@Edgar, the "Imperial sedan" designation used here, refers to the fact that it was a limousine, which was referred to by Caddy as an "Imperial sedan". It has nothing to do with the Chrysler Imperial or Imperial marques.

@david. Are you saying only sports cars are collectible? A modern mustang GT will beat %99 of cars made prior to 1990. Anyone that buys a classic car isn't after top of the line performance. PS my dream car, 59 eldorado barritz, goes for $250k

Me too

I expected more!

Such a gorgeous car!

This car is a POS

I'm sure it is more comfortable lol

Sure looks more comfortable than the cloth covered slabs that pass as rear seats in most modern cars.
