The 1961 Imperial symbolised the highlight, and the end of the tail-fin era.

It was also the highlight of Virgil Exner's career at the Chrysler design studio.


In 1999, I saw this beautiful car at the German "Oldtimer Garnd Prix",
it was in excellent condition.

The owner, Mr. Robert-Louis Brezout from France sent me some pictures, which he had taken at Versailles, France. Better location, better light, better photos...
