They were built at least partially under a government grant. The grant may have required the cars to be destroyed or otherwise disposed of, not sold to the general public. They were given to particular people to drive around in public to judge their suitability, but those were specially selected individuals and Chrysler did all maintenance on the cars. I don't recall the details, I'm sure with a little searching they can be found, the cars are rather notorious!
55 were built, only nine survived. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chrysler_Turbine_Car -- Frank Swygert Editor - American Motors Cars Magazine www.amc-mag.com _______________________________________________ AMC-list mailing list AMC-list@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx http://list.amc-list.com/listinfo.cgi/amc-list-amc-list.com
