Bonjour Philippe, Have just read your story recounting the restoration of the 57 Crown convertable. You have done a magnificent job in restoring a magnificent automobile and at the same time preserving your marriage! You have great courage and determination, I admire you Philippe. It is difficult even in the US. to accomplish such a feat! Your car is truly beautiful. Thank you for sharing it with us. I will mail you a photograph of my 59.

Kindest Regards, Tom Green

Over the years, I have contined to return to your Web Pages story of restoring your most precious 1957 Imperial Convertible.
The manner in which you continually conquered the obstacles, and never retreated from the task, makes you a man who has lived a life so outstanding, and full of achievement, that very few people in the World can match the Honor and Respect that we in the IML associate with the name of Philippe Courant!

Thank you very much from another IMPERIALIST.

You should be very proud of your car. It's truly wonderful!  Mike Meyer   /  That's a very beautiful Imperial you have. And it looks like an equally beautiful day too. Art Beaumont Calgary, Alberta, Canada.   /   Great photos, Philippi! That's some camera, keep them coming. It's good to see the effort "across the pond". Ray Jones.   / bonjour philippe. c'est un bon auto! next time I make it to france on business, I will have to try harder to come south & see your cars. thanks for posting on the 300 site as well. still to cold here in canada to think about pulling them out for a quick spin, but summer will come. Lindsey Fuller  /   I enjoyed the photos of your 1957 Imperial. I sent a copy of your e-mail to Ken Miller, who lives close to us in Portland. He owned two 57 Imperials for about twenty years. He sold them about 10 years ago. He still has two Imperial convertibles, a 1961 and a 1968  John & Arlys Chesnutt, Portland, OR.    /   All I can say is "WOW"!!!!! /   Philippe : GORGEOUS ! Russ Fine, Alabama, USA   /   Hi Philippe. Great pics! Mind if I post one of them on the Mopar portion(s) of my website? Jerry Browarski / Very nice! Thank you for sharing this.John baker  /   WOW! Beautiful car. Congratulations on your restoration results.Take Care, Frank /  Those pics of your '57 convertible are fantastic! I'm quite jealous, and can't imagine the reaction to seeing this majestic example of Americana cruising the roads of France. Enjoy! Ross Klein   / Thanks Philippe,good PICs & nice of you to share. Denis RWC / Very nice pics Philippe. Are the yellow stickers reproduction? If so, where  maY I obtain a set? Regards, Bob / Very nice. I've enjoyed reading your many emails about the car so it's great to see pictures.John B   / You have a truly outstanding vehicle. My hat is off to you! It makes me wonder if mine will ever even come close to looking anywhere near as good.(..) You have put so much work into your car, not to mention time and money. Do you happen to have pictures of it when you got it for comparison purposes? Hugh  / That car of yours looks almost perfect, even under the hood. I didn't know that the 57's had such interesting looking air cleaners, is it some form of oil bath type? I like your floor mats as well with the eagle emblem. It would be nice to find something as suitable for my car when I can get it to that stage. Best Regards Arran Foster /   Nice pictures Phillipe, and a beautiful car also. Thanks for sharing the photo's with us! Bill Melichar 1959 Crown Southampton /   Your car really is a beauty, and you took some very nice picture of it! I could never see enough of your car, so I hope the next time the weather is nice, you'll take some more photos, including some detail shots of all of your wonderful green interior. In the mean time, I'd love it if you could mail me the large size photos that you've just taken and allow me to use them on the club website. Thanks! Mike Trettin   / Je viens d'aller voir le bel objet ! Bravo ! Il me semble que le tapis de sol vert est très vert. C'est normal ? Et ce gros fil qui dépasse sous le tableau de bord, ça sert à quoi ? Est-ce que tu ne pense pas qu'une "batterie à l'ancienne" ferait plus beau ? Tout ça, c'est pour dire quelque chose, car l'auto est bien belle... Congratulations !

Hi Philippe,

The Imperial looks absolutely stunning!

You mentioned another convertible converted into a truck - funnily enough, the guy I bought your car from was considering making it into a truck because of it's "......V8 engine!" Can you believe it??
Now, please let me know what your next favourite car is so that I can see if I have one? - You won't know what to do with all the spare time!
Seriously, the car is a real credit to you and I am pleased to have beenable to 'help' in some small way.

Note: Stewart Homan is the "boss" of Dream Cars (London, UK) who sold me the car 7 years ago !

Je viens de voir le 14ème épisode, et dernier. Mais tu t'avances un peu trop en disant qu'il n'y aura pas de 2ème histoire sans fin. Te connaissant, tu vas ressentir un manque, et lorsqu'il y aura une autre "belle" qui t'aura fait du charme, ne vas-tu pas "succomber à la tentation" (et "on ne te délivrera pas du mal" AMEN ... J'ai de beaux restes ! )
Un détail: au tout début de l'Histoire, il y a un ? après fin: ? Tu peux maintenant compléter: octobre 2001 !

