Chrysler must be on a role.
First Sergio Marchionne indicates Chrysler succeeded in making a profit during the second quarter and then a 1952 Chrysler “Thomas Special” goes for $780,000 during some spirited bidding at the RM Auctions annual auction at Meadowbrook Hall in Rochester Hills, Michigan.
The successful bid was substantially over what the RM Catalog expected the car would fetch. The successful bid came in via phone, RM officials said.
However, the Chrysler had a unique “provenance,” noted RM spokeswoman Amy Christie. It is one of the most stylistically important designs of in American automotive history.
