Make? Model? Year? And why would this car be of interest to Chrysler enthusiasts?  -  -  -  -

A feature introduced on the Imperial concept car unveiled at this years Detroit auto show. I hope Chrysler decides to build it.  -

[LOL!] You get the prize for the most original guess. But this car isn't a copy of anything.

Bingo. This is a 1960 Facel Vega Excellence. Though built in France, the Facel Vega used a Chrysler big block engine. The 4-speed manual transmission built in France by Facel Vega for use in some models was imported by Chrysler in 1960 for use in the 300F "Special," of which only a handful were built.
