I have tried to determine how many of my car are still on the road. The BCA has sent out a register of the number of cars and location recently that belong to club members, but I am certain that there are cars out there that are not registered with the BCA. Therefore I have given up in this pursuit. This car is far more rare than mine, but maybe he has come to this figure using data from the Walter P Chrysler Club. If I used this figure then I would provide a footnote on this very nice sign to validate this figure. Very nice looking car no matter how many are still on the road.

The WP Chrysler club registered cars would not be a measure of number left nor is the BCA.  In most cases the AACA has more Buicks registered than the BCA.   This sellers claim is pure sellers speculation intended to justify his price and conscience.

Does anyone from the Scranton Region AACA know about this car? I reached out to them and the only reply I got was from a former member who didn't remember the car. The consigner's website says, "WAS THE FEATURED SHOW CAR IN THE 29TH ANNUAL SCRANTON REGION AACA" so I would think someone in that region would remember the car. I know when a car like this is at my region's show it gets noticed and remembered. What does anyone think a realistic price is on a car like this? Haggerty values in high but is that a valid price structure? Thanks for anyone's input.

Again, nothing that this seller claims can be taken for truth.  He / She is trying to sell a car.  If still available I would reach out directly to the seller.  As an experienced buyer and seller (270 cars in 40 years) I would not start the conversation or even broach the comments or hyperbole he has stated. But, if he starts bragging about his comments, ask for clarification, I guess.   

 

Either way, buy the car, not his comments.  As with other comments, the Imperials as a group were probably more complex than the GM luxury cars of the same era.  Mopar/Imperial engineering in my opinion was excellent at this time but also over complicated.
