    2 doors are very rare and the condition appears to be great as well although I'm not an expert on these forward cars. But my guess is that the interior might still be factory. The upholstery shows some wear that matches the age and mileage.

    Well its a "Crown" model, a few options are Twilight Mirror and Dimming high beams etc. Now his numbers may be correct for a "Crown" but my Imp is a "Custom" with more options than his.

    I know you're fishing for compliments but I'll fall for it like I do every time you post a picture of your car.... One of the most beautiful cars I've ever seen :D And I like that color combo better than red & white :D

    I've got a '60 Crown Coupe (I had two others) and they were basically void of a lot of options! There are Customs that have more options than the Le Baron's. That '59 is a very nice looking ride!

    the car was at the auction in may earlier this year and didn´t sell obviously. So I guess the reserve is set
    quite high
