Welcome! Here you will find Chryslers & Imperials and a few other brands owned, operated, and maintained by Robert M. Soule. I have been an avid collector of Chryslers and Imperials for over 27 years. In this time span, I have owned well over 100 cars.

At present my collection stands at 19 restored or in-progress cars and 26 parts cars plus or minus. The collection consists of the following:

1964 Imperial LeBaron Landau Ghia Limo.

4 - door sedan NOT FOR SALE

413 V-8 365 bhp

64ghiab.jpg (14917 bytes)

The above pictures are of my 1964 Imperial LeBaron Ghia Limousine.  This car has the rare small oval rear window and the rear side glass was deleted.  This is the formal landau option.  Only 2 of these cars are know to exist with this unusual option.  This car originally belonged to Henry J. Kaiser the well known industrialist.  I purchased this car in Knoxville, Tennessee around 1990.  I have made a reasonable amount of progress with the restoration.  However, I was not happy with the paint and body work and expect to redo the paint.  When I purchased the car in 1990 I drove it to Chattanooga and it drove very well, the air worked, as did the windows, cruse control, and even the  radio worked.  Mechanically, the car is sound requiring little repair.  Someday soon I hope it will once again look like the picture below.

1965 Chrysler New Yorker

4 - door hardtop

413 V-8 350 bhp

28.jpg (153713 bytes)

I have owned this 1965 Chrysler New Yorker pictured above for 25 years.  It is a fine driving car and an excellent road car.  This car survived a wreck in 1982 at the hands of a friend who had borrowed the car for his Senior Prom.  The car sat for 18 years in my grandmother's basement until I finally had all the parts and the desire to fix it.  It is only here today thanks to my grandmother's fondness for the car and her willingness to store it for me.

Pictured above is my 1973 Benz 300 SEL 4.5 it is presently for sale. This car comes with a parts car also. The chrome and interior are good and the paint is very recent. Over all this car is a #3+ or better car. It runs well and the air is cold. It has new brakes, new tires, and a new exhaust system. I am asking $6,500 for this car. This is well under the book value on this car.
