Pics for the future. Car was originally white (paint code X) with a blue top (223), blue interior (81) and dual headlights (349). Very nice car, despite it's not level, and few little things that could be easily fixed.

Ther's a curious emblem on the hood , i never seen "crown" spelled on it ! I've the original emblem of my car in a box and despite it's a Crown ther's only "Imperial" wroten. I think this emblem comes from a Crown Imperial (limo) and not an Imperial Crown ...

You might probably be 100% right, here is a pic of a 1957 Crown Imperial limousine by Ghia, where one can see the different emblem.

That's a pretty car with the large headlamps, black paint, and limo emblem!

Talk about being a mirror finish, you can see the backside of the emblems in the reflection!!

While the paint and trim is excellent, photoshop lens flar and enhancement has definitely been used.

Very interesting note on the hood emblem. Must be from a limo. What a stunning car

I just can't get used to the single headlamps on these. Ruins the whole car for me.

They are just a bit Fordish, but I really like the look of the singles better than the doubles.
