Another Florida dealer flipping cars, this time a pre-production 1962 Imperial LeBaron, sold for $42,900 recently: 1962 IMPERIAL LEBARON PRE-PRODUCTION PROTOTYPE - Barrett-Jackson Auction Company - World's Greatest Collector Car Auctions
now back on the market (on ebay also): 1962 Chrysler Imperial
1962 Chrysler Imperial Lebaron PRE-PRODUCTION PROTOTYPE

This specific Imperial is a 1962 Pre-Production vehicle that spent its whole life being pampered by a long time Chrysler employee. This specific Imperial was used for Auto Show reveals and even Chrysler commercials in the early 1960s. In 1955 Chrysler made an attempt to completely separate the Imperial nameplate in hopes of competing with large American luxury companies such as Cadillac and Lincoln. Although this attempt failed it does not take away from the amazing design and craftsmanship on this Imperial.

With under 17000 miles (Title show miles exempt) this Imperial is easily capable of walking away with multiple awards at any car show. Equipped with a 413CID V8 This Imperial has more than enough power to move around. The monstrous motor is matted to a 3-Speed Automatic Push Button Transmission. This 1962 Imperial is definitely a collector's item especially considering it is a pre-production one of one example that you will never come across again. This Imperial is still dressed in its original Tuxedo Black paint which shows very minimal signs of age and wear. The interior is dressed in Dark Grey and the plush vinyl upholstery is in excellent condition. One of the most striking features is the squared steering wheel which is unique to this specific generation of Imperials.

This flagship sedan is equipped with many features you would not expect from a early 1960s sedan. It is loaded with a full power interior including Power Windows Power Seats and even Cruise Control which is referred to as Auto Pilot. This pre-production Imperial is also equipped with a rear air-ride suspension and a rear A/C which is a completely separate unit that powers the A/C up front. You will be hard pressed to find any flaws with this timeless classic. It rests comfortably on wide white-wall radials with Imperial engraved chrome hub-caps. The car rides on Coker American Classic radial wide whitewall tires with the factory Imperial wheel covers.

Beautiful, no doubt, but doesn't appear any different from other '62 Imp LeBarons. Charging a premium for a "pre-production" car is a bit of a stretch...... sure seems to have appreciated ($20K) in a very short time......
