Chrysler has been one of the most terrific automobile manufacturers to date. For almost a century, Chrysler products are considered to be some of the most competitive and sought after models in the history. Some modern popular Chrysler models include the PT Cruiser, Sebring (sedan, coupe and convertible), 300, Pacifica and Town & Country. However, as the old cliche goes, you can't win them all, so there were also some models which are short of success. Nevertheless, Chrysler automobiles will always be tagged as among the brilliantly engineered vehicles in the industry and this is true with the Chrysler Royal.
The Chrysler Royal is an automobile model that was introduced and produced from 1937 through 1942, and from 1946 until 1950 when it was finally replaced by the Chrysler Windsor. The Royal characterizes the base trim Chrysler during its era turning out to be the cheapest Chrysler model that time. However, there was also a Chrysler Royal lineup in the Australian Production. It was called the Chrysler Royal AP1. Such model was an excellent combination of the elements and threesome characteristics of the Plymouth Belvedere, Dodge Kingsway and DeSoto Diplomat. It was introduced in 1957.
In 1958, a redesigned Royal was introduced as a 1959 model. It was called as the Chrysler Royal AP2. Such automobile was said to have the most controversial styling change. Imagine the use of a chrome-surrounded spear akin to the Sportone 1957 American Plymouth Fury in replacement of the AP1s DeSoto-like side trim, matched with the fins on top of the high fins. Such styling was patterned from the 1957 through 1959 Dodges. Also, a fresh horizontal bar grille based on a loop enclosing the parking lights on either end is seen on this vehicle. Further, it had a reversed block and script Chrysler designations both on the hood and quarter panel, and a letter V at the grilles center (for V8 engine Royals).
