    All Chrysler cars used valve-in-block engines, not the overhead valve engines. Chrysler’s valve-in-head engines were old by 1946, and were less efficient that the overhead valve designs which would supercede them. But the Chrysler engines produced peak power at low engine speed, which meant less stress and longer engine life.

    All Chrysler bodies were built by Briggs Manufacturing. On most models, the rear seat was forward of the rear axle, not on top of it, which allowed additional passenger room. There are numerous small details even in the low priced models which suggest the engineers were paying attention and not looking for the cheapest way to build the car.
