Matt,

The first pic is the 1959 Imperial Silvercrest Landau Roof option for 2 and 4 door hardtops. The Brougham was officially shown as a '57 on the auto show circuit begining in Nov '56, but deliveries began in the spring of '57.

Allegheny Ludlum Steel Corp. produced three 1931 Ford Model A's as a technical exercise. Subsequently, in 1936 they produced three 2 dr sedans, three 1960 Thunderbirds and three 1967 Continental 4 dr convertibles. The latter three groups of three were used for the promotional demonstrations of stainless steel as an general use material. These cars were shown throughout the US at various auto and trade shows. One of each model was auctioned off in a trifecta offering 5 Sept at Worldwide Auctioneers in Auburn.. https://worldwideauctioneers.com/steel/....$1,045,000
