Description

This 1987 Chrysler LeBaron is a tube-frame race car that was originally campaigned in multiple stock car series before being converted for open-road high-speed events. Subsequent achievements included winning the Silver State Classic Challenge in 1999, establishing a Guinness World Record for average speed at the Nevada Open Road Challenge in 2000, and being featured at the World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon. Power is from a Dodge 358ci V8 paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, and the race-prepped interior features a fire suppression system, Simpson harnesses, and a Terratrip rally computer. Fluids flushes and an inspection were reportedly carried out in preparation for sale. This Chrysler LeBaron racer is offered by the selling dealer on behalf of its current owner with period articles and race results, Guinness World Record paperwork, and an Oregon bill of sale.The car was originally built as a Buick Somerset for the Busch stock car series, in which it was driven by Patty Moise-Sawyer for Hope Motorsports from 1987 through 1989. A Chrysler-backed team purchased the car in 1990, re-bodied it as a LeBaron, and installed the 358ci Dodge NASCAR Truck series engine. The car was campaigned in the ARCA series for the following several years before being acquired by Chuck Shafer in 1995 to compete in the open-road Silver State Challenge. The body, suspension, gearing, and safety specifications were modified for the high speed attempt, and Shafer and navigator Gary Bockman won the event in 1999 with an average speed of 197.9932 mph. The following year, the team won the Nevada Open Road Challenge with an average speed of 207.8 mph and a top trap speed of 224 mph.Chuck Schafer passed away several years after the late-1990s achievements, and the car subsequently sat until being recommissioned for the 2007 Silver State Challenge with his wife Cinde as the navigator and Bockman as the driver. The on-board video above shows the LeBaron competing in the 150 mph category, where it earned seventh place. The car was subsequently displayed for two years at the World of Speed Museum in Wilsonville, Oregon after the facility opened in 2015.The exterior is finished in white and features checkered flag graphics and racing number 1. The roof and front splitter were lowered and a rear under tray/diffuser was added in preparation for the Silver State Classic Challenge. The side windows are removable, and the hood and deck lid are retained with pins. 15″ wheels are mounted with Goodyear Eagle racing slicks.The interior is painted orange and features a tubular space frame which received additional crash protection bars when the car was converted for open road racing. Twin ButlerBuilt racing seats are fitted with Simpson racing harnesses. A fire suppression systems features a pull trigger mounted to the dash, and an additional bottle is fitted between the seats.Driver inputs include a removable 3-spoke steering wheel and a Hurst shifter. A custom dashboard panel includes a push-button starter and AutoMeter instrumentation. A Terratrip rally computer is installed in front of the navigator seat and has reportedly been modified for high speed runs.The 358ci Dodge V8 reportedly came from a NASCAR Truck Series racer and is said to have been last rebuilt in 2007 by Schnell Automotive in Portland, Oregon. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a Tex Racing 4-speed manual transmission and a quick-change floating 9″ differential. A fluid flush and inspection were reportedly performed by Pat McFall of FMR Racing in preparation for sale.The coil-spring suspension is reportedly set up for high-speed open road races, and disc brakes are equipped at all four corners. Photos of the underside show the drivetrain, suspension, and sheet metal modifications as well as a custom side-exit exhaust system.
