    Little Tim Allen of Joliet, Illinois, is explained some of the refinements of the new Chrysler Special Sports Coupe by Walker Way, executive of the Chrysler Corp. Designed in America and handcrafted by Ghia in Turin, Italy, the car stood only 55 inches high, and the body featured the low sweeping lines found on that era's European sports cars. It was built on a modified Chrysler chassis and wore 17-inch wire wheels wrapped in white wall tires.
