1965 Chrysler Imperial Convertible


Not Just A Museum

The McCandless Collection will take you back to the days of "The Forward Look Era" automotive design, racing, and drivers themselves. We guarantee an unforgettable experience. With so many classic vehicles under one roof, we have something everyone will get excited about.

Sometimes you buy a car that isn’t as described. When this was purchased six years ago, it showed up as a ”restored” car. Unfortunately, the block had a hole in it, held together with putty. With a plan to go to Chryslers at Carlisle, we quickly transplanted a motor that had been rebuilt from a 1962 Imperial. There is nothing original about this car but it gets driven a LOT. This is one of the best cars in the collection for pure driving fun.

The original 1965 Chrysler Imperial Convertible is a true masterpiece of American automotive engineering. The sleek lines and bold styling of this classic car are truly something to behold. It’s a true testament to the craftsmanship of the era, and it’s a car that any classic car enthusiast should be proud to own.

One of the things that sets the 1965 Imperial Convertible apart from other cars of the era is its massive 440 cubic inch V8 engine. This powerful engine provides plenty of get-up-and-go, making it a true thrill to drive. The car is also equipped with a 3-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission, which provides smooth and seamless shifting.

The interior of the 1965 Imperial Convertible is just as impressive as the exterior. The car is outfitted with luxurious leather seats and a host of other high-end features, such as air conditioning and power windows. The dash is also beautifully designed and features a full array of gauges and controls.

Another thing that sets the 1965 Imperial Convertible apart from other cars of the era is its top-of-the-line suspension and braking system. This car is built to handle like a dream, making it a pleasure to drive on both straightaways and winding roads.

Overall, the 1965 Chrysler Imperial Convertible is a true classic car that should be treasured by any enthusiast. It’s a car that is built to last, and one that will provide many years of driving enjoyment. Whether you’re a collector or just someone who loves to drive, this car is sure to please.
