In 1955, Imperial became a stand-alone division of the Chrysler Corporation when a separate Imperial-exclusive assembly line was established. Imperial was chasing Cadillac, the top United States luxury brand. The Imperial advertising tagline was 'America's Most Carefully Built Car.'

While Cadillac and Lincoln were carrying over their styling themes in 1960, Imperial substantially restyled the entire car continuing the 'Forward Look' styling theme which begun in 1957. Also, 1960 was the year that the rest of the Chrysler lineup went to a unibody structure while Imperial retained the traditional body-on-frame design.

Under the hood is a 350 horsepower, 413 cubic-inch 'Wedge Head' V8 engine mated to a Torque-Flite, push-button actuated transmission. Ahead of its time as well is the 'Panelescent' electroluminescent instrument lighting. This was also the beginning of 'Auto-Pilot' cruise control. Only 618 Crown Convertibles were built for the 1960 model year.

This Imperial Crown Convertible was built and shipped on December 23rd of 1959 to Community Motors of East Milton, Massachusetts. The current owner purchased the car in August of 2002 after it had been disassembled and relegated to a storage container for 10 years. Owner restored, it took 8 years and about 3,200 hours to bring it back to this condition. It has won numerous AACA awards including the Bomgardner Award for the most outstanding restoration in the Southeast Division.
