Lot #687 - 90hp, 273.7cid L-head inline 8 cylinder engine, 3-speed manual transmission with automatic vacuum clutch, solid front and live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs and Lockheed 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. A high-style junior Chrysler, Former AACA Award Winner, well-equipped with accessories and options, six wire wheel car, upholstery and wood grain dashboard are original. There were only 226 of these Business coupes manufactured in 1933. This car runs and drives great. It is an older restoration. The Royal Eight represented Chrysler's entry-level 8 cylinder line for 1933, but one would never have known, looking at it, that it was anything other than a full-fledged luxury car. Long before other manufacturers, "the engineering company" recognized the importance of high-end design across an entire line. As a result, the Royal sported Chrysler's sweeping new fenders, a sporty, slanted vee'd windshield, single bar bumpers, an angular radiator and generally more streamlined looks, as well as rear-opening doors that added a hint of glamour. Engineering was not overlooked of course, as Chrysler buyers had come to expect the best. The Delco-Remy ignition was standard, as were the "Floating Power" rubber engine mounts, the automatically controlled shock absorbers, the 4-wheel hydraulic brakes that were supplied by Lockheed and an automatic vacuum clutch, which made driving the Royal Eight a breeze. It all added up to a car that, with prices in the $1,000 to $1,500 range, was a virtually unrivaled bargain. There were few automobiles built in Detroit that offered up so much for so little money. The Business Coupe offered here was the recipient of an extremely high-quality restoration that occurred some years ago and it still wears a badge from the AACA First Prize that it won following completion of the work.
