The daddy of the modern minivan was built on a modified version of Chrysler’s K-Car platform with which it shared engines and much running gear, but the backbone was something that Lee Iacocca and Hal Sperlich called the T-115 platform…which was just a beefy version of the K-car. The Chrysler minivan was billed as an alternative to the station wagon and many years later we know that it completely replaced the wagon (and is now being superceded by the 3-row SUV…but that is a story for another time) and today’s example is shockingly well preserved.
