    I purchased this car in August 1990 from the son of the original owner. I am, thereby, the second owner of this fine automobile. This car has most of the features that are normally installed on an Imperial but it is missing a few items.

    Among the missing optional features are...

    If you know of any other features this car is missing, please let me know.

    I bought the car in St. Laurent, Manitoba, and drove it about 1 hour back to my home in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The engine and transmission seem to be strong. The paint and vinyl top are both in excellent condition. All of the power features work. I took the car directly to my mechanic to have him do a mechanical safety inspection. Such an inspection is required in order to get registration and insurance for a car in Manitoba. The car didn't exactly pass with flying colours.
    The list of needs reads like this... As you can see, there is much to do on this car. I have detailed what I HAVE done here. Take a look at the pictures of this pretty little car below.

    These are a few of the features this car has (in no particular order)...

    Automatic Temperature Control

    Automatic Speed Control,
    Driver's Side Air-Bag
    (the passenger's side only has an air-bag when the wife is along for the ride)

    8 Way Power Seats with 2 Position Memory Feature

    Power Door Locks,
    Power Windows with Driver's Window 'Auto-Down' Feature

    Courtesy Lamps in the All Four Doors

    Power Trunk Lid Release and Easy Access Fuse Panel

    Dual Illuminated Vanity Mirrors

    6 Speaker Infinity Stereo with Cassette Deck

    'Mark Cross' Leather Seating (sounds impressive, right?!)

    Message Centre (now this would be a REAL luxury car if it included a Massage Centre as well!)

    Dual Heated Power Mirrors (also part of the 2 position memory control for the driver's seat)

    Rear Door Power Window Controls and Integrated Ash Tray and Cigar Lighter (eeewwww!)

    Anti-lock Brakes

    Rear Seat Passenger Shoulder Harness

    Rear Seat Map Pockets

    Rear Seat Overhead Lighting

    Rear Overhead Lighting

    Power Trunk Lid Closer
    (I call this feature the 'finger-grabber'. Keep out of reach of young children!)

    Cornering Lights

    Power Reclining Front Seats

    Rear Fold-down Arm-rest

    Remote Fuel Door Release

    While yarding the other day, I spotted a 1988 New Yorker that had very 'Tufted Velour Seats with Rear Seat Headrests' that I just HAD to have.. I brought them home and installed them in the Imperial. I think they look much nicer than the dirty and worn 'leather' seats that the Imperial came with.

    I took the following pictures the day I went to see the car for the first time. You'll notice that the PO never even bothered to vacuum the car out before putting it up for sale. I'll never understand that kind of "marketing".
