For a convertible, without knowing
anything other than seeing pictures and assuming that is is solid mechanically
$16,000 is cheap. Being so rare, many viewers wouldn't know that anything was
wrong. That may appeal to some but I wouldn't be seen in it. If I felt the need
to buy it, I would remove the 1960 parts and turn it back into a '63. Depending
on the cost of a good nose, it might be worth doing.

Besides these points the car looks good. I know everyone tries to get them
as original as possible. But, that being said and agreed; If someone liked the
car as is what is it worth!?

60, 63 Imperial Listing
This car has been discussed on the forum previously. Check the
archives. Re. the interior, the dash is correct for ‘63. The
rear seat is from a ‘63 ‘vert in close to the correct pattern (missing the
buttons) but redone in vinyl. The front swivel seats appear to be
1960 seats in red vinyl but not redone in either the correct 1960 pattern or the
correct 1963 pattern. The door panels are close to the 1963 Crown pattern
(again, missing the buttons, and the lower section should be carpeted not vinyl)
but they should not be screwed on around the bottom. This is likely due to
reuse of the old door panel cardboard with missing or torn out door clips.
The carpeting has been replaced with short nap cut pile, a reasonable modern
replacement for the original “twisted loop” but not technically 100%

What are everyone's comments on the "Professional Interior". I
don't seem to recall the door panels being screwed on? How close to
correct is the interior? He seems to insinuate the Imperial Club
holds this car near & dear to its
heart.....Fact...or.....Fiction. I have observed this listed several
times, I thought it had sold a couple of times but it just keeps coming
back. Possibly Buddy Bidders to bump the price up and they
failed in their endever? What do you regulars think is a fair price
for this car?
Thanks for your time and comments!
