Wheels in the Grass

So here’s the 1962 Imperial Crown I promised you last week. It’s the four-door Southampton, or, as we peons call it, four-door hardtop. Gotta love those freestanding head- and tail-lights! With a starting price of $5,644 the Crown was 13 bucks more than a ’62 Cadillac Sedan DeVille, but $430 cheaper than a new Lincoln.
Chrysler built 6,911 Crown four-doors, many going to Beverly Hills bankers like Milburn Drysdale… or was he driven around in a limo version? Either way, a veddy nice ride, indeed. You can view the entire original brochure here.
