Lego Chrysler Hovercar

This unusual-looking chap has got himself one hell of a ride. According to the brochure, “The Chrysler 300XH is the next great luxury hover car for the discerning driver. Featuring a powerful 614 cubic inch wedge combustion engine driving two Sirius Cyberdine Industries 4982HL magnetrons, the 300XH gives a decadently smooth ride with ample power available at a touch of the accelerator.” Well we’re sold. Where do we sign Tim Henderson?

Black Beauty

Lego Green Hornet Black Beauty

Nope, not that curious entry in your Dad’s internet browsing history but this, the heavily modified 1965 Chrysler Imperial Crown sedan as used in The Green Hornet TV show from 1967.

The Green Hornet may be yet another comic-based superhero that we don’t give a toss about, but the car is something rather special. Featuring rockets, silent-running mode, and a flying drone thingumy (long before the word ‘drone’ became the media’s favourite word), Black Beauty was nearly as tricked-out as the other famous crime-fighting car of the time, the Batmobile.

This neat Lego replica of the comic book star comes from TLCB regular Ralph Savelsberg (aka Mad Physicist) and there’s more to see of Black Beauty, The Green Hornet, and Kato at his photostream via the link above.

Surf ‘n Turf

Lego 1948 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible

We thought the Chrysler Town & Country was a horrible American minivan, but it turns out that in 1948 it was something far more interesting. This gorgeous ’48 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible comes from newcomer Velocites, and it features some of the nicest wood and metal work we’ve seen on a Town scale car. There’s more to see at Velocites’ photostream – click the link above to make the jump to ’48.

New York New York

Lego Chrysler New YorkerThis wonderful Model Team 1968 Chrysler New Yorker was discovered by one of our Elves on MOCpages. Featuring opening doors, trunk and hood, plenty of detail, and yet still robust enough for an Elf to zoom around the office without fear of breaking it and being thrown outside by the ears, it’s the perfect blend of playability an aesthetics. Jonathan Derksen is the barista responsible, and you can see more of his New York classic on MOCpages here.
