    Here is one more datapoint in support of your theory. This 1973 4dr LeBaron, which recently sold on FB (the asking price was $3.5k), looks like HL4 Sahara Beige with V1T Tan vinyl top and (guessing from the "off-white" description) an L3 Parchment interior.

    From the FB ad in Tipton, IN:

    "Driven 60,000 miles (...) Interior color: Off_white (...) all parts here 440..needs a few things adjusted..$3500...or Mopar trades...especially 4 or 5 speeds..."

    I´m waiting for an Imperial to join your herd... I know you sold one recently but I could imagine you won´t resist if a nice one pops up:D

    Indeed I did -- Elsie is now in Wisconsin.

    An Imperial, if I ever get one again, would have to be a 1971. I had an opportunity to buy four LeBaron 4drs, in different conditions (ranging from a solid project to truly exceptional), earlier this year. That forced me to think seriously about what I really wanted, as two of the cars were very appealing. I got to the conclusion that, short possibly of the "right" 1972 Chrysler New Yorker or 1971-1972 Sport Fury, I am altogether out of the four-door fusie market (I own a JA5 1973 NYB 4dr as you know, so I have that corner covered).

    As a result of this epiphany, the pool of candidate Imps that I would consider is pretty small to start with (only 1,442 2drs were produced in 1971). From those, I would only go for a car in a color and condition that appeal to me. Bottom line, the chance is pretty slim that I find the right car.

    FWIW, 2dr ‘71 Imps do pop up from time to time.

    —> One example was sold earlier this year to France by @olds is YM23T1C211836 -- a triple-black coupe that was previously owned by @TX9 (who sold it in 2018).

    —> Off the top of my head, other current/past owners of '71 2drs on FCBO include @saforwardlook (GY9 and GY4 in CA), @fc7_plumcrazy (FQ5 with Sure Brakes in Germany), @Imperial Pete (YM23T1C203021 is a GB2 with sunroof in OZ, previously owned by @saforwardlook), @hemiviper588 in MI (YM23T1C144878 is a GT8 2dr with sunroof that he bought in PA and later sold in 2018 to OK; it later moved overseas, to Brazil), and @jeffsunzeri (who rescued another GT8 2dr in CA).

    —> Non-FCBO sales include a 2017 ad by a well-known Chrysler collector/dealer in South Dakota (YM23T1C189583, a blue 2dr that was bought in WI in 2016) and a 2018 CL ad in MD (dark green).

    PS: does anyone know where YM23T1C189583 is nowadays -- she was for resale in 2017 by Gesswein Motors in SD? If so, please post here or in this dedicated other thread.

    ´Needs work. No title, bill of sale only.´

    No interior shot but the view suggests it’s shot. Unfortunately I think this JF1 4dr is off to the derby...

    JF1 is such a cool color. It says brown interior though... Weird color combo if that should be true

    Great looking car and great color. Too bad it doesn't have a tiltle...A good buffing and paint on the roof could make it an attractive DD for someone. Unfortunately, its fate is sealed.
