Soon after Walter P. Chrysler took over the ailing Maxwell Motor Company and renamed the firm Chrysler in 1924, the company adopted the name Imperial to denote his top of the line offerings. By 1931, Imperial had evolved into a unique automobile that set itself well-apart from the rest of the Chrysler line. The new for 1931 model, known as the CG Imperial, sat atop a massive 145-inch wheelbase chassis, and the body was styled to give a low-slung and rakish appearance. Clearly influenced by the Cord L-29, the new CG Imperial featured broad, sweeping curves and a low-mounted, swept-back radiator grille. Motivation came via a mighty 385 cubic-inch straight eight producing 125-horsepower. The combination of that powerful eight-cylinder engine, coupled with advanced steering and suspension geometry, and four wheel hydraulic brakes gave the Imperial surprisingly good road manners and 100mph ability. Despite its proven ability, the CG Imperial remained a very limited car with only 339 examples built over a three year period. Considered by many to be the most beautiful Chrysler ever built, the CG Imperial is also a favorite among fans of American Classics who prefer to drive their cars as intended; such are their exquisite road manners and outstanding performance. Of the 339 CG Imperials built between 1931 and 1933, just 99 of those were shipped to coachbuilders outside of Chrysler’s favored circle. Of those 99 cars, approximately six found their way to Waterhouse and Co. of Webster, Massachusetts. Waterhouse was a relative flash in the pan in the coachbuilding world, in business only from 1928-1933, but in that time they produced a series of gorgeous and exquisitely built bodies. Their signature body style was the Convertible Victoria which Waterhouse perfected by only using long-wheelbase chassis, allowing for long, graceful lines as well as additional space for stowage to of the top when folded, giving a cleaner and elegant look. With the top in place, the low roofline, long blind quarters and boot between the rear fenders made for a striking combination – especially when sitting atop the utterly gorgeous Chrysler CG chassis. We are very pleased to offer this 1931 Chrysler CG Imperial Waterhouse Convertible Victoria, a stunning example wearing highly prized coachwork. The known history of this fabulous motorcar, chassis CG 3843, dates back to 1939 when Mr. Calvin Collins of New York purchased it from the McCormick Garage. The Collins family enjoyed the CG for several years until the car was taken off the road. Repeated war-era scrap drives threatened the car’s very existence, but Calvin’s young son Scott Collins recognized how very special his family’s Chrysler was, and pleaded its case to be spared from the scrapper. The car was holed up in the family barn as young Scott dreamed of returning the car to its former glory. Over the years, parts were collected as needed and finally, in 2009, after a remarkable 70 years in the Collins family, Scott offered the car to the respected Canadian restorer Richard Grenon who jumped at the opportunity to purchase it. Upon closer inspection, Grenon and his son discovered the chassis was in remarkably good condition considering what it had endured, and the aluminum body had survived the years quite well with minimal damage. Much of the structural wood had to be replaced, though he found many of the surviving wood components and smaller chrome items stamped with “163”, the original Waterhouse job number. Over 6,000 hours were spent painstakingly restoring CG 3843, and today it is presented in its original color scheme of a black main body with unique caramel colored side stripes, chassis and wheels. Upon its completion, the car was shown at the Ault Park Concours where it was awarded a class win, as well as the William K. Victor Best of Show Award, an incredible achievement for a car finished just days prior. CG 3843 remains in stunning condition, having been carefully maintained since the restoration and shown in numerous events including the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance in 2012. As one would expect from such a restoration, paint and finish quality is outstanding with hardly a flaw to be found. The chrome is also beautifully presented with show-quality plating on the radiator grille, bumpers and minor trim. The body is minimally adorned, which imparts a very European flavor, particularly in combination with the low ride height and black-wall Firestone tires – originally specified by Waterhouse to highlight the beautiful coachwork. Dual Chrysler-branded mirrors top the side mount spares, and a Gazelle mascot sits atop the radiator; a fitting symbol for such a sporting machine. The interior is trimmed in incredibly supple caramel-colored leather as original, executed to a concours quality standard. Likewise, the black canvas top and canvas side-mount covers are expertly fitted. A tan leather top boot is included to cover the soft top when it is folded and the windscreen features an interesting fabric exterior sun visor. The cockpit is surrounded with subtle but fine quality wood trim, while the dash is beautifully elegant – a simple body colored panel fitted with exquisitely restored instrumentation. One signature of the Waterhouse design is the pair of courtesy lights built in to the top frame, a nice touch for rear seat passengers. The CG Imperial’s 385 Cubic Inch inline eight cylinder engine is of course, up to the standard of the rest of the car with correct porcelain-black finishes and paint colors on the engine and cylinder head. Detailing on the ancillaries is exquisite; the engine presenting as a stunning piece of industrial art. Thankfully, the restorer took the time to ensure it performs as well as it looks and has since proven itself on events such as the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance. The comfortable seating position, relatively light steering and powerful four-wheel hydraulic brakes make the CG an outstanding machine for touring. It remains in top condition, having just this year taken Best in Show honors at the Muckenthaler Concours, as well as the Huntington Beach Concours. It was also awarded 99.5 points and 1st in class (out of 24 cars!) at the San Marino Motor Classic CCCA event, also in 2017. The CG Imperial is no doubt one of the most alluring Chryslers ever produced, and this example, with its achingly beautiful coachwork by Waterhouse and gorgeous presentation make it among the most desirable of the breed. With only three known examples to survive, this represents an extremely rare opportunity to acquire one of the finest and most important Chrysler CG Imperials extant.
