1997 Chrysler Phaeton news, pictures, specifications, and information

The 1997 Chrysler Phaeton harks back to a time in the 30s and 40s when touring cars could be seen on the roads and the people driving inside them were strictly upper class. That's why Phaeton was built to be a four-door, four-seat convertible, wîth a separate windscreen behind the front seats to separate the driver from the passengers. The rear seat area had its own speedometer and tachometer so the rear seat passengers could monitor the car's performance.

And perform it did. Beneath those long, sweeping lines sat a 5.4-liter V12 made from joining together two of Chrysler's 2.7-liter V6s. That much engine produced in the neighborhood of a whopping 425 horsepower. Phaeton was a monster in size, too. With a 132-inch wheelbase, the car measured 215 inches in overall length and was 78 inches wide and 55 inches tall. It rode on 22-inch tires and the two-piece hardtop electrically stowed in the trunk.

Of course a vehicle meant for the touring elite left nothing to spare inside the doors. Seats in both the front and rear were leather-clad and more like overstuffed club chairs wîth armrests and handy consoles than traditional buckets. The interior was also finished wîth satin metal accents and wood inlays
