Much Imperial bashing going on here.. Has anyone seen the movie “Point Blank”? 1967 Lee Marvin is a bad dude who takes an enemy for a ride in a ‘67 Imperial conv. and proceeds to crash it front and back into overpass columns. It was still ready for more when his passenger had enough bouncing around.
Imperials are not allowed in demolition derbies…. Hmmmmmmmmm
Found this comment online about how I always felt about driving my Luxury Imperial LeBaron…..Now that you have gotten used to the luxury length, you can focus on the luxury that the car offered. This 1973 Imperial LeBaron was a big ole’ rollin’ Barco lounger. Its long wheelbase of 127” smoothed out the worst roads, with the longer wheelbase and heavy weight distribution the ride mocked a sense of “floating”….the car was unflappable at high speeds…..took potholes in stride, was unaffected by hilly terrain, and simply loved the open road. I drove one on a nice long, leafy trek and let me tell you, I arrived at my destination four hours later just as fresh as when I began the journey.
That LeBaron held the road like a magnate, the steering was light and responsive and as I said before, it was like floating at high speeds, you really couldn’t tell that you were going that fast until you saw the red lights in your rear view mirror of the vehicle that could barely keep up with your 440’s pace with that ticket! I hated the trip ended to be honest with you; I enjoyed that great big car, it was like driving my living room around with me.
