1990 Chrysler TC Turbo 2dr Convertible

Review

I purchased my 1989 year model TC in 2/95 with 88600 miles on the odometer. It was built in 11/88. It has weathered the years well. It is Exotic red with a Ginger interior. It is equipped with the 2.2L turbo 8 valve engine with an intercooler. I have modified it by incorporating the 5 speed manual transaxle from a Dodge Daytona. With this combination, the car is a willing performer yet very easy on fuel, getting consistent fuel mileage in the 30+ MPG range. It has been an extremely reliable car, needing very little maintenance over the years beyond normal service. Major repairs have been replacement of the head gasket and timing belt as a preventive measure when I purchased the car.

Favorite Features

Weighing in at 3355 lb., more than any other 'K' platform car, it's road handling and feel is outstanding. With the top down, it is great fun with the wind in the hair, with the fiberglass top attached it is quiet as any other closed car.

Suggested Improvements

Chrysler missed the mark when they only linked a 3 speed automatic transaxle to this engine. With the higher output engine and 5 speed transaxle from the Dodge Daytona Shelby, this car would have appealed to so many more buyers.
