Can't really tell from this angle whether this is an Imperial Custom or an Imperial Crown.
(It is definitely not a LeBaron.)

Commander 57, I based the ID as Custom not Crown in these two classics ads.
While in Custom the chrome bar in front fender I note it's thin (as I think the pic shows)

In the Crown I note that bar wider. But could be, a fault in the Ad.

I believe that is an ad fault.
I closely compared both models in multiple brochures and also consulted the "Standard Catalog of American Cars". The only listed difference is a crown emblem on top of the front fenders on the Crown series.

Here is a close up of the front of an Imperial Crown:

Notice the small crown emblems.
The Custom had the small fender "V"'s with no crowns above them.

Merged here other (part seen) in episode 1.23. Could be a Custom or a Crown (both) Four Door Sedan

Cannot say for sure that it is the same car in both episodes but that is entirely possible as they were both from the same TZ season and just a few episodes apart.
Here is a link to my post in the contributions section.
I had a 2nd view there but don't see it today. It showed the crown emblem a little better.

Commander 57, you're absolutely correct. This is a Crown. Although not shown from this angle, the Crown series was also distinguished by a small crown emblem on the trunk lid for '57 through '59.

By the way, check out the beautiful '59 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer Two Door Hardtop chasing the Imperial. It looks like it's wearing every trim option available that year. (My parents owned a Coronet Lancer for '59.) What wonderful cars we had to fire our imagination in those days!

The '59 Dodge was certainly an unforgettable design.
All the Chrysler products were excellently styled between '57 and '59.

Interesting, that later Virgil Exner came up with unforgettable ugly Stutz Blackhawk.
