Harry's Thoughts

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

THE ESSENTIALS

This is a Southern California since new “black plate” Crown Imperial four door sedan.  This is a beautifully re-painted, yet otherwise original Crown Imperial. What could be better than a California 42,000 mile Imperial that has had two owners since new?  Black is the right color for a Crown Imperial- so elegant and sleek!

This has been owned for over twenty years by my long time mentor, Dick Benjamin.  Dick was a retired engineering genius that devoted himself to his family and motorcars.  This Imperial is no exception.

Dick bought this car from the original owner, Mr. Broderick of the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles. The Crown Imperial had amassed 35,000 miles when Dick acquired the car. It had been stored from 1978 to 2002. It was a wonderful original car in white with a black vinyl top.

Dick then proceeded with a full factory quality repaint and new trunk carpeting, making sure that all the factory details were kept. He did a full and complete color change to the present deep and luxurious black and removed the vinyl top. Everything else on the car is original and detailed beautifully.

During the repainting, Dick had the engine and transmission removed, completely gone through, detailed and reinstalled. The engine compartment is beautiful.  The restoration was completed in 2004.

This appears to be fully loaded with factory air and power everything!  It has been toured extensively in CHVA car tours throughout the country. The most recent tour was in 2010 when the Benjamin’s toured with the Crown Imperial throughout Montana and Yellowstone with the CHVA. It was awarded “the Most Favorite Car” on the Tour.

The Crown Imperials were a high-end offering with only 9,415 produced in 1967.  The Imperials were offered with the venerable 350 HP 440 cu in wedge head V8.  The torque produced was massive, rated at 480 lb.ft. at 2,800 RPM.  The engine was paired to the proven Torquflite three speed automatic transmission.

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!
