The 1930 Chrysler Series 70 had an L-head, six-cylinder engine displacing nearly 100 horsepower and mated to a four-speed multi-range gearbox. It was available in several bodystyles including a Roadster, Business Coupe, Royale Coupe (in both 2 and 2/4 seating), Convertible Coupe, and Royale Sedan. These body styles were available throughout all of Chrysler's model, including the Series 66, Series 77 and Series CJ. Additional bodystyles available on the Series 70 included a Phaeton and Brougham Sedan. The most popular Series 70 body style was the Royale Sedan, with 11,213 examples produced. The 4-door Phaeton with seating for 5 saw just 279 examples sold, the fewest number in the Series 70 lineup.

The Chrysler Series 70 came standard with a Delco Remey ignition system, hydraulic brakes, mechanical fuel pump and new 'paraflex' springs. The engine had a downdraft carburetor. In the front was a narrow profile radiator and bowl shaped headlights. The examples produced earlier in the year had pennon type hood louvers. Later examples had vertical hood louvers, thermostatic radiator shutters, and new type instrument panel.

The Phaeton body styles exudes the deco style so prominent at the time. They were popular during the 1920's and early 1930's and featured a cloth top that could disappear and were devoid of windows. The Model 70 Phaeton was a top-line, entry-level Phaeton, giving customers a feeling of opulence, offering a wide array of creature comforts that were found in more expensive vehicles, and a plethora of torque. The Model 70 were less swanky than the Chrysler Model 75 Phaeton, and offered a nice amount of sportiness, elegance, and period-popular styling.

This Model 70 Phaeton has been maintained by the same family for a number of years and wears an older restoration. It is painted in two-tone tan and brown with an interior finished in black leather and polished aluminum accoutrements.

The Chrysler Corporation has been in existence since the early 1920's with their first vehicle offered for mass production being the Model B-70. It was introduced to the public at the New York Auto Show held at the city's Hotel Commodore. The vehicle was very versatile with nine bodystyles being offered that ranged from a $2725 through $3225. The vehicles were offered in a variety of two- and four- door configurations with seating that could accommodate up to five passengers. Mounted under the hood was a six-cylinder L-head engine that displaced just over 200 cubic-inches and produced nearly 70 horsepower. The engine was mated to a three-speed manual gearbox with floor shift controls, shaft drive, and a conventional clutch. Braking was by four-wheel hydraulics. All bodystyles rode on a 112.75-inch wheelbase and had a length of 160-inches.

The response was positive, with nearly 80,000 examples of both the Chrysler and the Maxwells sold. As such, little was changed in the following year.

The Series 70 would remain in production until 1931. It had withstood the onset of the Great Depression and by the early 1930s, was feeling its age. A new look had been introduced for Chrysler in the early 1930s, though little changed on the Series 70. For 1931, the list of models included the Series CJ with its six cylinder engine, the CD and CG with eight cylinders, and the CM which was also known as the 'New SEries Six'. The Series 66 and Series 70 had both been carried over from the prior year with few changes.
