1962 Imperial Crown Convertible

[ translate ]

Chassis No. 9223172452

Aiming to establish a distinct line of luxury vehicles, the Chrysler Corporation would unveil their new Imperial in 1955 with a new “Forward Look” design aesthetic popularized by Virgil Exner featuring tall tailfins and radical “gunsight” taillights. Powered by a 340-horsepower V8, these automotive sculptures included standard features such as power steering, seats, brakes, and windows in addition to an optional $480 Crown trim line with a fully hand-stitched leather interior. While 14,337 Imperials were manufactured in 1962, only 554 of these were the highly desirable Crown Convertible model, the final model year to feature the free-standing “gunsight” taillights and first model year to feature the “round eagle” hood ornament.

Finished in striking Embassy Red paint, this 1962 Chrysler Imperial Crown Convertible benefits from an older restoration completed under previous ownership. It is equipped with fifteen-inch wheels with chrome covers and whitewall tires, chrome bumpers, side mirrors, grille, side moldings, and window surrounds further accenting the beautiful exterior design. Furthermore, it is appointed with many luxurious features such as factory air condition, six-way power adjustable seats, a power-retractable top, remote driver-side mirror, and a push-button AM radio to complement the Beige interior along with an elliptical steering wheel and Analog clock.

Offered from a well-regarded Texas collection, the consignor reports that new tires were mounted, and all of the fluids were changed in addition to minor cosmetic repairs in April, 2023. This example perfectly encapsulates American automotive opulence of the 1960s and remains as one of the most luxurious road-going machines of its era.
