As a result of the amalgamation of Chrysler and Imperial assembly operations, Imperial now benefited from the full, seven-stage, dip-spray corrosion-protection treatment. A separate metal shop was established to apply extra metal finishing to joints and seams in the body, while another special line in the paint shop allowed extra-quality sanding and the application of exclusive epoxy sealer coats to obtain a smooth, high-luster finish. After assembly, each Imperial was removed to its own inspection building for an intensive quality audit, high-pressure water testing, and a final road test to ensure that, according to Chrysler, "it rides, drives, and performs as an Imperial should. 1963 models were the last Virgil Exner Styled Imperials and saw the split Grille disappear again , replaced by a cluster of Chromed rectangles, and the Taillights were now mounted inside the rear fenders for the first time.
