Rare 1963 Chrysler Turbine - Amazing Gas Turbine Powered Classic
I thought you'd like a look at this ultra-rare, 1963 Chrysler Turbine. This amazing automobile was built by Chrysler to display their technological mastery. It's powered by a compact gas turbine that idles at around 22,000 rpm and runs on nearly any combustible liquid fuel... kerosene, unleaded gas, diesel, tequila, etc. It pumps out 130 HP and 425 Ft-Lbs of Torque and requires very little maintenance. It's ignited by a single spark plug, requires no oil changes, has approx. 80% fewer parts than a typical piston engine, and it's self-cooling..requiring no radiator or anti-freeze. Chrysler originally built 55 of these cars, but later reclaimed most of them and had them destroyed. Now there are only 3 working examples left in the world. This particular car is owned by the Museum of Transportation, on Barrett Station Rd. in St. Louis, Missouri. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
