This is the premiere website for information about the Chrysler Siren, the giant siren, huge siren, largest siren used during the Cold War years 1952, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, and 1957. The Chrysler Air Raid Siren is a V-8 331-CID HEMI gasoline siren. It is a civil defense siren. Predecessors were the Bell Telephone Lab's Big Bertha, Big Joe and Chrysler-Bell Victory Siren. It's not an American Blower Siren, that's the name of the compressor manufacturer.
Some of these sirens were installed after production ceased. Because of construction requirements Chrysler Sirens were sometimes not installed until 1958, 1959 or 1960.
