Though Chrysler has used the nameplate since then, on front wheel drive K-car derivatives, the last traditional, V8 powered, rear wheel drive Imperial was sold from 1981 through 1983. Fewer than 13,000 were sold so you’re not likely to come across one very often. Coming across a pristine, original condition ’83 Imperial is rarer yet. I spotted this at the Sloan Museum Auto Fair last summer in Flint, Michigan. How do I know it’s an original survivor and not restored? Look at the rear valence. Those are the original dealer and rustproofing stickers.

"...I've been over to Cars In Depth on many occasions. Barring the whole 3D thing which drives me up the wall (that's a personal thing, though), I like the content, the writing, and the simple formatting. You do a great job over there, and I am impressed."
