CHRYSLER IMPERIAL

CHRYSLER IMPERIAL

Revolving captain's bucket chairs, push-button automatic transmission --- about the only option this late-'50s Imperial doesn't have is the 78rpm center-console record player (yes, there was one available). But as Los Angeles' KTLA-TV's Don Kent told me when I shot this photo, if you could afford that option, you could afford to have a live band in the back seat!
