1966 Chrysler Corporation factories and other facilities

Just how big was Chrysler Corporation in 1966? They were big... and not just in cars. Today, when Chrysler has a single plant making all its sedans and coupes, the size of the company back in 1966 is almost impossible to believe.

Defense and space program plants (1966)

  • Detroit Tank Plant (Warren, MI) - built for World War II; the Army still maintains engineering offices in Warren
  • Scranton Defense (Eynon, PA)

Rocket Spacecraft Missile Aerospace engineering Rocket-powered aircraft

  • Defense Engineering (Center Line, MI)
  • Florida Missile/Space Operations (Cape Kennedy) - Chrysler had a part of the building for their work
  • Huntsville Space Operations Plant (AL) - the first project was Redstone missiles but they later did Moon rocket and M1 tank telemetry
  • Michigan Missile Plant (Sterling Township, MI)
  • Space Divison Michoud Plant (New Orleans, LA) - an absolutely massive facility
