This is the AMT 63 Crown Imperial with a 413 Hemi. I used Dupli-color Inferno Red metallic with a white and black interior. Added some plumbing and wires. Enjoy comments always welcome . Thanks

Beautiful!!! Right up my alley!! Gorgeous color.........the Inferno red is pretty darn close to '63 Claret metallic. Only thing I must knitpick is the fact that a 413 is a bigblock wedge, not a Hemi. The 413 was the standard engine in the '63 Imperial line.

It looks great. But i'm just going to throw this out there it'd look even better with some headers coming out of the hood,some mud tires,and welded up doors lol. But no you really did a good job on this.

That's a great build of a long time favorite of mine! Your color selection is right on.

Just a little educational footnote - not taking anything away from the build - that's actually an Imperial Crown and the Crown Imperial was a very different car. I can't imagine how that could be confusing! :wacko: Crown Imperials were stretch limos that Chrysler had made in Italy by Ghia to be the "ultimate limousine" in their words. Here's a 1963 Crown Imperial:
