Thank you for posting, @olds -- since you are in PA, are you planning on bringing any of those beauties to Carlisle?

"D" is 1966 and older....
Actually, 1967 and up are "C" bodies (Chrysler) and the Imparials were "C" body ,, "Y" line...
SO I guess, technically ,, Imperials '67 up are "C" bodies...

That would make my other post incorrect.. my apologies ...

And again,, your cars look very nice..... :) :) :) :)

OK, kids, the "D"-body applied to the '64-'66 Imperials only! After that, they were considered "C"-body cars from '67 to the end of Imperial production.

The "Y" is the car line!!! Example - A 1967 Coronet is a "B"-body, but the first character of the VIN starts with a "W". You never hear of one referred to as a "W"-body, do you? An Imperial VIN starts with a "Y", and is NOT a "Y" body car.

The only Imperial to actually BE a "Y"-body was the '89-'92 front-wheel-drive Imperials. The Factory Service Manual validates this.
