new Plymouth Caravelle owner

Postby spaceblonde » Fri Jan 03, 2014 10:52 pm

Well it is official I won the bid on Ebay for a 1986 Caravelle Turbo. Hoping to jump in my old Chevy Conversion van early in the am and run up to Denver to get it. According to the auto check it is to be on 3rd owner ,, and it's coming back to Texas. last couple years in the Denver area.

2nd Plymouth 1st was a 74 Satellite wagon that the thing my brother was dateing at the time destroyed. This one is gonna be my around town jumper takeing the place of my 89 Mazda b2600i 4X4. Gotta see about breaking down and getting a new engine in the Mazda.

Will take pics and video when I get it.

Congratulations on your classic 28 year old turbo K-car. Don't let the government or the car haters junk it. 8-)

It is home ,, long long long day ,, pull out at 5:30 AM drove to Denver loaded the car and got home at 11:30 PM. 850 miles later I am dead tired and glad to not be moveing.

What I know it is a 87 SE power windows , locks ,seats , runs ok but a issue with the Battery or Alt is keeping from idling. interior is mint, body in good shape just except for a issue with the trunk lid.

Has a hiss when you hit the brakes ,, missing the AC pump. not really sure what else.

Thanks for the report!
First things first - YOU GET SOME SHUTEYE! :shock:

Sounds like a couple of small issues - hey, you get that with every old car - plenty of time to sort through it.
Don't forget the pics when you have time.
