1961 Chrysler Imperial - $2000 obo
Permalink  
 


Complete for restoration, hot rod or rat rod build or parts if you are looking for all those hard to find pieces for your own. Many good parts and trim. Complete dash, drive-train, chassis, etc. Has rust across lower three inches of car through-out yet spotless in others (see pics), I haven't heard it run or drive but consider it to be requiring a total overhaul. I took it in as part trade and don't need this one hanging around for long. 

413 cu.in (6.8L) with matching torque flight push button transmission. 

Some of the Imperial best known and distinctive features were the steering wheel was squared-off at top and bottom, designed for better leg room and view through the windshield, dashboard lighting was "electroluminescent" which glowed more than lit-up, it has the largest tail fins ever, the Imperial would once again be the longest non-limousine car made in America though 1966...Google it cause I did. 

Will make a great rat rod too! For sale or may trade for anything interesting but cash is preferred for this one. 

May part out later in the week so if interested in anything in particular just ask. Offer, etc.

 

On Kijiji for $2500 but reduced for Ontario Rodders

That would be a cool car restored, but would cost a fortune to bring it back! I always walk over to the big boats when I'm at a show.

61' is a real oddball year - one year only everything. Cool cars - someone should rod it.

Everytime I look at it I find cool new details and features. Be a shame for it to go to waste which is why I agreed to take it and see if we can get it into someones loving hands!

Such an expensive car to bring back, I am afraid it will end up parted out... unless someone has the nerve to build a custom, this would be an awesome start... For someone other than me,lol. I already have an orphan Dodge because of the same fate. Good luck ,cool car folks!

It would make a bitchen' low buck rod.  If it was a 61 or 62 Chrysler I would be all over it.  The Imperial was a seperate line at the time and nearly everything is specific to a 1961 Imperial.  Hard cars to restore.  Fun cars to rod.
