1968 Chrysler Imperial Lebaron 4 door Hardtop. Rare car, only 1,852 produced. Very few of these cars left in existence and hardly any in this condition. The car shows approximately 46,000 miles and this appears to be original due to the condition of the car and these cars simply were not driven that much if a person could afford one in 1968.
Car is equipped with a strong running 350 horsepower 440 V8 engine and automatic transmission. The engine and transmission run and work as they should. Engine starts up easily, no smoke, no leaks. Exhaust is very quiet and in good condition. Very well cared for original classic. Get in and drive anywhere.
The interior is in excellent condition. I have owned several of these cars and have never seen an interior as nice as this, or with this color combination. No rips or tears in seats, headliner, or rug. Dash is perfect. The interior is truly a must see for a 50 year old car. Equipped with telescoping wheel and power antenna. Both work. Radio and all lights work. The power seats work. All 4 power windows work. The trunk is in excellent condition as is the rug, spare tire, and spare tire cover. It comes with a copy of the original destination paperwork, original sale documentation, and the owners manual.
The exterior was professionally repainted the original color in 2002. It still looks and shines like brand new with only a few minor imperfections, including a nick or scratch. Nothing at all major and you would really have to look to find these imperfections. The paint shines like show quality. The exterior is 100% rust free and all the wheel wells, rockers and dog legs are spotless and rust free. The vinyl top is in perfect condition with no rips or tears and also shines like new. The chrome shines like new in most places with only very minor pitting on some pieces. The rear chrome bumper has 2 flaws in the normal places where the chrome peels and oxidation has begun. It is minor and still a show car with these flaws. For you Imperial guys that wonder if there is rust between the rear fenders and back bumper, there is none.
The drivetrain is in perfect working order and the brakes work as they should. The tires are in OK condition and are beginning to show weather checking however they are all safe with plenty of tread and they all hold air without issue. The car runs and drives like it should and is a pleasure to just look at or cruise. I bought this car from a car collector who was liquidating some of his inventory. Imperial values are now on the rise as the production numbers were low to begin with and the remaining cars had either been destroyed in Demolition Derby or rotted away in a junk yard. You will be hard pressed to find a 1968 Chrysler Imperial Lebaron Hardtop in this condition with this low of mileage. Hagerty Classic Car values has this car listed as follows : Concours $27,600, Excellent $16,700.
