Chrysler 1963 Turbine Car
|Many consider the 1963 Chrysler Turbine Car the most valuable automobile in the Museum of Transportation’s Collection. Of the fifty-five that were built, only nine remain and of those nine, only three still run. The Museum is proud to own the only operational Chrysler Turbine Car on public exhibit.
The Turbine Car can run on virtually any fuel, including cooking and heating oil, though leaded gasoline would leave deposits that caused damage. The paint is a unique root beer color, also know as “Turbine bronze.” For more information on this fascinating vehicle, please follow this link for additional history.
