1954 Chrysler Imperial
The Imperial was, for decades, the crowning achievement in Chrysler's offerings. The top-of-the-line Chrysler rivaled Cadillac, Lincoln, and even Deusenburg by pushing the limits of luxury and speed throughout its decades of production. The sixth generation Imperial, introduced in 1949, was based on the Chrysler New Yorker and featured many upgraded styling cues in addition to a custom interior. Though primarily focused on luxury and comfort, Chrysler introduced a number of industry firsts in their Imperial line. With the first commercially available power disk brakes, as well as the first car in over a decade to offer air conditioning, the Imperial was years ahead of the competition.
