Convertible
Designer: Exner
A Crowning Achievement in the Luxury Class
Established as a stand-alone division in 1955, Imperial was at the very top of Chrysler Corporation's line. The all-new Imperial was the star of designer Virgil Exner's high-flying 'Forward Look' cars, and it was totally unique.

The curved side glass was a noteworthy industry first. Other highlights include the simulated 'continental kit' imprint on the rear deck and the 'gun-sight' rear taillights. Quad headlamps were a new feature; dual headlamps were a 'delete' option specifically for U.S. states that were late in approving the new light arrangement.

The Imperial's 392 cubic-inch Hemi V8 was rated at 325 horsepower. With its impressive TorqueFlite three-speed automatic transmission and a new torsion-bar front suspension, the Hemi-powered Imperial from Chrysler was the performance leader in the luxury class.

Imperial production reached a record 35,734 cars fo model year 1957, outpacing rival Lincoln for the first and only time. The exclusive $5,598 Crown Convertible found just 1,157 lucky buyers in 1957.
