Cztery ekscytujące samochody koncepcyjne z przodującego studia stylizacyjnego Chrysler Corporation.


Flight-Sweep


First shown to the public in 1955, the Flight Sweep I appeared in the Chrysler exhibit during the 1956 Chicago show. Standing only 53.6-inches tall, the 4-passenger convertible feature smooth, clean bodylines with upswept tailfins, integrated bumpers and a windshield that slope sharply at 56 degrees.


Flight-Sweep II


Falcon


Chrysler Corporation unveiled the experimental Plainsman "idea station wagon" during the January, 1956 Chicago Auto Show. Mounted on a 115-inch wheelbase Plymouth chassis, the 2-door wagon accent a Western theme with its "Palomino beige" finish, gold-colored Texas Longhorn medallion and hand-worked bronze trim which is chrome plated. A unique cantilever, stepped roof contain a centered louvered ventilator that provide draft-free ventilation of the 8-passenger cabin, and the padded white fabric top covering the rear two-thirds of the all-steel roof is weather-resistant. Clever idea on the Plainsman is the spare tire and wheel hidden behind the right wheel and accessed via a lift-up panel.
