Imperial Home Page -> Imperials by Year -> 1981 -> Chuck Ariens
Chuck Ariens has had this car for almost three years and has enjoyed every minute of it. He's taken several extended trips as well as a number of tours with it and it has always been dependable and trouble free. Chuck's done only routine maintenance on it along with plugs, points, distributor cap. plug wires, water pump, tires, and converted the A/C to R134A. "Beauty" is his daily driver (as long as the weather is good and the streets are dry!) and she is a real "head turner" in Central Texas. She has been in several shows and received a "Best In Class" award in the San Antonio Show.
This car is an early '81 model (built in October of '80) and has led a sheltered life. Her mileage is in the low "60's" and everything works as new. She was given the Chrysler carb conversion by a Chrysler dealer (her original owner) and runs and drives beautifully. Don't ask Chuck to buy his Beauty. He says, "I love this car and hope I never have to part with it".
This is one Imperial that's found it's permanent home!
