Is it useful to include "2-door" in the model name? :??: The fact that it is in the "coupé" category is enough, I think

Let's wait for DAF555's comment. He certainly knows how this car was advertised when it was new.

I think it is useful for a Sedan (berline) 2 doors, which is different than a coupé and has often the same shape and lengh than a Sedan 4doors...many example with Opel, Ford..etc..

For starters this is a 1960 Imperial Crown Southampton. Imperial was an individual make from 1955 separated from the Chrysler name. But I guess at some markets they still sold as Chrysler Imperials.

And about including "2-door" in the model name here, I agree with antp. It´s usually a needless info since you can see either one it is.

It is a much nicer name you found, anyhow! ;)

Imperial Southamptons were either two or four door "hardtop" or pillarless sedans. They also offered regular four door sedans with a B pillar that did not carry the Southampton name. All 2doors/coupes were hardtops, thus all were Southamptons. When the pillarless sedans were popular in the 1950's, many makers gave them a special extra name to distinguish them from their "dowdier" pillared sedan cousins (and maybe rationalize their slighly higher price).

A bit of meaningless information: 1960 was the last year in which non-Southamptons (i.e. pillared 4-door sedans) were available in the standard Imperial lineup. Commencing 1961 until the temporary demise of the make after 1974, all Imperials were Southamptons. The sole exception were the "Crown Imperial" extended formal Limousines (not to be confused with the Imperial "Crown" equipment package), but they were coachbuilt by Ghia in Italy and later by Barreiros in Spain in ultra limited numbers, usually less than 10 a year. They thus are considered non-standard.

The movie is set in 2019. That would make this car 59 years old :p

Not quite right, Junkman.
In '67 and '68 there were pillared Imperial sedans.
The NADA also lists a 4-door sedan along with the hardtops for model year 1969 but I have never seen one.
(And I don't think the actual "Southampton" name was used after 1963)

Ah! Found a photo of a true 1969 Imperial Sedan.
(The Imperial Web Pages site states this was the final true sedan through the first series end in 1975 and this agrees with the NADA listings.)

Great choice for this movie. This car was designed to look futuristic, and in light of today's designs, missed the mark by quite a lot. Just like all the failed techonolgy in this movie.
