Space Travel: 1959 Chrysler Windsor
May 27, 2011 § Leave a comment
From some time in the 1950s through the ’60s and maybe even into the early ’70s, the “space age” had a hold on the popular American imagination. In architecture, design, TV, automobiles, etc., the romance of space travel influenced the look of many an item. Here you see Chrysler’s full-size Windsor in all its glory, from an ad that appeared in Time Magazine.
And check out these futuristic concept cars. They don’t make them like this anymore. Well, they didn’t really make them then, either. But at least they played around with the ideas.
