Default My latest purchase

Here is my 1963 Imperial Crown Southampton. It is VERY well equipped. It has all the usual options plus Cruise Control, Power Vents, Power Seat, Power Antenna, A/C, Rear Defrost Automatic Headlight Dimmer, Power Door Locks and my favorite, the square steering wheel and pushbutton transmission (which were standard equipment)!

I think that it sleeps 8 comfortably!

Sleeps 8? LOL. Everyday I see/learn something new that proves either I'm old or very young. In this case, Imperial Crown Hampton? NEVER heard of it.

Looks fun, from what I can see.

Guess I was hoping for bigger pics, and more of them.

Not Hampton but Southampton. All it means is that there is no B pillar.

It is a fun car.

I don't own a camera, so I have to rely on the pictures people send me. I was hoping for bigger pictures too.

very nice car i love the square steering wheels they put in those, i believe that was to make it more comfortable to get into for heavier people if i remember right

Almost old enough to know better and still be able to drink the younger cellphone baby boomers under the table.
