1948 CHRYSLER CARS DESCRIBED 1948 CHRYSLER - GENERAL: Minimal physical changes marked the Chrysler models built in the final production run of 1948, although significant price increases were recorded. Additional colors became available during the model year. The larger, low-pressure tires. adopted in 1947, became standard fare in 1948. Stainless steel trim rings were a more common option fitted once white wall tires were made optional. Chrysler continued the policy of making minor upgrades and running changes as in 1946 and 1947 so 1948 models were almost indistinguishable from 1947 models, and serial numbers merely stayed in sequence with no year designation. "Safe Guard" hydraulic brakes, and a permanent "Oilite" fuel tank filter were once again standard as did the rust-proofing that protected the interior body structure. 1948 ROYAL SERIES C38S - 6-CYLINDER: As in 1947, the Royal was the least expensive car of the Chrysler family, Royal series identification was provided by "Royal" nameplates found on the hood sides. Standard equipment included arm rests on both front doors, directional signals, entrance light, brake warning light, cigar lighter with illuminated ash tray, rubber floor covering in front compartment (except club coupe and 8-passenger sedans which are carpeted), dual outside front door locks, glove box light and lock, pile fabric or broadcloth upholstery, luggage compartment light, assist straps and robe cords on sedans and broughams, dual two-speed electric wipers, plastic steering wheel, automatic dome light, white wall wheel covers and interior door lock. Royal 4-door sedan/limousine models were once again available on a "long" 139.5" wheelbase chassis. 1948 WINDSOR SERIES C38W 6-CYLINDER: The Windsor, an upgraded version of the Royal had virtually no changes. There was little to distinguish 1946-1947 Chrysler Windsor models from their 1948 counterparts. Low pressure tires were now standard for short wheelbase cars. The Windsor included all Royal features plus two-tone wool broadcloth upholstery. carpeted front compartment, electric clock, rear seat folding arm rest on sedans and exterior "goose neck" mirror on convertibles only. The Windsor offered luxury on par with the more upscale New Yorker line, but was powered by the more modest L-head sixcylinder engine. Windsors were identified by "Windsor" nameplates on both sides of the hood. The optional "Highlander" interior was available on both open and closed models. Windsor 4-door sedan/limousine models were available on a "long" 139.5" wheelbase chassis As in 1947, the 4-door wood-bodied Town and Country was only available on the Windsor series. Thus. all Town and Country sedans were powered by the six-cylinder L-head engine offered on all Windsors. This policy lasted until the end of production of the 1946-48 series of the 1949 models. 1948 SARATOGA SERIES C39K - 8-CYLINDER: There were no changes in the 1948 Saratoga. Prices were up again from the 1947 models. Whitewall tires were an option. Standard equipment remained unchanged. "Saratoga" nameplates were located on hood to identify the model. The Saratoga was an eight-cylinder equivalent to the six-cylinder Royal in interior appointments. The wheelbase was six inches longer forward of the cowl to accommodate the longer 8-cylinder engine. Fluid drive was standard, as well as hydraulic rear sway strut, electric clock, rear fold down arm rests in sedan and two-door sedan (Brougham), wax-impregnated springs, and gray pile fabric or broadcloth upholstery. Four choices of optional color leather upholstery were available at extra cost. Only the Club Coupe was offered with a carpeted front compartment - the three-passenger coupe used a rubber rear mat instead of carpeting. 1948 NEW YORKER SERIES C39N - 8-CYLINDER: There were virtually no differences between the 1948 New Yorker and its 1947 counterpart. The change to larger, low-pressure tires and the resulting change in rear fender design were the only noticeable changes. Of special note were two Town and Country Hardtop Coupes built from T&C Convertible chassis. The high-line New Yorker models included all of the standard equipment found on the Saratoga and added such features as twotone wool broadcloth upholstery. a carpeted front compartment and, on convertibles, a "goose neck'" style mirror. Model identification was found on nameplates mounted on the side of the hood near the cowl. Highlander plaid upholstery was an option available on the New Yorker. The cars so equipped wore a "Highlander" nameplate. Town and Country models were mounted on the New Yorkers chassis and are included in New Yorker series. Town & Country convertible models and 2-door Coupe were all built on the New Yorker chassis. There were no other 8-cylinder Town and Country models offered other than those two models.

Thermal system engineering is not usually thought of as a first rank engineering discipline as Mechanical, Civil, Electrical and Chemical Engineering, and it is usually ascribed to the leading one (like Aerospace, Naval, and Automotive Engineering) because the paradigmatic thermal systems has always been the heat engine, but its importance pervades all other branches (e.g. thermal control .
