Here is a message from Holland.

I want you to show my Chrysler Imperial Crown from ' 65.  The outside of the car is perfect, the inside is a disaster.  I'll hope to fix it in this year.

As I was driving the moving van, the task of driving the Imperial went to my brother.

It was great to be able to watch the car on the road from another driver's perspective and to be able to see other people's reaction to this massive, luxury cruiser sailing by. Since returning home with the car I have had to do very little to bring it back to its original splendor. First, a thorough cleaning and polishing, then I began working on the little things....a power window motor that was stuck, etc....

After being home with the car for about 3 weeks I took it to a local car show and to my surprise I came home with a first place in the C-Body class!

Admittedly this was a smaller local show but my Imperial was up against some very nice competition. What a confidence builder!

Since then I continue to work on the car as my budget and time allow and I show it when I can. My father even comes to the shows and gets a kick out of telling people the history of the car (There IS hope! I may convert him yet!)

I would never be able to have and enjoy this fine example of American automotive history if it hadn't been for the "little old lady" that originally purchased it and maintained it with such love and care, and for that I can only say "thank you" by continuing to give it the same care and attention.

If anyone has a question about my car please feel free to write. I LOVE to talk about it and will answer all!

P.S. While cleaning up in her home I also was fortunate to find a dealer's promo model of this car, correct down the color! I assume that it was given to her when she purchased the car!
