Chrysler restarts first plant

June 15, 2009 4:11:27 PM PDT
Chrysler LLC says it has restarted a small factory that makes the Viper sports car. The Conner Avenue assembly plant in Detroit is the first to begin making vehicles since May 4 when the company shut down all of its plants after it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Spokeswoman Dianna Gutierrez says she is not sure when other factories will come back on line. Chrysler executives have said they would restart a majority of the plants by the last week in June.

The company emerged from bankruptcy protection on June 10. The Viper plant restarted on Monday.
