Chrysler - Crown Imperial Limo - 1948

Unique Limousine with a 5.4 litre 8 cylinder in-line engine and manual transmission
This presidential Limosine features all imaginable luxury.
Entirely without rust (originally from Minnesota) but it has spent the last few years in a barn in Arizona.
Is largely still in its first paint and the interior still looks quite neat and original.
Of course, everything is old and delicate (but is still very representative in its entirety)
The underside is nice and dry and without rust.
The wide whitewall tyres are like new (but they are old and have probably never been driven).
The engine doesn’t run, is loose! (but will have to be overhauled due to the long standstill).
It seems that there are cooling problems.
The braking system will also need attention.
Windows are hydraulic (we haven't tested that system either) because the engine isn't running.

In short, a nice project for a restoration (without welding) and an engine overhaul or a Chevy v8 swap.

All import duties and VAT have been paid.

We can help you with transport throughout Europe

The car can be viewed and picked up in Damwald, the Netherlands
