Description for Chrysler TC by Maserati 1989

Thanks for taking the time to view the auction for my 1989 Chrysler TC by Maserati with the rare 16v Masi motor with only 11,976 miles!
Only 15 of these exact cars ever existed! (see paper, 1989 Cabernet ext, Bordeaux int, California Emissions, black soft top)
I have worked very hard on this car and while it may look like your average TC, this is actually one of the fastest TC's in the United States. I bought the car with 9000 miles and wanted to ensure the engine was really a 9k mile motor. I had the motor pulled and the top end rebuilt. The bottom end was in such amazing shape i left it as is. While the motor was out of the car I decided to really make this car my own. All of the work that was done to the car was professionally done by a very reputable turbo dodge mechanic who is very well known in this area and in the turbo dodge world.
Here is a short list (there is so much more, but these are the main points):
-Stock IHI turbo replaced with t3/t4 .50 trim (stock turbo included, only 9000 miles and in great shape)- 3 bar map sensor-+40 injectors-Socketed Smec with custom tune for 12lbs of boost. The tune is a very safe tune for reliability. I will include an ostrich 2.0 if you decide you would like to tweak this to get more out of this car.-Long radiator with large intercooler (see pics).-Stock Transmission replaced with a 92 523 that currently has a stage 3, six puck clutch to handle the extra power. (stock transmission included, 9000 miles and in great shape)-Poly motor mounts
There is so much more that has been done with this car, over $2500 in parts for the initial build. I have since stuck a lot more into the car to ensure it is the best car I can have. I spared no expense to make this my dream TC running wise. This car may be in Iowa, but it has never seen a winter in its life and is 100% rust free. I make sure to cover and store this car every winter. I have also never raced this car, beat this car, or even taken this car above 24 lbs of boost. It is built to last and I intended for it to last
This car is an amazing example of what these cars can be, but i am sorry to say that the seats and the armrest could use some love. Unfortunately the original owner must have left this beauty out in the sun more than it should have been and while the seats aren't split or torn, they are cracked. They are still super comfortable and this car is the most comfortable turbo dodge of this era, but my regret is still that I wasn't able to finish those seats. Also the air conditioner is not installed. I have every single part and they are all in working order. They would just need to be installed and the system recharged. I just never saw a point to reinstall it after the build, it's a convertible and i live in Iowa.
If you do not like the modifications done to the car, I still have every single original part from the car for you to convert it back to stock
Reserve is set way below what I have into this car. I am not trying to get rich with this auction, its just time to focus on the family and get out of the turbo dodge world. Like i stated above, i have every single part that was pulled from the car in storage that will go along with the car. Everything on this car works as it should, and the only issue is the seats and armrest being slightly aged. I would trust to drive this anywhere and will gladly assist with delivery of up to 180 miles from its current location if wanted (the cruise control still works well!). Otherwise the buyer is responsible for pickup or delivery. I will help however I can. This car will be listed locally as well so
Please feel free to message with any questions.
