1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt Concept Car Pictures » Design You Trust
The Chrysler Thunderbolt concept automobile was a revolutionary design when it debuted in the 1950s. It was made of aluminum and featured a retractable, electrically powered hardtop roof, as well as concealed headlights and enclosed wheel wells with no A-pillars.
Inside, the two-seater boasted leather upholstery, while the engine was a 323.5 cubic-inch straight-eight capable of producing 143 horsepower. This power was sent to the rear wheels through a Chrysler Fluid Drive transmission. A total of five Thunderbolts were made and four still exist today, including one at the Walter P. Chrysler Museum in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Each of the five cars was given a unique color scheme.
