Chrysler Newport Dual Cowl Phaeton (1941) body by LeBaron
The 1940/1941 Chrysler Newport-Phaetons were the first ever Chrysler show car. It was designed by Ralph Roberts of Chrysler and LeBaron built the cars. Similar to the 1940/1941 Thunderbolt show car, five of these wonderful automobiles was built, one of which Walter P. kept as a personal car.

The Phaetons were built on the New Yorker frame and featured an integrated aluminum body and the aircraft-style cockpit, with dual fold-down windshields. And as with the Thunderbolt, the Newport Phaetons sported hide-away headlights.
