Sedan
Designer: Exner
In an effort to establish itself as a legitimate contender in the Cadillac class, Imperial became a stand-alone division of the Chrysler Corporation in 1955. The all-new 1957 Imperial was the epitome of Virgil Exner's 'Forward Look' Styling and was built on its own exclusive platform.

Some of the more outrageous styling cues included gun sight tail lamps and a simulated spare tire cover on the trunk lid. Curved side glass was an industry first. Quad headlamps were also introduced, but single lamps remained available for states that had not yet legalized the four-lamp system.

The Imperial lineup consisted of the standard model, the mid-level Crown, and the top-of-the-line LeBaron. All were powered by a 325 horsepower, 392 cubic-inch Hemi V8, with pushbutton Torque-Flite transmission with 'Torsion-Aire' suspension and 'Total Contact' brakes, the mighty Imperial was widely regarded as the best road car in the luxury class.

This 1957 Imperial Crown is an excellent preservation of an unrestored car. The current owners acquired this Sunset Rose beauty 20 years ago, when it had less than 10,000 miles clocked. It features the seldom-seen 'single' headlamp configuration.
