Default Want another PT - few questions

I traded in my 2002 Limited almost 2 years ago and miss it but it was at that point where everything was starting to go or needed replacing. Tranny and cooling fans went and timing belt, water pump, shocks/struts, etc were coming. Had close to 75K on it.

I KNOW any car with over 70K is looking for major repair expenses and will use that to negotiate, BUT my major issue is I had a LIMITED and the majority I find are TOURINGS. Would you let that be a deciding factor? I know I get cloth seats, smaller wheels, std suspension and probably other things I can't remember. Radio, sun roof, CD, etc are not issues.

I'm especially looking for a Tangering Pearl PT - with newer head & tail lights (what year did those change) and preferably the bigger front facia.

Thoughts apprecited

I was going to help you out by looking at all the colors from 2001 to 2009 but I don't see Tangering Pearl color anywhere. You might look this guide over and see if you might be thinking of a different color and you can see what years it came out.

The only year that Tangerine Pearlcoat came out was 2007.

Keep in mind PT's came in all kinds of configurations and doesn't matter if it was a base, touring or limited. When we looked for my wife a PT, found all kinds of weird combos. I saw base models with leather seats, cruise, fog lights, etc..as i also saw toruings without fogs and cruise

Thanks for the color info. I had no idea it was only that one year. Seems like I need to broaden my color choice. I had an inferno Red before. Also like the 2 tone black & silver (I have a Grand National which is Black with a silver gray interior). What color is the older Dream Cruisers? I thought they were a Tangerine too?

2002 = gold (Dream Series)
2003 = tangerine (Dream Series 2)
2004 = black over silver (might be other colors also) (Dream Series 3)
2005 = deep lava red, convertible only (Dream Series 4)
2006 = bright yellow (Route 66 edition)
2009 = black over silver, bright red interior (Dream Series 5)



Hope I got that right.

The 2004 series 3 dream cruisers were Midnight blue pearlcoat over silver with dark blue tinted windows.

The 2003 series 2 dream cruisers were Tangerine pearlcoat and that color was reissued in 2007 on the "normal" PTs.

Several of our owners here have the 2003 Tangerine pearlcoat PTs.

That's cool to know. I see a dark blue over silver all the time.

What year did the headlights change (to scalloped bottom) and the rears went from orange to white over red?

Also - are the complete front fascias interchangable?

Not sure about interchangeable but the face lift for the exterior and interior was in 2006.

The 2nd gen. cruiser started in 2006. The head lights and tail lights remained the same until the last year of production in 2010.

Don't believe anything about the fascias on the 1st and 2nd gen. are inchangeable, but I no expert. Someone will chime in if I'm wrong. That being said, I believe PT Panel has an 06 2nd gen. that he converted to a panel cruiser and installed a PTease 1st gen. custom front end on it. So anything is possible.
