Artist rendition of a custom landau limousine custom built limousine,
it has a transparent plexiglas rear section on a regular 75 body.
Article stated this was a custom build for Queen Elizabeth's visit in
1959, the fact it a 1956 and the Queen arrived in 1959 is a bit confusing.
Thanks to Al Navis for an update on these photos. (7/22/06)
This artist's rendering above probably was supposed to be the vehicle that GM
contributed to the Queens Royal Tour, but if that one was built, it wasn't used for that
Tour. Instead, Chrysler and Ford also were invited to construct limousines for
the Tour. The two pictures of the 1959 Imperial which were used are below.

Look at the History of Royal Travel", author Peter Pigott)
