1959 Chrysler LeBaron
I wanted to restore this beautiful old car myself, but I just don't have the time. This could really be a stunner! I have had my fair share of restoring 1959 Cadillacs in South Africa, but I feel this is a far superior car. All the reports indicate that it scored better than it's rivals, Cadillac and Lincoln Continental.
Some background: Imperial was Chrysler's Corporation luxury automobile between 1955 and 1975, built to compete against Cadillac and Lincoln in the USA, and against European models such as Mercedes Adenauer 300 and Rolls Royce Silver Cloud 1,2 and 3.
Only 510 of these cars were built in 1959, and there are less than 40 left!
This car has a push button Torque Flite transmission, a great-looking dashboard, AC compressor in the trunk, all original. It is full power, has power seats, autronic eye, stainless steel roof, electric windows and seats, 413 cid, 350 HP, V8 engine.
The floors are rotted out, and trunk floor as well, but all the chrome is present. The engine turns, but it needs work. The front windshield is broken, but there is a junkyard in Fresno, California with dozens of Imperials. (The winshield was the same in other models.)
I will include in this price brand new hood hinges (not installed), as well as 4 brand new hub caps (these are being sold on ebay for $495.00 each, so that's a steal.)
If you want to see what this car could look like when restored ... check this out!
I'm asking $3500, butmake me an offer.
