The idea of turning the structural aspect of wood as a styling feature may not have originated with Chrysler, but it can be argued that they certainly perfected it. The earliest woodies were born of necessity, with basic, utilitarian bodies that were sold in the aftermarket to adapt cars like the Model T for commercial duty. Eventually, the structural and functional wood became a point of style, and by the mid-1930’s most American manufacturers began to offer well-equipped station wagons with stylish wood bodies. It was Chrysler's Town & Country of 1941 that gave the traditional utilitarian wood structure a luxurious, elegant makeover. The inspired Town & Country was a top of the line luxury car that combined the best of the New Yorker from the windscreen forward with an opulent “country home” feel from the windshield back. The T&C was expensive to build, costly to buy, and required specialized maintenance but it proved a success, and soon other manufacturers were jumping on the bandwagon with their own versions of the luxury woody. However, few could match Chrysler’s commercial success or the sheer sense of occasion when in the presence of one of these magnificent machines. This 1948 Town & Country convertible has been in the care of just three families since new. It was originally purchased in Sacramento, California by Charles L. and Betty Miller, delivered new in Catalina Tan (Code 9 on the trim tag); a very rare and attractive springtime promotional color that was reserved only for California dealers. Mr. Miller drove the car very little yet took meticulous care of it. In the late-1950s, the couple moved to Arlington, Virginia and in April of 1957, they hired someone to drive the Chrysler from California for them. The original emergency transit permit (a temporary registration of sorts) still accompanies the car. Once in Arlington, the car saw even less use, as the elderly man was not allowed to drive it on the road. He still cared for it meticulously, never left the car out overnight, and only pulled it out of his garage on occasion to carefully wipe it down with a damp chamois, never using a hose and bucket to wash the car as he was afraid of damaging the wood. The second owner grew up in Arlington and was alerted by a friend who had spotted the Chrysler in the Miller’s driveway. Word soon came from a family member that Mr. Miller would sell the car if it went to a good home. The 2nd owner’s father purchased the car in or around 1960, and it remained in their family until 2015. For all those years, it was treated the same way Mr. Miller cared for it – never washing it with a hose, always carefully wiping it down, and never leaving it out overnight. In fact, we are told it only spent one full night outside in all the time the second family had it– when it was used for a family trip to the Indy 500. Today, the Town & Country presents in very good, unrestored condition. It remains exceptionally original, save for one repaint in the correct color, a replacement Haartz canvas top, and some light detailing. It is otherwise an incredibly well-preserved, straight, and honest example, with outstanding wood and a clean, tidy underbody. The respray is of average quality, and some sanding marks are visible in the bodywork; however the paint has an appropriate luster that is in keeping with the car’s unrestored nature. The chrome is a mix of original pieces and some average-quality replated pieces, again appearing consistent with what is a largely unrestored car. Importantly, the wood is excellent and appears to be original. The doors and trunk fit well, and the varnish is even and appears very well-maintained. The Town & Country was a top-line luxury car, and Chrysler used the finest leather and Bedford cord upholstery. This car’s deep maroon leather/taupe Bedford Cord trim presents very well, with an appropriate patina from regular use. There is a tear in the front seat, though it remains serviceable and would best be treated with some careful preservation work. Otherwise, the upholstery on the rear seat and door cards is in fine original condition. Similarly, the convertible top is sound and in good condition, though there is some staining visible in the canvas. As this was a range-topping car, it is well equipped with a factory clock, radio, heater, and spot lamp. The original spare wheel, jack, and a reproduction workshop manual will be included. Chrysler fitted the T&C Convertibles with their legendary 323 cubic-inch Spitfire 8-cylinder. This flathead engine was magnificently smooth, particularly when mated to the fluid-drive transmission, giving these big cars outstanding cruising ability. This example runs very well, with the typical effortless nature that defines a well-sorted T&C. The engine compartment shows signs of regular maintenance and appears tidy, mostly correct, and very well-presented. It is wonderfully original and has not been restored because it has never needed it. Similarly, the undercarriage is exceptionally clean, revealing the 70 years of care this car has enjoyed. The 1941-1948 Town & Country enjoys CCCA Full Classic status, making it eligible for their outstanding CARavan tours and events. This beautiful original car would also be well suited for AACA events or simply for casual cruising around town. With a wonderful history in the hands of only three careful owners, this unrestored Town & Country will surely reward its next keeper.

