Awesome Crown, Mustn't be too many left of them in the UK now?

Loving the Green colour too, very refined.

Congrats on your new acquisition! :tu: Love to meet Crown owners and fans. Itching for mine to hit the road again.
Very glad to know you're keeping her all original. You may start off by ditching the awful door mirrors. Keep us posted 8)

Oops Ben....the door mirror isn't original....

Hey ra28GT, I think you'll be in for a surprise when you step on the "full beam knob" on the floor! :o

Beautiful car! Looking forward to her progress...

Haha, I should have known what an ms65 crown mirror looks like. I thought it might have been some wonky UK thing.
