The Plymouth Prowler finished in a sterling silver reputation in the automotive press. packing a 3.5-liter V6 in a body its retrofuture styling has gone out of vogue. By the time it was discontinued in 2002, wearing a Chrysler badge after Plymouth's demise, It may seem like the Prowler was a fluke, a strange side project that somehow made it past the accountants to share a showroom floor with Town & Country minivans and Ram pickups. But when the Prowler came up in conversation at the R&T office this week, it made me wonder: What made Chrysler pull the trigger on this particular project? To find out, the former head of design at Chrysler who shepherded the Prowler into production. As it turns out, the car was far more than a 1990s spin on a 1933 Ford—it was Chrysler's largest-ever experiment in building aluminum cars, coming nearly 20 years ahead of the aluminum car revolution we're seeing today. "The whole thing really was an exercise in research for how to use aluminum materials," Gale says of the Prowler. "At the time, Chrysler really didn't have a lot of applied research. So in my view, this was a great way to kind of force us to take a look at aluminum stamping, aluminum forming, extrusions, welding, and combining that with composite materials. "Prowler was really more about that than it was the car itself, and I was kind of the one that pushed that. I was just anxious to see us have that kind of research," Gale says. "At the time, we could see where things were going to go, especially if you looked at a long-term trend, with fuel economy and weight," Gale told me. "And yet we really didn't have the kind of expertise we felt we needed. So having [Prowler] happen, having the ability to bring [aluminum] panels into a production environment, definitely provided us with knowledge that we wouldn't have gained in other ways."
