1960 CHRYSLER IMPERIAL FOUR DOOR SEDAN
link: OLDTIMER MEETING BADEN-BADEN 2005 1960 Imperial vin # 9204113778 in Moonstone Blue with spoke wheels, unique pictures of the Exner forward look the unique 60 "Exner" Forward Look : move ...motion ...emotion. When I bought this car in 1990 I wanted to have just this : a great Exner car.

This car was assembled in Switzerland for the Government of Libanon. The original title shows the first Year as 1961. The car survived all horrible wars in this country. 1988 it came to Germany. Then it was restored during ten years by myself. Today under the original and well maintained body every part is new. The color is Moonstone blue and fits perfect to the chrom . Please read, what is written in Wikipedia

The 1960 Imperial is in many ways the most emblematic and iconic Imperial ever made. The 1960 look featured a very "1950s" front fascia with a swooping front bumper, gaping mesh grille, giant chrome eagle, and hooded quad headlights, and tall rear fins. Some models had the fake spare tire bulge on the trunklid. Its fins were wider, bigger than anything ever made, with the exception maybe of the 1959 Cadillac. These fins had bullet style tail lamps at the peak of the fin, with a halo of a chrome ring surrounding it. The grill and bumper on the front of the 1960 used large pieces of heavy chrome, and the 'furrowed brows' of the fenders over the double sets of headlights gave the car an enormously ponderous look. The push-button transmission and elaborate use of chrome on the dash also made this car stand out. It has often been said that you either quite hated the 1960 Imperial, or you fell in love with it.

The 1960 year has been portrayed in several notable movies: in Blade Runner, the 1960 Imperial can be seen on several occasions driving with a mix of exotic, old and post-apocalyptic contraptions on the road. In the movie Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, the 1960 Imperial is prominently displayed, being driven by the character Count Olaf. He abandons the children in the movie on railroad tracks, locked inside the 1960 Imperial. A black 1960 Imperial Crown (Limousine) was used to transport Jacqueline Kennedy during the funeral proceedings of John F. Kennedy.

Out of my experience, 1960 Imperial is much more sophisticated and complicated than Cadillac or Lincoln of those days. As to the restoration most parts are unique and not interchangable with other Chrysler cars. As to the Imperial registry only 13 four doors of 1500 ever made are registered today.
