Why would they be different than any C body big block - same rad
support, same underhood sheet metal,  its just a NYer with
different exterior clothes... ?

That is weird... why would that be? Every C that I ever saw had a 26" rad. I had a '69 Imp, but I never measured it.

Even though some would, and have, argue this point (especially on the Dock) Imperials were "D Bodies" until '69.  Even then, they had many different parts that the other Cs did not, draveshafts for instance.  The '67-8 Imp was the last year for them being a seperate marque in the Chrysler line.


 
However, they still did not appear in the Chrysler literature with the others Cs.  I just had an occasion to look at my '70 sales flyer and the Imp is not in it.

Driveshaft because of longer wb. But essentially the same as a NYer, as you can see by the parts book. same radiator.

Don't have a parts book, but in my '75 Chilton's book, the Imp has a larger capacity radiator every year from '69-'75 than the other Cs.  But, the capacity for the '68 is the same.  Hmmm...



 
Did not realize that the wheelbase stayed at 126 on the Imps - just looked in my '70 Service Manual.  But I wasn't just talking about length of the drive-shaft, I meant the dual CV joints on the shaft that is not on other Cs, plus completely different front suspensions.  Underneath they are quite a different animal, even in the '70s.
 
That's why that one guy on the Dock always ended his posts with "Imperials: not a C, never was, never will be!"  To me, the fact that they share the same service maunal as my Newport in '70, I'd say they became a C in '69.

I guess it could be considered a mildly modified C... sort of like the
minor changes to the B Body to become an R body... same but different.
