Harry's Thoughts

This is a very nice example that is sure to help make its new caretaker many happy memories!

THE ESSENTIALS

In 1964 the Crown Imperial was considered the newest prestige car for America.   The beauty of materials and build qaulity far surpasses most any other luxury motorcar of the time.  This Crown Imperial is resplendent in Persian White with the elegant Blue Cloth and Leather interior.  This Crown Imperial was purchased new in Portland, Oregon by a doctor and was owned for 30 years by the photographer for the Woodburn Dragstrip in Woodburn, Oregon.

This is an exceptionally clean original car.  The interior is excellent with only the normal moderate leather cracking on the edge of the drivers seat.  The fabric, carpet and balance of the gorgeous interior is in very good to excellent condition.  The paint appears to be original with signs of touch-up.  The chrome is very good to excellent and is original.   Overall, this motorcar is something to get excited about as the condition reflects a car that has been well loved since new.

This Crown Imperial has benefitted from a set of radials.  When combined with it’s 129 inch wheelbase and a total length of 227.8 inches, this Crown Imperial drives beautifully.  And drives she does.  The present owner has a large collection and has chosen to use this daily as his choice of transportation!

The Crown Imperial came with the 413 cu in V8 producing 340 hp.  It was the last year for the convenient push button automatic transmission.  1964 Imperials shared the beautiful Elwood Engle design.  Many people noticed a resemblance to the Lincolns of the early 60’s, also an Elwood Engle design.  With 14,181 Crown Imperial sedans built, these are rare luxury motorcars.  The total cost of about $6,000 when new limited their sales to the very wealthy.

This is indeed a rare opportunity to own a elegant and gorgeous Crown Imperial for a reasonable value.  Every item on this car, from the door handles, to the hood latch, exhibits exceptional engineering and build quality.  This car will sell quickly!

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!
