A Brief History of the Chrysler Corporation


His name was Walter P Chrysler and he formed one of the worlds largest automobile manufacturing companies.
He was born in Wamego, KS on April 2 1875.
The other people involved in The Chrysler Corporation were John Francis Dodge and his brother Horace Elgin. In 1892: Walter P. Chrysler was working as a mechanic in a railroad roundhouse in Ellis, KS. While working there he learned how to make his own tools.
In 1901 the Dodge brothers move to Detroit, MI and open a shop on Beaubien Street making bicycles and parts for the auto industry and in 1902 got a contract to build 3,000 transmissions for Olds Motor Works. At the same time Walter P. Chrysler accepts job as manager of the Colorado and Southern shops in Trinidad, CO. In 1903 Dodge brothers equip their plant to build engines for Ford in return for 10% interest in Ford Motor Company. Cancel contract with Olds Motor Works.
By 1907 Walter P. Chrysler has become superintendent of the shops of the Chicago & Great Western Railroad at Oelwein, IA In 1908 Walter P. Chrysler attended the Chicago Auto Show and purchases a Locomobile.
By 1910 the Dodge brothers business had increased enough so that they had to build a 
new plant in Hamtramck, MI
In 1912 Charles W. Nash, president of Buick Motor Company, hired Walter P. Chrysler, as works manager. In July 17 Dodge Brothers Inc. was formed and begin working on bringing out the Dodge Brothers car. By November 14, the First Dodge Brothers car rolls off the line.
When asked why the Dodge Brothers wanted to build their own car, John Dodge replied, "Just think of all the Ford owners who will someday want an automobile."
In the same year Ford started to build it's own engines.
In 1916 Charles W. Nash resigns as president of Buick Motor Company and General Motors Company and is succeeded as president of Buick Motor Company by Walter P. Chrysler.
In 1919 Henry Ford purchased the stock of minority stockholders of Ford Motor Company, including the holdings of John and Horace Dodge.
They suddenly became $19,000,000 richer.
That same year Walter P. Chrysler resigned as president of the Buick Motor Company 
and vice-president of General Motors Corporation.
1920 was a year for Walter P. Chrysler to remember.
He hired Zeder-Skelton-Breer Engineering Co. to design a new car to be produced in the Elizabeth, NJ, plant of the Willys Corporation. That car was the first Chrysler.
Willys-Overland is having financial problems and in order to raise cash to cover debts, the Willys-Overland plant in Elizabeth, NJ is put on the auction block. It, and the prototype Chrysler (considered by the Chrysler group later as the model A), is auctioned off.  William C. Durant used the plant for production of his low-priced Star car while the Chrysler is used as a basis for his Flint line. The Zeder-Skelton-Breer Engineering Co. worked for a time for Durant Motors Inc. transforming the Chrysler car into the Flint. 
In 1921 bankers approach Walter P. Chrysler to save Maxwell and Chalmers.
The Maxwell Reorganization Committee is forced to put the company on the auction block and a new Maxwell Motor Corporation is incorporated in West Virginia, and Walter P. Chrysler becomes chairman of the board.
At the same time the Dodge Brothers and Graham Brothers sign an agreement whereby Graham Brothers will use Dodge Brothers engines and sell their trucks through Dodge Brothers dealers.
Fred M. Zeder, Owen R. Skelton, and Carl Breer head a team to design a new car, the soon-to-be Chrysler Model B. The car is introduced to the public at the 1923 New York Auto Show.
The year 1923 saw a few more things starting to come together.
The 1924 Chalmers is introduced in the fall of 1923, with 4-wheel hydraulic brakes, a test bed for the brakes on the new Chrysler. Chalmers ceases production and is replaced by the Chrysler and the Dodge Brothers introduced an all-steel sedan body.
The banking firm, Dillon, Read & Co. purchased Dodge Brothers Inc. from the widows of the Dodge brothers. 
On June 26, 1925 after two years of stock acquisition by Walter Chrysler and Harry Bronner, the Chrysler Corporation is incorporated in Delaware and takes over the Maxwell Motor Corporation and ends production of the Maxwell in May. Walter P. Chrysler is president and chairman of the board.
In May 1928 May - The Plymouth Motor Corporation and the DeSoto Motor Corporation are formed. Walter P. Chrysler is president of Plymouth Motor Corporation and Joseph E. Fields is president 
of DeSoto Motor Corporation. 
On July 31 1928 Chrysler purchases Dodge Brothers Inc., manufacturers of Dodge Brothers cars and trucks, and Graham Brothers trucks. Main plants and forge facilities in Hamtramck, MI. Walter P. Chrysler became president of Dodge Brothers.
In September of the same year The Fargo Motor Corporation was formed again with 
Walter P. Chrysler as president.
In 1930 Graham Brothers Truck and Dodge Brothers Truck become Dodge Truck and the
Dodge Brothers car becomes Dodge.
1934 saw the introduction of Airflows, the DeSoto Six, Chrysler Eight, Chrysler Imperial Eight, 
Chrysler Custom Imperial Eight.
1935 saw Chrysler set up different divisions.
Plymouth Motor Corporation became Plymouth Division, Dodge Brothers Corporation became Dodge Division, DeSoto Motor Corporation became DeSoto Division and Chrysler Motor Corporation became Chrysler Sales Division.
That was the beginning of what we now know as the Chrysler Corporation.

The originial story posted a few years ago
This 55 Chrysler has an interesting story to tell.
The picture was submitted by Lynn Ramage and it was owned by her father, Ken Triller.
I'll let her tell the rest of the story.
"My dad had this 1955 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe Convertible forever. It was Emerald green with a white leather and green upholstered interior with a 331 Hemi with only 52,000 original miles to her. My mom drove it daily and bumped a little ding in the front bumper so he took the car off her and put her into a smaller Ford. The car sat and was given to me at age 16 where I sanded it down and started restoration. My dad stuck it in a friends barn and there it has been sitting for the past 20 some years now. My dad recently died and didn't tell me where the barn was, I have an idea it is close to the New Hope PA area. I called all the junk yards around and nothing has come into the yards in 
the past 2 decades that they recall up there. My title has only 10 digits the the bureau of records don't go back that far.  I search the net in hopes but still nothing has turned up.
Here is a picture of her in her prime and I was in at 5 years old. 
I live in Bucks County, PA USA.  Near New Hope where the car was last seen. My dad's friend's  was Don Newman who owned the barn and collected cars. He had over 40 Cadillac's from the 40's - 50's.  Don and his wife divorced in 1995 when my car was last seen, the farm was sold and he moved the car (my dad was the only person who knew
where the car went to and didn't tell me, so I have the title to it...but the car is MIA. I can totally ID it from various markings. My dad's business was antique car restoration."

His family owned this Chrysler when they lived in 
Sligo, Ireland in 1953/4. It was sold and converted
into a hearse and was in daily use until 1971. As 
children we called it "the laughing car" because of 
the grille. One day my father drove our family to the beach at Rosses Point (5 miles from Sligo town). 
I went back in the late afternoon with my father to collect my siblings, and as the car turned a corner, 
the left hand front tyre blew out.We did not even
realise the danger as my father struggled to keep the
car straight. A policeman who was watching said to 
my father, "You did  a terrific job to control the
car!" The car was originally registered in County Kildare.
