Three final museum tours

by David Zatz on

The Walter P. Chrysler Museum was closed to the public after December 18’s final day. The exhibits and cars are going into storage, and the building will be repurposed to office space.

Walter P. Chrysler Museum

Some may ask why office space is needed now, when it was not needed back in 1998, when Chrysler Corporation was still alive and thriving. One answer is the closure of the huge Plymouth Road Office Complex, formerly the Kelvinator factory, which housed the Jeep and truck engineering group. Those people had to go somewhere, at that “somewhere” is the CTC.

On the museum’s final day, Patrick Rall created a photo tour of each part of the museum, in case you couldn’t attend — capturing the cars and the displays alike. We also have a page of sights from the museum’s first “final day,”  in 2012, before it was re-opened to the public; and a guided tour from 2010, led by the former head of Chrysler engine tuning, who worked on the 426 Hemi, 383 and 340, slant six, and Aussie Hemi Six.
