There's a tremendous amount of ground to cover if you want to take on a project like this: An in-depth history of Chrysler Corp.'s engine design that spans 60 years. Getting it accomplished required more than 400, big, hardcover pages with the highest distinction of authorship possible. An honors graduate of Yale, the author spent almost his entire career in Chrysler engine design.

This book chronicles over 75 years of engine design, development, and production at Chrysler Corporation. Every production engine built by Chrysler is covered, with descriptions, pictures, specifications, and timelines provided for each. Each engine is defined in terms of its basic structure (including its cylinder bore spacing, number of main bearings, and valve operation). In addition to the specifications, the book also looks at the personalities behind the engines' development and the vehicles in which the engines were used. From two early (albeit unsuccessful) attempts prior to the incorporation of Chrysler in 1925 through the 1998 merger of Chrysler and Daimler Benz AG, Chrysler Engines 1922-1998 provides the inside story on many landmark engines.

Using text, photos, drawings and tabular materials, the book breaks down the Chrysler engine saga in exceptional detail. The subject engines are gathered into 11 major groupings, beginning with the 4-cylinders of Dodge Brothers and Maxwell. Also included are the gas turbine, truck and military engines as well as the L-head 6 and 8's, the Hemis, Polys and Wedges. 9"x 11". 438 pages
