(By Tom Lohnes) – Remember Plymouth? Well, I don’t because those got discontinued well before I was alive, but I do know their history. The last Plymouth ever sold new is for sale, and it’s a pristine example of a car that you’ll likely never find a remotely nice version of again. A Neon.
Yes, you can buy a mint-condition 2001 Plymouth Neon in its top-of-the-line LX trim with only 68 miles on the clock. This is an odd time capsule of a car, because everything in here is exactly to factory spec. This one is the enthusiast special too, if that even exists in a Neon. Equipped with the 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, this custom-ordered model has a 5-speed manual to enhance your driving experience in one of the worse cars ever made. Inside, this car looks like it hasn’t been touched. With the leather in perfect shape, and the front-only power windows working like new. The only sight of this car’s 20-year age is the slight surface rust on the undercarriage, but that is quite literally it.
So, would you grab this Neon? Personally, I would because this is such a rare thing to find one of these in like-new shape. The BringATrailer auction is currently at $14,000, so good luck. This is crazy!
