1962 Chrysler Imperial
Car for sale by Specialty Sales Classics in Fairfield, California 94533
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

The next classic in our Fairfield showroom is this very impressive 1962 Chrysler Imperial Crown 2 Door Convertible with Oyster White exterior paint and a two-tone black/white vinyl interior. You’ll find the factory correct 413 cid V-8 engine under the hood with the matching Torqueflite automatic transmission and this highly-optioned example also includes air conditioning, power steering and power brakes with a brand new black power convertible top, the factory owner’s manual and the original spare tire. This is a stunning classic and is only one of 554 total examples ever built- you’ll certainly want to see it in person as soon as possible.
Highly Original & One of Only 554 Examples Ever Produced
This 1962 Chrysler Imperial Crown Convertible remained with the original owner for most of its life and it was passed to his son in the early 2000’s. The current owner purchased it back in 2008 and he informs us that he has extensive documentation dating back to when it first sold in Sacramento, California. The factory-correct 413 V-8 engine with 340 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque is still in place as well, along with the matching automatic transmission and most of the factory accessories.
The motor of this 1962 Chrysler Imperial Crown Convertible is a healthy and stout runner. The current owner has refurbished the power top mechanisms and has replaced the top itself. The only other modification is the updated upholstery (changed from brown to white/black two tone). The rest of this stunningly rare classic has been unmolested and, aside from a couple things here and there, is a true survivor.
Additionally, this ultra-rare 1962 Chrysler Imperial Crown Convertible shows very nicely in person with only slight levels of wear. The body lines are sensational with above average chrome and nice exterior paint. You’ll also fall in love with the spectacular interior and engine compartment- this is easily one of premiere survivors in the country today and it performs at a very high level. It needs nothing to be driven and enjoyed right away.
One of the Premiere Examples to be Found Nationwide
Overall, this 1962 Chrysler Imperial Crown Roadster is a highly desirable, investment grade classic with excellent provenance dating back to the day it was new. This rare collectible belongs in a premiere collection since it has nowhere to go in value but straight up over time. Do not let it slip away!
