The pictures Robert Young first saw of this beauty on the New Yorker Brougham Club's website made him buy it, "Beautiful Black '74 Imperial". After purchasing his new Imperial, he flew to St. Louis and drove the car back to Texas straight through in 12 hours 5 minutes!
Things Robert has done to the car include: repaint, new top, new tires and wheels, new 1000 watt 11 speaker stereo, tint, timing chain, master cylinder, valve cover gaskets, R & R carb, coil, plugs and Magnecor wires, cap, rotor, H-pipe on dual exhaust with 40 series Flowmaster 2-chambers, headlamps (all now halogens), voltage regulator, ECU (orange box), R & R radiator, hoses & belts, and converted to R134. It now has 72,138 miles on it and runs very smooth and nice.
Robert has no intention of letting this one go, having learned so much about these fine automobiles. That knowledge is even more value to him than this great car!
