1960 IMPERIAL
Every Imperial was patiently wet-sanded by hand before becoming "OK to ship." This was just one of the reasons Imperial was America's most carefully built car. 1960 Imperial Crown Four-Door Southampton in Formal Black

For 1960, the Imperial roof featured the exclusive canopied Landau roof treatment. Polished moldings swept forward from the base of the roof quarter panel (just behind the rear side window) to the top of the Imperial compound windshield. Optionally, on any Sedan or Southampton model, the side roof areas created by this molding could be painted in a contrasting Two-Tone color (see below right) for added distinction. A Silvercrest Landau roof option was also available, with the canopy section matching the body color, and dramatic stainless steel inserts in the side roof areas. The Silvercrest Landau roof was standard on the LeBaron. Imperial Eagle circa 1960
Imperial trivia:

Did you know the name "Southampton" when used to describe an Imperial model simply means the car has no "B" pillar? It's true!
