I purchased this 1970 Imperial LeBaron on August 8, 2002, through an ad on the Online Imperial Club Classifieds.  This Imperial was sold new to a gentleman in Chicago in 1969.  In October 1988, the second owner purchased the car from the original owner (coincidentally, I purchased my first Imperial, a 1971 LeBaron, this same month).  He used it for a couple of years to "tow" a 1968 Chrysler 300 to shows, and then parked it in his garage.  It remained parked in his garage until I "rescued" it in 2002.

The car currently has about 62,000 miles on it and is in excellent condition throughout.  I believe that the car has been repainted at some point in its life, but the color is correct and the paint job is quite good.  The interior is completely original and is virtually flawless.
