The building has a lot of ornamentation that is based on features that were being used on Chrysler cars of the day, the thirty first floor corner ornamentations are replicas of 1929 Chrysler radiator caps, and the corners of the sixty first floor are graced with eagles, replicas of the 1929 Chrysler hood ornaments.
trivia answer that I came across accidentally, why did the 1920 Locomobile have a scarfed and moustached guy as a factory (not resale) hood ornament?
