1958 ... 'The Army's Workhorse' !

 ... another fine Chrysler product; the Redstone Missile was a direct descendant of Werner von Braun's WWII V2. The Redstone was concieved as a 'theater weapon' to be launched in a nuclear battlefield (presumed to be Europe against advancing hordes of Russians). It also served to lift the first 2 sub-orbital Mercury- NASA flights.
