    Two Black Beauty cars were built from 440-CID 1966 Chrysler Imperials. After restyling with steel panels and a custom grille, each was painted with black lacquer and fitted with custom wheels. When the series ended, both were sent on tour. After that one was sold to a studio employee and the other was sold to a private collector. There were only two cars built for the series and both are around today. One in the Petersen Museum in LA and the other is in a private collection in South Carolina.
