A real barn find!!!! 1957 Chrysler Imperial 4 door with a first generation Hemi engine. Picked up in Lancaster County Pa. Car has been off the road for years. I updated the ad due to an error the car has only 68,000 miles on it. I did not try to start but motor is free. It would not take much to get it running again. Not a lot of rot in the car. Must sell car soon I have no place for the car. No reasonable offer refused!!!

Maybe it's just me BUT if I were looking to buy this one I would do a thorough inspection underneath seeing how, as the seller states, the

"car has been off the road for years" and, as seen in the pictures, stored in an open carport - ON DIRT!!!!

Plus, I see some substantial rust in the quarter panel

The '57 Imperial's dashboard is one of my favorites - I love those huge gauge pods.  Obviously, this one will never be a moneymaker, but they never are, in my experience (I also never sell anything).  Realistic expectations are the order of the day on this one...get it running if you can, clean it up, and have a fun "beater."  

Sadly, someone will probably buy it for the 392 and sell it as a parts car.

"A real barn find!!!!"


Ah yes - it's another barn find.  Sellers love to use the "barn find" phraseology whenever possible to start the automotive juices percolating within the minds of any interested collectors.  


This phrase is so faded, over-used, and so passé.  The seller's photos don't show the Imp sitting in a barn, but rather, an open-sided pole shed, along with a host of other hulks.  I guess it's subjective, but, in my opinion, the term "barn find" is not applicable to this car.
