Bill Geary's Chrysler Turbine Car
(click the image to go back)
This one goes back a couple of years. In between some
of his labor-intensive, highly detailed and working featured
models, Bill Geary some times builds just for fun. This
JoHan Chrysler Turbine car is one of those fun builds.
Though Chrysler ran their Turbine Car program from 1954
to 1980, the 1963 Ghia-bodied hardtop version designed
by Elwood Engel is the defining image of a turbine car
for most of us. Engel who was involved in designing Ford's
Thunderbird had recently moved to Chrysler where he replace
Virgil Exner as Head of Styling.
