figure out how to put them on this forum . I have them in two different folders one for each TC. But I'm not very computer literate ,So if someone can tell me how to do that I'll be happy to display the pitchers. I am not easily sure how to put them on an e-mail. If I cannot figure it out on my own, I will ask my daughter to help me tomorrow. My daughter is out of town today. Please be patient I'll get all the pitchers and details as soon as I get some help. Thanks Bob:eek:
  8. HI ALL, this is to post information about my 1990 V6 TC it is for sale. I bought this car several months ago from West Texas. It currently has a Texas title. The person I bought this car from had it listed on this forum.Tom the previous owner said he had owned the car since 1999 and this was the third transmission he had to put it, so he was selling because did not have reverse gear. I bought the car and had a transported from Texas to Oklahoma. The person that transported the car from Texas said that when he picked the car up it started, went into reverse and he drove it onto the trailer. When the car reach me an Oklahoma I started it put in reverse and then drove it into the driveway of when the house that is sitting now. I was very confused because the car went into gear foreword and reverse seemingly correct. When I checked the transmission dipstick the fluid was the color of a strawberry milkshake. So I called Tom and he said that he used Textron in this transmission. In the trunk is a new transmission filter and gasket. I did some research and found that this four-speed overdrive transmission required and would not work correctly without AFT --4. So I got 12 quts of AFT -- 4 and completely flushed the entire systems, transmission, torque converter, cooling lines and radiator cooler. I have the about 200 mi. and this transmission seems to be working fine. Of course the speedometer needs the two gears make it work properly , the speedometer reads 75,000 plus miles. All I can say about this TC is a never owned a v6 Chrysler product that the engine runs very smooth and smoke. This TC is yellow, ginger,tan. The original Infinity radio and electric antenna works good. The windows work correctly, electric door locks work to make a funny sound. This car needs new front hugs bearings. The convertible top as two small half-inch cuts on either side of the rear window . Both of the TC's that I have are about 25 mi. from my home. Within the next few days I will get a lot of pictures of both cars and with the help of my daughter put them this forum. Thank you for your inquiry, Bob
  9. HI All, to start off with a need let you know I have dyslexia. And I'm using a dragon speaking program to write this e-mail so please bear with me. Yes I have two TC's have a 1989 16 valves, five speed manual transmission. This is a complete car with an Oklahoma title. The car is yellow, ginger, tan. When I bought this car from the previous owner it was not running. I had to have the car transported and it cost me $300.00. The car is currently on Jack stands . The first thing I found it was wrong with the car was that the engine controller logic board and a whole blown it, caused by corrosion on the electrical connection. So I went on this forum and bought one original equipment engine controller and it cost of $350.00 which is currently installed in this car is electrolytic grease on the electoral connection. Shortly after I received the new engine controller a different member offered me an original equipment controller for $100 so I bought that one , because I understand that these are a standalone controller for the 16 valves car. Both of these engine controller's will go with the car . The next thing that had to be replaced was the fuel pump it is in the gas tank so I bought a new one from Napa $150.00. I installed the fuel pump and when I did I could see rest in the fuel tank. So whoever buys his car will probably want to replace fuel tank. I also put in a new in line until filter: back by the gas tank. I also removed the fuel rail and injectors cleaned and the new injectors seals and lubricated them replaced the fuel pressure return regulator on the rail and replaced it back in the intake manifold. And after talking to Alan and before I tried to start the car he suggests that I change the oil,oil filter , and cylinder compression check was correct. And remove the distributor from the engine block to make sure that it was installed at top its center. When I remove the distributor I found that the distributor had three of the wires pulled loose. So I replaced the distributor cap, roller and reinstalled it in the block at top dead center. I also removed the thermostat housing that is mounted on the top of the head because I noticed it was cracked, I the housing welded and reinstalled it on this head . I removed the radiator had it cleaned out and repainted it and the fan. I have inspected the front and rear brake rotors and brake calipers and it looks like they have been replaced and they look new. This TC has both tops but the comparable top will have to be replaced convertible top in along with the convertible top headliner, but the convertible top mechanism works fine and has an excellent class rear window. I have remove the instrument cluster because the two small black gears in the speedometer are broken but I think all the gauges work. I don't know that matters a key original radio works fine alone with the antenna. All four windows work is they should , the electric door locks work. To trunk release switch to glove compartment unlocks the trunk, but someone before I bought the car removed the key lock out of the trunk . All of the interior lights and exterior lights work is they should. The electrical mechanism that pulls the top down at the present time works. This car will come with regional owners packet, umbrella, and complete toolkit, jack, Compaq tire and tire cover. And for what ever it is worth what I bought the car there is a receipt in the glove compartment shows the 1995 that this car with 95,000 plus miles and the head rebuilt at a cost over $1800 to speedometer now shows 124,000 mi. This car will turnover and try to start. Thanks Bob

