    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    They were very reliable cars, but their downfall was that they were built on a stretched K-Car platform, which while of course waaay better than a K-Kar, they had inheirant limitations, and that they were front wheel drive ... but so were the Caddies of the day, remember. Secondly, they were too narrow and looked kinda pinched ) ( ~ I think the "Imperial-Buyers" stayed away from them, as well. It was the only series (1990-1993) that even we didn't purchase, switching to Cadillac (my 1993 Sixty Special).

Will the SRT-8 be standard? Optional, or Not Available, is unknown.
    No, I will never get rid of my Sixty Special, not to worry !! It would be the '03 Town Car. This Imperial should ONLY be made in black, white, cream, deep emerald, dark dark brown, dark grey (charcoal), or navy. Someone needs to put a picnic basket in the trunk !
    The 300 already is bigger then the STS is so the Imperial should be even longer then that. The only thing I read about the new Imperials said that Accubuilt is going to make them.

    I like those 1990s Imperials. They look nice and they're really cofortable inside. They have a lot of neat things that even Cadillacs didn't have.

    Accubuilt is going to make a limo of the Imp. Chrysler is making the Imperial Sedan. There allready are test mules running of the Imp Limo built by Accubuilt, wearing 300C bodies....

    K Car was reliable? I don't think so. The K car had problems with their transmissions and engines (they were, I believe mitsubishi built). The 90-93 looked nice and always reminded me of an oldsmobile 98, but they lack independent rear suspension which the olds, buick, and cad had.

    Omigod Sandy, I saw the magazine too and please tell me you're not serious - why would you want a vehicle that's such an obvious ripoff of another car?? And the proportions are COMPLETELY wrong: it looks like it's about eight feet long and as if it weighs about 40,000 pounds - so you're really kidding, right? Right??

    Nope! Dead serious, I saw the finished car, and you did not ~ The magazine car is NOT THE finished car, but an artist's conception. Remember that. The only part that is dead on is the roof & "C" pillar .....

    I think of those as a car that competes with the deVilles for features and amenities with a drivetrain that competes with the Park Aves/ Ninety Eights.

    Actually, now that I think about it, that car would be very similar to the 1990-93 Lincoln Continental, but about $4000 less new MSRP.

    Ohhkaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyy, I hope you're right. I admit to being crazy about the '57 Imperial - quality issues notwithstanding.

    Ahhhh, truthfully ~ you can't. Well, perhaps *IF* your parents had owned 22 consecutive Imperials, Chrysler Corporate Stock and Stock Options, your Uncle had been an ICP dealer and you yourself had sold ICP for many years and knew well placed "Hoy Paahloy" (hebrew, for VIPs) in the company yesterday (meaning in the last couple of years) as well at present...well then you'd have a shot. Remember this:

    (Sadly) Mother MOPAR is no longer really American, but German-American, and on its own has been really making the $$$$ over the last decade, and has the benefit of wealthy Mercedes Benz financial piggy bank, and have been investing heavily in ~HOT~ product. Pacifica, Crossfire, Magnum, Charger, 300C, The SRT-4 Neon, the SRT-8 trio, the SRT-10 Dodge Ram Truck, an All new Sebring for '07, All new Durango last year, etc, etc.
    Bringing back the HEMI and more to come! {Supercharged 6.1 Hemi, maybe ) ~ so...... if they are going to Re-Introduce the Imperial.....
    They ARE going to do it correctly. You will be impressed. I am not too keen on the color choices, in some instances....otherwise, she'll be black over black, perhaps cream piping........and a cream pin stripe.

    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    Will it be at the 2006 Detroit Autoshow perhaps??

    Also, will it be an Imperial, or a Chrysler Imperial?

    Gee, I'm so excited about this!!!
    It's not everyday a luxury nameplate comes back from the abyss!
    What's next, the LaSalle??

    Re: New 2007 Imperial

    There is a very good chance it will be at that show ....
    BTW....
    It was NEVER a Chrysler Imperial, it was ALWAYS just "Imperial" ~ Well....
    Imperial Custom
    Imperial Crown
    Imperial LeBaron.

    The MSO (Manufacturer's Statement of Origin) which was the paper from
    where the Statement of Ownership (title) was created, ALWAYS said:
    I M P E R I A L.....Never ever Chrysler Imperial !

    Really?!
    I thought for the 1990-93's that they were a Chrysler because they in the 1990 Chrysler full line catalog.

    I always thought that they had really cool hood ornaments with the crystal and whatnot.

    As much as I hate Chrysler, I have to admit they're really taking chances and pushing forwards with retro models and new designs, they're not sitting back and being ultra-cautious.
