FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 1940 "Thimderbolt" To Be Displayed At Seay's Saturday A radically new Chrysler convertible coupe known as the "Thunderbolt." which is creating a sensation wherever shown, will be on display Saturday at the Seay.Motor Co. showroom where it may be seen from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. Local mo-. torfcts will be interested in seeing this latest and most sensational development of advanced aerodv- namic design. In this car, Chrysler Corporation engineers see a forecast of the future motor car and a new milepost Jn the history of aerodynamics and "fashioned-by-function" design. The design is the result of a collaboration between Ralph Roberts and Chrysler engineers. Mr. Roberts' work has influenced motor car design for 20 years all over the world. Chrysler engineers predict that the new "Thimdsrbol't" is destined to have an even arveater influence on design than did the original Chrysler Airflow. In the "Thunderbolt," it is pointed out by Chrysler engineers, efficiency and beauty go hand in hand. The full-width, sleek-sided body is a radical departure In pleasure car design. The low. broad hood cuts down frontal resistance aand the smooth-swept surfaces of front and rear, the flush glass and curved, sloping one-piece windshield and the absence of running boards reduce turbulence when the car is in motion. • Chrome is used only to give emphasis to functional lines and there is an entire absence of "gimcracks" and gingerbread work. There is a notable lack of bulges, ribs, corrugations and other devices that have no part in functional design. Broadness of beam in this car means great interior roominess. A unique feature of the "Thunderbolt" is.that it has a steel top which completely disappears at the touch of a button. This is a radical advance in design since the owner has the choice of riding in an open or closed car and at the same time be provided with all of the safety of steel top construction. A single button controls the raising and lowering of the top. Automatic push buttons also control the raising and lowering of the window glasses on the "Thunderbolt." Headlamps on the "Thunderbolt" have retractable lids and a perfectly fixed mounting.. The lamp unit is the regular Sealed Beam [| unit but the lamps are mounted in p' the front fenders in. a thoroughly streamlined. fashion. Further streamlining is evidenced by the fact that:, every accessory' on the "Thunderbo;lt*kbody is- in-builfc-ij- cerise plates^We: Amounted, under glass and doors"- open at a touch of a button.
