Chrysler Imperial

 

This is one of those great design exercises where everything opens and then something else. You get opening doors, bonnet & boot as you would expect and tipping seats are expected too really by now - this one scores its extra points with the extraordinary chrome detailing, the front seat passengers (missing from the example below) & golf clubs in the boot.

The car was made from 1965 to 1967; it is found in a small range of colours, red both dark and light, metallic blue, turquoise or kingfisher blue. The interior is described as pale blue or green, I suspect the blue turns greenish with exposure to light. All versions are priced quite highly, most sought after is the kingfisher blue followed by metallic blue and then the turquoise & red cars. To get the value though you need a box, both driver and passenger and the golf trolley in the boot.
