    This might be a car worth buying for somebody. Location Boston area ish

    Got this description from seller

    I purchased the car in 2012 from the 2nd owner. He had owned it since 1976 and mileage was at 75,000 mi. then.
    It currently has 104,000 mi. So 29,000 mi. in 44 yrs. He kept a detailed log of everything he did to the car.
    Growing up my father had the same car in this color combo. It took me 9 yrs.to find an 1970 Imperial Lebaron in Mystic Gold w gold Leather.
    The car has always been stored covered in a garage, in my case a heated garage. It is a true survivor. It has been in storage for many years. So it will need the usual things to get it road worthy. Belts, hoses, brake hydraulics, fuel sys. service etc.
    The car is pretty loaded with options: Tilt & telescopic wheel, P. windows and P. vent windows, AC, Rear seat heater, Leather,
    Stereo 8-track, Power trunk release, cruise control, Auto climate control...etc.
    Take a look at the pics, If your interested, give me a call at 978-729-8909 Too much info to type.
    Price: i'm thinking $ 7,500 but am totally open to offers.

    That's a SUPER-CLEAN car. I have a bunch of pics of it from back when it was for sale a decade ago.

    I'll try to put them up later tonight.

    nice one.

    I am not a buyer, but its the kinda car I discuss with seller for 30 mins, get a couple more pics hopefully, meet the asking price, send money fastest available method, and enjoy the heck outta it for as long as I can.

    Hope it finds a good home somewhere on the planet.

    Great car. If I had a big enough garage I would consider it. I hope it finds a worthy home.
    When I got my Fury I called the owner and asked if I was in line to see it. Yes he said ,there is a family that wants it for his son to drive to high school all year round. They lived near Buffalo NY. They thought a really big car would be safe for their precious son.
    Someone get this thing!!

    Fender tag or engine pics, anyone? My only worry regarding this beauty would be if it has H53 ATC.

    I'm sure it does. Just about every post-'69 Imperial has ATC, except for maybe the cheapy Crown models.

    My '69 LeBaron has very few options, not even a power driver seat, but it does have ATC, so I'd bet the farm that this well-optioned '70 has ATC.

    I wouldn't consider that a deal breaker. There are ways around the ATC problem. Once I get my shop up and running, one of my projects is to start investigating ATC problems on my cars and see if I can get them working again.

    I had the ATC in Lee, my former 73 rebuilt, there is a testing device that I purchased and had shipped to my mechanic and everything is fully operational as far as I know. Yes, its time consuming to check all the components, but it's worthwhile to have a functional system.

    All the best with yours.

    Gentlemen: this is a 1970 model. As @saforwardlook has documented in other threads, the ATC in 1971-1973 fusies is fixable. The 1969-1970 is a nightmare and a different ball game altogether.

    FWIW, Ming (my ‘73 NYB) came with H53. I intend to fix it this winter with the help of @71Polara383 under Steve’s guidance.

    This said: for someone who can live without A/C, this car is VERY tempting. It is gorgeous.

    Lovely car. Pity about the superfluous hood ornament.

    In my experience with fuselage Imperials, the product planners in the timeframe of releasing the greatly changed 1969 models went too far in terms of equipping these cars with a lot of advanced ideas and options in an effort to make them stand out in a crowded segment of Cadillacs and Lincolns primarily. The 1969 Imperials had a number of new features such as sequential turn signal lights at the rear, electronic ignition on at least early models and a part throttle kickdown feature in their torqueflites and more plus an all new instrument panels and the new fuselage bodies. But a lot of these new systems were not well sorted out before production started and many were troublesome. And first generation Autotemp 1 systems introduced more than a year earlier than the 69 models were also a poor design that relied on vacuum components that just didn't have the durability to work for very long.

    I have known some folks with some of these 1969 models and also the very similar 1970 models (but with a number of the "tryout" new features of the 69's deleted on the 1970 models). In my view, they made a big mistake in making their top luxury models equipped with the latest new features when they were not well sorted out.

    The guys I know that have owned these cars all had the same complaint. It seemed that these cars never performed reliably with all these new designs and features for very long. They would fix one thing and then the next time they drove them, something else would break, and it never ended. The early instrument panels were a bear to work on and even the 1971 - up models are no picnic but they were certainly a lot better.

    For me, although I do have one low mileage 1969 model coupe Imperial, I believe it is a much smarter choice to buy one of these fuselage models starting with the 1971 and up versions that were actually well made and well sorted out by comparison.

    Steve, What did the electronic ignition box look like? I had a 1969 Imp years ago with Electronic Ignition, and the plugs and wiring looked like Chrysler. Did Chrysler develop it, or was it outsourced? I can't find the photo of my ignition box, which was on the engine side of the core support, passenger side. Perhaps Carsten has a picture of it??

    Easier to take aim on future road kill items!
