Place Your Bid on the 1964 Imperial Crown Convertible from ‘Mad Men’
Copyright © 2016 Bold Ride LLC.
You might not be able to take Mad Men‘s Don Draper home (unfortunately), but you will be able to take his car. The 1962 Imperial Crown Convertible driven by Draper in Season 4, Episode 3 is about to go up for auction—and you’d be mad not to want it.There were only 922 examples of this particular car built, and only 200 are believed to still exist. This makes this car not only incredibly rare and collectible from the factory, but even more so with its Hollywood connections.
The car is in great condition with a 413 V8 wedge engine paired to a 727 TorqueFlight push button automatic. It has modern day conveniences of the time like power steering, brakes, windows, and antenna. There’s even a working AM/FM radio and an electric top. It’s mostly original with two exceptions.The carpeting was replaced, and the car was repainted about 20 years ago. The new bright red covers up the original Roman Dark Red, but you can still see what that original color looked like thanks to a small circle purposely left under the hood. The auction is set to run June 1 to June 6 through ScreenBid.
