I AM A NEW MEMBER AND HAVE NEVER GOTTEN IN
ON THE CONVERSATIONS BEFORE, SO FORGIVE IF THIS IS THE WRONG WAY AND PLEASE STRAIGHTEN ME OUT.
I HAVE BEEN A CHRYSLER LOVER SINCE I OWNED
MY 1954 IMPERIAL IN 1970. UNFORTUNATELY I HAD TO LEAVE HER IN CALIFORNIA IN 1985. I HAVE BEEN SORT OF
LOOKING EVER SINCE AND WAS REWARDED LAST MONTH.
I FOUND A 1952 CUSTOM IMPERIAL WITH
11,000 (OR MAYBE 111,000) MILES ON IT JUST LAST MONTH IN OREGON
VIA 50+ YEARS IN PERTHUMP,
NEVADA. IT IS PRIME AND PICTURES
MY QUESTION IS: SOUTH
FLORIDA IS HOT. THERE WAS NO AC IN 1952. I HAVE CONTACTED VINTAGE
AIR AND THE ISSUE IS MY IMPERIAL, AS WAS MY “54, IS SIX VOLT. ALL THEIR
SYSTEMS ARE FOR 12 VOLT. ANY SUGGESTIONS OR EXPERIENCE WITH SAME? 12 VOLT DEEP
CYCLE BATTERY IN TRUNK AND PLUG IT IN?
SOMEONE HAS TO HAVE CONFRONTED THIS
BY THE WAY, DID ANYBODY SEE THAT 1953
CROWN IMPERIAL ON EBAY THAT WENT FOR $40,500? IT WAS GORGEOUS.

The price difference in motor fuels in other countries, has little to
do with the cost of crude, or refining. The major factor is the TAXES , gas in
South America, is as little as 17 cents per gallon, Norway has vast oil and gas
reserves, but are taxed $4-5 per gallon. Here we pay about 60-70 cents per gal.

are just different ways of calculating the octane.
