A 1973 Chrysler Imperial Lebaron! 

I cannot over state how CLEAN this classic is! 

This car was special ordered in 1973 for Sen. Sam Ervin of North Carolina. If you are from the south especially that name is well known. A long story short- Watergate hearings had begun and Sen. Ervin was to preside over those hearings. He called the dealership where he had ordered the car and told them he was unable to pick the car up. Later on as he was unable to make it back to NC he sent a friend to pick the car up for him and the friend titled the car in his (being the friends name). The Imperial never made it to Sen. Ervin because he passed before he was able to take possession of it. The colors were his choice, black and white. He had good taste! 

I know you may be saying hummmm really? Yes, really! I do not have any proof for this but word of mouth and in my town everyone knows the story is true! 

Now to the car.

It is the last year of the BIG body style Imperial and also the last year for the 440 engine in it.
The car has NO rust or paint blemish anywhere on it. All of the leather is plush, soft and in tact. No rips, tars,or stitching loose. The car has 65,763 miles on it. This is the original miles.

The car has every option available in 1973 for this car. 
-Electric seats and windows (all work).  
-Factory A/C (works great)
-Hide away lights (work well)
-Factory radio (works)
-All gauges work
Tires are in great shape as is the whole car!  

Please call me at 828-467-3369 if you have any questions.

*The car is for sale locally as well and I reserve the right to end the auction if it sells.
*If you bid, PLEASE be prepared to buy.

Chrysler dealers terminated in bankruptcy still stuck in court

Mon, 14 Apr 2014 16:30:00 EST

Part of the deal for the federal bailouts of Chrysler and General Motors was that both organizations were required to trim their vast array of dealerships. This move did not sit well with the people that would be losing out on franchises, though, and in Chrysler's case, 148 of the shuttered dealers have fought for money they feel they are entitled to.
These dealers believe that they should be compensated by the federal government, as Chrysler wouldn't have trimmed its sales centers had it not been ordered to by Uncle Sam. Now, thanks to the ruling of three judges on the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, the dealers will get a chance to argue their point.
According to Automotive News, the dealers argue that the mandatory shuttering of dealers was unconstitutional, because the federal government was taking property without compensation. If the dealers are victorious, not only would the government be out millions of dollars, but a precedent could be set that would allow similarly closed GM dealerships to cash in.

Chrysler's Hurricane engine detailed ahead of 2016 launch

Fri, 20 Sep 2013 15:03:00 EST

We've been hearing distant rumblings about Chrysler's new Hurricane engine for some time now, but details have been hard to come by. Now, Automotive News is adding some specifics to the scuttlebutt, citing Chrysler documents. According to the industry publication, the Hurricane will blow onto the scene in 2016, but it's not an all-new engine. Rather, it will be rooted in the company's existing 2.0-liter four-cylinder Tigershark powerplant (shown above), albeit with "many new technologies to achieve excellent fuel economy."
It's not clear what sort of technologies Chrysler is referring to, but the Hurricane is expected to continue to use an aluminum block, and the finished product is expected to generate even better figures than the existing 2.0-liter's 160 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque (as found in the Dodge Dart). Automotive News notes that the updated 2.4-liter Tigershark debuting in the entry-level 2014 Jeep Cherokee has its basis in the 2.0-liter lump, but unlike the smaller engine, it's been fitted with MultiAir2 electrohydraulic variable valve timing to realize 184 hp and 171 lb-ft and greater efficiency.
Perhaps the Hurricane will incorporate the latter in its bag of tricks? Either way, we're hoping for a more generous torque curve than the what's in the current 2.0-liter Tigershark, which is something of a slug in the Dart - even for a base economy compact.

Some Jeep Cherokees and Chrysler 200s to get standard stop-start in 2015

Wed, 25 Jun 2014 09:28:00 EST

Automakers the world over are striving to find ways to make their models more efficient, and Chrysler has a solution for some versions of the 2015 Chrysler 200 and 2015 Jeep Cherokee (2014 model shown). The Tigershark 2.4-liter four-cylinder in the 200 and the 3.2-liter Pentastar V6 in the Cherokee are getting a slight boost later this year thanks to the addition of Chrysler's Engine Stop-Start system as standard equipment. The company predicts modest gains - a three-percent improvement in fuel economy and a three percent reduction in CO2 emissions with the new tech compared to without it. While it's not much, those who sit in traffic a lot may see a difference.
Chrysler's stop/start system uses a high-speed starter motor to restart the vehicle in a claimed a third of a second. It works by detecting when the vehicle comes to a stop and turning off the engine. A more powerful battery maintains all of the model's accessories while it sits. When the driver lets off the brake, the car starts up again to drive away. There is even a button in the cabin to turn the ESS off, if desired.
The Jeep will be the first to receive ESS in the third quarter of this year to coincide with the start of production of the 2015 model-year version. The 200 will follow in the fourth quarter as a rolling change in production.
