In the 1950s, the Chrysler management felt the need to establish its premium models more strongly among its main competitors, so they set up a new brand named Imperial, which was to become what Lincoln was for Ford or Cadillac for GM. While this goal was ultimately not achieved, it meant that for nearly two decades, from 1956 to 1975, Imperial was an independent brand name for Chrysler’s top range of full-size luxury cars. Within the Imperial lineup, three trim levels were available: Custom, Crown and LeBaron. Earlier models up until 1963 followed the “Forward Look” design by Virgil Exner, later models the three-box styling by Elwood Engel. Pundits differentiate a total of six generations of Imperial models. Until 1967, Imperial cars had their own platform. This was given up for cost reasons, as was the unique bodyshell in 1969. With not so much to distinguish the Imperial from the much cheaper Chrysler cars, sales dropped and Chrysler was forced to discontinue the Imperial brand. In the early 1980s, Chrysler briefly returned to marketing luxury cars under the Imperial name.
