Red face what model is my cruiser?

Hi guys and gals... I bought a 2006 Pt for the Wife. We have had the car now almost five years. Niether of us had any idea ther were so many differant models and such. We just seen this car with pwr everything tint windows big rear spoiler nine point aluminum rims cd player and the personalized display readout... it had 15,000miles on it and so we saved about $5,000 verses gettin a new one... it was about a weak afterword that we realized the rear lift gate shield was gone and front end had a wireing harness that was unpluged for fog lights only there were no fog lights...hmm... We asumed we bought a car witch had some front and rear dammage before... The book in glove box was for only a Pt cruiser. To this day I cant figure if its a touring or clasic.. It has the 2.4 of course non turbo automatic... any help would be grt...

In 2006 there was a limited,touring,base and the Dream Cruiser.The classic was only available in 2010.As stated above we would have to see pictures to determine what you have.Does your car have cruise control and power mirrors?

It sounds like you probably have the Touring edition.Someone could have removed the rear emblem without it leaving a trace.Does'nt necessarily mean it has been damaged.

Listen, I have the entire PT chronology posted on my site. It has most of the info to help you identify your type. It has colors for interior and exterior for each model. I haven't yet loaded the basic vs. option packages but it has everything else for EVERY year.

Feel free to grab a copy: Chromenut's PT Chronology

Also most of the PT's are wired for foglights even if the car didnt come with them.

sure is nice to hear we may have not bought a wrecked car after all... the car realy has been grt. as far as repairs go. We havent even had to rplace a single belt. Unfortinatly after 140,000miles we had a burnt valve. and thus we needed to no what model we had for the head gasket kit and such... we got by with just engine info however it was after we got the car runnin again that i thought it would be nice to no what model i have...Hate to leave good company... Really must get some sleep i have to replace the crank position sensor in the moring... Good night guys n gals

the fog light thing is true. i've had the right side plug hanging down since feb of last year and my dad just recently hid it for me. but i have an 07 Touring ed, her name is Eve. So we say hello, greetings from San Antonio, tx.
but mine has power windows, locks, tilt steering, the rpm gage goes up to 6k before red lining, um.....no fog lights, no pwr seats, no pt cruiser emblem on the doors but there is one on the lower right hand corner of the passenger side air bag. um, idk what other differences there are but then again, your 06 could be totally different.
i noticed on one 06 that the reverse lights on the rear bumper were rounded apposed to being like kinda squared off. like this


i hope this helps, but proly not.
