This guy says is "one of a few parade cars ever made" implying that this is a factory built car. As far as I know, the only 'parade' car Chrysler ever built was the 52 Phaeton, and this car doesn't look anything like that. Did Chrysler make a parade car for 55? Or is this just a 2 door that someone cut the top off of?

The 52 Parade cars looked like this:



There were three cars, initially all owned by the Federal government. One each in New York City, Detroit and Los Angeles

By 1955, they had been updated to look like 56 model year Imperials:

The white with speaker boxes is the Los Angeles car. Boxes at all corners are for the mayor's use during parades, etc.

It's currently used by mayor Eric Garcetti, who is planning to run against Trump in 2020 so you'll probably be hearing more about him in the coming years. I'm a little disappointed that a mayor of a major US city is going around waving a Mexican flag. Nothing very wrong with it, but I think it sends the wrong message.

If it's being used by him, does a supporter own it?

<p>That's the City of Los Angeles flag, not the Mexican national flag. Is there any Democrat NOT running against Trump?    </p><p>The car has been officially owned by Los Angeles City  since it was built.</p><p> </p>

Yeah, it's been owned by the city this whole time. Amazing they haven't sold it off yet. I bet if you asked them with enough money, they would justify it somehow....Thanks Wayne, I guess I should study my flags a little better.
