Wheels in the Grass

’67 Imperial, Niagara Falls, N.Y.

Today, it’s all about the cupholders. But, back when the brochure for this 1967 Imperial four-door sedan was printed, the headline at the top of page 16 proudly proclaimed: “The new Imperial sedan has a glove compartment in each door.”

Well, ya sold me! The pillared sedan was new to the Imperial line for model year 1967, but it would be gone after 1968, making it relatively rare. Only 2,193 were produced that first year, at a price of $5,374. Fewer that 1,900 made it out the door the following year. The pictured car can be seen tucked away beside a Niagara Falls USA car repair shop/used car lot building.
