Curbside Classic featured this beautiful Imperial and did a great piece on the model. More pics after the jump!
Check out this rare Frank Sinatra Edition Imperial found in a scrap yard in the San Francisco Bay area. With only 278 built, you probably have a better chance of seeing a 1969 Charger Daytona! All cars were blue as in ol’ blue eyes blue and each car came with a set of Sinatra cassettes. Find more info at Autoweek. Back in the day brochure after the jump!
Five Virgil Exner designed Imperial Crown convertibles will cross the auction block March 7-8 in Florida at the Hollywood Wheels Amelia Island Select Auction, presented by Hollywood Wheels. 1957 thru 1961 model years are represented.

I already showed you this guy’s review of a Plymouth Superbird. Well this time he takes a close look at a 1963 Chrysler Imperial. That is a lot of steel! There is a reason these things were banned from so many demolition derbies (though that generally applies to the 1964 – 1968 cars)! Video after the jump!
Here it is, the 1965 Chrysler Imperial used in the 2011 Green Hornet movie. According to the seller it is the only Black Beauty that kept its original interior and original 413 engine. It is also the Black Beauty that Jay Leno drove on Jay Leno’s Garage. See a ton more pics plus more details from the eBay auction, plus the Jay Leno video after the jump! Thanks to Darren for the tip!
