Founded in the 1920's by Walter P Chrysler, the Chrysler Corporation has continued to grow throughout its various world-wide markets. Chrysler USA includes brands such as Dodge, Plymouth as well as its own brand name. Chrysler also established production facilities around the world, including Australia.
Chrysler Australia produced a range of rugged, US style cars that were ideally suited to the unique conditions of Australia. Most models featured large, lazy V8 engines and a choice of saloon or estate car bodies. During the late 1990's the US company merged with German giant Daimler Benz making this one of the most powerful companies in the world.
