63 Chrysler turbine car. Chrysler is said to have built 5 prototypes, and 50 “production” cars that they gave to consumers to test and give feedback on how the turbines acted in the field.
When the testing was done all were destroyed but 9 or so, of the them only 6 ran. Given to museums or collectors few are ever seen, I have seen two, one in the Henry Ford Museum and one in the Chrysler Museum. There is video footage on the internet showing some of them being destroyed, I get tears in my eyes watching.
They were destroyed for a couple reasons, mainly because the liability if they got into the wrong hands.
Jay Leno purchased one from the Chrysler museum a few year back $$$$$$$?
They would run on diesel fuel, unleaded gas, kerosene, jet fuel, vegetable oil and tequila. They would wind up to 44,500 rpm. Try that in your big block!!!!
