Description

RARE EARLY PRODUCTION, SUPER CLEAN & ALMOST ALL SURVIVOR, PERSIAN WHITE PAINT

This 1964 Chrysler Imperial Crown sedan represents the Mopar equivalent of the Cadillac Eldorado or Lincoln Continental, a top-of-the-line luxury car with big power and comfort. This is the far less common 2-door hardtop version, and with an awesome color combination and all the power accessories, it's a great way to stand out without giving up any of the creature comforts we take for granted today.

The handsome styling was '60s modern, restrained and clean, with just enough ornamentation to make it look expensive. Chrysler was done with Imperials that looked like a mixture of eras and designs, and the clean-sheet design by Elwood Engel (designer of the awesome suicide door Lincolns) the all-new '64 Imperial was an imposing car. This one still wears Persian White paint and all 19 or so feet of it looks great today. Finish quality is still quite good, with a proper shine to the paint and doors that open and close easily. A few Continental-esque design cues remain, including the stainless trim along the crowns of the fenders and doors, plus a neo-Continental hump on the deck lid, just above the sleek pointed bumper and taillights. A black vinyl top adds a formal look and the brightwork is in very good condition with only light signs of age on a few pieces.

The red leather interior is drop-dead gorgeous and only the front seat has been recovered, while the rear seat appears to be in excellent original condition. The instrument panel offers a complete set of gauges and plenty of buttons and knobs for fans of 1960s tech and the steering wheel is made of clear plastic with a horn ring that seems to float in the center. Features include power windows and locks and factory A/C, plus Chrysler's version of cruise control called "Auto Pilot." Bright stainless trim accentuates the door panels and the door handles are perhaps the interior's coolest feature. There's even a rear defogger, which was still a novel feature in 1964. Only the radio seems to be non-functional, but that's an easy problem to solve and does nothing to diminish the elegance of the interior. And for road trips, nothing beats a big luxury car, especially one with a beautifully upholstered trunk with tons of storage space.

Chrysler's muscular 413 cubic inch V8 means this car is an effortless cruiser and the massive powerplant never seems to work very hard. It's quite nicely detailed under the hood with mostly original equipment, including the A/C system and big air cleaner up top. Corporate Turquoise engine enamel makes it look like a proper Chrysler under the hood and the list of recent equipment means that it should be reliable for the long haul. It starts easily and idles almost silently, with only a comforting hum coming from the single exhaust pipe out back. A TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission (push-button, of course) feeds the original rear end, and one glance underneath will demonstrate just how nicely preserved this car really is. Big 8.20-15 US Royal whitewall tires give it a period-perfect look and surround ornate factory wheel covers.

Big luxury that you won't see at every show, this Imperial definitely deserves to be included with the great Lincolns and Cadillacs of the era. Call today!
