Available for auction is this 1967 Imperial Crown Coupe finished in Turbine Bronze Metallic over a Black leather interior. The Imperial name was reserved for Chrysler’s top-tier products until 1954 when the name was used for a separate luxury brand intended to compete with Lincoln and Cadillac. One of approximately 3,200 Crown Coupes produced for the model year, this 1967 example is said to have remained with its original owner until 2015. It features a 440ci “Wedge” V8 paired with a TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission, a vinyl landau roof, air conditioning, power accessories, and more. This Crown Coupe is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Washington.
The 1967 model year saw completely restyled bodywork laid over a new unibody platform. This example comes finished in Turbine Bronze Metallic with a black vinyl landau roof. Equipment includes vertical chrome tailfins, a single-piece taillight, and a distinctive rear “boss” covering the fuel filler cap. It rides on a set of 15″ steel wheels fitted with Imperial-branded turbine covers and whitewall tires. The seller notes that the car was refinished in its original color at some point under previous ownership and remains very well presented apart from a small area where the driver’s fender meets the hood. Detailed images can be found in the gallery.
The cabin features front bucket and rear bench seating upholstered in black leather with matching door panels and carpets. Amenities include walnut wood trim, air conditioning, power windows, mirrors, antenna, “Auto-Pilot” cruise control, and an AM/FM radio with a foot-operated tuning switch. The seller confirms all gauges and accessories remain functional.
Power comes from a Chrysler RB 440ci V8 big block engine shared with the Dodge Charger, Super Bee, and Plymouth Road Runner. The rear wheels are driven by way of a TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission. All Imperials came equipped as standard with power steering and brakes. The seller reports the most recent service included all new belts, hoses, and fluids.
This sale will include a clean title.
