How driving goes
A young ma, perhaps on his 20's standing by the curbside can't refrain himself shouting "awesome, next traffic light this lady moves swiftly to roll down the door window asking anxiously to take a picture while her boy sitting on back seat kept gazing at the car silhouette as I was justtrying to say..."It is a 57 Imperial...a 1957 Chrysler Imperial" to satisfy her curiosity .
The "Forward Look"
"We will do fins until someone shows me something better", that was the motto behind Mr. Virgil Max Exner Anderse, a hall of fame inductee, a brilliant designe, creator of the historic "Forward Look" program ahead of Chrysler Corporation during the best and arguably the most glamorousyears of American Automobile Industry.For the average American middle class family the so called "American Dream" was real, the gasoline was at 23 cents a gallon, the TV sets and other conveniences would changed forever the way of life .Throughout the history just a handful of automobiles cause such impact and sparkle so much attention as the 1957 Chrysler cars line up, at the top ofline it was the Imperial, considered by many the most beautiful car of the decad, leading the iconic "Fin Tail" era.
A bit about this car and its restoration
For this restoration I had to allocate resources in way that I could make it possibl, for the economic point of view this restoration cost ended up to exceed substantially the actual market value for this car, sure I could have restore my Porsche 911 with half of the time and one third of the cost but I had a point to prove i, I guess in some simpler way, I made a bit of " America Great Again" .The 1957 Imperial brought a lot a great new features to the automobile industr, for instance it was the first production car equipped with curved side window glasses, the hardtop model accentuate the harmonious splitted roof lines follow by this beautiful roof ceiling headlining complementingthis absolutely refined and fashionable interior design.I hope you will appreciate as much as I hav, during the process of this restoration, all the features and beauty of this iconic 69K miles matching numbers car, from the original Horizon Blue factory color to the over 250 pieces of chrome and trim harmoniously displayed over the entire body and interior along those special 24 Karat gold plated Crown badges ..and by the way " It's got a Hemi " too.
Thanks and good luck ...
