    Recently purchased this beauty! She's definitely a project. There is rust through in the front quarters, and some obvious bondo work in the upper front fender.

    The interior is also a mess, and it's been sitting off the road since 1987, with all the extra work that probably entails with rotted lines everywhere.

    Does the 0014 indicate an early production car? I'm working on decoding the fender tag.

    THat's waaaaaaay cool! And a coupe! I almost bought a '63 ragtop a few years back, gave a deposit and then asked about the dash...didn;t light up. Having been through that system with a 300F and now my 300G, i asked the seller for some compassion by way of a few bucks off the price. Since he wouldn't budge I busted the sale. Bought the Shriner car and restored it....the ''63 was a nice car but those dashes can be pricey to service.

    Now, check this site: Online Imperial Club (OIC) for Imperial, Chrysler Imperial, and Chrysler New Yorker Brougham Enthusiasts It's an incredible source of information and help....You have a nice project there!

    Good luck!

    Lovely car in a beautiful color, all the best with it.

    I suggest you look at the online imperial club website and click on 1963. I'm sure there are folks with identical cars who can advise you.
