1964 Chrysler Imperial Crown Coupe

Rare beautiful show stopper. Hand sanded and entire paint job by Vescios of Rogers in late 2016. Returned to like new condition. Original owner from Florida. Second owner from Minnesota stored inside. Power steering, brakes, seats, aerial, auto pilot, push button drive, rebuilt carburetor.  Mileage shows at 39,503. Chrysler Corporation’s Imperial line finally entered the 1960s proper with the car’s, 1964 redesign, courtesy of Elwood Engle. Gone were the fins and chrome of the 1963 model, and new were slab sides, razor-edged lines, and subtle trim highlights reminiscent of the 1961 Lincoln Continental. Visually, the car was just as successful. The 1964 Imperials had a stylized “tin spare” built into the trunk line, a boxy roofline, and a broad C-pillar. As a result, 1964 sales jumped 65%, to 23,285. The Imperial was divided into the Crown (two- and four-door hardtop, and a convertible) and the Lebaron (four-door hardtop). All Imperials rode on a 129-inch wheelbase and were powered by the 340-hp, 413-cid V-8.
