1989 - This is what I started with.

I had quotes of $400-$500 to restore steering wheel. I chipped old plastic off, slit air-hose legth-wise, glued it to steering-wheel, filled gaps with silicone rubber and installed custom-made leather steering-wheel cover. Looks presentable and feels normal. Five hours and $35.00 for the job.

Rear compartment. Notice "Chrysler Imperial" script on door sill plate.
14-inch brake drums. 7.50x16 tires.
