1975 Imperial LeBaron Coupé.jpg

Imperial LeBaron. 1974–5 (prod. n/a). 2-door coupé, 4-door hardtop sedan. F/R, 440 in³ (V8 OHV). Fuselage cars restyled to give a more formal appearance, and related to Chrysler New Yorker (1974–8). Cadillac and Lincoln rivals had better ride, though Imperial was still cosseting. Steering and braking improved over predecessor, and generally more reliable, but too big for the market, with terrible fuel economy—an undesirable mix in the wake of the fuel crisis. Chrysler did away with the Imperial marque after 1975, for the time being, and the LeBaron became the Chrysler New Yorker Brougham, with less standard equipment.