Hi Philippe;
Thanks for a great photo spread. This is a magnificant task you have nearly finished, especialy with you being in an Europian country with no local source of used parts. It's hard enough to do this in the USA as the junkyards with old cars are getting scarce. Great job!! and thanks again for sharing it with us.

I have followed your story over the past two years and am pleased that you are now able to drive the fruits of your labor. I was in France on Vacation in early October on a canal boat. We picked up our boat in Buzet and travelled on the Biese to Valance and back. I was so close to Pau but did not have any time to explore in that area otherwise I would have contacted you and seen the Imperial in Person.

What a shame ! I'm only 100 miles from Buzet (good wine !). I think you travelled on the "Canal de la Garonne". For those who'll go to South France, let me know ..

Philippe -

Congratulations on the completion of your project !! What a tough job, especially being a continent away from all suppliers and parts cars. And the fact that most Imperial parts are 'Imperial only'. You should be proud of your accomplishment.
A couple of thoughts:
You should be able to get that speedometer to work. You said it was a magnet that caused the needle to move. Is it some kind of electromagnetic setup ? If so, maybe one of the internal wires is corroded, which would create enough resistance to not allow the needle to go above 20mph. Just a thought. Try disassembling one of the spare ones for ideas.
It's very difficult to photograph white cars. Even the pale yellow of my 58 Plymouth washes out when the sun is shining. Two possible ways of overcoming this is to use the slowest film you can find. This will give you a longer gray scale. Also, avoid shooting on sunny days. Cloudy or cloudy-bright days seem to work best for me. If you still encounter washout, you can put the picture thru Photoshop or other picturing editing software and bring down the contrast somewhat.

Like that white 59 Dodge. I assume it's a friend's car. Was that also aframe-off ?

Ron

Thanks for the advises ! Problem about the speedo is the magnet (not electric magnet) which has lost its magnetism. Need to be re-magnetize but the main problem is to remove the speedo assy !!
The '59 Dodge of my friend is a Coronet 2-dr HT (V8). The car has been restored but not a frame-off job.

Philippe: I've had my 57 Dodge D500 since 10/80, but am relatively newto 'this' board.
Nice car; GHANA, huh????? Wow; whatta history THAT car has!
Anyway, & it's probably too-late, now, but I gotta say that you can make the wheels very "pretty" by 'hiding' the wheel-weights "inside and/or behind" the wheels", instead of "visibly" on the 'fronts' of the wheels.
Don't let ANYBODY tell you that you "can't" balance the wheels, without front-mounted balance-weights.
I've had my car @ over 100mph (& ubder, @ all speeds) , & my 'hidden' balance-weights, over the past 20 years of ownership have not given me ANY problems (& the 'naked/exposed' wheel-rims look great, & PRETTY)>
Enjoy your car, & be sure to DRIVE it; life is short, & there's plenty of MoPars , in heaven, I hear!

Finally got to read this, Philippe, and all I can say, is well done! Both the restoration article and of course, Your beautiful Imperial, are superb! Maybe I shouldn't ask, but do you have any pics of the other unfortunate Imperial that got turned into a carryall?

Sorry but the owner (who has also a '58 wrecked convertible..) never sent me a pic except via fax which isn't the best quality for pics !

This is truly the best story of an Imperial restoration anywhere that I know of - book, magazine, Internet, in other parallel universes, etc. You are to be congratulated for the story AND the diligence and effort you have put into a wonderful project.
I'll nominate Philippe for "Imperialist of the Year", with Dave Duricy and Dick Benjamin (who probably retired the trophy years ago) as closeseconds!

I am a Canadian from Vancouver now living in Sacramento California.

I have owned 2 beautiful 58 Imperials a crown 2 door hard top and a Convertible. My Convertible was one of a few built for Princess Margarets Canadian tour in 1958. She (thebeautiful car) is white with deep blue (royal blue?) top and medium blue leather interior and upon delivery of the car to me, it had about 85ooo Kilometers showing. I sold the car a fewyears ago and bought an airplane. Finding this web site and reading your story is thrilling! The Imperial is a magnificant automobile. You are correct that the fit of body parts was notgood even from the factory. The Center Plane Brakes, though 12 inches in diameter, are not very effective and because I owned a brake repair shop in Vancouver, I used a rivettedlining with the friction material made by Bendix and was an FF friction quality. Worked wonderful.
The silicone brake fluid is not a good fluid. Almost impossible to rid of bubbles and it causes the metal wheel cylinders and master cylinder bores to corrode quickly. If your car was mine,I would flush the fluid out using methyl hydrate and refill and bleed with ATE 200 series fluid. This Dot 3 or 4 fluid is extremely stable and does not quickly absorb moisture and is veryheat resistant.
Again, Philippe, thank you for a great story and photos. I am excited to see you beautiful finished vehicle.

Yours truly,
Dallas Reagh

Dear Philippe,

Thank you very much for sharing your Imperial restoration story with the 300 Club members. I really enjoy reading it and can understand the great challenge you have faced. I have done a complete body off frame restoration on a 1951 Chrysler Windsor convertible, and it took me 5 years and about $30,000.
Beautiful job, and I am anxious to see the photos of the complete car.
