1964-1970 Imperial LeBaron

The 1964-1970 Imperial LeBaron, the Imperial's small-volume (except for the bumper 1969 season) upper-class line, still a more luxurious version of the less expensive models. Offered only as a four-door hardtop through 1968, it was then joined by a two-door companion.

Priced $600-800 upstream of the comparable Crowns, it boasted more standard accessories and more lavish interior appointments. A half-dozen cars were converted into limousines by the Stageway Coaches company in Arkansas, Chrysler's attempt to keep alive the spirit of the earlier Ghia Crowns.

Predictably, comments for 1964-70 Crown models also apply here.
