Chrysler Imperial D'Elegance

Chrysler Imperial D'Elegance -

The Chrysler Imperial D’Elegance is a concept car from 1958.

Supposedly Exner was never very happy with this car, but nonetheless it is just chuck full of embryonic design themes that he used in modified form on production cars within a few years

The fin treatment with suspended lighting appeared on the ’61 Imperial. The dashboard appears to be virtually identical to the 61-63 Imperial. The taillight pods (minus the fins above) appeared on the ’62 Dodge. The eyebrows and hood shape appeared on the ’60 Imperial

The door handles are most unusual, the buttons are positioned right in the middle of the cut lines of the door openings.
