Imperial production was never large, but the separate marque more than paid for itself by the prestige it brought Chrysler and the bargaining power it gave Chrysler dealers in competing with Cadillac and Lincoln.
Offered in a full array of body styles Imperials were loaded with power assists and accessories and distinguished in 1959 by their free-standing headlight pods and gunsight taillights.The Crown series included a six-way power seat, power windows, vanity mirror and license plate frame as standard equipment.
This 1959 Imperial Crown four-door hardtop sedan is attractively finished in Copper Spice with a luxurious Cream leather interior. It is powered by the big 413 cubic inch wedge head V-8 engine rated at 350hp driving through Chrysler's high-regarded automatic transmission and lavishly equipped with a full complement of comfort and convenience features.
Its distinctively colored exterior paint and interior have been redone to high standards and it has been fitted with FrigiKing air conditioning, chrome wire wheels and whitewall tires. Only 4,714 were built in this attractive four-door hardtop body style.
Rare, powerful and attractive, the Imperial line justly maintained Chrysler's reputation for quality, engineering, comfort and performance and this Imperial Crown continues to reflect those attributes in a car that is even more rare and distinctive today than it was 54 years ago when it was built.
