1960 Chrysler

For 1960, all the cars in the Chrysler line received a rather attractive face-lift, and this year the 300F performance model looked more like its siblings than it had in the previous three seasons. The appeal of Speed Weeks hadn't been lost on those behind the "letter-cars," and at Daytona, with the new ram-air induction, the top six fastest production vehicles entered were 300F models. In an experimental super-charged version, Andy Granatelli attained a speed of 172.6 mph at Bonneville.

Carefully refined over the decades, by 1960 the Imperial offered not only exclusivity and grand style but also strong performance with its powerful 413 cubic inch engine, and excellent handling thanks to its torsion-bar suspension. Much more than “upscale Chryslers”, the 1960 Imperial line shared only its strong powertrain with other Chrysler products, and ever since 1955, the Imperial was considered a separate marque all its own.

Just 618 Imperial Crown convertibles were produced for 1960.
