The atmospherics are hard to ignore. Both the symbolic and real effects of the Persian Gulf crisis have helped create a climate that seems eerily similar to the high winds of 1979-1981, when an oil crisis triggered the U.S. auto industry's incredible shrinking act. The world's standoff with Iraq is threatening auto sales by hastening prospects for a recession. Gasoline prices are climbing back toward the oil-shock peaks.

Another executive seen as having a shot at succeeding Iacocca is Vice Chairman Robert S. Miller. His duties were unchanged.

Chrysler Corp. has established a new office of the chairman in a move that its 64-year-old Chairman Lee A. Iacocca said was partly intended to pave the way for a successor.
