Ever see a car and the first thing you think is: I wonder what it would cost to replace a piece of glass in thing…if I could even find it. You might get that feeling if you owned this next car, or you might be concerned about getting some piece of trim or one of those dashboard switches or any one of the thousands of pieces of bling that makes this car so incredible in the first place. I guess my point is that if you are going to drive a car like this, then you’d better be prepared to enjoy the ride because they will never make anything like it again or any of its parts. Find this 1959 Imperial LeBaron offered for $15,000 in Dallas, TX via Hagerty Classifieds.
