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.

 1960 Plymouth Valiant Sedan
 This car is owned by Evan Atkinson.
Evan had the following to say about his car.
"Originally from Alameda, CA this Valiant was used regularly from 1960-1969 until the water pump broke.  Unable to find a correct replacement part at the time, the then-owners parked it in their front yard, where it sat and deterioriated for nearly 34 years before being restored to it's present condition.  It is the top-of-the-line, 6 passenger V200 model with optional power steering which only 8% 
of all 1960 Valiants had.  It has 68K original miles on the odometer."

1961 Plymouth Fury Convertible
 This car is owned by Ronald Versteeg from The Netherlands. Ronald found this 32 years ago in a building next to where he worked. It had been there for 16 years. However the owner was unwilling to sell the car at that time. Ronald kept checking every month and was told if they sold it he would be given first chance to buy it. Recently they decided to sell the car. The car is all original except for the brakes and tires. It has 49,000 KM on it. 
One hours cleaning got it looking like you see it.
Now that is a find even of it took 32 years.

Besides the chrome wheels, I also had a set of stock hubcaps. They were a little rough so I kept my eyes open for some replacements. They only built about 13000 of these cars so the caps are pretty rare. While I was doing my round the continent travel, Icame across a fellow in Maine who had a pretty good inventory of caps. I had searched all over for a set, or even one. As he was getting ready to go look for them a fellow came in
looking for a set for a 1966 SS Chevelle. The vendor came back with a couple big packages wrapped up. I said to the other fellow, "Looks like he found some for you, he most certainly won't have any for me". Well, he set the packages down and said, " I don't have any for the Chevelle but I have 5 for the Sport Fury" I could see the dollar signs in his eyes and asked how much. $80 for a set of four and he would throw in the extra for free ! Done deal, they were all in very nice shape. After they were securley in my pickup we had a talk about cars etc. I opined that I figured that was a pretty good deal as they were pretty rare and I had looked for them all over the country. He said that was true but I should
remember that he didnt have someone looking for them every day. I was the first !

As you can see, it was after I had it repainted in metal flake, with the sides paneled, and the roof laced in silver, so it is no longer a stock paint job, but due the rarity of the car and the fact they are so good looking!

"1971 Plymouth Road Runner, 78K miles all original except for the tires and shocks...
and a 1999 Chrysler 300 M i use as a daily driver,..

My first car was a 1966 Dodge 880 Four door hard top,.. I owned it in 1978 but couldn't afford to keep it,.. I've also had two Dodge B-vans a 1974 Dodge Trades man and a 1989 Dodge Ram Van, both were the short wheelbase models with 318s and were designed by most of the guys who designed the B-body cars BTW:
and a 1989 Chysler New Yawker Mark Cross edition, which I bought for a song and was a 14K mile one owner vehicle (a church transport literally) which I proceeded to drive into the ground in one year... I replaced it with the M, literally ten times the car, the K car was...
I long for a white 300 F convert... sigh,..
