A 1966 Imperial Crown by Chrysler joins Hoovies Garage as an alternative to the costly Lincolns of the era

The 1960s were a golden age for American luxury cars. Nothing said success like a huge opulent vehicle in your driveway, and it’s this demand for ever more prestigious models that resulted in some very special cars. The Imperial Crown Convertible by Chrysler is one such car, however, it has almost been forgotten.

Today, Lincoln and Cadillac’s flagship models are true collectors items that command top dollar prices, however, that’s not the case for Chrysler’s Imperial Crown. YouTuber Hoovies Garage has recently added one to his incredibly diverse fleet, and claims it to be the greatest luxury car of 1966.

Not badged as a Chrysler in a bid to conjure a more premium image, the Imperial marque was to take on the upper echelon of automotive luxury. The Crown Convertible’s own handbook describes it as ‘Your private island’ and goes on to say ‘each minute behind the wheel erases tensions of mind and muscle.’

Tyler Hoover admits to actually owning an Imperial Coupe before, but reluctantly had to sell it. This time he has gone for a convertible, said to be one of only around 500 made.

Short road trip of my 1996 Imperial driving from St. Clair Shores, MI to Oregon, OH for a drive-in movie/ car show. Scenes of Detroit and Toledo alone the way.

$22,000 bought the 1966 example which is largely original. Plentiful chrome features detail this car, with a contrasting pinstripe running its length to complete the classy look. A neat touch is the gold pin striping within the sealed headlights.

These cars were built in a climate controlled facility with quality being at the forefront of its design. The wood in the dashboard is real 100 year-old walnut, its leather seats were made supple with whale oil, it has power everything, and there are ashtrays aplenty. This level of luxury is still impressive today, let alone in 1966.

Its 440 Ci motor with 350-horsepower is still plenty capable of moving this land-yacht down the road at a good pace. This performance was quickly sapped in following years due to strict emissions regulations.

Short of an oil leak, this Imperial Crown Convertible looks like a great purchase.

The Salvage Title Mustang That Was Thought To Be A Shelby.
This 1966 Fastback was originally thought to be a true GT350 yet recent developments suggest otherwise. Originally thought to be a true Shelby GT350, this 1966 Mustang has recently been discovered to be a clone, albeit a pretty good one. Initial photos show a car that’s met an untimely demise, but look further and you’ll see some rather upsetting damage. If you’re anxious around twisted classic metal, we suggest you don’t look any further, but here’s the eBay listing in case you’re interested. Regardless of the cars true identity, it’s always sad to see someones pride and joy end up in this state.
