RE: IML: Lead Additive



HELLO ALL-

 

I AM A NEW MEMBER AND HAVE NEVER GOTTEN IN ON THE CONVERSATIONS BEFORE, SO FORGIVE IF THIS IS THE WRONG WAY AND PLEASE STRAIGHTEN ME OUT.

 

I HAVE BEEN A CHRYSLER LOVER SINCE I OWNED MY 1954 IMPERIAL IN 1970. UNFORTUNATELY I HAD TO LEAVE HER IN CALIFORNIA IN 1985.  I HAVE BEEN SORT OF LOOKING EVER SINCE AND WAS REWARDED LAST MONTH.

 

 I FOUND A 1952 CUSTOM IMPERIAL WITH 11,000 (OR MAYBE 111,000) MILES ON IT JUST LAST MONTH IN OREGON VIA  50+ YEARS IN PERTHUMP, NEVADA.  IT IS PRIME AND PICTURES ATTACHED.

 

MY QUESTION IS: SOUTH FLORIDA IS HOT. THERE WAS NO AC IN 1952. I HAVE CONTACTED VINTAGE AIR AND THE ISSUE IS MY IMPERIAL, AS WAS MY “54, IS SIX VOLT. ALL THEIR SYSTEMS ARE FOR 12 VOLT. ANY SUGGESTIONS OR EXPERIENCE WITH SAME?  12 VOLT DEEP CYCLE BATTERY IN TRUNK AND PLUG IT IN? ALTERNATIVE ALTERNATOR?

 

SOMEONE HAS TO HAVE CONFRONTED THIS CHALLENGE BEFORE.

 

THANKS, MICHAEL

 

BY THE WAY, DID ANYBODY SEE THAT 1953 CROWN IMPERIAL ON EBAY THAT WENT FOR $40,500?  IT WAS GORGEOUS.

The price difference in motor fuels in other countries, has little to do with the cost of crude, or refining. The major factor is the TAXES , gas in South America, is as little as 17 cents per gallon, Norway has vast oil and gas reserves, but are taxed $4-5 per gallon. Here we pay about 60-70 cents per gal.
