Chrysler and the military: Bomber engines

The B-29 Superfortress was a staple of World War II. Each plane required four Wright Cyclone engines, and Chrysler agreed build them — no factory, no final blueprints, a design with severe cooling problems, and two years before they’d need to make a thousand per month.

Chrysler ended up ahead of schedule, using a custom-made factory in Chicago. They issued a stunning 48,500 change notices as they fixed design and manufacturing problems, using their Superfinish process. They doubled the life of the engines, and built 18,400 of them to Wright’s 13,800 — while cutting the price into less than half of the original cost. Full article.
