It was in 1975 that Chrysler introduced its first “small car,” the Cordoba. Before that, the brand had never ventured too far adrift from a model lineup of generously proportioned luxury cars that were based on a uniform full-size platform.
Significant changes to Chrysler’s product line would come quickly after the Cordoba was introduced. A line of LeBaron midsize vehicles was introduced for 1977, and, among other new models, a Chrysler version of the Dodge Daytona sport coupe–dubbed Laser–rolled out for 1984.
Today, the Chrysler lineup is comprised of just two models: the Pacifica minivan, and the true-to-form 300 large sedan.
Though there’s no effective way to summarize the history of a brand as storied as Chrysler in just a handful of images, we thought we’d give it a try anyway. Below please find 15 classic Chrysler ads, each of which we found worthy of a closer look.
