This is a two owner car going to the second owner in 1981 with only 40,000 miles. The second owner put on around 10000 miles and kept the vehicle garaged till we acquired it around 2012. It has the original upholstery and carpet. We had the car painted and slipped on a new set of tires. Grand ole survivor in original condition. This example of the stylistic 1962 Imperial Crown is a 58K mile survivor with one repaint of its Rosewood paint. The chrome is a mile deep on this car and lots of it. It comes with the original owners manual and dealer's warranty booklet. This is a 2 owner since new piece that has been well preserved, stored and maintained by loving owners. All power goodies; windows, seat, antenna, radio, gauges are still functioning. A unique opportunity to acquire a genuine low mileage example of one of the most beautiful boulevard cruisers ever built. Room for the whole family!
