IMPERIAL — SERIES C-14 — EIGHT: The true 1937 Imperial was no longer an Airflow. These cars had the same basic styling as the new Royal six with a longer hood and cowl. The Imperial name appeared on the nose between the grille and the wraparound hood louvers. Imperials had a longer wheelbase, larger tires and more luxurious interior appointments than the sixes. They also had the new, built-in defroster vents, insulated body mountings, and seat safety padding. The Imperial engine continued to use an aluminum cylinder head in both its low and optional high-compression forms.
