If These Cars Could Talk: 1933 Chrysler Imperial Roadster
Join us for an in-depth look at the many automobiles in our collection and discover their part in our history. If These Cars Could Talk is a monthly program offered by museum staff for free to the public on the first Saturday of each month.
In 1933 the Imperial Roadster was the most expensive automobile in the Chrysler lineup and was a competitor of Auburns and Cords. This line featured a silent three-speed transmission and a long, cowl-less hood. This was the last year that Chrysler used hood doors before moving on to louvers for ventilation. In 1933 only 155 Imperials were produced such as this custom Roadster. Only nine Roadsters were built, of which six still exist.
