1924 Chrysler Vehicle Collection:

The Chrysler Six was given the model name "B-70" to reflect its top speed of 70 mph, which was, at the time, high-end performance. But there was a big difference between the Chrysler Six and other vehicles with similar horsepower: price. The Chrysler Six cost significantly less while still providing leading engineering and luxury features.
Priced at $1,565 the Chrysler Six featured two significant innovations - a light, powerful, high-compression six-cylinder engine and the first use of four-wheel hydraulic brakes in a moderately priced vehicle. The well-equipped Chrysler Six also featured aluminum pistons, replaceable oil and air filters, full-pressure lubrication, tubular front axles, shock absorbers and indirect interior lighting. Other progressive features included a glazed instrument panel (instead of individual gauges), and wide seats with a large rear compartment. In short, the 1924 Chrysler was an immediate design and engineering icon.
