1988 Plymouth Caravelle
The Caravelle was a sedan sold in the United States from 1985 to 1988. It was first sold in Canada two years earlier, in 1983. The sedan was based on the E body platform, while the coupe version was based on the Chrysler's infamous K-body platform. If you know K cars, you know that these were boxy cars that epitomized a lack of design creativity in the 1980's.

The Caravelle was a twin to the Dodge 600. They replaced the E-class Chryslers by essentially taking the old car design and adding a new grille, as if any common car buyer is going to know the difference. This car was a step above the Reliant K, while sitting below the more upscale rear wheel drive Gran Fury.

There was only one trim level for the 1985 Caravelles. Despite this, or perhaps because of it, Plymouth threw in a bunch of standard features that were not common in most base model cars at the time, including power windows and doors, cruise control, and power mirrors.

Some minor design improvements were made in 1986, with many of those sharp edges and corners rounded off to make it look like a car that could actually push through the air in front of it, instead of a bunch of blocks on wheels. The base model lost some standard features, which were now all included on the Caravelle SE trim.

Though most of these cars were sold with the I4 engine making a paltry 100 horsepower, there was a turbocharged I4 engine sold in some models that could make 146 horsepower.

These cars still show up from time to time on the used car market in my area. If you are looking to buy one, make sure to compare with the prices on eBay before you make a purchase. If you already own a Caravelle, you can also find some very cheap parts on the popular online auction site.
