Artifact of the Month - 1963 Chrysler Turbine Car


Many consider  the 1963 Chrysler Turbine Car the most valuable automobile in the Museum of Transportation's Collection.  Of the fifty-five that were built, only nine remain and of those nine, only three still run.  The Museum is proud to own the only operational Chrysler Turbine Car on public exhibit.    

April brings two opportunities to learn more about this fantastic car and hear the high-pitched whirl of its engine.

Start Your Engine...
On April 8th, from 11 am - 12 Noon, Mike Eberhardt, Turbine Car Expert, will be in the Earl C. Lindburg Automobile Building to start this rare engine for Museum guests.  Mike will be available to answer questions about the Turbine Car.  Jay Leno stopped by to see the Chrysler Turbine Car.  We hope you do too!  Regular Museum Admission applies.



The MOT Chrysler Turbine Car will be on exhibit and started on a regular basis at the 56th Annual Easter Concours d' Elegance Show presented by the Horseless Carriage Club of Missouri on Sunday, April 16th, from 11:30 am - 4:30 pm, in Forest Park.
Next Restoration Project Determined

The Baltimore and Ohio 173  
"Camel" is the next MOT artifact set for restoration.  Built in 1873 for the B&O Railroad, it was donated by Purdue University to the Museum of Transportation in 1951.  The unique design placed the cab directly on top of the boiler.  It is one of two surviving "camels" of this type.  The other resides at the B&O Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.

More information coming soon...
