We recently saw this beauty for sale on the web. Here's what the owner had to say about it.

The Chrysler Imperial, introduced in 1926, was the company's top of the line vehicle for much of its history. Models were produced with the Chrysler name until 1954, and again from 1990 to 1993. In 1926, Walter P. Chrysler decided to compete with Cadillac and Lincoln in the luxury car field. Chrysler offered a variety of body styles: a four-passenger roadster, a four-seat coupé on a 120 in wheelbase, five-passenger sedan, and a seven-passenger top-of-the-line limousine. The car set a transcontinental speed record in the year it was introduced, driving more than 6,500 miles in the week. The car was chosen as the pace car for the 1926 Indianapolis 500. The Chrysler Imperial was redesigned in 1931. The car received a new engine, a 6.3 L Straight 8. Marketing materials for this generation of Imperial referred to the car as the "Imperial 8", in reference to the new engine. The engine would not be found in other Chrysler vehicles. The redesign also saw the introduction of new wire wheels that became the standard wheel treatment until the 1940s. Stock car driver Harry Hartz set numerous speed records with an Imperial sedan at Daytona Beach, Florida. The Chrysler Imperial is one of the most sought after and valuable Full Classics, their rakish lines among the most beautiful and graceful cars of the Classic Era.
