From Wikipedia:

The Chrysler Royal was an automobile produced by the Chrysler division of the Chrysler Corporation between 1937 to 1942 and 1946 to 1950. The Royal represented the entry-level Chrysler during its production, making it the most affordable Chrysler model. The Royal was replaced at the end of 1950 model year by the Chrysler Windsor.

The Chrysler Royal name was revived by Chrysler Australia in 1957 for a locally produced model based on the 1953 Plymouth.
The name was also applied as a trim level of the Chrysler Newport from 1970-72 It would not be reused.

    nice capture Mike & kudos for making the effort to use a tripod. I often kick myself after the fact when I look at a shot and say to myself “if I’d only used a tripod

  • Cheers, Brock, and many thanks. I use a tripod for everything – but you do miss the odd shot, unfortunately…

    All it needs is a couple gangsters hanging off the running boards! Great shot, Mike! Love the colour!

  • Thanks, Deb. Coupla gangsters on the running boards, eh? Might not even be noticed in downtown Cornwall. Cops might pull them over for no seat belts, though…

    Cool Shot!!
    I used to own, what was known in Oz, as a Valiant VC (1967). I was told it was originally a Canadian designed Chrysler. Came out with a 273 V8 with 3 speed Auto. I put a 318 Fireball motor in mine coupled to a Toyota 5 speed manual. At the legal road speed limit of 100kph (63mph) in 5th gear, the engine was only doing about 1,800 rpm. Redline on the motor (after a few small modifications) was 5,400 rpm giving it around 250kph (155mph) top speed . . . A fun car but with a very expensive habit of wearing out it’s front end components, front suspension was torsion bar type. Might have been the wide tires I had on it but it seemed I was always replacing the pitman arm, idler arm, tie rod ends and ball joints.
    Used to go like stink though . . .

  • Thanks, Hugh. Sounds like a screamin’ demon you built. Usually you can blame the tyres – had oversize on my Spit and went through pretty much the same problems till I went back to stock.
