Description

The coachwork for the 1929 Imperial Roadster was by Locke & Company, a New York based coachbuilder from 1903 through 1937. Locke & Company built custom bodies for the most prestigious marques of its day, including Cadillac, Duesenberg, Hotchkiss, Locomobile, Marmon, Mercedes, Packard, Pierce Arrow, Rolls-Royce, and Stutz.

 

The elegant body rests on a 136-inch wheel-base. This unique body features a side entry rumble seat with a folding upper panel that, when raised, becomes a windshield for the rumble seat passengers. Because of this unusual rumble seat door, this roadster became known as a “three-door roadster”.  

 

This car is powered by a 309 cid, side-valve, six-cylinder engine capable of producing 100 hp.

Production of the L series Imperial ran only 21 months.
