Highlights of an exceptional collection of cars at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum.
The musclecars are packed nose-to-tail in “Boss Chrysler’s Garage.” The garage is located in the basement of the Walter P. Chrysler Museum, in Auburn Hills, MI. This day, however, we elected not to inspect the Chargers, ‘Cudas, Road Runners and Dusters. Instead, we turned our attention to the main and upper floors where, on display was billed the “first-ever collection of Chrysler classic, custom and concept vehicles.” The exhibit, dubbed Inspired Chrysler Design: The Art of Driving, featured more than 25 cars spanning eight decades. Recognized for design and engineering excellence, the cars, on loan from private and museum collections, ran the gamut from a 1924 Chrysler Phaeton to concepts that tour the current show circuit.
While we don’t have the space to showcase the entire exhibit, we’ve selected five cars that are interesting and that you might not be all that familiar with. Hey, if you’re a Mopar guy (or gal), you should have some appreciation of your marque’s roots.