--Royal Maroon with Burgundy leather interior, Maroon carpets and Tan convertible top, Restored, 324ci L-Head Inline 8-Cylinder Engine, Duel-Throat Downdraft Carburetor, 135bhp at 3,400rpm, 3-Speed Presto-matic Semi-Automatic Transmission, 4-Wheel Hydraulic Drum Brakes. This Town & Country has had extremely long term ownership. It is a very early example having serial number 26. Produced in 1946, it is the 25th car off the production line and was then shipped to sunny and dry Southern California. The first owner, having returned from the war, purchased the vehicle and embarked on his honeymoon. After the wedding, the now husband and wife drove their car all over Town and Country just as the vehicle's name suggests. The Chrysler remained in their ownership for just under 70 years. In the late 1980's to revive a rather tired look, a restoration was initiated. It was finished in its original Chrysler Royal Maroon, paint code 18 just as the cowl tag denotes. The interior was reupholstered to an exceptional standard that holds up extremely well to this day. During the restoration it is believed that the superb condition of the Town & Country gave the restorer the opportunity to preserve
While the iconic American Woody may not have been invented by Chrysler, it can certainly be argued that it was Chrysler that perfected the concept with their luxurious Town & Country series. Born out of necessity, the earliest woodies were basic, utilitarian bodies that were sold in the aftermarket to adapt to existing chassis such as the Model T. Wood bodied station wagons and depot hacks proved popular enough to convince Henry Ford to buy his own forest and offer the bodies himself. As styling became an ever more important factor in selling automobiles, the structural and functional woodwork grew into a point of style, and by the mid 1930’s, many manufacturers (led by Ford) began to offer station wagons with nicely finished wood bodies and room for 7 or more passengers. But it was Chrysler who set a new standard for the woody with their new Town & Country of 1941. The Town & Country was a top of the line luxury machine that combined the best of the New Yorker series from the windscreen forward, in combination with an artfully crafted and opulent wooden “country home” feel from the windscreen back. The name is credited to Paul Hafer of the Boyertown Body Works in Pennsylvania, who suggested the car looked “Town from the front and Country from the rear”. The Town & Country was the first of its kind to be fitted with an all-steel roof, which was cleverly adapted from a limousine. It was expensive to build, expensive to buy and required specialized maintenance but it proved to be enough of a success for Chrysler to continue production into the post-war era. Chrysler’s success quickly became apparent and other manufacturers jumped on the bandwagon. Ford and Mercury offered the Sportsman, Chevrolet offered Fleetline wagons, and Buick’s Roadmaster wagons came closest to Chrysler in terms of luxury and style. But few could match the Chrysler’s commercial success and no others offered the same diversity of body styles. Staying one step ahead of the competition, Chrysler eschewed the traditional wood station wagon roots in the Post War era in exchange for pure style points in the form of wood-bodied coupe, convertible and sedan models. The traditional wood-bodied Town & Country remained in production through 1950, before the expense of hand-building the wood bodies in Alabama, and shipping them to Michigan for fitment and finishing proved far too costly. Pre-War and Post-War examples remain highly prized for their impeccable style and beautiful road manners, and all models through 1948 have earned their place on the all-important list of CCCA Approved Full Classics. It is no secret that the Town & Country is both costly and difficult to restore properly. Expert care is needed to ensure proper fitment of the body, and high value is placed on the correct presentation of the wood. This exceptional 1947 example is far and above one of the finest of its kind we have encountered. While in the care of its most recent owner, it has been treated to an extensive, photo documented restoration to concours quality standards. The wood was painstakingly restored by noted marque expert Dennis Bickford to correct factory specifications and today presents in gorgeous order. The steel body panels are finished in the rare shade of Catalina Tan, which, combined with the maroon canvas top makes for a striking combination. Fitment of both wood and steel body components is exemplary and it retains the correct Mahogany door and boot lid inserts as originally fitted to the early 1947 cars such as our example, later cars having Di-Noc simulated wood inserts. Chrome and stainless trim has been thoroughly restored to an equally high standard and everything from the intricate chrome grille to the the large chrome bumpers are absolutely straight and correctly detailed. The Town & Country sits proudly on the road and rides on correct wide whitewall bias-ply tires with beautifully restored chrome hubcaps and deep trim rings. Along with dual cowl-mounted spot