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.
