20 Year Time Traveler: This 2001 Neon Has 68 Miles On It, Leather, A Stick, and a Sky-Rocketing Price Tag

(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!

    “One of the worst cars ever made”. Really?? In comparison to what and in what way??

    The biggest problem with these cars was the owner talent pool. Most of them were driven to an early death by people with no driving talent and even less brains and the SRT-4 cars were thrashed even harder. My mom bought her 2005 SXT new and still loves it. It’s one of the best cars she’s ever owned. All it does is start, run, and drive EVERY day and never gives her any problems. What more do you want from a daily driver?
