WPC Museum opens the Master Tech Files

The Walter P. Chrysler Museum is digging deep into the archives to host From Chrysler’s Vintage Master Tech Files on Wednesday, October 26 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Presented by Steve Shugg, retired Director of Mopar Sales and Field Operations, the program will spotlight the early days of Chrysler’s monthly Master Tech course, which has trained dealership technicians on diagnostics and service procedures since 1947. Master Tech itself has evolved along with automotive technology and Shugg will offer an entertaining look back at program instruction via filmstrips, along with early training films and TV ads. Guests will also be treated to a display of Gold Tool Awards, course booklets and vintage projection equipment.

Along with the entertainment, From Chrysler’s Vintage Master Tech Files will offer valuable information for anyone restoring a vintage vehicle. Attendees will receive comprehensive takeaways of Master Tech courses available online as well as Gold Tool Awards issued over the years.

Master Tech — now accessible online — is believed to be the longest running program of its kind in the industry and subjects have changed over the years to reflect innovations in automotive technology. For example, the first Master Tech topic released more than six decades ago was titled “How to Check and Adjust Distributor Advance Mechanisms.” Today’s vehicles use electronically controlled ignition systems and many no longer even have distributors.

Registration is $13 in advance and $15 at the door with reduced admission of $11 and $13, respectively, for Museum members.

Advance registration for From Chrysler’s Vintage Master Tech Files is accepted online at www.wpchryslermuseum.org, via e-mail at events@wpchryslermuseum.org or by phone at 248-944-0450.
