Condition & Features

Vehicle to be offered WITHOUT RESERVE and SOLD to the highest bidder August 18 – 20th, at Russo and Steele\’s 11th Annual \”Sports & Muscle at The Marriott\” in Downtown Monterey, California. Please contact us for more information. Imperial was the Chrysler Corporation\’s luxury automobile brand between 1955 and 1975, with a brief reappearance in 1981 to 1983. The Imperial name had been used since 1926, but was never a separate make, just the top-of-the-line Chrysler. In 1955, the company decided to spin it off as its own make and division to better compete with its rivals, Lincoln and Cadillac. Imperial would see new body styles introduced every two to three years, all with V8 engines and automatic transmissions, as well as technologies that would filter down to Chrysler corporation\’s other models. Starting from 1957, Imperials were available in three levels of trim: standard Imperial (also known as Imperial Custom), Imperial Crown, and the new, super-luxury Imperial LeBaron (the latter named after a coachbuilder, bought out by Chrysler, that did some of the best work on prewar Chrysler Imperial chassis, and not to be confused with the later, cheaper Chrysler Le Baron). Through the late 1950s and into the early 1960s styling would continue to become \”Longer, Lower, Wider\”, with the addition of some of the wildest fins ever put on a car. The \”FliteSweep Deck Lid\”, a fake continental tire bulge, was an option from 1957 through 1961 and again in 1963 (due to demand). It was shared with contemporary Mopars, even the Valiant. Exner\’s love of this particular feature extended back to early-fifties concept cars like the 1953 Chrysler D\’Elegance. 1958 Imperial Crown convertible styling changes in 1958 were limited to the front grille and bumper. Quad headlights became standard. The 1958 Imperial is credited with the introduction of cruise control, which was called \”Auto-Pilot\”, and was available on the Imperial, and on Chrysler New Yorker and Windsor mo
