Hemmings Find of the Day – 1973 Imperial LeBaron

Published in

One fine candidate for driveable dream status is this 1973 Imperial LeBaron four-door hardtop for sale on It’s got a few cosmetic issues, a little rust, and a handful of power accessories to fix, but it’s also pretty solid throughout, complete, and was recently treated to a warmed-over 440. Looks to be roadworthy as-is, though it could easily benefit from a rolling restoration. From the seller’s description:

I have this car since 2010. A friend of mine bought it from an old lady (first owner) in Utah. He kept it for a couple of months and sold it to me. I’ve brought this car to life, but as I am moving from Utah I’ll have to sell it. The car runs strong a drives like a dream. This is a rare model called fuselage body. It’s hard to find this body in good condition. The car was never restored.

I’ve had the engine rebuilt following the 1969 440 specs, 375 HP. It has 9.8 CR, aluminum heads, Howard Cam (copy of 1969 OEM specs), new Holley 770 CFM vac sec carb, aluminum intake manifold and Roller rocker arms. Everything is new in the engine.

The A/C is working although the control in the dash is not. There’s a bypass switch to turn it on and off. New exhaust. New engine and transmission mounts, balanced driveshaft. New front suspension, new alternator, new battery, hideaway headlights fixed and working fine.

The clock is not working. The right mirror is not working. The left rear power window is not working. There’s some minor rust on back fenders and some very minor in the right front fender. There is some small tears on driver’s seat. I have tons of HD Pics that I can send through email. I’ll enclose 1 spare Hubcap, the original intake manifold and carburetor and the original valve covers.
