In 1930, Chrysler produced over 60,000 vehicles in the five series and 37 models. The series 77 featured hydraulic internal brakes, a new flat V-type radiator and a floor-mounted gearshift for the four-speed transmission.

Part of Chrysler's success was their racing pedigree. Their cars appeared at Le Mans, Spa and in the Mille Miglia since 1924. In 1930, two model 77 Roadster raced at Spa in Belgium. A Chrysler driven by Stoffel and De Costier finished 5th behind three Alfas and a Bugatti.

This Roadster, one of only 1,729 Model 77 Roadster built in 1930, was acquired by the current owner in 2006. It has been given a complete, no expense spared restoration. Since then, it has been driven sparingly and been carefully maintained. It is painted in two-tone blue paintwork and has a cloth top. The engine is an L-head, six-cylinder unit capable of producing 93 horsepower. There are four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes and a four-speed manual transmission.

In 2009, this Model 77 Roadster was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey presented by RM Auctions where it was expected to sell for $80,000 - $100,000. Bidding reached $65,000 but was not enough to satisfy reserve. The lot was left unsold.

Crown Sedan
The Chrysler 77 series was named thusly because the company guaranteed a crusing speed of 77 miles per hour and a top speed of 90 miles per hour!

Power was supplied by a 100 horsepower six-cylinder motor. The Chrysler 77 also featured four-wheel hydraulic brakes and a four-speed transmission.

Nine different body styles were available within the 77 series, including the Crown Sedan, which sold new for $1,795.

Interestingly, the Chrysler Building in New York City was completed in 1930.
