1901 - 1906

Imperial offered two contrasting designs to start with, a vis-a-vis with 3.5hp single-cylinder engine under the seat, and a 4-seater rear-entrance tonneau with front-mounted 6hp 2-cylinder engine.  This had shaft drive, while the rear-engined car was driven by bevel gearing from the gearbox.  Later cars sold under the Imperial name were French built, of the Lacoste et Battmann type, with English-built bodies.  A 20hp 4-cylinder double phaeton was made in 1906.
