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.
