And I'm pretty sure the Chrysler plant is actually in Fenton, which IS in
Missouri. And I think the LeBarons were partially made in the old
Jefferson Assembly building in Detroit and mine was a convetible. I think
those went up to Canada for the top conversion. It's been a long time,
I may be wrong.
Chrysler also has a plant in my home town, Perrysburg, Ohio. I think they
currently make steering columns there, but they're converting it (back) to
making engines. Back before they built the new factory in '67, I think the
facility had made Sherman tank engines in WWII.
Anyway, it was a great car despite those dang 10mm nuts, and the first car
I had an APRS tracker in. My original antenna mount was homebrewed and
when I keyed the mic, it made the interior lights come on.
