Harry's Thoughts

I love the style of this Imperial. Look at the headlights, tail lights and the steering wheel just to get a hint of the design that went into the Imperials. These are arguably the best engineered cars built in the US.

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a gorgeous 1962 Imperial Crown Coupe that is a rust-free western car in spectacular original condition. These Imperials are incredibly rare.  This is one of less than 1,100 examples ever produced.

This Imperial was bought new at the Cullen-Thompson Motor Company in Denver, Colorado by Mr. Earl C. Liston on June 5th, 1962.  Mr. Liston was from Wheatridge, Colorado and took fastidious care of the car throughout his stewardship.  By 1975 the Imperial had accumulated 97,000 miles and by August of 1980 it had 103,286 miles from new.  It was then sold to its present owner, Mr. Stan Jason of Tucson, AZ, in about 1994.  Mr. Jason had a collection of about 10 very special cars with all of them being coupes and convertibles.  This Imperial is ready for any local or regional car show and has a wonderful presence.  This is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

The livery was beautifully repainted in its original Oyster White (Paint Code WW1) and is in excellent condition today.  The paint has only a few very small chips from normal use.  This Imperial is loaded with chrome and stainless steel trim all of which are in very good to excellent condition.  Only very small scratches appear which are only noticeable upon closer inspection.  All the door jambs and engine compartment are original and are in very nice condition.  The overall presentation of the car is simply stunning.

The interior is all original and is in beautiful condition.  The original Red Leather upholstery (Trim Code 555) has a wonderful patina has only light creases from normal use.  The belt-dyed red leather is very soft and supple with no dryness or cracking.  The dashboard is nearly perfect with no cracking or fading.  This Imperial was obviously garaged since new.  The interior chrome is beautiful and is without the normal pitting.  There are only some very slight scratching on the drivers door likely from fingernails from normal use.  We love the rectangular shaped steering wheel and push button transmissions that look straight out of the Jetson’s.  The carpeting is the original matching red loop in excellent condition with only wear being visible in the drivers heal pad area.

Mechanically, this Imperial is in excellent condition.  Driving this is a pleasure.  The instrumentation works well and we especially love the horizontal movement of the speedometer, again, reminiscent of the Jetson’s!  The engine compartment is in beautiful original condition.  The hood pad, paint and overall condition is very nice for the age and mileage.  See the 158-point inspection report for details, but this Imperial really needs nothing to be enjoyed.  The 413 CID V8 has 340 hp that is transmitted through the three-speed Torque Flite Automatic transmission with push-button selector.

This Imperial will prove to be a terrific value.  The NADA Guide values for this are:  High Retail $46,000 and Average Retail $24,250.  Hagerty has this model valued at $38,600 for a No. 1 and $27,100 for a No. 2.

This Imperial is available for viewing at our Phoenix showroom.  For more details and information, text, call or email Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or harry@classicpromenade.com.

These are well built cars and in my opinion very attractive inside and out. My family had a 61 when I was growing up. If I didn’t have a 63 already I would certainly be in the hunt for this beauty.

This is definitely an era when engineering met equally with design. They are great cars and will definitely be classics in the future.

Interesting Fact: From 1955 to 1975, and then again from 1981 to 1983, Imperial was Chrysler Corporations luxury model. Prior to 1955, Imperial had simply been used as a nameplate, but was spun off as its own company under Chrysler in 1955 to see if it could compete with some North American rivals.   Every two or three years, Imperial would release new or modified models with V8 engines and technology that would be given to them directly from Chrysler. Beginning in 1957, the Imperial Crown, a mid-range variant, was introduced. The design ideas behind most Imperial Crowns was for the vehicle to be boxy and wide, which was a choice followed until production stopped.   There were only minimal styling changes from year to year, and two-door hardtops were the most popular choice at the time. Engines used in this model vary from a Hemi V8 to a Wedge V8, but both options provided the Crown with powerful performance. Car collectors still search for this historic vehicle to add to their collection!
