Chrysler Imperial

Sinatra edition Imperial

The 1981-1983 Imperial two door model was created by command of Lee Iacocca, and was derived from the second-generation Cordoba (itself created from the Diplomat in 1980) and had its own sheet metal, instrument panel, etc. A good looking car with numerous features, it was praised for its ride but very few were sold, and it left production in 1983.

1981 Imperial

The 1981-83 Chrysler Imperial’s electronic fuel metering system was prone to interference from magnetic fields generated by power lines along roadways.  Chrysler replaced the system with carburetors after many complaints.
