Description

Lot #321.2 - The Royal Coach, this is a one off original 60s custom car that went into the shop new in '58 and came out in '62. The motor has excessive chrome and triple carburetor setup. The interior has Thunderbird bucket seats and beverage area for extra points at car exhibitions. The head lights are set back 1" in 4" extended fenders and the grille is a modified '59 Imperial. The rear fenders are finned 10" and have 800 hand turned buttons added, with 8 cad tail lights and functional roof scoops. The Royal Coach is extremely well known in the custom car world. Its pedigree is impeccable, being originally painted by Larry Watson and upholstery by Joe Perez with body work by Art Lehnerd of Art Chrome Body Shop and being owned by Johnnie Taylor. The Royal Coach has been on many magazine covers, even on one with the Italian Thunderbird. The Royal Coach went on to become the 1963 California custom champion. This car is being sold by the second owner who has owned it for the last 25 years.
