    Let´s decipher the fender tag:

    E85= 4bbl 440cid w/ single exhaust
    D32= 3-speed Torque Flight automatic transmission
    YM43= Imperial, medium price range, 4-door hardtop: gives away that this is a LeBaron
    K= engine, see E85
    9= model year, 1969
    C= assembly plant: Jefferson, Michigan
    294704= sequence number
    T7= body paint color, Tuscan Bronze
    MDK= standard interior, 50/50-divided front bench seat, leather and cloth trimmed in vinyl, chestnut/beige
    T3= Bronze Mist, but where? Door jambs?
    612= Build date, June 12
    112076= sequence number
    H54= Dual Auto Temp A/C
    R37= AM/FM radio w/ 8-track tape player
    R31= rear seat speakers
    V1L= vinyl top, champagne
    P33= power vent windows
    P41= power door locks
    P45= power rear deck release
    P28= 6-way power seat, left and right

    Edit: I rechecked the date code.

    Of course it's a scumbag dealer. They always try sticking it up your ass.

    Geeze Mr.Crowley, your excitement appears to have fizzled out rather quickly...didn't even get a full summers worth of cruising in it.

    No I'm not a dealer. Just a person who has enough money to get what they want. I've purchased 6 imperials since joining this forum and have made some good friends. I sold 3 of them to members of this forum. I have decided I'm just not a C body guy. I like my b bodies better. I drove the car on several occasions. It's fun. But not for me. I have tioo many cars as it is. Putting some on consignment gives them a place for storage with out having to pay an outrageous storage bill. The car is still mine. If it sells so be it. If not in 6 months when it cools down I get it back Thanks for your opinion.
