Los Angeles Times Staff Writers With the help of three ex-Studebaker engineers, Kansas-born Walter Chrysler's first car went on sale in 1924. Priced at $1,565, the Chrysler Six had "a light, powerful, high-compression six-cylinder engine and the first use of four-wheel hydraulic brakes in a moderately priced vehicle," according to the Chrysler media site. The company would later be the umbrella for classic American labels like Plymouth, DeSoto, Dodge, Jeep and AMC. As we watch Chrysler struggle to survive, we enlisted the help of Phil Skinner, collector car market editor for Kelley Blue Book, to take a look at some of Chrysler's more memorable moments.
