This is a rare example of the “Top of the line” Chrysler product for 1961. Complete with the fins which were considered essential on luxury cars of the period end the free standing headlights ┬ábeloved by designer Virgil Exner, the 1961 Imperial certainly stood out in any crowd and is much sought after today by collectors, not only of MOPAR products but also by those who collect 1960 icons from the halcyon days of the early JFK periods.
