    “In every respect, it is unquestionably the finest car we have ever created,” as stated by the Chrysler Corporation in introducing the 1956 Imperial. 1956 was the second year for Imperial as a separate marque. This Imperial was built October 18, 1955 at the Jefferson Avenue assembly plant in Detroit. As expected, this Imperial is lavishly equipped and includes:

    Green Eagle pattern nylon fabric inserts with leather bolsters
    Factory air conditioning
    Solex glass
    Powerflite automatic transmission
    354 cubic-inch Hemi V-8
    Full time power steering and brakes
    Power seat and windows

    This car has undergone a thorough recent restoration to include:

    A Mint Green over Cloud White refinish done with two-stage paint
    All brightwork rechromed and polished
    New correct Eagle fabric seat inserts
    New correct BF Goodrich wide whitewall tires
    Complete engine rebuild
    All new brakes including treadle vac power booster, wheel cylinders, brake lines and linings

    This Imperial, long a resident of California, was driven to Scottsdale for this auction. This Imperial is a wonderful representation of Virgil Exner’s “Hundred Million Dollar Look” styling theme and stands as one of the finest examples of mid-century American industrial art.
