That sure looks familiar. Belongs to a single woman from the Tampa Bay PT Cruiser Club.

Your talking:

Whitewall tires (4)
Baby moon hubcaps and trim rings (8 pieces)
Visor
chrome bumper cover (front)
Chrome bumper cover (rear)
Continental Tire kit
Running boards (2)
Upper and lower chrome grill





Fast guess $1500 - $2500

Like CREWZEN said 1 to 2k, if you do assembly yourself.

Sweet thats about in my price range and some of the things I wouldnt really want like the back part. Hopefully I can find an old one for 4-5 grand in decent shape then put 1-2 grand into it. Im only 20 but I just love the retro style and am sick and tired of my 97 grand am which looks like everything else on the road.

Yep, the only thing that REALLY looks like a PT is another PT. Then the modding begins. Of course no one here has done much in the way of mods to our PTs.: rofl::mexic an-wave:

biggest thing if you are going to do a theme carry the theme thru the whole car that pics a good example of this not happening if you want a retro look lose the smoke ventvisors and go with a chrome in channel version other than that it doesnt look bad the nice thing about a pt is no two are ever alike

And good luck in finding that chrome bumper cover - I've been looking for one for a long time.

Since PTs are no longer being built by Chrysler, the aftermarket is drying up somewhat. Thank goodness for Maggie at Race and Street!
