Someone went to great lengths to make an Imperial clone. They actually put in the Imperial specific rear marker lights.

That windshield being smashed is the biggest obstacle...cannot get Formal glass anymore.

It had 97,000 miles in 2013 and needs an engine rebuild. Still had LB running. Speaking of the windshield being broken....I wonder how much rain and other stuff came in through it.

Speaking of glass.. any ideas on where I can find glass gaskets? Rear mainly..
Formals do not use gaskets. The windshield and backlight are installed with butyl tape. The last year for rubber windshield gaskets was 68.

Or were you referring to weather stripping?

Thanks Mr C.. I’ll need to pull the back window to repair rust at the corners and thought / didn’t know if it was a gasket or glue..

Same car in 2013:

Even the sunroof worked quite well.

Wonder what happened? :(

The add is long gone but 2013 was a while ago. It was outside when they got it and has probably been outside since then. Buried in snow every winter. The windshield broken in 2013.

It may have went for 1200 with the road wheels if he had them still... looks like they have other cars though. Who knows but that's derby money. I think it could have cleaned up for a last hurrah. High mile car but tge interior would clean up. No close ups of the rust problem
