Has been garaged its whole life
The 1964 Imperial convertibles have always remained an extremely desirable car. This significantly low mileage car painted in white has only had two-owners since new and the second owner possessed the car for 35 years. It is sad to have been garaged its whole life, and remains practically original. Power comes from the popular 413 cubic inch V-8 engine, and a push button automatic transmission is equipped. With being the top-of-the-line Imperial, it has power windows, vent windows, seats, antenna, trunk release; and a signal seeking radio, automatic headlight dimmer, tilt steering and factory air conditioning. The black and white two-tone interior is matched by the steering wheel, carpets and the convertible top.
It is reported that only 539 similar cars where ever manufactured; and this low mileage, two-owner vehicle is one of the best available.
