“Chrysler Turbine Cars were automobiles powered by gas turbine engines that the Chrysler Corporation made from 1962-1964. The Chrysler Turbine Car was the first and only consumer test ever conducted of gas turbine-powered cars. Of the total 55 units built (5 prototypes and 50 “production” cars), most were scrapped at the end of a trial period, with only nine remaining in museums and private collections. Though Chrysler’s turbine engine project was terminated in 1977, the Turbine Car was the high point of a three decade project to perfect the engine for practical use.”

    I have a model of that car given to me by a Chrysler dealer (back in…1968? ) when my father bought a new plymouth wagon. Same copper color and black vinyl roof.
