The "Forward Look"
"We will do fins until someone shows me something better", that was the motto behind Mr. Virgil Max Exner Andersen ,a hall of fame inductee, a brilliant designer ,creator of the historic "Forward Look" program ahead of Chrysler Corporation during the best and arguably the most glamorous
years of American Automobile Industry.
For the average American middle class family the so called "American Dream" was real, the gasoline was at 23 cents a gallon, the TV sets and other
conveniences would changed forever the way of life .
Throughout the history just a handful of automobiles cause such impact and sparkle so much attention as the 1957 Chrysler cars line up, at the top of
line it was the Imperial, considered by many the most beautiful car of the decade ,leading the iconic "Fin Tail" era.
A bit about this car and its restoration
For this restoration I had to allocate resources in way that I could make it possible , for the economic point of view this restoration cost ended up to
exceed substantially the actual market value for this car.Every single mechanical system has been overhauled or restored ,over 25000 dolares spent just on rechrome plating and stainless steel polishing,the interior was replicated utilizing Ralph Lauren style fabric and the car was refinished with PPG Vibrance Collection paint ,the top of the lin.
The 1957 Imperial brought a lot a great new features to the automobile industry , for instance it was the first production car equipped with curved side window glasses, the hardtop model accentuate the harmonious splitted roof lines follow by this beautiful roof ceiling headlining complementing this absolutely refined and fashionable interior design.
I hope you will appreciate as much as I have ,during the process of this restoration, all the features and beauty of this iconic 69K miles matching numbers car, from the original Horizon Blue factory color to the over 250 pieces of chrome and trim harmoniously displayed over the entire body and interior along those special 24 Karat gold plated Crown badges ..and by the way " It's got a Hemi " too.
