In an attempt to thin the herd and gain some control over my AAD (Automotive Attention Distraction), I offer this:

EDIT: Sorry about the heading, I forgot to mention the price ($1500) and location (Westminster, MD)

So very, very glad you're so far away. I have a thing for biiiiig 2-door big-block Mopars....stems from the '65 300 that was supposed to be my first car.

Well, already had one scammer text me.

I really loved this car, but it deserves better than I can give it right now. What a highway cruiser it was.

You should sell it as a package deal with the trailer as most trailers can't handle that beast

I am glad I don't have a trailer.

All four tires hold air, and it has a dual exhaust. How can you refuse?

Anyone else see a bigass cop car here?

A friend of mine in Texas (who found this one for me about 10 years ago, when I flew out to Austin and drove it home) has two 1968 Imperials. Both have the same engine as this- the high compression 440. He regularly runs them on the highways out there in early weekend mornings at triple digit speeds. With the A/C blowing.

Oh! I know, I can use the "I just bought a Mercedes!" excuse.

And besides, I've never towed before! I hardly think a behemoth is the best thing to tow my first time out.

(Those are all of my excuses)

My Father-in-law has a '67 convertible. It is a really impressive car. You'd think it'd be a floaty mess, but it's not.

I am really struggling to find reasons not to come down to MD with a trailer. Big block Mopar coupe... What's not to love. Do you have all the pieces to fix front corner or would buyer have to locate that corner piece? Seriously, no rust?

In reply to crxmike:

The fender is actually not damaged. I have a spare because it came with the car when I bought it, for some reason. I have spare cornering lenses, and I believe the metal piece that goes around it. I think I even have a spare set of fender turn signals. Any minor stuff I'm missing can be easily sourced. The cornering lenses are the expensive part, and I have those.

I also have a whole spare grille, and a bunch of other stuff.

No real rust- Texas car, so the usual little spots of "desert patina". But it's "rust free" certainly by east coast standards.

They are surprisingly good road cars, especially on the highway. Imperials consistently tested higher than Caddies or Lincs back in road tests of the day. The 440 was a little coarser than the ultra-smooth 460s or 472s, though, which (coupled with Chrysler's sometimes schizophrenic marketing - is it a Chrysler? Is it an Imperial?) kept sales numbers somewhat low.

Sell it to Gas Monkey Garage, just make sure to ask for $3k first.

I may have a lead on parts, too. Not sure. At one point the FIL had 3 or 4 parts cars, but I haven't seen them lately.

Sold! To a fellow in PA who already owns a '68. Good home, I think.

If the seller backs out let me know, you should still have my number.

The 67 440 with closed chamber 915 casting heads was worth the price of admission alone.

He called me Friday noon, and was at my house Friday at 5PM. Cash in hand, trailer behind truck. He already has a 68 4 door, and wanted a coupe.

Seemed like a good guy, hopefully it'll get back on the road.
