1960 Chrysler Imperial LeBaron Southampton
According to my information, the LeBaron is a 4 door hardtop, known as the Southampton
Keko, what do you think of the placement of the front bumper. It looks like it is set back too far, and doesn't jut out like the GLM Convertible. Maybe it's the angle of the photograph? Any other opinions?

PIC - New in my collection by Keko Romero #27579
Seems odd they made a four door sedan version of the flagship LeBaron. by David Crowe #27579.1
What's odd? Kess replicated a 4-dr hardtop (not a sedan) Southampton. (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #27579.1.1
A hardtop with a heavy central pillar like that? Looks like a sedan to me. (EOM) by Graeme Ogg #27579.1.1.1
I don't think that's a pillar. It looks like photo etched window frames. (EOM) by John Kuvakas #27579.1.1.1.1
Looks like an interior colored B-Pillar inside. I don’t have the car so I am not trying to argue. by David Crowe #27579.1.1.1.1.1
Yup! I think you're right. by John Kuvakas #27579.1.1.1.1.1.1
Yes, there is a B pillar inside by Keko Romero #27579.1.1.1.1.1.2
Well, looks like David is right! Kess goofed! If this is a S. Hampton then it should be a hardtop! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #27579.1.1.1.1.1.3
I think the problem is that Kess did not labelled correctly the model by Keko Romero #27579.1.1.1.1.1.3.1
Right! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #27579.1.1.1.1.1.3.1.1

I'll show detailed pics soon (EOM) by Keko Romero #27579.1.1.2.2.1.1
Pillared sedan is a great choice for a luxury subject. A bit more conservative and elegant. (EOM) by Mark Lampariello #27579.1.2
The model looks excellent. Nice addition Keko. (EOM) by Bob Jackman #27579.2
Excellent (EOM) by Jacques Roest #27579.3

GLM made one too. by Harvey Goranson #27579.4.1
Wow! (EOM) by Christopher Moroni #27579.4.1.1
