This 1960 Imperial Crown Sedan has led a charmed life. Its first owner, Ruth Lee Medlock, owned it for over forty years, the last thirty of them in storage with just over 30,000 miles on the odometer. It was discovered in the early 2000's by an Imperial fanatic and upon acquiring it began a six year nut-and-bolt restoration to fabulously meticulous standards. In its first Concours it won Best of Show, then captured a AACA National First Prize followed by its Senior National First Prize at the most demanding of all AACA Shows, Hershey. Most recently it was awarded a class First Prize at the Meadow Brook Concours d'Elegance in 2010. Its workmanship, materials and condition are superlative. The body lines, panel fits and paint are beyond perfect, as is the chrome, dash, instruments, knobs and stainless including the two brushed inserts above the doors. The Airtemp dual air conditioning system in the trunk is like new. Details are consistent with the caliber of the restoration including the jack, instructions, tags and even an Imperial key fob and keys. The dashboard, instruments, knobs and switches, an elaborate assemblage of finely detailed discrete elements, is by itself a masterpiece. It is discretely and appropriately finished in dignified black with grey leather upholstery with matching cloth seating surface inserts and maroon carpets. In addition to dual air conditioning its equipment includes a 6-way power front seat, power steering, power brakes, tinted glass, dual outside mirrors, electric locks, pushbutton radio, and Auto Pilot cruise control. Today it displays less than 35,000 miles which based upon its history is probably all it has covered from new. Well under a thousand miles have been accumulated since the restoration. It is impossible to overstate the quality of this 1960 Imperial Crown's restoration and presentation.
