Chrysler introduced the all-new Imperial in 1957. It had more distinctive styling and was available in four series. Sales were strong and soon exceeded those of Lincolns. This was Imperial best ever year in sales at 37,593.

For 1957, the Imperial was built on a wheelbase that was four-inches shorter, though it looked longer and lower. The tail lamps were grafted into the fins rather than placed on top. The interior featured two-tone leather and vinyl. The dash had full instrumentation rather than just warning lights.

This particular example was once owned by the celebrity, Howard Hughes. It was driven for a few years before being put into storage until 1976 when it was purchased by a company from Hughes production.

This car is painted in pastel blue and has chrome and stainless trim. It rides on wide whitewall tires and there is a two-tone, two-spoke steering wheel. The 392.7 cubic-inch overhead valve V8 engine is capable of producing 325 horsepower. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a push-button automatic transmission.

In 2008, this vehicle was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions where it had an estimated value of $200,000 - $300,000. It was sold for a high bid of $162,250 including buyer's premium.
