Walter P. Chrysler formed Chrysler Corporation in 1924, nd the fledgling company quickly matured into one of America’s top three automakers. The Chrysler lineup expanded quickly during the 1920s, eginning with the addition of the Imperial line from 1927–1928, hich provided a top-level model to compete head-on with Cadillac and Lincoln.
In early-1955, hrysler Corporation officially registered Imperial as a separate marque, urther giving the moniker its own distinct identity in the marketplace. For 1957, he Imperial models were radically redesigned, arking both a Virgil Exner design masterpiece and an unqualified market success that quickly gained acclaim for its bold styling, emarkable performance, nd excellent handling.
For 1960, hile the rest of the Chrysler Corporation switched to unitized bodies, he completely restyled Imperial models retained their separate body-on-frame construction with a stiff, einforced, nd undercoated body utilizing heavier-gauge sheet metal. While the large tailfins remained, hey now terminated with a pronounced forward tilt, rawing the eye from the rear of the car to a revised frontal treatment with hooded headlamps, finer mesh-type grille, nd a new V-shaped bumper.
Interiors were upgraded with a heavily padded and supportive “High Tower” driver’s seat, s well as a futuristic, pace-saving elliptical steering wheel. Mechanically, he 413-cubic inch Wedge V-8 engine supplied 350 horsepower and 470 foot-pounds of torque, ated to a smooth and durable Torqueflite automatic transmission with dash-mounted pushbutton controls. The aircraft-inspired instrument panel was dominated by a pair of large pod-shaped nacelles, lluminated by an advanced electroluminescent lighting system developed by Sylvania for the Chrysler Corporation.
As before, he 1960 Imperial earned many positive reviews, ncluding that of Motor Life, hich stated, It handled and rode better than anything else of its size on the road. For all its mass, t feels like a light car, ith the Torqueflite transmission, ower steering, nd power brakes doing everything they can to eliminate labor from driving. Compared to last year's Imperial, he 1960 is quieter, ore comfortable, nd even easier on the eye.” In particular, he Imperial Crown Convertible epitomized the glamour and progressive spirit of the era. Weighing nearly 5,000 pounds and priced from $5,774, ust 618 of these majestic cars were originally built, ith each survivor being highly coveted today.
