CHRYSLER SHIPS MORE THAN 200,000 VEHICLES TO EUROPE

 BALTIMORE, March 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Chrysler Corporation (NYSE: C) today loaded a series of its newest export models onto the Wallenius Lines M/V Faust shipping vessel at the Port of Baltimore, celebrating the shipment of over 200,000 vehicles to Europe since the company resumed sales there in early 1988.
 "We continue to surpass export milestones either at or before our original projection," said Joseph E. Cappy, Chrysler's vice president - International Operations. "And we're looking forward to double-digit growth internationally for the remainder of the decade. It won't be long before we're celebrating our three, four or five hundred thousand milestone."
 Joining in the ceremony were the Hon. William Donald Schaefer, governor of the state of Maryland; Ray Ebeling, president of Wallenius Lines, North America, Inc.; Bill Kroh, president of Hobelmann Port Services; and Robert Scroggie, Chrysler's director of Logistics.
 "The Chrysler Corporation has been a strong supporter of the Port of Baltimore, and we are honored that its 200,000th export to Europe was loaded at our port," said Gov. Schaefer. "We greatly appreciate Chrysler's confidence and commitment to our port, and we will work closely with them to ensure their continued success."
 A network of more than 800 dealers sells Chrysler and Jeep vehicles in 18 European countries with sales totaling about 45,000 last year. In spite of the tough European market which was off by as much as 40 percent in some countries, Chrysler and Jeep(R) sales increased by 20 percent in the first two months of this year.
 The Chrysler Voyager and the Jeep Cherokee are Chrysler's best- selling vehicles overseas. The Viper, the limited-edition roadster, will be added to the export lineup this spring. In late 1993, exports of the Vision, Chrysler's new family sedan, will begin. Following soon after is a new compact car and later a new minivan. All will be sold in Europe under the Chrysler badge.
 The companies involved with Chrysler's export operations include: Hobelmann Port Services for port processing, limited homologation and staging; Ceres Marine Terminals, Inc. and the International Longshoreman's Association for freight loading; Harper Robinson for documentation and electronic data processing; Wallenius Lines, North America, Inc., for shipping by ocean carrier.
 The ceremonial vehicle shipment will arrive in Antwerp, Belgium, April 4.
