Lot # 107 1929 Chrysler Imperial L80 Convertible Coupe, Body by Locke; S/N RR143P; Engine # L5098; Cream, Black fenders/Black; Cream cloth top; Estimate $79,195 - $110,873; Modified restoration, 3- condition; Hammered Sold at $51,477 plus commission of 12.00%; Final Price $57,654 – RHD. Black wire wheels, blackwall tires, hydraulic brakes, rumble seat, dual rear spares. Freshly restored for the current Peking-Paris rally but not used. Heavy duty springs, 12 volt electrical system. 3.77 rear axle, overdrive, 15’ wheels. Weak paint, quickly reupholstered interior, sloppy top, sloppy panel fits. One of only 4 known survivors in this body style of 142 built. Includes the original wood spoke wheels. This is a car built for something like Peking-Paris and not the show field. While the cosmetics are disappointing the mechanics seem to have been intelligently dealt with. It brought a price that reflected its presentation and not the potential driving experience, a price that is probably less than it would cost to prepare it, even if the Chrysler were free. Rugged American cars of this era are the secrets of intelligent long distance historic rallies, something undervalued in this Chrysler's result.
