1967 Imperial Crown, 4-Door, 42k Miles, 2 Owners, Fabulous!
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.
