Our February Home Page Mopar is a 1990 Chrysler TC by Maserati. Here is the story by Les, Owner. Be sure to either click on the car for more photos or the logo at the bottom of the story here.
I picked my Chrysler TC by Maserati because it is one of the most unique cars ever made by Chrysler. As you can recall Chrysler was going through a tough time in the last 80’s and brought in Lee Iacocca form Ford. He wanted to get into the high end sports cars to compete with Mercedes Benz and the Jaguar sport cars. So he teamed up with Maserati. They only built the TC’s in 1989, 1990 ,1991. They made a total of only 7,319 cars during the three years. In 1989 they produced 938 5 speed turbo charged 4 cylinder overhead cam and about 820 automatic turbos in 1990 the 5 speed s were the same as 89 but the Automatics were V-6 front wheel drive. The parts were produced in the States and shipped to Italy. The interior is all Italian leather. The TC in the name is for Touring Coupe. And that it is The car drives like an Impereal The seat are also as comfortable. It is a 2 seat convertible and comes with a removable hard top or the winter. The price in 1990 was a little over $38,000.,00. The reason it did not sell was 2 fold the economy at the time. And poor marketing, Chrysler wanted it to be special and only allowed 300 dealers to sell them.
Since they were being built in Italy each one have to be ordered and took a while to get here. The dealers were using a bait and switch on people to the $18.000.00 Le Baron. I think that this car has a great story and will be a very diserable car in the near future. The car comes with a 10 speaker stereo system. An umbrella a tool kit with leather gloves so as to not get your hands dirty.
Chrysler TC by Maserati 1990 My Chrysler TC by Maserati is a 1990. They were built in 1989, 1990, & 1991. The economy and poor marketing hurt the TC. Chrysler only allowed 300 dealers in the U.S. To sell them. And they sold for $38,000. Since they were built in Italy. It took time to get them. So the dealers used them to draw people in to them and switched them to the Le Baron. The said you could have the TC for $38,000 and wait 3 months to get it, or you could buy this Le Baron convertible for $18,000.
