Wow.  So what's its history.  How did it end up following you home?

One of the most beautiful Mopars ever made... I see it has the classic
"Fuselage Mopar Trunk Channel Drain Bumper Chrome Thin Spot" ...
virtually every fuselage C body had it.

I have been having full size car fever again and I always wanted an Imperial, so I have been trolling craigslist and found this 71 locally.
It is in pretty good shape and I would like to have it painted first then I will tackle the rest of the car.

Yes indeed a very rare option.It powers up but the rubber belt is so hard and doesn't play and he was unable to find a suitable replacement.

Very nice Imp!!

I had one of those AM/FM with cassette recorder in my 73 roadrunner years ago.  It even worked too!!  But occasionally the belt would slip a bit and would slow down.
