When it comes to vintage automobiles, California and the West Coast of the United States have always been the most desirable the world over for many reasons; the mild climate and the fact that many automotive trends started in California. The automobile is the perfect technological symbol of American culture, a tangible expression of our quest to level space, time, and class and a reflection of our relentless mobility, social and otherwise. You see automobiles advertised the world over described as California cars because at some point they were in California or drove through California. A true California car is one that was sold new in California and titled in California, one that has the original plates that are on that title is a true California car.We are liquidating a collection of over 300 actual California cars. This is a collection that took 70 years to comprise. Most have the original paint and original California licence plates issued to them when they were new.

Up for a NO RESERVE auction is a 1965 Imperial Le Baron. This car is a solid Imperial that can be a good restoration piece or an imperfect patina cruiser. It is the top of the line La Baron model which comes with a smaller rear window, rear passenger straps and rear reading lights, power windows and wing window, 100 year old Claro Walnut wood interior, passenger mirror, "Auto Pilot" otherwise known as cruise control, a tilt steering wheel. This 65 is an original triple black car and has a 440 in it. This bad ass sedan has the bones to be a pavementpounding cruiser.
Cosmetically this car is in decent condition. The body is pretty straight and solid there are a few small bubbles under the passenger doors and the worst being the back trunk panel has some rust. The good thing is the panel is apart of the body and can be replaced. The Chrome is in decent shape, it shines there are a few imperfections like the rear bumper. The paint is dull but could be buffed out to get some more shine. The vinyl top has been removed and the top is solid. All the glass is in good condition with no cracks. The hubcapsare all in decent condition. Overall this car is not perfect but in pretty solid shape for a 54 year car, it wouldn't take much to fix and paint it or just leave it as is with all its patina.
Mechanically the car runs and drives. The motor has been replaced with a 440 from a 1970 Imperial. It runs good with no issues and sounds good with a dual exhaust. The transmission shifts but the linkage needs to be adjusted. The brakes all stop. and the lights work.
The interior of this car is original and in ok condition. The carpet is in good shape with no rips in it. The front seat will need to be reupholstered the back seat is in decent original shape with no holes but some cracking in the leather. The headliner is in great shape with no imperfections. The dash is in good shape with no cracks and nothing is missing. All of the power window components will need to be gone through as well as the cruise control and Sentry light.

NO RESERVE THIS ITEM WILL SELL TO THE FINAL BIDDER!This listing includes well over 100 detailed photos and the vehicle has been described as descriptive as possible. If there is anything that is unclear or additional information is is need please don't hesitate to ask. Please ask any questions before bidding. Thanks and Good Luck
