Walter P. Chrysler Museum

This museum is built on the grounds of the DaimlerChrysler headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan. The museum surrounds about 75 cars, trucks and Jeeps with displays depicting Chrysler's victories and struggles. Visitors are greeted by a 75-foot-tall metal tower holding three Chrysler concept cars, including a turbine-powered experiment from 1963. Three floors of the museum each house cars from different eras. From the gleam of vehicles aloft a multi-tiered platform to the colorful touch-screen monitors and the glow of the movie theater, the Museum provides three levels of illuminating experiences for car buffs and history aficionados alike.

Highlights include:
Chrysler's early years - as well as the companies it acquired - are detailed in vivid words, pictures and showcase vehicles. Vehicles on display include the 1902 Rambler, 1909 Hudson and famous Chrysler Six, the first vehicle carrying the company name.

The car culture of the 1950s, including a life-size diorama of those heady days when Dad would surprise the family by arriving home with the latest model from the local dealership.

The beauties of Chrysler's performance heritage: the 1957 Plymouth Fury, the 1964 "Color Me Gone" Dodge Ramcharger 300, the sporty 1970 Plymouth Hemi 'Cuda and the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona with its high-flying spoiler, among others.
