1931 Chrysler CG Imperial Dual Cowl Phaeton
VIN: 7801633 Engine: L-head inline eight-cylinder engine Horsepower: 125HP Transmission: 4-Speed Manual
The 1931 Chrysler Imperial with coachwork by LeBaron, especially in dual cowl form, is one of the most beautiful and sexy American cars of the classic era. LeBarons signature vee windscreen and fender design are even more beautiful in person. This particular example is one of the most significant, greatest and most original examples left today.
Most notably, this car was previously owned by the great collector and singer James Melton of Connecticut who purchased the car in the late 1940's or early 1950's. It then went to Dr. Robert DeHart of Massachusetts who purchased the car from Melton in the late 1950's. He restored the car in 1963 and kept it until the 1980's when it was sold to the well known Chrysler collector David Huckins of New Hampshire. He restored the car again to its present and beautiful condition it is in today. Body, Chassis, engine, everything is original to this car which is very seldom seen today on these cars. The powerful straight eight engine runs beautiful and the car looks amazing. If you are looking for a very beautiful and significant American classic, this is it both with its delightful looks and outstanding provenance.
