Re: IML: 1957 Chrysler Imperial Crown Convertible

That part is made of unobtainium, alas. The piece from your car no doubt went to complete another convertible. Not the same piece as for 60 to 63, 57 piece is almost vertical at the ends ant the later ones are flat. Not sure about 58s and 59s but probably same as 57. Know about this as we are starting a resto of our 57 Imperial and I thought I'd lost those stainless pieces but found them already polished. Had handled this a few years ago and you know how projects start and stop so we're finally getting to it. Delivered it to our restorer this past week. Anyway, I will keep my eyes/ears open for you. You might try Lowell Howe in Patterson Ca at 209-892 3464 or cell 209-581-6221. Cell is better. He has maybe two or three Imperial cvts. that are very far gone so he may be willing to let go some of the trim pieces if he still has them. Please use my name Henry Hopkins. We have dealt with Lowell for many years on more than several projects. He's pure gold.


P. S. I do know of a source to have those pieces remade. Years ago I was desparate for some trim pieces for a car and I found a source that has excellent references. Expensive, of course. so that's your back-up plan. Also the end pieces are triangular and I don't have a set of those so if you find what you're looking for plus the end pieces, try for a second set of end pieces or maybe I can use yours to have a set cast for us. There's a fellow in France in the IML who sent me a pic of the end pieces.

Thanks, Henry
