From 1955 to the early 1980s, various stylized coats of arms appeared as Chrysler logos, none of which are believed to be the Chrysler (originally Kreussler) family crest. For example, this 1950s New Yorker boasted a coat of arms:
The original Chrysler logo, which vanished after 1954 from all but 1955-1956 Windsors, C300s, and 300Bs with manual transmissions*, and reappeared in 1994, is a rendition of a wax seal with ribbon affixed at the lower right. Its creator, Oliver Clark, said it was set up as a seal to represent quality (symbolizing state fair awards) and “to emphasize the integrity of the car's makers.”
The Chrysler logo is seen in this undated handout image. DaimlerChrysler AG January 29, 2001 announced 26,000 job losses at its ailing Chrysler unit affecting plants in Canada, the U.S., Mexico and South America over the next three years.
