My Dad who was an executive supervisor at Chrysler Export-Import, drove this Imperial home and gave us kids a ride. Very cool looking up at the stars through the roof. The queen used it to tour Windsor, Ontario Canada.

Given her age, she probably holds the record for being driven around in the most different makes of limousines.  Besides their own fleet of Rolls-Royces and Daimlers at home, she has ridden in Cadillacs, Lincolns, and Imperials in North America, and Mercedes Benzes, Zils and Chaikas in the former Soviet Union, and most likely a Volvo 264TE or two while in Sweden.  And maybe a HongQi CA770 in China.  

 

Too bad providing a road test on each would have been farthest from her mind while being chauffeured around in them!
