1957 Chrysler Imperial Crown SedanThis 1957 Imperial was originally sold, and spent most of her life, in California. The car has only been in Texas for a few years and has always been garage stored. It runs and drives very well, and the brakes bring this big body to a stop nicely. The car has little to no rust and the wheels and tires are in good shape. I have the matching spare tire along with both original bumper jacks. Also includes original owners manual and sales floor visor advertisement, along with under the dash Kleenex holder. All the gauges work, power windows and seats all work as well. Delivery options available, ask me for details.
1957 was the first year of the 392 Hemi, as well as a complete redesign of The Imperial line of vehicles. Famed car designer, Virgil Exner, was brought on board at Chrysler to head up the design of the '57 Imperials.
The 1957 model year was based to an even greater degree on Virgil Exner's "Forward Look" styling It featured a complicated front end (similar to Cadillacs of the period) with a bulleted grille and quad headlights, tall tailfins, and Imperial's trademark gunsight taillights. For the first time on an American car curved side glass was used. The Hemi engine was available for the first two years that was enlarged to 392cuin (6.4L). Power seats and dual exhaust were made standard across the line. Sales were helped by Exner's "ahead of the competition" styling, with 1957 becoming the best-selling Imperial model year ever.
