Wood-Burning Chrysler

The Chrysler Royal was produced by Chrysler from 1937 to 1942 and 1926 to 1950. The Royal was the base trim Chrysler during its production. In 1939 Chrysler contracted with Hayes Bodies of Michigan to build 1,000 coupe bodies, 373 of which were Chrysler Royal Windsors. The main difference between the coupes were the changes made to the windows, making the the Royal appear 'Art Deco.' The Royal was equipped with a new design six cylinder engine that developed 95 horsepower.

In the case of THIS car, it’s hard to confirm the model because it’s windows are occupied with wooden fuel – which also replaced the 6 cylinder engine with a uniquely grown 6-branch tree.
