The Development of the Chrysler K Car
The Chrysler Corporation's K-cars were an automobile platform of
compact-to-midsize cars designed to carry six adults on two bench seats and
were aimed not only to replace Chrysler's nominally compact F-body Aspen
and Volaré, but also to compete with intermediates like the Chevrolet
Malibu and Ford Fairmont. Based on their passenger space, the K-cars were
placed in the same "midsize" category by the United States Environmental
Protection Agency as Chrysler's significantly larger and heavier M-body
The K cars have been categorized as compact for their external size and
small front-wheel drive layout. Technically, the K cars include only the
Dodge Aries, Plymouth Reliant, second generation Chrysler LeBaron, and the
Dodge 400, which used the K platform. The rest of the K-derivatives,
including Chrysler's minivans, were based on the K platform with
adaptations and modifications to suit vehicles of different sizes and
intended usage. These vehicles had modified suspensions and were longer and
heavier than the original K-cars, but all had the same basic architecture:
a solid beam rear axle, independent front suspensions with MacPherson
struts, and front-wheel drive (except for the AWD minivans). Sometimes,
they also shared numerous internal components and trim pieces (e.g., the
Reliant and first-generation Voyager).

Just Arrived - The 1986 Chrysler New Yorker
It just came today...
My dreams have finally been fullfilled!!!!!!!!
This car also has auto level air ride suspension!
Note: It only has 52,800 miles on it. The mileage on the instrument
cluster was from a replacement one.
Also, the radio is not original. I would like to find the original one and
install it instead.
Long Live the K-Car

1962 Imperial Lebaron & Imperial Crown Promotional Film
This is a promo featuring the 1962 Imperial Crown and LeBaron. They also
focus on the move from the Imperial factory to the Chrysler factory.
Imperials had been built in their own factory like Cadillac and Lincoln.
Many people this gave the car less prestige.

look at the very unique 1963 Chrysler Imperial 2-door hardtop.
During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look at what the
vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance data, fuel
economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I will teach
you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a detailed
fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a dealership
yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and unique
differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course it
would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.

vehicles from past, present, and future while broadening the knowledge of

Junkyard Cars Chrysler Imperial Hot Spot
Here is a junkyard I found in Fresno, California. There was about 5 acres
of nothing but Chrysler Imperial's. I also ran across an old Jeepster, and
29 Chevy truck, some old hit and miss motors, and an Guiberson 9 cylinder
radial diesel tank engine. There was a lot more to look at but I did not
have time to see everything.

First Drive: Chrysler Imperial Concept
Go to MYRIDE.COM for more car videos.
With the 300, Chrysler created a smash hit. When it was introduced, the
upscale style of this sedan captured the admiration of people from all
walks of life, and the best part, you didn't have to be a millionaire to
afford one. Learning from its success, it appears Chrysler may be looking
to use the same formula with its new Imperial Concept. Introduced at this
year's North American International Auto Show, the Imperial is positioned
to be Chrysler's flagship luxury sedan, that is, if they decide to build
