    It's $380k because it's one of about 4-5 built, and has a history. (parade car)

    SHOCKING! Had to be the producer was out on a peek break. Mecum rarely, if ever, shows a car like that. Usually, see stuff like this getting pushed off after commercial break, just to see an unending flow of mustangs or chevelles.

    Well that can't be all true. I did see the Imperial limo, was a high quality restoration. To confirm that c bodys do get the love. #mystarcar featured my 1969 Chrysler 300 vert. Who knew. Proud to represent.

    Yeah well, that's what I see when I finally get a chance to watch later in the evenings. My point is, stuff of this caliber should be on in the evenings to break up the "same old, same old"

    Sorry my mistake. I looked at it quickly on my phone and thought it was one of these:

    Chrysler Imperial Parade Phaeton -
    Wikipedia

    But upon closer inspection it's obviously not. Can't explain the price, but it's an incredible car and more worth the money (to me) than some flimsy euro sports car that would get spanked by a modern minivan.

    That is the1 of 1 Imperial made for KT Keller, that's why it's so pricey.

    I don't see the need for a lot of the modern stuff in a car you're not going to beat back/forth everyday... BUT; if you're going that route, I give this build credit for very good workmanship! Most of those "touring" builds I'd feed into a smelter, but this is actually something I respect.
