Chrysler Royal (about a 1961 model)

Scanned from really dirty slide found in the garage. I washed 90% of the dirt off with Windex!


The basic Chrysler Royal started as what we in North America would call a 1954 Plymouth. That model was built in Australia for '55 and '56. There were also Dodge and DeSoto models with only trim differences. In 1957 the lineup was reduced to one model, the Chrysler Royal, which picked up some Forward Look styling cues. They look really awkward to those of us familiar with the sleek models of 1957 on.
