1964 Chrysler Imperial
Vehicle Identification Number: 9243184212
This four door hardtop car was a one owner car until three years ago, when the car was purchased from the original owners widow. The car had always been garaged and when the owner died in the 90’s his widow refused to part with the car and it was stored in a heated warehouse for over 20 years. This car is in immaculate condition for something un-restored and 52 years old! The body is mint condition with no rust damages. The car still has the original floor mats and owners manual. The original Rosewood paint is still good, though it has not been polished for some time. When acquired, the carburetor was rebuilt and engine wiring replaced. The push-button transmission is tight and may have been replaced before storage. Inside is all perfect and unmarred except for a small tear on top of driver’s seat. The engine has 93,840 miles but was completely overhauled at 88,000 so it only has 5,840 miles since overhaul. This car runs very well! Since acquired, the owner will only buy non-ethanol gas and supplements it with lead additive. While the car is not perfect, it is a well preserved example. The driver’s door latch assembly needs attention as does a rear window, though all glass is perfect. All instruments on the dash work. The owner does report that the front main bearing gasket is in need of replacement and the air conditioner compressor needs a rebuild. All instruments work, except clock. Right front door outside handle does not work and right rear window is stuck.
Auction Estimate: $5000-8000
