Poor Proportions: 1979 Cadillac Seville Opera Coupe 26K – STILL $24,000

19 Months Gone: 1983 Chrysler Imperial – STILL $9,500

One of the first projects Lee Iaoccoca initiated when he took over leadership at Chrysler was to bring back the company’s storied Imperial brand.  The early 1980s Imperial was only available as a stunning two-door, rear-wheel-drive coupe.
