"As for beauty, Chrysler now brings to the automobile an entirely new art"- so claimed the firms advertisements for 1929. The new Chryslers did indeed have a fresh and attractive look that was highlighted by the slim profile radiator and fluted hood borrowed directly from Lawrence Pomeroy's Famous Vauxhall design. The Locke custom bodied cars, such as one offered here, are the most desireable of the big Imperial line. This car is a National First Prize Winner in both the Antique Automobiles and Classic Car Clubs of America. It most recently was awarded first in class at the Castle Hill Concourse, Ipswitch Mass, Sept 2001. It had a complete frame off restoration by Walter Seaburg. An interesting feature of the car is the occasional built in rear windshield for the rumble seat passengers. The rear compartment was designed with comfort in mind and has a side door and an attachable top of its own. The Chrysler is fitted with the optional dual trip lights and stainless steel spoke wire wheels. Just a few of these highly sought after roadsters are known to exist. Coachwork by Locke and Co. New York.
