Convertible
Designer: Exner
'America's most carefully built car.' 'Are you too conservative for this?' teased a 1960 Imperial Crown Convertible ad. 'Of course you're not. Even though it's young and possibly a little rakish, you've noticed how beautifully the Crown Convertible seasons its dash with dignity.' Imperial was the ultimate expression of Virgil Exner's 'Forward Look,' featuring upswept fins with 'gunsight' taillights at the top and a stylized 'Flite Sweep' deck lid that recalled the classic-era 'Continental kit' spare tire.

The 350 horsepower, 413 cubic-inch wedge-headed V8 offered 'greater effective torque than any other passenger car engine in the world,' boasted an Imperial ad. Inside, the Crown Convertible displayed a lavish leather interior and novel 'Panelescent' instrument-panel illumination.

This Crown Convertible, in a fashionable shade of Dawn Mauve, is one of only 618 produced. Original list price was $5,474. Options include air conditioning, power windows, automatic headlamp dimmer and 'AutoPilot' cruise control.
