1959 Chrysler Imperial

Now that the weather is improving here, more classics are waking up from their winter slumber and seeing the sunlight once again. This is one of my favorite local cars – restored, with the original 413 Wedgehead engine, and factory-optional FliteSweep deck lid and Silvercrest stainless steep top. The ’59s have Virgil Exner’s “Forward Look” styling (as do all Mopars of the late 50s), along with wonderful gun-sight taillights mounted on the sweeping fins, giving it a bit of mid-century modern flair.  Hopefully I will have more opportunities to photograph it again soon.
