'Here is a car for the real-life Don Drapers of the Mad Men era; a vehicle of Martini-quaffing sophistication from Detroit's last great golden age, when it still had the confidence to create unashamedly massive saloons with refined powertrains and imaginative world-class luxury features.' – Classic & Sports Car, November 2015.

As if building an 18½ft-long, two-door, pillar-less coupé powered by a 7.2-litre V8 engine wasn't enough, Chrysler's marketing department though it would be a good idea to offer its 'Mobile Director' package on the already way-over-the-top Imperial Crown. Priced at a little under $600, (around 10% of the cost of the car), 'Mobile Director' consisted of a rotating front passenger seat, a foldout table, and a high-intensity reading lamp which, when deployed, converted the interior into an on-the-road office.

This in addition to the already generous standard specification, to which this particular car adds air conditioning, a Tilt-A-Scope adjustable steering wheel, and automatic headlight dipping. 'Mobile Director' was offered only in 1967 and '68, it being estimated that 182 were sold in the first year and anywhere between 10 and 55 in the second, making this ultimate version of the Imperial Crown one of the rarest of post-war American luxury automobiles. Total Imperial Crown production for 1967 and '68 amounted to 26,159 cars.


The example offered here was sold new to its first owner in Minneapolis, Minnesota, subsequently passing into the long-term ownership of collector Chandler Smith in Texas, from whom it was purchased by the current vendor in 2014. The following year, this Imperial Crown featured in Classic & Sports Car magazine (November issue) a copy of which is on file.

Issued by Hammons Garage of Forth Worth, Texas, there are numerous invoices on file relating to the car's time with Chandler Smith. Dating from 2010 onwards, they include charges for fitting a new brake master cylinder; rebuilds of the starter motor, carburettor, and radio; refitting the re-cored radiator; and replacing the rear suspension leaf springs, the latter being done for the current vendor. Additional documentation consists of the old Texas title deed, UK importation paperwork, a V5C Registration certificate, current MoT, and the factory build sheet.

The car also comes with an owner's handbook. A wonderful opportunity to own 'The American Dream' on wheels.
