Classic Car Overview

1965 Imperial Crown Convertible I wanna be a billionaire so xxxxx bad Buy all of the things I never had Uh, I wanna be on the cover of Forbes magazine Smiling next to Oprah and the Queen Just like you are rolling through Chappaquiddick with the Kennedys, top down and all high style, this car harkens back to that, (age of innocence NOT!). Although our consignment is a wonderful example of the mid 1960s wretched excess. Id much rather be a have than a have not. Now honey, go get your mink stole. We are going over to the chief of the agencys house for fondue and high balls, and I dont feel like putting the top up. We give you the 1965 Imperial Crown. Exterior Big steel creates the ultra-smooth with well minded gapped side slabs and literally all surfaces of this car, and they are supersized. This large and in charge skate is all bathed in black cherry, but there has been some debate about this color. Lets leave it at you need to see it to appreciate it. Also, our crack decoder will chime in and say and I quote -After extensive viewing I believe the car was originally Spanish Red Metallic (T Code). This color was not available with the Black Plum interior thus creating the Special-Order Paint Code . What I can tell you, is gazing at is mesmerizing and is truly unique and fits the car like a glove, (If the glove doesnt fit...well you get that!). Wonderfully large amounts of chrome adornments all very befitting for its styling are attached throughout, and break up the paint, highlight the grille and rear, and add some class and contrast to the paint. Also, all beautifully shined and preserved. Side view mirrors are mounted to the tops of the front quarters and a slightly curved front glass is pure class. Speaking of class lets go to the continental rear trunk lid with its squared off bump up and out in the middle with I M P E R I A L badging in a semicircular setup. Just below starts the dual spear edged taillights with a winged icon in the center of a round chromed design which mimics the lettering above. Just below is another large pristine chromed bumper. Looking at the side view of this car the front and rear appear to be italicized with their rearward tilt. Yards of gray cloth make up the top and it is nice and tight, with a matching tonneau covering to hide it when its down. Beautifully designed 18-inch wheels have the looks of a fluted greek pedimented portico with arched punch outs adorn all 4 corners. These are wrapped in thin whites all around. Interior Looking from above gives us the best view of the styling genius that comes with this model year. We can see a band of wood appliqu encircling the entire interior. Neatly inserted into this surround are low back wide buckets in front with buttoned backed tuck and roll inserts and smooth black bolsters. White piping delineates the surfaces and highlights the edges of the backs as well. The wide rear bench sports the same pattern and has an iconic speaker within the mid-section of the back of the bench. Door panels bleed richness with the band of wood appliqu, a central black horizontal stitched panel which interacts with the armrest and has an ergonomically angled brushed aluminum panel with 60s looking toggles and an airplane throttle door actuator. The dash front continues with the dual pointed spear genre and utilizes the wood appliqu band running through it. Horizontal design gauges and a clock as well as other power amenities are within this dash. On the dash top, we can see a high beam sentinel, automatically dimming the lights, because after all, pushing that floor button is so pedestrian! A wonderful thin rimmed silver and chrome steering wheel is fronting the dash and it too has that light thin tie 60s mood to it. Floors are covered with black thick pile carpeting, which is like new, and some sportier red striped over black field floor mats protect the thick pile. Pushbutton interior is representative of the space craze and futuristic pills for meals frenzy that was prevalent at this time. A shout out to the trunk which presents better than a showroom which begs the question when can I move in??! Drivetrain Under the showroom finished hood, sits a perfectly restored correct 413ci V8. It is topped with a 4-barrel carburetor under the correct and nicely labeled single snout round air cleaner covering. A near perfect green painted block and valve coverings, and no corrosion for this engine bolt ons and brake cylinder housings. On back is an A727 Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission to which you smooth down the highway, and the rear axle is an 8.75 inch 2.93 Sure Grip axle. Just beautiful looking ultra-smooth endless power. Ill throw caution to the wind when I fill this tank. Undercarriage Like the rest of the car, just beautiful condition. All painted black with some extra undercoating and all structurally sound. Hardly even any road dirt for this X framed queen. Dual exhaust, torsion bar front and leaf spring rear suspension along with power drum brakes on all 4 corners, and Im ready for the magic carpet ride. Drive-Ability I turned the key and the big engine came to life albeit very quietly. A super smooth idle, and off to the test track with neck snapping acceleration, bias free panic stopping and even good handling for a large piece of Detroit iron. There were a few snags in the workability of some of the interior functions, those being the AC blowing warm and the radio had no sound. What a wonderful piece of mid 1960s excess sums it up!
