Imperial 1955-1964
Chrysler had used 'Imperial' as a model name since 1926 but in 1955 it was launched as a new Chrysler brand. The first cars used the Virgil Exner 'Forward Look' styling given to all Chrysler badges that year, although it is said that the Imperial was closely modelled on Exner's own 1952 show car. Imperials had a wheelbase 4-inches longer than other Chrysler models and were given the 5.4-litre Hemi V8 also given to the Chrysler C300.