lamps, the presentation is simply stunning. The lavishly appointed interior was restored by Pebble Beach Concours-winning trimmer Ken Nemanic of Vintage Automotive Upholstery. As one would expect from such a reputable restorer, the interior is beautifully trimmed to original specification in correct dark red leather with tan Bedford cord cloth inserts and two-tone door cards. Chrysler’s “library chairs” are supremely comfortable with room for three abreast seating both front and rear. The cabin is a beautiful display of late art-deco style and early post-war luxury. Maroon carpets and a two-tone tan and maroon dash tie the appearance together. The dash features the original radio and the shift lever for the Fluid Drive transmission features the signature clear Lucite shift knob. The convertible top in maroon canvas is quite striking, and a matching boot is included for when the top is folded. No detail has been overlooked; even the trunk is properly lined with upholstered hard board, bound carpeting and a correct spare wheel and jack bag. Lifting the large hood reveals Chrysler’s tried and tested 323.5 cubic inch flat-head inline eight cylinder engine. It too has been meticulously detailed to factory specifications, with correct style fittings, hardware, finishes and hose clamps. Generally speaking, only convertibles received the eight-cylinder engine, while the sedan made do with the smaller six-cylinder unit. The additional horsepower of the eight (135hp vs 114hp) made up for the hefty weight, returning respectable performance and effortless cruising. Of course, the Town & Country is not about speed rather, it is about sumptuous luxury and impeccable style. Thanks to the fluid drive transmission, power delivery is smooth, quiet and relaxed. This example has covered fewer than 200 miles since the restoration, and is reported to be fully sorted and ready for enjoyment. Town & Country convertibles of this nature and quality are a rare find. They require a special passion and commitment to restore properly, and this stunning example has clearly been lavished with the utmost in care. The most recent owner, who also carried out most of the restoration work, has shown the car on just one occasion: A southern California CCCA show where it received a staggering 99.5 points on its debut. That half point deduction has since been resolved, making this in theory a 100 point restoration that has yet to appear at any major concours. This is a rare opportunity to acquire one of the finest concours-quality Town & Country convertibles extant, fresh from its outstanding restoration.
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. Specifications >>>>> Oldtimerfarm is going to renovate!

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. Specifications Bodywork Mechanics . >>>>> Oldtimerfarm is going to renovate!

That a major US manufacturer could come up with such an exciting concept car was startling enough but Chrysler's decision to put the Viper into production was nothing short of astonishing. Inspired, as its name suggests, by the legendary Cobra, Tom Gale's design study made its motor show debut in 1989 following discussions between Chrysler boss Bob Lutz and Cobra-creator Carroll Shelby; its appearance triggering an avalanche of deposit cheques. Without doubt, a large part of the Viper's 'back to basics' appeal stems from its unique selling point: a massively powerful eight-litre, V10 engine. The latter had been born out of the requirement for a larger unit to power the Dodge Ram pick-up truck, the prototype being created simply by grafting two extra cylinders on to the Ram's existing 5.9-litre, V8. Despite being relatively 'low-tech', the Lamborghini-developed pushrod V10 churns out 400bhp and a brutal 450lbs/ft of torque at just 3,600rpm, figures which the 3,280lb Viper translates - via a six-speed manual gearbox - into a 0-60mph time of 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 165mph. Compared with this paragon of power units, the Viper's running gear makes somewhat less interesting readin

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
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

Details The Chrysler Town & Country evokes the spirit of Americana starting in 1943 with lineage that extends well into a contemporary setting. It has taken many forms, adhering to the styling evolution of the times and the cars that bared the name. Ultimately, it was a success and in the early days these cars exemplified Chryslers commitment to quality and are true icons in many ways. The stage was set for these cars with the pre-war “Barrel Back” variants that are highly coveted today. With the war efforts converting Chrysler to its civic duty, these cars only returned in 1946 were the name-plate remained but a redesign offered an entirely new product. During this time (1946-1949) Chrysler offered a 2-door convertible variant as well as a 4-door sedan. The two door variant, known as the “Newport” named after the wealthy Newport, Rhode Island community was a 2-door pillarless coupe with “Clearbac” rear window (Chrysler’s term for a partitionless rear window). It was also the last year for t