  11. Hi I have a question, please do not take my questions or comments as a judgment just food for thought. I'm just trying to understand why you would not use the 16 valves Lotus designed Turbo cylinder head engine in your LeBaron GTS. From what I have seen on this forum and other Mopar forums there are plenty of those engines out there and the parts are away more reasonable and easier to find. And they have managed to build up this engine to a lot of horsepower. I do have a 1989 complete TC car, the TC car that I have from what I can tell has not been altered or molested, everything seems to be original . I I have today installed a new and correct fuel pump, fuel pressure regulator, distributor cap and rotor. And I have 2 correct engine control . The engine turned over well and tries to start , I have removed and checked to make sure the distributor is installed in the block correctly. I will be honest I am a little bit nervous about the amount of money it will take to restore this car. The body of this car has gone through an Oklahoma hailstorm and the sheet-metal . So far my experience which is very limited , that the parts are extremely hard or very expensive to find. I'm sure you know that there was only 500 of these cars built with this engine and they all came with a five-speed manual gearbox. I know the guys and gals in this form are shuttering from the ideas of a person cannibalizing this rare in beautiful car. I may consider selling this TC to someone that would want to restore it back to original. But if no one is interested in undertaking this car. I may be willing to sell the motor and transmission and keep the body of the car for parts. My primary reason for considering to sell this car is that I do not have the money to do an adequate restoration of this car. I also have a 1990 V-6 TC which I plan had it as a driver and put it in the rotation with my Mercedes. I now have five cars that I drive two to three days each on a rotation basis. Let me know what you think, thanks Bob
  12. ghostymosty, I would like to thank you for your speedy assessment of this TC. But believe you me, I am really amazed at the details, you have been able to see. I definitely see that you are right up there with Twin cam and Hemi in my assessment. If I am right I think I have seen on some of your threads, that you do not care much for the burgundy TCs. I have been looking for some months now and the majority of these cars , in that color have really bad fading and peeling paint . Thanks again, very much appreciated. Bob
  13. Members,Look on e-bay 290525439507 There is a 1989 TC with the current bid under $ 2,000 with no reserve. I am new to this forum and the pictures may be misleading. If one fo the :)members with more experience will look at these pictures and let me now if it is worth buying. Or at least someone in the club could pick this car up. I would appreciate it, any information that someone can send it to me on my home e-mail collier70@sbcglobal.net or private message on the AACA forum. I may be crazy but I always like that Burgundy color TC. have a nice day Bob
  14. Alan, you and anyone else that maybe interested can go to my profile. I had a little bit of a problem putting the pictures on this forum. So if you go to MB91560 profile, and click on the picture of my 84 380 SL you can see the pictures, that I have upload at this point. It will take some effort and sometime for me to learn how to navigate in this forum. Because of my dyslexia it really slows me down. The speech recognition system I'm using is Dragon 7 preferred which I bought about seven years ago and never could get to work. One of the remarkable things about dyslexia is that when I turned 50 all of a sudden I could read almost anything. There is a new version Dragon speaking out 11, that requires no training to understand what you're saying. But for now me and Dragon 7 are still in training.So there will be some mistakes, I hope it's not too frustrating for the forum readers. I am sure that there are many forum participants, that may have suggestions, that could help me be more involved in this forum . I would like to thank everyone in advance for your patience. Alan, when you have sometime I like to hear about your new project you working on. In the last 30 years I did not have much time for anything but work. A little bit more about me, after maturity in the military, and in 1974, I went to trade school. I got my state licenses in plumbing ,heating and air-conditioning , and as a electrician . In 1979 I became a mechanical contractor. I wemt to work at Tinker Field Air Force Base in 1974 full-time 40 hours a week. and and in 76 started my mechanical contractor business,the name of my company was Guaranteed mechanical. Well as you know having your own business requires lots of hours worked, but I wasn't doing enough I guess so I started building houses. So for the last 30 + years, I must contest I basically worked three full-time jobs. So Alan I guess is understandable why I never really did not get involved with all the fun stuff guys do, but over the years I always squeeze in a car hobby. Well I signed off for now, have a great day. Bob
  15. Hello fellow TC forum members, I have posted some pictures of two other Mercedes that I have restored over the years and currently drives on a rotation basis, as my daily drivers. As you look at the pictures you'll see a 1984 380 SL cream color, a 1983 380 SL red in color, and a black 1991 560 SEC. Over the years I have owned and restored many Chrysler products. I still have in my possession a 1953 New Yorker deluxe two-door hardtop, 1954 New Yorker deluxe two-door hardtop, a 1955 Imperial four-door, 1959 Imperial crown two-door hardtop. Within the last year I had bought 2 TC's a 1989 16 valves five speed manual car, and 1990 V-6 four-speed automatic. As I grew up all of my family members drove Chrysler products. When I got out ther Navy in 1969 I bought a brand new Charger R/T 440 Magnum special edition car. At one time I owned 11 Imperials all were two-door hardtop's and most of them ran and drove. And it is good to be back with a Chrysler product again. I hope to have the 16 valves running soon. Once the weather improves here in Oklahoma I will take a lot of detailed pictures of my two TC's and post them on this form. I really appreciate all the help and support I have gotten from the members to date. Twin cam and Hemi are a valuable asset in this form their knowledge and experience goes without saying ,thanks Bob
