1968 Chrysler ImperialAmazing 1968 Imperial Lebaron with 33,000 original miles in spectacular condition. These Lebarons were the top of the line model in 1968 and today are almost impossible to find in unmolested condition. If you are looking for possibly the best 68 LeBaron out there then this is probably it, if you are looking for a deal this is not the car for you. I have owned many Imperials including the 1964 Oval rear window Ghia limousine and other Ghias as well as many convertibles and these cars are absolutely a joy to own and show. The Imperial Lebaron represents the best cars Chrysler ever built.
Let me start by saying that this LeBaron has the best original chrome of any car I have ever owned and I've owned close to 1000 cars over the years. This is one of the nicest original cars I have ever seen or owned. All of the chrome and stainless is as close to perfect as you are going to find on any 48 year old car.
I installed digital sequential turn signals in the rear tail lights and they make this probably the coolest Lebaron ever, these should have been a Chrysler factory optio, they are sweet and work perfectly and can easily be removed if you don't like them .
I have also had the windows professionally softly tinted which make for a cooler lower look the the Lebaron high roof. this can be removed easily but i doubt anyone would do that.
The paint has been water sanded and polished and has an absolutely beautiful finish, the entire car was refinished in its original burgundy paint years ago just to freshen up the original finish but there was absolutely no body repairs done anywhere on the car. There are literally no scratches or dents anywhere on this car and all of the body panels are laser straight.
The original vinyl roof is in amazing condition and makes the Lebaron what it is, a personal 5 passenger limousine with the smaller limousine style rear window.
The Black leather interior is completely original including the black plush carpets and the entire interior is as good as the day it left the factory and still retains its factory new car smell. The leather is soft and supple and the dash board is perfect and has no signs of cracking anywhere.The original interior wood trim is immaculate and all interior chrome beautiful and pit free. The door panels are perfect. The head liner is perfect.
The original triple whitewall tires remain on the original rims in individual storage bags and are included with the car for show purposes. The car has a set of Vogue tires with the striking white and gold sidewalls sitting on a set of the most beautiful and very expensive Dayton true spoke wire wheels. These wheels really set this car apart from any other Lebaron and look fantastic on this car. The true spoke wrench is included.
The engine is the original 440 CI Mopar power plant that is original to this car and has never been touched, nor. does it need to be. The engine starts at the turn of the key and is so quiet you can hardly hear it run. The kick down works perfectly. The transmission works as it should and shifts so smoothly you can hardly tell it's changing gears.
The trunk is original and spotless and has its original spare tire with carpeted tire cover and perfect black original carpeting. All the the original weather stripping is perfect on the car and water tight.
The car is extremely well optioned includingCruise controlAutomatic climate controlPower windows and vent windowsPower door locksTilt telescopic wheelDual power seats with passenger reclinerPower trunkAM/FM radio with reverb switchSeparate working original 8 trackPower antennaSentinal head lights with auto dimingLighting groupRear assist strapsFloor mattsTrunk MattVanity mirrorsFactory tinted glass
All power options work correctlyThe AC has been upgraded and blows cold but does have a slow leak that should be an easy fix.
The recent repairs includeRebuilt front brake calipers and new padsRebuilt original carburetorFull complete tune upBrand new original style heavy duty radiatorBrand new starter motor
This is a beautiful car to own and drive. It drives effortlessly at highway speeds and runs very cool and never overheats
I am selling this car because I don't drive it and it is a shame to let it sit in my storage garage.
Please do not bid on this car if you cannot afford to pay without issues
All questions will be answered, the car is located in Toronto and can be easily exported back to the U.S.
