Man,I sure hope someone saves it. I love the colors on this one. It looks similar to Plymouth’s “meadow green” when it fades. Is this a “spring special” though,like the header says?

Unique placement of the Custom Royal script.  The sedans had the badge on the front fender.  When you add in the Spring Special, I guess the script went up on the fin!

This one was for sale about the same time last year on craigslist for $2000.

Didn’t spring specials also have a special badge on the grille and “sculpted crowns of gleaming chrome” behind the fins? This car doesn’t have either of those.

Spring specials also only came in three colors. Guess this must be “frosted turquoise”

All of those spring special parts were optional. So it is common to see cars with only partial spring special elements on it.

Thanks for the info Powerflite,the ad didn’t say anything about those accents being optional so I naturally assumed they were a part of the Spring Special package. So what did the Spring Special come with as standard and what was optional?
