    Background: Showing what Chrysler Corporation calls the world's first assembly line for turbine-powered passenger cars, in Detroit. Chrysler President Lynn Townsend, on left, and executives watch installation of gas turbine engine on a front suspension assembly, in one of first 50 cars to be distributed to motorists for tests. Assembly line will produce one car a week. The turbine engine has a single spark plug, operates without anti-freeze, oil changes or seasonal tune-ups, and can use any type of combustible fuel.
