Here is my 1963 Chrysler Imperial Crown with 413 (6.8 litre) V8. Push-button automatic box with limited slip diff.
The car starts, drives, stops and steers as it should. The push button auto shifts smoothly.
The car is huge and makes a real impact on the road. Other cars leap out of the way!
There is a good amount of original period documentation with the car from 1963 to 1987. The original factory spec / price label ($6487 inc extras) and original service book with correct VIN are present. This shows the car registered new to Mr C G Emery of Willow City, North Dakota on 26 Sept 1962. The original showroom warranty slip and the push button auto instruction card are present. Subsequent. There are automobile registration tickets in Mr Emery's name at an address in Redondo Beach California from 1964 to 1980. After that there are two more in the name of Mr Danial Dissette of Redondo beach for 84 and 87. It seems the cart spent most of its life in California which would explain the sunburn on the top of the rear seat.
The engine bay has been rewired since the rats-nest that the last owner had left was dangerous. This was done professionally at a cost of nearly £1000. At the same time the alternator, voltage control unit, distributor, points, condenser, coil all of which were in a poor state - more £££££s. A new Edelbrock 600cfm carb and filter has also been fitted and set up professionally - lots more ££££s. New alloy radiator - £££££s

In a recent drive down to Exeter on the M5 we were cruising at a genuine 70mph on the Sat nav and the care was very happy and stable.The speedo works as well.
