Walter Chrysler first introduced the Chrysler automobile which had features like six-cylinder, affordable price range, carburetted air filter, compression engine oil filter and full-pressure lubrication. Later in the year 1926, four-cylinder Chryslers were introduced that created huge sales figures and the company secured the second position in terms of its sales from 1936 to 1949.
