1963 Chrysler Turbine

Share on:

Chrysler built 50 experimental gas turbine cars in 1963 which they loaned to a sampling of preferred customers for evaluation in everyday driving conditions. High fuel consumption, high production costs, and difficulties experienced by drivers who were not used to the behavior of a turbine engine doomed the effort. With the exception of six which went to museums and one retained by Chrysler engineering, all were dismantled so Chrysler could avoid paying import duties on the Italian Ghia-built bodies.
