The only remaining “Springtime Edition” 1955 Imperial Newport Coupe
In the Spring and Summer of 1955, Imperial offered a special “Springtime” color combination of a Sunburst
Yellow body with a Platinum top. Very few of these were built and, according to the records of the Walter P.
Chrysler Club and the Imperial Club, this is the only one remaining.
This Imperial was built on July 19, 1955 and is one of only 3,418 Imperial Newport Coupes built. It’s equipped
with power windows, power seats, Town & Country radio with rear speaker, and rare factory air conditioning. The
fresh air scoops for the A/C are mounted on top of the rear fenders and the A/C evaporator and blower are located
in the trunk.
The 1955 Imperial, advertised as the “Flagship of the Forward Look” and as “The Finest Car America Has yet
Produced”, was the first Imperial completely designed by Virgil Exner, Styling Director of Chrysler Corporation.
It was also the first Imperial built on its own dedicated production facility within the new Imperial Division of
the Chrysler Corporation.
Chrysler Historical Services provided us with the Production Record (see picture) certifying that this Imperial was
delivered with the stated options and was one of the original Sunburst Yellow body with a Platinum top
“Springtime” cars.

Chrysler recalling 382k Ram HD diesel pickups, 184k SUVs

Wed, 29 Oct 2014 10:17:00 EST

Between GM's ignition switches and Takata's airbags, it's been a big year for recalls, but they keep rolling in. The latest comes from Chrysler, which has announced a pair of recalls for certain heavy-duty pickups and SUVs.
The first issue revolves around the 6.7-liter Cummins diesel engine available in the 2010-2014 Ram HD trucks, including 2500 and 3500 series pickups as well as 4500 and 5500 series chassis cabs. In the affected units, "a terminal connector near the fuel heater may be subject to friction-induced corrosion," according to the first of the two announcements from Chrysler below.
The problem could result in overheating and fuel leakage. Chrysler launched its investigation following cases of overheating, none of which actually started a fire, much less an injury or accident. As a precautionary measure, however, Chrysler is instructing service technicians to replace the terminals on an estimated 381,876 Ram units around the world - the vast majority of those (314,704) registered in the US, another 59,432 in Canada, 1,803 in Mexico and 5,937 abroad.

NHTSA releases updated Takata airbag recalled cars list, but it still has errors

Wed, 22 Oct 2014 13:31:00 EST



Unfortunately, the government's list still contains errors.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued an updated list of vehicle models that it's urging owners to repair under the mushrooming Takata airbag inflator recall. The latest version adds vehicles from new automakers like Subaru and Ford that are missing from the original announcement, and it also removes erroneous entries from General Motors, leaving only the 2005 Saab 9-2X (a reskinned Subaru WRX), and the 2003-2005 Pontiac Vibe, a joint project with Toyota.

Chrysler 200 subtitles performance in latest round of advertising

Mon, 27 Oct 2014 19:01:00 EST

Every once in a while, we come across a car video narrated in a foreign language and subtitled in English. They usually center on foreign-made automobiles, but this latest series of videos comes straight from Detroit.
Airing for the first time during's NFL broadcasts, these four commercials for the 2015 Chrysler 200 were produced by Wieden + Kennedy Portland - the same advertising firm that created the now-legendary Eminem spot for the last-generation 200.
Each clip in the "Ready to Take on the World" campaign highlights a different aspect of the American sedan and is narrated in Japanese, German or Swedish - each with English subtitles - associating the 200's Japanese level of quality, German performance and Swedish safety standards. But while the clips are ostensibly set in Japan, Germany and Sweden, Automotive News reports that they were actually filmed at home in the US.
