The third-generation Chrysler LeBaron is not a car typically associated with high performance.

However, this special machine available on auction website Bring a Trailer might just manage to change your mind.

With a potential top speed in excess of 220 mph, and even a Guinness World Record under its belt, this is anything but your grandfather’s LeBaron.

Born to run

By “different” we mean that it’s a 1984 Chrysler LeBaron that’s been converted from a stock car to an open road high-speed race car. Its top speed during the run was an astonishing 224 mph (360 km/h), and if you’d like it in your garage, you can place a bid on Bring a Trailer.

This 1987 Chrysler LeBaron has run the Busch series, ARCA, and is now a open-road racer that moves out ! In the ARCA class, you could still find Chrysler -bodied cars, including the coupe version of the LeBaron …you know they made coupes as well as convertibles, don’t you?

Initially it wore a Buick Somerset-inspired bodyshell. It was subsequently bought by a Chrysler-backed racing team, who added the LeBaron design and a 383-cubic inch Dodge NASCAR V-8 racing engine.

Several more years of racing in the ARCA series followed, before the car was finally sold to famed Open Road racer Chuck Shafer in 1995.

In order to accomodate Shafer, and his navigator Gary Bockman, modifications were made including the installation of a pair of bucket racing seats and extra roll bars.

The package worked, as Shafer and Bockman took victory in the 1999 Silver State Challenge, clocking an average speed of 199.99 mph along the route.

Setting new records in the desert sun

This led to the race being branded as the “fastest road race in the world” by the Guinness World Records company.

It was on this occasion that the LeBaron posted a recorded top speed of 224 mph – comfortably quicker than what a usual ‘87 Chrysler would hit on a public highway.

Shafer sadly passed away in the early 2000s, with the car then left unused until 2007. Then it was again entered in the Silver State Classic, driven by Gary Bockman. Shafer’s wife Cinde served as the navigator, with the duo finishing seventh in the 150 mph class.

As one commenter on Bring a Trailer has noted: “Forget the fact that this car has a LeBaron body. The body doesn’t matter. The AVERAGING of 207.8 mph does… for ninety miles!! On a public high desert highway”. A neat reminder of just how fast this car is.

To bag this true record-breaking LeBaron, you’ll need to be almost as quick as the Mopar machine itself. Bidding closes on Thursday September 12th, meaning you will just miss out on the chance to race in the Silver State Classic this year.
