    Wow.

    It's the first time in my 35 years of american cars hobbying that I see a part of a Chrysler Turbine for sale. But if I were you, I'd put that thing on eBay. I'm pretty sure it would go higher than that.

    Dang, so tempting. I'm a big Turbine enthusiast. I've seen 5 of the remaining Turbines; 4 left to go. I can't justify spending that for something that will sit on a shelf though, especially with the currency conversion rate now. :(

    Do you have any of the history of this item? How did it come to be off the car?

    Alot of the turbine's themselves were taken out before scrapping the bodies, because they were made in the states. I'm guessing a smart loader operator, or possibly former owner, or dealership employee removed it. Given it's coolness factor and knowing the car's fate. Probably the neatest item ever posted for sale on this forum.
