Chrysler's True Blue 2004 Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 3 Kicks Off Woodward Dream Cruise

Chrysler Adds to PT Cruiser Dream Team With Yet Another Version of Its Popular Segment Buster

- Standard 220-horsepower High Output Turbo Engine
- Limited-Production Run
- Limited-production Midnight Blue Over Bright Silver Paint Treatment
- Unique Tinted Blue Glass, Two-tone Interior and Chrome Accents

Auburn Hills, Mich., -
Another dream comes true with the introduction of the new 2004 Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 3. Just in time for Detroit's Woodward Dream Cruise, the latest offering in the limited-production series of Chrysler PT Cruisers includes a standard 220-horsepower High Output turbo engine, unique Midnight Blue and Bright Silver two-tone paint scheme and blue-tinted glass, the latter of which are both firsts in the PT Cruiser lineup.

The PT Dream Cruiser Series 3 will sell for an MSRP of $28,810 (excluding $590 destination).

"With the increased horsepower from turbocharging the engine and the 245 lb.-ft. of torque at the most useable portion of the power band, this addition to the Dream Cruiser Series is certainly no 'sleeper,'"said Larry Lyons, Vice President-Small Vehicle Product Team Engineering. "It offers both 'show and go,' with the highest level of performance in our range of PT Cruiser engines, which includes a new 180-horsepower turbo option for the very first time in 2004."

Announced in conjunction with Detroit's famous Woodward Dream Cruise, production of the 2004 Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 3 will begin this month, with vehicles arriving in North American dealerships just in time for summer cruising.

Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) for all Chrysler Dream Cruiser Series 3 vehicles will be reserved in a continuous sequenced block to enhance their collectibility.

Together, the High Output turbo engine and the special Dream Cruiser Series 3 styling cues make this, the eighth addition to the overall PT Cruiser lineup, truly a unique offering from the Chrysler brand.

"With this new version, we're giving PT Cruiser owners another limited-production Dream Cruiser vehicle, already customized with the most exclusive options available on any 2004 Chrysler PT Cruiser," said Tom Marinelli, Vice President-Chrysler Marketing.

"We received inspiration for this, the third member of our limited-production PT 'dream team,' from the hundreds of Chrysler PT Cruiser owner events held across the globe,'" said Marinelli. "It's all about upping the ante and making your PT Cruiser just a bit more unique than the one parked next to you. Our new Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 3 does just that and comes with the assurance of our seven-year/70,000-mile warranty not found on owner-customized vehicles."

Heritage-inspired Features

The exclusive Midnight Blue over Bright Silver exterior two-tone paint treatment sets the Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 3 apart from anything else in the parking lot. Available only on the Chrysler PT Dream Cruiser Series 3, this color combination harkens to the bold, multi-tone paint schemes the company made popular in the 1950s.

"Chrysler hit its heyday with custom paint options in 1955, including bold, contrasting bodyside inserts called 'color sweeps' on its upscale Plymouth and Chrysler vehicles," said Dave McKinnon, Vice President-Small, Premium and Family Vehicle Design and Color Fabric Mastering. That year, Chrysler offered 56 solid hues, 173 two-tone combinations and several three-tone choices, which usually included White, Black and one additional color like Fuchsia, Bright Yellow or Lavender.

"These combinations might seem a little flamboyant by today's standards, but they were extremely popular and helped the company sell 1.6 million vehicles in 1955, more vehicles than in any year prior to that time," said McKinnon.

Assuring that there will always be blue skies above, the PT Dream Cruiser Series 3 features unique blue tinted gla

I still think it'd look better with the colors "flipped" - dark bottom, silver top.
