The Imperial name has long been synonymous with quality, and it is not without reason. With hand fitted bodies and interiors, Imperial touted its 1960 model as “America’s most carefully built car.” With over 600 meticulous inspections performed during the production of each car produced, it’s no wonder that Chrysler regarded its finished product as its proudest achievement—and what an achievement it was!
This gorgeous 1960 Imperial Custom is finished in Alaskan White. Its finish has a nice luster that is further accentuated by an abundance of chrome and bright work that is in very good condition. Much of the exterior chrome has been refinished or polished in recent years. Other exterior “eye candy” includes new wide white wall tires and wire wheels.
The blue interior of this car is equally impressive. Its commanding dashboard features a full array of instrumentation and gauges, as well as a push button automatic transmission. The seats, door panels, and headliner were redone in recent years, and you’ll also appreciate the addition of a Kenwood AM/FM stereo with CD player for all your favorite tunes. Other comfort and convenience features include the following:
With the exception of the clock, all power options work as they should, including the air conditioning.
Under the hood you will find a 413 CID V-8 engine which generates an impressive 350 horsepower. The engine is mated to a TorqueFlite three speed automatic transmission. The transmission was just completely rebuilt on this 81,800 original mile car. Other recent mechanical updates include new brakes, a new power steering pump and battery. The car runs and drives as well as it looks.
One item of note is that the finish and exterior bright work exhibit some minor imperfections that do not detract from the overall appearance of the car. In addition, the interior does show some wear, but generally presents well.
If a highly styled, well running low production classic is what you’re after, this 1960 Imperial Custom is the car for you!
