Charles Leone's Black Beauty replica

Imperial Home Page -> Imperials by Year -> 1966-> Charles Leone Black Beauty


The below are notes and photos from Charles on his Black Beauty cloning project:

These are photos of my Black Beauty. I fabricated all the metal myself; that's all hand formed and as you can see there's no bondo on there. Of course its not in shiny black paint, so most people won't see the diamond in the rough!

I've been building cars for many years. I'm a self taught mechanic and body man. I started working on cars when i was 10 years old. I followed the custom cars and their creators.

I took measurements off the #2 Black Beauty when I was a teenager. I could have bought the #2 Black Beauty for $20.000 many years ago..
