One of only 415 Crown Imperials built in 1950, this 20-foot-long monster rides on a 145-inch wheelbase. With all eight passengers (plus driver), curb weight approaches 4 tons. Chrysler’s standard 12-inch drum brakes just weren’t up to the job. The sweet red Galaxie in the background is not a four-speed 7.0L, it’s a 352 car with auto trans. Drat!
