This Chrysler special was exhibited on the Chrysler stand at the 1953 Paris Auto Salon. Built on a shortened New Yorker chassis it has the 230 bhp Chrysler 'Firepower Hemi' V8 and the then-new Power-Flite transmission. This 'Idea car' was the work of industrial designer Virgil Exner, who was contracted by Chrysler along with Carrozzeria Ghia to build the coupe coachwork.
