You are correct the front sheet metal and sub frame are Imperial only. Long ago 1970 to be exact I bought a total 70 Imperial. I had done a Dukes of Hazzerd off an expressway landed so hard it was bent in a U. The sub frame had torn out of the floor where bolted on both front fenders were bent upwards. Nothing else was damaged. The body man I had at the times only comment was WOW!!. We broke the car in half repaired and reinforced the floor where the sub frame bolted on. Put the frame back two new fenders (you could not find yard fenders as so few Imperials sold) and BOY did Chrysler charge for the fenders. When done it was a gold and black beauty. But compared to the FURY cop cars we had so many of it wallowed down the road like a fat lady in a bath tub. We sold it to an older gentleman who was forever scraping it on his garage door.
