Marketing of the Sunroof Option: From Product Inception to Final Sale 740173

Specifically, this paper analyzes the evolution of the sunroof option at Chrysler Corp. from the earliest recognition of the need for a product to replace declining convertible sales through to the selection of the advertising theme used to promote the sunroof.
