CC Outtake: 1994 Chrysler LeBaron – Acclaimed

I spotted this Chrysler LeBaron sedan Friday during lunch hour. While most LeBarons seemed to have the Button-Tufted Brougham package, this one stood out  by its lack of wire wheel covers and Fifth Avenue-style landau top.

Walking around the car, nothing seemed amiss, until I got to the front…

where I was greeted with a Plymouth Acclaim grille below the “crystal” Chrysler-specific hood ornament. My guess is that this car got bumped in the nose at some point, and it was easier to find a Plymouth grille than the Chrysler waterfall version. And as much as I am a Brougham fan, even I think these LeBarons look better without the Landau roof, though I can appreciate all the extra chrome!
