Leslie's 1967 Imperial Sedan "Titanic"

Imperial Home Page -> Imperials by Year -> 1967 -> Titanic

I've had my Sedan  since 1983 and it's been an ongoing project..    My lovely Haze Green Sedan "Titanic" was purchased new in Pomona CA by my great uncle.. He then sold it to my grandmother (his sister) in 1970, while my grandfather was out deer hunting!! ( You can imagine how thrilled my grandfather the GM Mechanic was to come home and find a Chrysler in his Driveway) I was always fond of the car, and when she decided to give up driving at age 83, she gave it to me... I have all the receipts and records for it since 1970. My Dad was almost as thrilled as my grandfather to find an Imperial in his driveway as my dad was always a FORD man.

Imperial in Peterson Tunnel

Robb and I Filling them up before we head for WPC nationals the Full Size version of this Picture really shows the difference in Roof Profile between the Sedan and Hdtp and why I'm having such a rough time finding a gasket.

Nothing Like hitting the road in a Luxo-Cruiser!! This was taken on the way to WPC Nationals 1998, Robb took it from his 67 Imperial 2 Lane Highway in the middle of rural Oregon farm land on a sunny day!! Does it get any better?? I don't think so!!!

One of the Few Times all my brake lights worked :-) This was taken inside of Peterson Tunnel on Hwy. 126 for those of you who might someday cruise the roads in Oregon! Notice the hood of Robbs Imperial and Ornament are in the picture!

My Dash prior to fixing Gas Sending Unit. So the warning light is on.



In 2001 I finally found my doors, I traded a derby guy my doors for his good ones and he threw in a bunch of other parts. The good part was I got to strip my doors before I took them to him, but I got complete doors from him, glass as well as interior panels and of course it was a green car too.
