1961 Imperial Crown 4 door hardtop, king of the road in '61. This car has plenty of potential and is wearing the infamous "Malibu Tan" (pink) paint/interior package. These fine cars were built in limited numbers, as only approximate 7500 units vs say 30,000 equivalent Cadillac's, or 22,000 Lincolns in 1961, Hence: not many of these out there so, here's your opportunity. This car was barn find from an estate sale a few years ago. I am spring cleaning, need the room and simply have no time for this sleek beauty.
Car is basically overall good and straight with exception of repairable nose body damage (about a softball sized dent, see photo). I have a good used grill (see photo) to replace existing damaged unit. The car has some rust but, not a rusty car, basically limited to the following repairable areas: the lower front fenders, lower front door corners, some in lower quarter and trunk pan has some rust damage from condensation, pooling water under its rubber trunk mat over the years but, that area has been carefully cleaned, sanded, rust stabilized and primerd. That majority of trunk area is solid and through spots can now be easily repaired rather than replacing entire floor pan. Again everything else looks basically good and solid including cabin area floors.
Engine (413) runs nice and smooth. Fuel tank will need good cleaning and probably lines. It currently will run and yard drive with aid of fuel can hooked up. Again good running, quiet engine (should get a tune up and fluid change for regular use). Brakes will need gone through. Coolant still green. Transmission seems ok too.
Interior is all there and original. A lot of it could be cleaned up and useable. This car equipped with plenty of options including Auto Pilot and A/C!
I don't have to sell this car and am not giving it away however, price is set VERY reasonable. Remember, this is not a hollow shell of a car, but, a whole complete very original car..Its only about a 3 day weekend and $1200.00 away from being a decent driver. You want the car sooner?, your very own custom talered "Buy it now" figure can be added by YOU as long as your not dreaming, however this is a dreamy car. Please don't send a bunch of $1500.00 offers, we are not living in 1983!
This car will need to be trailer or flat-bedded to its new home or repair facility. Sold as is, where is 50621 IA. PayPal $250.00 within 24 hrs, balance in full with in 5 days please.
