Always liked the late '30s Deco styled Mopars, that sedan would be very tempting if space and money permitted, even the sedans have a sort of "black lab" doggy kind of friendliness and ruggedness about them!
Great idea to post these!!

I like the more slippery 30's - 40's designs as art, but never liked driving them. A lot of work (drive like
an old truck) and they have terrible visibility with those tiny windows. Another one of those cases where I
like them, but I would not want to own one. Another turn-off for me is the legions of same era cars turned
into hotrods, with their bright paint, flames, louvres, and (gag) big tires and wheels. Never could get with
that scene. If I am going to go to the trouble of a really old car, I'll go all the way back to the 20's to get
the big windows and more "contraption-like" feel and appearance. Still, what is cooler than seeing a car like
these going down the road in original appearance ?

500020001000500100100

Classy!

http://denver.craigslist.org/cto/4852955809.html

Chrysler Imperial Custom Coupe. "The finest car in America today!" That was the sales byline for the new 1954 Imperial by Chrysler. You may not find a better example than the car that I'm offering. This is an extremely rare "Matching Numbers" car.

It was painstakingly restored to factory original condition. The car was repainted in it's original colors of Tahitian Tan over Cordovan Brown Metallic. The color-matched interior is new and flawless. All the chrome has been freshly replated--$$$.

It took five months to completely rebuild the 331 cubic inch Hemi engine. The transmission was removed, overhauled and resealed. All component parts-- starter, generator, power steering box, air conditioning compressor, battery, voltage regulator, etc are either new or freshly overhauled.

The "Break-In" oil was literally just changed. It's still six volts! Old parts were saved.

At a cost of $4,560.00, before the Dealer added A/C, this was one of the most luxurious and expensive cars in America in 1954.

This fine vehicle possesses original, factory:
Power Windows
Power Seats
Power Steering
Power Brakes
Chrysler "Power Flyte" Automatic Transmission; and,
Dealer Installed Air Conditioning.

All systems are in perfect working condition. Save the clock, all electrical and mechanical instruments work flawlessly.

You simply will not be disappointed in the looks, feel, ride and quality of this low miles, Hemi-Headed Luxury Cruiser.

I have a book full of receipts evidencing the thoroughness of the restoration.

This afternoon, I tried to get an image of the Colorado State Capitol and Immaculate Conception from Colfax and about Williams. 

The old Mountain States Bank was at Colfax and Gilpin.  I was at ground level.  For the life of me, I can't figure out how they took the image Joe sent to me!

At least a block east!  I think the photographer must have been many, many blocks east with a zoom lens.  There were only a few buildings I recognized, but the house with the gable-end brown roof is one.  Also the building with the high hipped roof corners.  I can't figure out how the photographer got the house with the brown roof to line up with the state capitol and was able to get those proportions!  When I went out there thinking I could get a similar shot, I just don't see how the angle exists!  If you could get the house with the brown roof and the state capitol closer, it seems like the state capitol would be tiny!  Maybe it was some different type of lens like a zoom or fish-eye or ???

I did actually take the image a block east of Mountain States, like you might think from Joe's photograph.  Here is the un-cropped image with the reference points in yellow.  Somehow that image above was far enough away that all of the reference points on the south side of the street lined up a bit better.  Now the pot billboard would probably obscure the state capitol building!

Just noticed this Non-Forward Look thread and thought I'd post a few photos of my 53 Dodge Coronet convertible. Originally a Denver car, I bought it about nine years ago from the family of the original owners. One of 4,100 produced and an early build, it is one of the oldest, and possibly the oldest, Dodge hemi convertible still existing. It's never been restored and still has its original interior, top & 90% of paint, plus of course, original driveline & most options then available. And if you look real close, you can see a vestige of fin on each rear fender.

Nice Dodge. We (at least I) could handle some more photos, e.g. interior, engine bay, etc.

Regarding the vestigial fins, not sure about 53 but I know by 1954, the Dodge Royals played up the vestigial fins by adding a chrome fin on top. I know about that fin because my Dad added them to his 1955 Canadian Dodge (Plodge) when he got the car in 1956 and the big fins were out. (My uncle worked at the Chryco parts warehouse depot in Regina, Saskatchewan so getting those fins back in 1956 was relatively easy)(My uncle had them on his 55 Dodge Mayfair V8 too)

1954 Royal with the extra chrome fins:

Any idea where that DODGE V EIGHT air scoop goes?

The brochures said it fed cool air directly to the carburetor. Maybe.

There is a chute built into the underside of the hood that directs air to the air cleaner. Sorry I don't have a picture & the car is not at home to take one.

Interesting that the ad you posted talks about the 6 cylinder engine, but not the Red Ram V8 which is pictured in the chassis.

I would love to (eventually) see a photo of that chute. I was thinking of doing that to my 56 Dodge but didn't know how the factory did it in 1953/54. So I did something else.

Dave,
I'll try to take some photos of the chute before too long. As I recall, it stops short of the air cleaner by at least several inches. I'd be surprised if it provided much of a boost other than bringing in cooler outside air, but is just another of the things that make 50's Mopars neat. What you did on your 56 was probably more effective. If you wanted to make it more factory appearing, you might look around for a 53 - 54 hood, as it might be possible to adapt some of it to your car. Rich
