Oxford Diecast Imperial Crown 2 Door Hardtop 1959 Persian Pink

Product Code: 87IC59001
10 reviews |
$9.64

The American car giant Chrysler had used the Imperial name from as far back as 1926 to identify their top of the range cars.  It was brought to the fore once more in the 1950s to highlight their new series of luxury vehicles, particularly from 1955 to 1975 and again from 1981 to 1983. The 1959 Imperial Crown is no exception being made during a ‘2nd generation Forward Look’ period when it was all about  big wide cars, extravagant tail fins, lots of chrome and very bright colours .

Designed by Virgil Exner and Elwood Engel, the 2-door hardtop was one of several variants. Sporting a V8 engine and with three speed gearbox, the width of the 1959 model was 81 inches and had a height of 56.9 inches. The key words during the late 1950s and early 1960s were longer, wider and lower!

The  1:87 Imperial Crown from Oxford incorporates all the physical features of the original in a lilac-like Persian Pink with white roof, white interior and white steering wheel. The bumpers, wheels inside the whitewall tyres, grille and trim are all silver. The Crown badges are printed on each side of the bonnet above the headlights, while the Imperial boot badge is embedded in the boss on the rear spare wheel cover. The car is registered in Utah 59  DC 4265.

    Excellent quality!

    On this order I purchased five vehicles the Imperial, 57 Chevrolet Nomad, 65 Mustang, 54 Buick Estate Wagon and a 69 Dodge Charger. All are of excellent quality and great detail. I was most impressed by the taillights on the Imperial as they were a perfect match to the original vehicle.

    ANOTHER CORKER

    Another model received by me in New Zealand on 7 September. Captures the feel of the age of American car oppulence, enhanced by the colour. Pre-arrival expectations fully met.

    Great casting! Detail on this tiny gem is impeccable for its tiny size. Love the white walls.

    Your products are first class. Please continue to market American made autos especially 50's.60's,70's. And please resolve my credit/refund problem with your payment office.

    Excellent product, I have been buying Oxford vehicles for many years.

    My overall experience was perfect. You have the best models for a great price, and I will continue purchasing your models as my model railroad progresses. The purchase itself was painless and accomplished much easier than I thought it would be. As you add more diverse models in 1/87 scale, I will be sending you more orders. Thank you very much. PS. If you would like more ideas for forthcoming vehicles I would be happy to send you some suggestions. Sincerely, Joe Worz The other models also lived up to and surpassed my expectations.

    A high-quality replica

    These Oxford 1:87 American-car models are outstanding in their detail and overall high quality. I have a couple dozen of them and they never disappoint. Most can go straight onto my model railroad right out of the box, while a few need minor touch-up of the silver trim, usually around the headlights. One note on the '59 Imperial: Virtually all of the '59s had a fully chromed rear bumper, without the body-color portion in the center as depicted on the Oxford model. Purists (like me!) may wish to paint the center of the model's bumper silver, a very easy "fix". This nit is nowhere near serious enough to threaten my 5-star rating, though. The proportions and body features are outstanding, better than some other manufacturer's products that are 3 or 4 times the price.
