  3. Yes, the '61 Plymouth was available in a lavender color, though the '61 Fury two door hardtop owned by a lady in town here back then was lavender metallic.
  4. Linus: Thanks for the update, sorry the Studebaker didn't turn out to be in better mechanical condition. Although I suspect what you've discovered in the Studebaker what it true of too many original cars, that they run but their drivability is serious compromised by neglect. Hope you will be able to overcome those problems to eventual make the Big Six into a viable tour car. BTW, neat photos at period appropriate locations.
  5. Design inspiration arises from many sources, whether by design or pure serendipity, unity of styling features contributes to an appealing, pleasing appearance:

  8. Quite true, a couple further pale efforts, both which failed to reestablish Imperial as a viable contender. Of the last Imperial concept car in 2006, one Chrysler executive wryly commented "here we go losing our shirts again on an Imperial". When Chrysler could afford Imperial as a vanity project, that was fine, produced many interesting car. But by the last forty years, Chryslers has had enough financial ups and downs, it can ill afford any such vanity projects, better concentrate on its core produces to affectively compete or it will be sunk given the intense competition now.
