1923 Flint 5 Passenger Special Touring

WC Durant acquired the assets of the bankrupt Willys Corp including a prototype design which Walter Chrysler also wanted. The prototype when developed by engineers Breer-Skelton-Zeder represented the finest auto technology of the time and the trio ultimately introduced the 1924 Chrysler. Durant improved on the design to resemble a downsized Locomobile to compete with Buick and named it Flint after his hometown.

Flint’s production started in June 1923 with a 65HP, 6-cylinder Continental engine with full pressure lubrication. By installing tubular framing mounted on the inner side of the standard frame the Flint’s very stiff frame also eliminated wood frame creaks.
