This has absolutely nothing to do with pro-cars.

My absolute favorite year as far as Imperials go! Wow!

My understanding is, these are c -body from the cowl back but the sub frame and front group is unique to the Imperials?

You are correct the front sheet metal and sub frame are Imperial only. Long ago 1970 to be exact I bought a total 70 Imperial. I had done a Dukes of Hazzerd off an expressway landed so hard it was bent in a U. The sub frame had torn out of the floor where bolted on both front fenders were bent upwards. Nothing else was damaged. The body man I had at the times only comment was WOW!!. We broke the car in half repaired and reinforced the floor where the sub frame bolted on. Put the frame back two new fenders (you could not find yard fenders as so few Imperials sold) and BOY did Chrysler charge for the fenders. When done it was a gold and black beauty. But compared to the FURY cop cars we had so many of it wallowed down the road like a fat lady in a bath tub. We sold it to an older gentleman who was forever scraping it on his garage door.

I just love everything about the '69 Imps. Sequential turn signals(only year for them), "fish gill" cornering lamps, etc. Love the small back glass, but they did not like sitting outside and they would rust out around that back glass fairly quickly, from moisture getting under the vinyl. I purchased the '69 LeBaron that I still own from the estate of the original owner. I took it out of the garage where it was delivered to when new. 69,000 miles on it now.

I really like those big land yachts. The coupe is a really good looking car, but I am really attracted to your car Kurt, somehow the four door seems more Imperial to me. When I first became a car dealer in 1976, we used to buy these cars and they really bring back good memories for me!

I had a beautiful, triple black '72 LeBaron 4-door hdtp in the early '80s. Believe it or not, it was an Arizona car. It had factory front & rear A.C.

Apparently I am not the only '69 Imp LeBaron fan! It's now at $7500 with 4 days left!

I have no true knowledge of Imperial values, but I believe $7500 would be a very decent price for a coupe.
