“America’s Most Carefully Built Car”

One of 749 custom hardtop coupes built for 1963, there is less than a handful on the Imperial registry today.

The condition of this car is listed as a number 2 on the registry - out of 14121 different Imperials built for 1963, only 117 are now listed

Imported from USA (Arizona) in 2006.

I purchased this car from an agent who was hired by the son of the deceased owner to liquidate part of the original estate. This car lived its whole life in Arizona before coming here.

The owners name was Robert Geneva, he bought the car new in 1963. At the same time he also bought a '63 Imperial 4 door sedan for the family. This was his personal car, while the sedan was for family outings. It’s done very few miles considering its age

All I have done to this car is:

Compliance – this necessitated new brakes all round. It has new shoes (drums were lightly machined) and I have since installed a new master cylinder

I replaced the 1 1/78” single exhaust with 2 1’4” twin exhaust, widened the original rims 25mm outwards and re baked enameled them, cleaned the fuel tank with POR15 and reinstalled with new fuel filter

This car drives beautifully, handles like a dream and is totally reliable. This car is wider, longer, rarer and (in my opinion) more beautiful than the 1963 Cadillac

Car comes with original service manual, sales brochures and all paperwork and receipts.

Trans has a slight leak and doesn't shift out of 1st until warm (less than 5 mins on a cold day)
