Convertible
Designer: Exner
In an effort to establish itself as a legitimate contender in the luxury class, Imperial became a stand-alone division of the Chrysler Corporation in 1955. For 1957, Imperial received an all-new exclusive platform. The 1957 through 1961 Imperials represent the epitome of Virgil Exner's 'Forward Look-styling. Any Imperial convertible from this era is a rare sight, as annual production angled from a high of only 1,167 (1957) to a mere 429 (1961). Tailfins went from large to larger, with the 1961 being the last Imperial to display this feature. Up front, the headlamp arrangement morphed from the industry's first quad lights (1957) to controversial free-standing units (1961). A signature Exner feature was the optional simulated spare tire cover, 'Flite-Sweep Decklid.' In '57 and '58, the Imperial was powered by a 392 cubic-inch 'Hemi' VB. Beginning in 1958, it received the new 413 cubic-inch 'wedge' V8.
