Thank you for referring to the 74 and later cars as "real C-bodies"...

Do you have an update on this rotor swap?

Be good to disseminate the info on the "Sjak-Hungarian Solution" to the
Imp rotor problem for all to know... sounds like it involves machine
work to existing available parts?

Indeed, some machining on 73 Chrysler rotors. Riyad will probably post some pics soon. During my last visit in Hungary, the rotors were completely ready, but since the car is undergoing a full resto, they are not tested yet...

I continue to amazed at the differences between Imps of this era 69-73
and similar year NY'ers... when I had my 69 Imp LeBaron 4 dr hdtp I
just assumed it was a gussied up NYer, it didn't seem all that
different from my 72 T & C, but apparently the differences ran deep
when it came to radiators, brakes, suspension, insulation, body mounts,
even frame and sheet metal supports?  The Imp was FAR quieter and
rode nicer than the 72, in any event, but I aways figgered it was just
more sound padding and better shocks.

 I have shied away from old Imperials because of the unavailability of parts-which is too bad, because they are impressive automobiles. I'm wondering if anyone has ever tried using rotors from a C body on them and just buying new wheels that use a 4.5" bolt circle? Is it that the spindles are too different to allow the use of these rotors, because that may be able to be fixed by turning them down in a lathe. It will be interesting to see what Sjak Brak has come up with.

I was thinking the same thing could you use new yorker rotors and also change the rear axles and drums to the 4.5 setup?

Not really.  It started with a question asked on Moparts and I was pizzed that some E-body guy knew a fact about C-bodies that I didn't.   OK. Imps got 5x5.  OK.
Stan, I'm begining to think you are obsessed about Road Wheels. LOL! Here's a quick fix for you.

well really there's no need to NOT buy an Imperial if its in decent condition. Except for the rotors, I found everything I needed, and the rotors could be made.
