Introduced in 1984, Chrysler’s truly insubordinate front-wheel-drive minivans were an present success – appealing and unsentimental alternatives to a normal hire car and full-sized vans.
The judgment of a compress people-mover with limit interior and smallest interior measure had been around given a 1970s, though problems with entrance tallness to accommodate passengers of all sizes and altogether tallness to fit in a family garage kept a thought on a behind burner.
With a transverse-mounted front-drive engine and low, prosaic floor, Chrysler’s remarkably versatile new “K” height record solved all such problems.
