The Chrysler Imperial doesn’t come off as a muscle car and it was never directly marketed as one. But leave it to gearheads to get more out of a car than it was meant to do. The Imperial is a great candidate to have a Hemi V8 engine swapped into it (via Hagerty).
When it comes to big and beautiful cars, the Imperial was at the top of its class when it was brand new. The styling is iconic and one of the most memorable models from this generation. This is also a much more affordable classic car option for restoring on a budget.
