A UNIQUE AND RARE CLASSIC CAR ON SALE BY OWNER.
ONLY 514 OF THIS BEAUTY EVER MADE!
This 1966 Chrysler Imperial Crown convertible competed with the world’s best luxury cars. Atop one page in the 1966 Imperial brochure, someone penned the words, “more standard luxuries than a Rolls-Royce.” And the copywriter meant it.
This stunning 1966 Chrysler Imperial Crown is super clean runs and drives well and turns heads everywhere it goes. Under the hood of this land yacht is an original 440. What makes these big land yachts so unique for this year is its big chrome front grill instead of the split grill. Then the headlights where pushed back into the grill and covered in glass and lined with gold to give the car its classic look. These beautiful Chryslers really were built for comfort and luxury to compete with the other high-end vehicle of its time. Wow your friends. Don Draper would have upgraded to the 1966 Crown!
