This is a complete car; I have all badges and parts that belong on the car with the exception of the plastic badge that goes on the front header panel in front of the hood. There are some extra pieces that go with the car. ( gauge panel and gauges dashboard speaker grill steering wheel horn ring and center cap a 1955 imperial steering box some extra taillight assemblies) I had a search done by Chrysler Heritage Association. It includes build sheet options and the date that the car was built.( October 311955) The car has some small dents here and there. The interior color has been changed to black from the original green color.The seats were dirty and the paint on the door window frames was virtually none existent. The seats are ok with the exception of the driver side seatback being worn considerably. I have the seats covered with Mexican blankets as seen in the pics. There is no headliner in the car but have all the bows for the headliner.The floor boards are in good condition the front has some small holes but nothing that affects the integrity of the floor. The trunk floor pan is in need of repair has a number of holes. The body is in very good condition with only I believe is 3 spots of rust thru as shown in the pics. Frame is in very good condition. All gauges work except speedo was working then stopped I think the cable went bad. The mileage on the car showed 78000 at the time but I don't know what the actual mileage is.All lights work. Door switches all work map lights all work. Trunk light works added led strip lights under hood. Added 4 way emergencyflashers to the wiring system.Dome light does not have a lens on it have seen them on ebay for about $40.00. Don't know if radio works have not tried it since rewiring. Car has considerable exhaust leaks at the manifolds and head pipe. New manifold gasket set is included with the car I know I have one head pipe gasket possibly both that would be included also. The steering wheel is bare to the rim except where someone tried to fix with bondo. All window and door rubber needs replacing. I have been tried to be totally honest about the car and have included everything that I can think of. The car is registered and I do drive it when time permits.

The car is being sold as is and there is NO WARRANTY.Payment method is Paypal or cash in person only. No other forms of payment are accepted. I DO NOT SHIP. I will however assist your transporter in loading. I recommend transporting in an enclosed trailer due to the window and door rubber needing to be replaced as I am sure that it will leak and possibly cause damage to the interior.
