A rapid system for the identification of Chrysler Corp. vehicles from paint samples has been devised. The data presented outline the production relationships of Chrysler vehicle lines to their various assembly plants from 1960 to 1979. Marketing trends seen in our data illustrate the usefulness of a statistical data base. Microscopic and chemical data from the analysis of 107 core samples, representing paint samples collected from 1452 Chrysler Corp. vehicles, are presented and discussed.
