    ***SOLD***

    1964 IMPERIAL LeBARON 4-DOOR HARDTOP $5,900 - OBO/TRADE (More pictures added...scroll down)

    My dad & I bought this car (for the first time) in 2000 +/- on Ebay, from the estate of the original owner. I personally drove it home, approximately 75 miles, with ice cold A/C and no issues. The engine & transmission were supposedly rebuilt prior to our purchase, but I have no documentation of this. The engine has a rebuild tag on it (somehwere) and was painted black prior to our ownership. Other than the engine color, it remains unmolested under the hood. My dad used is as an occasional daily driver until cancer took him in 2011. A dear friend of his purchased it from us at that time, but now his health has failed & I agreed to buy the car back to relieve storage and financial pressure. The car has been stored inside, and has seen virtually no use during the past 10 years. I replaced the battery, fuel pump, lots of fluids, and it is a running & driving survivor once again.

    I have it currently in running, driving condition and have driven it around the neighborhood where it was stored. I haven't had it past 25-30 mph because the tires are flat-spotted. Transmission shifts consistently, "park" lever engagement works as it should, and the brakes are strong and stop straight. Engine is incredibly strong, and runs cool.

    Body is entirely rust-free, save for a few bubbles on the drivers rear quarter. These were present when we bought it, and are unchanged. this car is dry as a bone, and has been in Northern CA it's entire life. The paint will shine, but has numerous chips, dings, etc. The vinyl top is garbage, and was covered by the previous owner with some silicone crap that is also garbage. A reproduction vinyl top was purchased (in the correct grain), but I am not sure I want to install. My preference would be a color change, with a painted roof to match. Chrome and trim is all present, and is consistent with the car's condition. I also have lots of extras available.

    Interior is totally original. Front seat will need upholstery, but I'd drive it with a red towel on the driver's side. Dash is cracked, as they all do, but the door panels, carpet, headliner, rear seat, trim panels are exceptional. Power seat works, power windows work (in general) but are slow. I have noticed that the blinkers don't work, but I have found a correct switch for the tilt column. Glass is all very nice, trunk is very clean and ready to stack bodies in.

    This is a cheap entry into the classic car market, with lots of little extras included for the next buyer. While not ready to drive across country, I'd town drive it tomorrow while I finish sorting it out (after new tires, of course). I really don't have the time time to give this car the attention it deserves, so I'd like to send it on to a good home. If it doesn't sell, it will stay tucked in my storage space. I welcome international buyers, and am more than willing to write a low-priced bill of sale to help with customs fees, as well as deliver to the shipping port.

    $5,900 OBO /possible trades if you deliver & pick up.

    Please DM with any questions.

    I had some requests to provide pictures around the vinyl top, as well as pictures of the trunk floor (which is completely rust free). This is a CA car folks, and a central valley car. We are spoiled with dry, rust free classics.
    I have bought some real R-12 freon (3.5 lbs. per original spec) to recharge the A/C, and have sourced a new set of whitewall radials that I can have installed for the next owner.

    Here's a link to a running video, the first time I pulled it out of the garage where it was stored for 10+ years:
