Chrysler Offers Major Style Changes for 1962

Sept. 6, 1961 - The Chrysler Corporation unveiled today its first new styling theme since 1957. Chrysler's soaring, wedge-shaped fins started a trend that year, which was later abandoned by the rest of the industry. Chrysler has now jettisoned fins and gone to the other extreme - soft, rounded lines. Longer hoods and shorter rear decks, accented headlamps set in chrome-capped wells, bold grills, and flashing ornamental trim mark the company's 1962 compacts and lower-priced standard cars.
