USA

Every Chrysler is built from the bottom up to drive better and last longer. Constructed as a solid, single unit instead of a separate body and frame, Chrysler is far stronger and quieter than conventional cars. Dipped seven times in rust-resistant chemicals and rinses, it sports a tough protective shield against corrosion outside and in. Chrysler's Torsion-Aire torsion bars instead of the usual front coil springs make Chrysler ride smoothly, steer safely. The brakes are bigger ... feel surer ... than the brakes on competitive cars. When you drive it, you'll know that Chrysler has no use for compromise, for 'next-best' or "as-good-as." Do you?


UNIQUE Unibody construction MAKES Chrysler STRONGER, QUIETER, ROOMIER

Conventional cars have a frame... and a body that sits on the frame. Chrysler's Unibody combines the body and frame in a single, integrated unit.
What does all this mean to you?
Strength!
Quietness!
Roominess!

Chrysler Turboflite
Chrysler Corporation uses Turbo Flite concept car as a showcase for the company's experimental turbine engine. The car's top rise automatically as doors opens. At the rear, note the integral dual exhaust outlets, plus the horizontal spoiler that join the left and right fender fins together. TurboFlight concept was designed Virgil Exner. As the name implies the car is powered by a third generation turbine engine. The entire canopy would lift up/down in sync with the doors opening/closing, and the headlights are retractable. A unique deceleration flap is mounted horizontally between the soaring tailfins. This is another collaborate effort between Ghia of Italy and Chrysler’s engineers.
