Classic Cars: Know Where to Look for Rust Before Buying

If you're thinking about buying a classic car, you should know where to look for rust and how extensive the repair might be.


Classic Car Overview

By definition, any classic car holds a certain inherent degree of rarity. After all, just as is the case with land, they arent making any more and, as the years pass, most of those snatched up by the buying public have long since fallen by the wayside. In the case of this 1933 Chrysler Imperial CQ Roadster, the term rare is a glaring understatement. Only 243 CQs in convertible form were made in the first place and the survivors still remaining are so limited in number you could likely count them on one hand, so the level of collectability here is exceedingly rare. Factor in this Chryslers unusually strong running condition and unrelenting authenticity and that opportunity becomes virtually unparalleled. As this vintage Chrysler pulls up youll know its something truly special right away. This is no repro, after all, but the real thing and its in precise and thoroughly stock configuration, with a pair of full-size spare tires properly mounted at its sides and an endlessly stylish split windshield with dual cowl vents. Its two-tone exterior is an absolute standout, with a black backdrop ornamented by tan accents that would make this car appear right at home at an art deco museum exhibit. The paint itself is looking strong already - a through cut and buff session will elevate it even further - and the collection of chrome on board presents nicely: check out the front grille bracketed by the pair of headlights perched on the front fenders. Should you find yourself behind the wheel of this stellar classic when the skies darken, the tan canvas convertible top is well fitted and sports a clear glass rear window. Given the standards shown by the exterior, youd rightfully expect to be impressed as you open the door and climb inside. You wont be disappointed. The interior on this convertible is a showstopper, featuring a broad bench seat thats been refreshed in an ultra-sharp leather cover, with suede accents that are surrounded by contrasting red piping. Youll notice right away that theres quite an assortment of burlwood accenting on display inside the doors - on the steering wheel, throughout the dash area and on the tops of the doors - and its fresh appearance suggests that it was all reconditioned very recently. While in most cars calling shotgun first gets you the best seat in the house, in this case you can make a strong argument that that position is inside the rumble seat in back. Its also been thoroughly refurbished and nicely matches the rest of the interior. In addition to its impactful curb appeal, this classic offers a surprisingly strong driving experience. The 298 straight 8 cylinder in its engine compartment has a steamed clean look that stands as proof it gets its fair share of attention, with its signature red heads really popping against the silver backdrop of the engine block. Its got plenty of functionality to match - fed by a period-correct 2-barrel carb, starting up promptly and pulling with enthusiasm, which is especially impressive considering its almost certainly the original engine. The vintage powerplant pairs with a 3-speed manual transmission thats also likely been in place since this droptop hit the road. A set of 17 wire wheels wearing immaculate 7.00x17 whitewall tires add just the right finishing touch to this one of a kind vehicle. As rare as can be and in unusually sharp condition, this 1933 Chrysler Imperial CQ Roadster presents a seldom encountered opportunity for the discriminating collector. Call today!
