I also remember reading somewhere that they also increased the size of the cylinder head bolts for 85 & 86 or something like that. Not sure but some light goes on in my head relating to that engine. Of course it could be pre-senility on my part! 😁1984 still had the 4 lug nut wheels. 1985-on had the 5 lug wheels.
Yes. It's an '84. 66K original miles. 1 previous owner.
The car came with the original sales brochure as well.
I hadn't noticed that before. I was kind of hoping to install the larger 'Ninja' rims on it when I replace the tires.1984 still had the 4 lug nut wheels. 1985-on had the 5 lug wheels.
I went to training for the G-cars at Tappan Zee back in Summer 1983.
K-derivatives like this and the minivans made 1984 a very good year at Chrysler.
Thanks!That's such a nice car. Congratulations.
I just happened across it. I was driving to the other side of the state to take pictures and saw it sitting on a B lot. Of course, I had to stop it. I took a test drive, went home and thought about it for a couple of days. I decided I wasn't going to buy it and told them as much. After talking it over with my brother and girlfriend, both of whom encouraged me to purchase it, I called and told them I'd buy it pending another, longer test drive.That is one BEAUTIFUL Car! If I came across one like this, I would be very tempted to purchase! Congratulations on you find.
If I recall, they were made by AVS ?? The people who make a bunch of window vents. I might have got them from J C Whitney; not sure as it was way back when! I had them in clear also in addition to the somewhat translucent black tinted pictured. 😋I had never seen the headlight covers like pictured
I do not have the tinted covers. Only the clear ones. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. Maybe keep them around for a car show or something. I don't want to drive with them. I imagine they'd get pretty torn.If I recall, they were made by AVS ?? The people who make a bunch of window vents. I might have got them from J C Whitney; not sure as it was way back when!

By the way, the headlight covers were easily removed by pushing gently sideways. They came with 2 small stick on channels that attached along the sides of each cover. You could NOT drive at night with the dark covers on.
Thanks. I can't wait to get it back on the road. I started it up and let it idle for a little bit. Another 2 months of winter, though.What a beauty! I had an 84 Laser XE Turbo that looked a lot like that. I had the same wheels too. Mine were 5 lug and not 4. Maybe because it was a Chrysler and not a Dodge? IDK Blew away a lot of bowties and blue ovals in that car and got away from the THP once.
I'm guessing there is a conversion kit/piece. I'll have to dig out the Ninja rims when I move the car out of the garage. I know they're not in as good of shape as the rims that are on it. We'll see.The Laser was also 4 lug in 1984. But it’s a fairly easy swap to 5 lug.
The ones I had were quite rigid. They were surrounded by a glued on rubber framing that helped to seal them in the light housing and kept them from vibrating. I always used them, once I got them as they helped keep the headlamps clean but mostly because I felt they helped aerodynamics. They might have gotten me 1/10th of a gallon better mileage, lol. It was the contrast that I liked the best, black against the bright red. I got many compliments on the car, as they made it stand out somewhat. You might not have noticed, but I also had hood pins on it. That was not done for racing, like most people thought, it was to detract from some damage to the hood from a damn deer that darted across in front of me at night! To each his own! 😁do not have the tinted covers. Only the clear ones. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them. Maybe keep them around for a car show or something. I don't want to drive with them.
