One Family Owner for 20+ Years

In the mid-1950s, car companies were moving forward in the design of the automobile.  Indeed, cars were getting longer and lower thanks to men like Harley Earl.  Both Ford and Chevrolet had designs in place that would bring the car from the high sided look to the sleek and aerodynamic shape that came to epitomize the 1950s.  When Chrysler caught wind of what was over the horizon in the early 1950s, they were caught completely off-guard. Chrysler’s Chairman of the Board K.T. Keller was still adamant about a tall and boxy car that you could wear a hat in.  Reality soon set in and a sneak peek at the competition let Chrysler know that they were in deep trouble.  Virgil Exner was brought in and completely revamped Chrysler’s line-up.  Exner’s brilliant work made its debut in 1955 with the all-new “Million Dollar Look.”  Chrysler’s cars for 1955 were sleek, sexy and were all built with V-8 power.  Indeed, Exner’s design skills provided Chrysler with a banner year for 1955 with 152,777 cars sold.

This example comes from a family who has had this ‘55 in their collection for 20+ years. The ‘55 model is a two door which has an attractive roofline. The exterior is finished in Platinum & Porcelain Green which suits the car as well as the liberal amount of chrome. Massive chrome bumpers front and rear plant the vehicle as well as the huge chrome grill, chrome side trim, and fender trim. This car was designed for style, not to be lightweight. Under the hood is a is the Spitfire 301ci Poly Sphere 2BBL 188HP V8. The push button PowerFlight transmission is rather unique. Inside this one has the typical 1955s treatments: a huge steering wheel with horn ring, metal dash, and big comfortable vinyl bench seats. This car has a ton of style and really is a joy to drive. Take this one to the next car show, parade, or drive it to work to stand out from the crowd.
