Next to the Y-job and LeSabre, the most easily recognized American concept car is probably the 1941 Chrysler Thunderbolt. The car was designed by Alex Tremulis (of Briggs, formerly of Cord) and six of them were built by legendary coachmaker LeBaron. Introduced in 1941, the six Thunderbolts made the rounds to Chrysler dealerships throughout North America before being sold to lucky buyers at the end of the year. All six of the cars are still in existence and most believe it is because of their sale to private collectors.
