A rear view of a Chrysler Imperial from the 1955 or 1956 model year.  

Tail light

 Seen from almost above, the hood ornament resembles an airplane in streaming flight.

A slightly more side view shows a cockpit and the ornament seems to shoot out from the hood.

The Imperial logo can be seen here.  


  1. I like the chrome ring around the taillight!

  2. Reading through your recent classic cars series, it seems like each auto company had its own design style. One can, with fair certitude, identify a car simply by looking at the design and not the nameplate.
