If you would have to buy just one, what would be your pick?  I am tempted by the 61 Dubonnet closed top or one of the Ghia limos. Some of the future releases maybe?

I would purchase the Rockefeller edition for its (1:1) rarity. The model looks good with the closed quarters.

Since I collect Mopar 2 dr htps from 1955 to 1961, the GLM 1960 Imperial Southampton htp coming soon is a must for me. I like the dark blue below. Hope they continue with the '57 through '61 Southamptons.

@jack-dodds Same here. It was not an original Imperial color, but should have been, and at least one has been restored in this color. The white top up suits it perfectly.

I also love the Imperial 2 door body styles.  I'm holding out for a '62 with those gorgeous "floating" headlamps and tamed fins.  GLM has modelled several years of 4 door and drop top Imperials. Fingers crossed for the 1962 as a second coupe offering from this era which they are covering so successfully.

Waiting for the '62 as well. That would be awesome.

@jcarnutz What was the show car the 61 Imperial front end was inspired from?

@mg-harv I am very disappointed to be informed this  is not an OEM color.  Are you sure? I already ordered it.

The color is a Chrysler color for 1961, but from what I've read, it was not a color offered for the Imperial at the time. The model is simply outstanding in that color and there is at least one that is in that color. I've seen it in person a couple of times.