Additionally there is a full dossier of receipts. No expense was spared on the restoration. This car will be competitive at the highest levels of the show car world. This is the documented story of this wonderful car; My interest with classic cars started in 1957 at the age of eight with my grandparents 1947 Dodge. I remember
The first Chrysler motor car, introduced in 1924 was to prove highly successful and met with wide acclaim. With features normally found only in far more expensive cars, such as hydraulic brakes and full-pressure lubrication, the Model 70 was capable of over 70 mph.A number of revisions were carried out in 1926, with the engine being enlarged to 3.6 litres. A 1927 example of the '70' Tourer (Phaeton) this car was exported in chassis form to Australia, being bodied there with coachwork to Chrysler design.The car was to remain in Australia until around 1973, when it was imported to the UK and acquired by a Mr. Lorch, who was to keep it until he passed away some some five years ago. During his ownership the car underwent a major restoration at the Beaulieu National Motor Museum workshops in the late 1970's and was subsequently used on a number of Continental rallies and more recently in VSCC events.Now having a charming patina, the Chrysler remains in good condition and is a pleasure to drive, with its smooth running, powerful engine.A large file of paperwork is supplied, including a copy of the original Instruction Book.A period Surrey registration number was obtained when the car cam
The Chrysler Town & Country was manufactured from 1940-1942 and from 1945-1988 it was also sold as a sedan, coupé and convertible frtom 1947 until 1950 and from 1983 until 1986. The Town and Country nameplate was off the market until the 1990 model year run when Chrysler re-introduced the Town & Country nameplate as a rebadged variant Chrysler Town and Country minivan. Chrysler's Town & Country wagon was distinguished by woodgrain paneling on the body sides and tailgate, a feature also associated with competitive wagons such as the AMC Ambassador, Buick Estate, Ford country Squire and others. A simulated woodgrain appearance reappeared on other Chrysler products, such as the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Lowered price from €39.950 -> €33.950 The Chrysler Windsor was built from 1939 through to the 1960s (8 series plus 1 Canadian from 61 till 66)). The Windsor was positioned above the entry-level Royal from 1939 to 1950. With the demise of the Royal for the 1951 model year the Windsor became Chrysler's price leader through to 1960. For the 1961 model year the Chrysler Newport was made the marque's price leader with the Windsor positioned one level above the Newport. Chrysler replaced the Windsor name in 1962 with the introduction of the non-lettered series Chrysler 300. In 1955, all Chrysler cars were completely restyled with styling by Virgil Exner, sharing some visual similarities with the all-new Imperial which became its own division. With the introduction of the Imperial brand, the Windsor became the top model of the Chrysler Division as an alternative to Buick and Mercury. The Windsors were more rounded and had wrap around windshields.

This large, rare and impressive RHD Chrysler Saloon and has spent the past few years in the impressive classic car collection at the Riga Motor Museum in Latvia. The museum closed in 2013 for re-construction and opens again in 2015 with additional vehicles. The Chrysler has come out of the museum to make way for a replacement vehicle that was purchased from us. Recently, prior to coming over to the UK from Latvia, it was subject of a basic re-commissioning programme and then covered 300 faultless miles. Prior to its time in Latvia, the Chrysler was owned by a Professor in the Netherlands who carried out some improvements to include an interior re-trim and re-paint fifteen years ago. The Chrysler will be UK registered shortly and we are therefore putting it through a UK MOT test. Once this has been done, we will acquire a UK registration mark and the car will be road legal. The Chrysler has come to us as a good, reliable starter and the car runs and drives superbly with a strong straight six engine holding very good oil pressure. Column gear changes are smooth and whilst the brakes need cleaning, the car pulls up very responsively. Steering feels very precise and the car handles ver
