The imperial 58 2 door hardtop went for 27? 

https://www.mecum.com/lots/PA0818-330182/1958-chrysler-imperial/


Seemed like a great deal, not sure of condition.

Mecum doesnt seem to get real money so of course the 56 Desoto convert didnt sell

the 65 imperial convert went for 6000!, i was going to get on the horn quick... man it looks like it needed a restore but seemed in good shape?

dont think there was anything else.

I think that imperial has been through there a few times. I think I've seen that car and that seems right. If I recall, the pictures were old. Car showed wear in weird places, I think. I remember there was a reason I didn't buy it a year ago lol

yeah I think aside from the new bumpers, it needs a total work over and restore.

I would also doubt its rust/bondo free or they would state it and it was being sold by a flipper dealer... "Jimmy" probably gave it the "once" over out in the body shop...

That Imperial looks nice at a quick glance but there's something weird going on too
Without trying to be overly critical, the rear view mirror is in the wrong location and it has an AC radiator support on a non-AC car

The color combination is odd, but the dataplate is impossible to read.
