After acquiring a controlling interest in the ailing Maxwell Motor Company Walter P Chrysler phased out the company and absorbed it into his new firm, the Chrysler Corporation in Detroit in 1925. In addition to his namesake car company, Plymouth and Desoto Marques were created, and in 1928 Chrysler purchased Dodge. In the early thirties he had established a reputation for powerful, reliable, and occasionally sporty vehicles. The CM Series in particular was a favorite among enthusiasts combining lightweight bodywork, a powerful six-cylinder engine and an able chassis.
