1961 Chrysler Imperial

I bought this car over a year ago. It was supposed to be a restored 61 Imperial. The car I was sold and the car that sold up were two different things. Sadly, anyone in the car world has had to deal with this before. I couldn't decide what to do with the car when it arrived. Until then, we did some upgrading to make it a daily driver. The intake/carb/plug wires and so on were updated, making the car drive like a dream. The car instantly fires up. We rebuilt the entire front suspension. See pictures to see the quality of the work. This car came out of California, not sure how long it was there . It is painted a rose pink color. From 5' away, it looks great. It is a little light in some area's, there are touch ups done on it. There are pictures of all of this you'll see shortly. There is some slight bubbling on the driver side and passenger side rear door. Pictures included of this as well. The trim/chrome is in excellent shape. It appears new bumpers were purchased at some point by the previous owner. The interior is in good shape, but does show wear from being in the heat. The dash has a crack (pictured) and the oblong steering wheel has been wrapped. Passenger side rear hubcap is missing the imperial emblem. There is a scratch in the rear glass (picture provided). The steering wheel is not upside down, just how I had it when I parked it to take pictures. Gauges do work as do the lights and dash lights. I can't confirm if auto pilot works. Windows do roll up and down under power. The AC does not currently work. I can't stress enough that this car runs and drives excellent. For someone wanting a nice driver quality car that will be of little maintenance, this car is perfect. I would have zero concern driving this car anywhere. The gas tank was over filled. When putting it on the trailer to move it to storage, gas went out the over flow. This is not a perfect car, but far from a beater. My original plan was to do a driveline restoration. The car was sold to me as a fully restored car, which it obviously is not. Based off the build tag, it appears the car was EE1 which was midnight blue and a grey interior. This is not a factory color. Someone is going to really enjoy this car. If you have any questions, please ask. Don't bid if you can't buy. Names with no feedback will be canceled. I can hold the car in storage for up to 30 days. Payment must be made prior to pick up and title is in hand.

This is heavily optioned cars. Dual mirror, ac, roof inserts, auto pilot, etc. I can't stress enough that the trim/chrome is in excellent condition. You won't be disappointed in the car. You can see in the background, I'm a big mopar guy. I'm very hard when describing a car, which is why my feedback is 100%. Let me know if you have any questions.
