Richard "Dick" Chrysler (born April 29, 1942) is a politician from the U.S. state of Michigan.

Chrysler was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and graduated from Brighton High School in Brighton, Michigan. He became vice-president of Hurst Performance and the founder and president of Cars and Concepts (which bought out Hurst), and RCI.

In 1986, he campaigned for governor of Michigan as a Republican, but lost a hard fought primary to Wayne County Executive, William Lucas.

Chrysler lost in his first campaign for the United States House of Representatives in 1992 to Bob Carr. He was elected in 1994 as a Republican from Michigan's 8th congressional district to the 104th Congress, serving from January 3, 1995 to January 3, 1997. While in Congress, he worked on the issue of changing the income tax to a flat tax, but was unsuccessful. He was defeated by Democrat Debbie Stabenow in the 1996 election for the 105th Congress.
