Welcome to Used Car Face Off, where we find two similar or similarly priced used cars and ask you which one you would buy. Choose wisely!
This guy. Really, this guy. He lies so much about the 1965 Imperial, I'm worried for his health. His pants are about to go nuclear. I think it's pathological.
There aren't very many nice things you can say about a 1983 Imperial. It's big, it's heavy, but it's got a V8 and rear wheel drive. Time for a burnout.
The car business is a multi-trillion dollar industry with stiff competition. This leads to some hilariously desperate attempts to draw buyers into the showrooms.
In this vintage Car and Track segment host Bud Lindemann steps away from the test track to preview what was new in the luxury world for 1969. Taking a break from shining the spotlight on supercars, Lindemann takes a look at the roadibility of the "Luxury big three".
Imperials first featured stand alone taillights in 1955 and 1956. Although the taillights were integrated into the fins of the newly designed 57 models, separate taillights made a brief return for the 1961 and 1962 model years. (Photo Credit:bsabarnowl)
The little known Chrysler Metric was 91% the size of the more popular Imperial, no surprise Americans weren't interested in adopting it.
The Down On The Street series has been around for a couple years now, and we've seen a good sampling of big ol' Detroit luxury dreadnaughts down on the Alameda street during that time.
When I was writing shop manuals for transit buses, the only fun illustrations I commissioned were nixed by my boss. That didn't happen with these Chrysler Master Technician pamphlets of the 1940s and 1950s!
These two 60's-era Chryslers were rolling ahead of the Woodward Dream Cruise and parked around the corner from each other at Duggan's Irish Pub, the place where we saw the same company unveil the Chysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 5. The contrast in awesomeness could not be more poignant. The wagony goodness of the New…
Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. We've seen many Cadillacs in this series, and a fair number of Lincolns... but where are the Imperials? So far we've had just this '56 Imperial, and that's not enough!
We like to see a sampling of junkyard wares from around the world, and Slantsick has added to our Rusty Iron Grand Tour by photographing some of the more interesting vehicles at C.I.A. Salvage of Limerick, Maine. Make the jump to see the whole gallery and read Slantsick's list of vehicles.
Cadillacs aplenty in this series, and a few Lincolns, but how about Chrysler's top-of-the-line marque? I'd been seeing this '56 Imperial around town for years, but only recently was I able to capture it holding still for the camera in a downtown parking space. I'm pretty sure it lives on the island, but it's either…
Sometimes the old 413 in the '65 Imperial just won't run right. That's when it's time to buy a case of Pabst Blue Ribbon and invite some of your grimy gearhead henchmen to dive into the Chrysler's innards with you! I shot this circa-1987 image on a keychain camera using 110 film, hence the excessive,…
His Royal Peetness is huzzahing like a madman at Chrysler's decision to do in the Imperial, calling it "the wrong car, at the wrong time, from the wrong car company" and hoping that the decision to cancel the ill-proportioned behemoth may be the sign of common sense beginning to prevail in the hallways of Auburn…
We noted earlier that Chrysler has killed the Imperial. You know, generally, we're for V8, rear drive cars. Success, after all, begets success, so we were thrilled to see the 300, Magnum, Charger and revised Mustang lead to the Challenger, the Interceptor, Camaro and G8, but after the inital "What is that?" shock…
