A Journey Through History with the Chrysler Six

Walter P. Chrysler had a desire to create things. His life was about precision, flair, impact and production. Chrysler worked in the railroad industry before he became a laborer at Buick, eventually becoming President.

However, his designs didn’t truly shine until he founded Chrysler in the 1920s. One of the first cars built by Chrysler and ex-Studebaker engineers Fred Zeder, Owen Skelton and Carl Breer was the Chrysler Six in 1924. At only $1,565, it featured two noteworthy innovations, a light, powerful, high-compression six-cylinder engine and the first time four-wheel hydraulic brakes were standard on a passenger car. The Chrysler Six also sported aluminum pistons, replaceable oil and air filters, full-pressure lubrication, tubular front axles, shock absorbers and indirect interior lighting.
