Welcome to the Chrysler K-Car Club Website

On behalf of the President, and all those who helped make this site possible, welcome to the New Chrysler K-Car Club Website. For those of you who are just come on board, or for those who have been here for quite some time, here are some of the key navigational areas of the website you may be interested in.

  1. The main Website, http://www.chryslerkcar.com which probably brought you here :-D
  2. Brand new Portal: portal.php. This is the place to start. It shows some of the most active topics and current announcements. It also shows people who are online. Towards the top left hand side is a Navigation Box that will take you to the Portal, the Forum, or the brand new "My Page. You can also customize these boxes by clicking the plus sign below the advance search box on the top right hand side of the screen.
  3. The Original Forum, index.php, which now has a side navigation bar for bringing you back to the portal
  4. The New "my page", activitypage.php, a socialization page in which you can add friends and make use of the new chat feature on the lower right hand side of the screen. (Please note, in order to chat with somebody, you must request to be friends in the User Control Panele, ucp.php?i=286, with that person and he or she in response has acknowledged your friendship) If you wish to use the old chatside, you can still do so at chat/
  5. An improved User Control Panel: ucp.php

We have been working hard for several months to place that back on the wesbite, and if you have any suggestions or comments, we would love to hear from you. Very soon, we will be undergoing into our third phase of revamping to website, to include adding a WikiSite for the K-Car. This will be the first ever encyclopedia for the K-Car which will include events, both past and current, as well as people, and functions of the K-Car. The authors will be none other then the members of this club. To find out more information, feel free to email me. Thankyou all and once again, welcome.

I can't get to the suggestions and comments, but then I'm not very computer literate. L.J. Bishop

Greetings to everyone from the sunshine state, I am new to this site and I presently own a 88 Plymouth Reliant K car (LE series) I paid a princely sum all of $20.00 for the car four years ago and it had 68,000 original miles on it. I just hit 90,000 on the car and it still runs great. The car has very little rust and still has all original parts including wheels, hubcaps, ect. ect. I am thinking of selling, what should I ask for the car :?: :P

Hi K-Car new friends. Strange how sometimes adversity can lead to the promise of better things. I just discovered this website two days ago. In 1985, while teaching in Spain for a semester at the Rota Naval Base, I fell in love with the Chrysler Le Baron convertible through an advertisement. My first was a 1983 Le Baron white/red upholstery, which I sold in 1995 for a 1983 Mark Cross white “woody” convertible. Two days ago, I was rear ended by a truck which damaged the right rear passenger side before the rear wheel and the bumper (the body and trim, and rear bumper). I’m looking for a source of body trim parts to fix this. I am so glad that there is a club like this so we can comfort and enjoy each other as fans of the K-Car. Right now, my “woody “needs lots of TLC. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. I’m still in shock and clueless as to exactly what to do—I will see the adjuster this week. Phil :(

Hard to believe but true, there are K-Cars in Louisiana! I just bought a 1982 Aries, 4 door, 18,000+ miles on it. Lots of paperwork, including the original bill of sale where they gave Mr. Castille $200.00 trade in for his 1965 Dodge Cornet Wagon with 40,000 miles on it. (let that one get away!) The Aries cost him $9127.77 after the $200.00 trade in. Some salesman had to buy the first round after that deal, probably list plus back then.
The car has sat for years in a garage, fuel has been drained, fuel pump reworked, carb rebuilt, and I am looking for that spacer that goes between the carb and the intake manifold. Apparently, these were poor designs in rubber, and were redone in aluminum later on. It is part # 4293755, if someone out there has one or knows where I can get one, I would be eternally grateful. I'll be doing a tranny service, oil change, probably flush the radiator and of course open up the brakes, other than that, I think we should be ready for the road. My son got in it the other day "man,not even a cassette deck"; look again, not event an FM, looney tunes all the way!!
Any advice on this model would be welcome, not too familiar with the specifics.

Found the spacer in New Hampshire, waiting on UPS!!
