For Sale: 1971 Chrysler Imperial in Sparta, New Jersey

$12,000 (OBO)  

Vehicle Description

1971 Chrysler Imperial (LeBaron) for sale. $12,000/OBO. VIN# YM43T1C131009. Purchased from auction in South Dakota. Body in good condition: very little rust on panels or undercarriage. Trunk in very good, i. e. clean, condition. Looks like it had a paint job. No gaps or tears in vinyl roofing or around back window. Interior is very nice: no rips or tears in fabric. Repairs made (paperwork available): replaced master cylinder, checked & repaired exhaust leak, checked gas cap issue, replaced motor mounts; oil change. * Engine seems to be in good condition: old, of course. It has that characteristic “rumble” when you start it & drive! * Power options throughout, but: driver's seat works fine, except it does not go up or tilt (I forget which). Windows in working condition, but back/rear windows can have issues with closing fully. Ventilation windows work, but do not always close tightly; also, a little crack in glass of one of the ventilation windows. * Hidden headlights work perfectly, i. e. opening & closing. * Wipers work & windshield washer works—but, no fluid comes out (either empty—I can check—or needs some repair). * Directional signals, front & back, work; passenger-side blinker on the hood does not work. Passenger-side brake light does not work. * Fans work. * A/C available, but does not seem to work. * I am 75% sure it has Cruise Control. The controls do seem to be there in directional signal stalk, but the symbols/words have been worn off. If there, it does not work. * Horn does not work. * Radio is AM/FM, but only works FM. * Gas gauge does not work; speedometer does not work. * Little repairs needed, like: clock does not work; rearview mirror and side mirrors are a little loose. I have had it looked over by a mechanic specializing on classic vehicles. He says car, especially body, is in good shape. After his recent repairs, no major, “must-do-now” problems. Car is roadworthy. A good little project car that can still be driven regularly. Why selling? Call me a “dilettante,” but I want something closer to perfect.
