1964 Chrysler Imperial $26,495

Cadillac, MI
1964 Chrysler Imperial Crown Coupe. Chrysler produced just 23,295 Imperial Crown Hardtops. Powered by 413 CDI 4V V-8 motor with 340HP. 129 wheelbase. The new model introductions in the fall of 1963 must have confused people. Ford s Thunderbird was all new, but its styling was somehow strangely familiar. It was more squared off than its predecessor; very much reminiscent in some respects of the 1958-1960 models. Cadillac had done an about-face for 1963, lost the somewhat fussy styling it had displayed in 1961-1962, and its 1964 models were a nice face-lift on its refreshing 1963 styling. Even Lincoln made styling changes for 1964. They were limited to new grille and deck lid trim, a squared-off roofline, flat side glass, a linear instrument panel, and more rear seat and luggage compartment room. And then there was Imperial or was it a Lincoln? It looked more like a Lincoln than an Imperial. No doubt more than one observer did a double-take upon observing the 1964 Imperials for the first time! They didn t appear very Imperial, not that Imperial really had a specific look to base that opinion on. But they surely didn t look anything like the 1961-1963 models. There is a reason for the resemblance between the Lincoln and the Imperial. Chrysler hired designer Elwood Engel from Ford in 1961, and he immediately saw to it that the Imperial of 1964 would bear little resemblance to previous models. Sales shot up 65% for Imperial in 1964, so the public surely liked what they saw. And what wasn t to like? The front fender tips and rear quarter panel ends on the Imperial had an angular taper to them when viewed from the side, the lines were very clean and there wasn t any sign of free standing headlamps or taillights mounted on pods. The square roofline was all the rage in 1964, and from behind there was more than a casual resemblance to the deck lid kick up that was such an identifying feature for the Continental Mark II.
