CHRYSLER IMPERIAL 80

Roadster, touring, coupé, convertible coupé, sedan, limousine, various customs.

Formidable full-classic on a 136ins wheelbase, descended from one of the USA's most powerful 1926 offerings. Some lovely special bodies by Locke, Dietrich and le Baron, but factory coachwork quite pleasing, too. Mechanics stock Chrysler, but conventional bonnet louvres and Vauxhall-type flutes which GM must have loved. Four-speed 'box on '30s, but very few imported.
