The car on offer is a 1929 Model 65. The car was retrieved in 2004 from a barn where it had sat for 52 years!! It only had 23,958 original miles and was solid and completely original and unmolested. The car underwent a complete, fully documented and photographed nut and bolt restoration. The car is certainly the finest 65 on the market, and runs and drives as well as it looks. The mohair interior is in show condition as is the engine compartment, underside and exterior. All of the trim has been restored. All parts are correct. Everything on the car is new or restored including exhaust, brakes, suspension and chrome. The two toned Marquette Blue/black paint is excellent as is the fully restored interior. All interior trim is correct. The car comes with a photo album of more than 200 pictures showing the restoration journey from the barn to the show field. 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 automobile business has spawned some rather unlikely partnerships over the years, with one of the most unusual of those coming in the early 1950s between Chrysler and the Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Ghia. At the start of the decade, Chrysler was saddled with a line of staid and conservatively styled cars that desperately needed an influx of excitement. Ghia was in need of business after facing heavy damage from bombing raids during World War II. So in order to encourage Chrysler to utilize their skills, Ghia built a car as an offering of sorts. That car was the Plymouth XX-500 of 1950, a stylish and elegant four door fastback based on the pedestrian Plymouth P20 chassis. The newly appointed Chairman of Chrysler, K.T. Keller along with Virgil Exner, Chrysler styling chief and a champion of Italian design, were suitably impressed and called upon Ghia to add a welcome dose of excitement into Chrysler’s product line. Over the span of the next decade, more than two dozen “Idea Cars” would be produced by Ghia for Chrysler and the relationship between these two storied firms would last well into the 1960s. Unlike many dream cars of the era from Detroit, Chrysler’s Ghia Idea Cars were fully engineered and drivable machines, ready for the road. Yet despite the positive response and press accolades, Chrysler brass was reluctant to green-light mass production, as they were still feeling the sting from the failed Airflow project. But Chrysler’s export manager C.B. Thomas insisted he could sell Ghia-bodied Chryslers to wealthy buyers, and managed to get official approval to commission six “Styling Specials”, with further approval for Ghia to build 12 additional cars. All Chrysler Ghia Specials were powered by the 180 horsepower FirePower Hemi V8, backed by either a Fluid Torqe Drive four-speed semi-automatic transmission or a PowerFlite fully automatic unit. The first car was a sporty, short wheelbase fastback, while the second car, commissioned for C.B. Thomas himself, was a more elegant notchback coupe that inspired the limited production run of just 18 similar cars. Today, Ghia Chryslers rarely become available on the open market, and they are highly sought after by collectors for their rarity, impeccable Italian style, and outstanding performance. This 1953 Chrysler Special Ghia was built atop a New Yorker Deluxe chassis and delivered new via Chrysler’s French importer, Société France Motors. Rather curiously, the car was first registered in a lady’s name as of 23rd of July 1953, yet by the 27th of July, it was registered to the wealthy industrialist, Leon Coulibeuf, who made his fortune in concrete electric poles during the post-war reconstruction. Coulibeuf was a motoring enthusiast and gentleman racer who competed at the Le Mans 24 Hour race, among many other events. The Chrysler was in good company, as he was also known to have a Mercedes Benz 300SL Coupe, Porsche 356 and Alfa Romeo 1900 in his stable. No doubt proud of their acquisition, the Chrysler Special was shown by Madame Coulibeuf at the 1953 concours d'elegance of Enghien-les-Bains in France, and was featured in the September 1953 issue of the French magazine L'Action Automobile. The Chrysler disappeared for some years before being acquired by Jacques Pelve, a Chrysler dealer in Brittany. He discovered the car on a factory property, rough but complete and still wearing its original livery and the same license plate it had worn when displayed at Enghien-les-Bains in 1953. After owning the car for many years, Mr. Pelve embarked on a painstaking, multi-year restoration, beginning in the 1990s and completed in 2001. The original Chrysler build-sheet confirmed this car still wears its original FirePower hemi engine, and it is understood the body was remarkably sound when it was restored. The car was refinished in a period appropriate two-tone blue color scheme, with a complementary light blue cabin piped in white. Today, this elegant and sophisticated motorcar presents in very good condition throughout. The restoration has mellowed slightly, showing some use, but paint finishes and detailing remain very good for a 16 year old restoration. It is an inherently gorgeous machine that eschews traditional 50’s glitz for understated elegance with its sculptured panels and intricate details. It rides on a set of lovely chrome wire wheels, wrapped in period correct wide-whitewall tires. Chrome trim and detailing remains in excellent condition, and the body is very straight with excellent panel fit and alignment. Light blue leather lines the cabin, covering the seats, door cards and rear quarter panels. The seating surfaces do show some light use but remain very attractive overall. Carpets are very good, as are the door panels and headlining. This car features a rear seat which may have been a later addition, as most Ghia Specials were strictly two-seaters. The dash is fitted with the original radio, clock and KM-calibrated instruments. Some of the chrome on the steering wheel shows very minor pitting, which does little to detract from the overall quality of the cabin. Moving around to the front, the engine bay presentation is good, with the original matching-numbers Firepower Hemi, appearing in good and tidy order with driver-level detailing. A non-original air cleaner has been fitted for ease of service, and the engine remains in very good running condition. This car is optioned with the four-speed Fluid-Torque-Drive transmission, shifted via the column-mounted lever. Upon its restoration, this car was invited to the Louis Vuitton concours d'elegance at Bagatelle in 2001. It also won the award for "most exciting design" at the concours d'élégance of Zoute Grand Prix in Knokke, Belgium in October 2014, and was shown at the prestigious Villa d'Este Concorso d'Eleganza in 2015. It remains in fine order throughout and is equally suited for touring or mid-level show. This Chrysler Ghia Special is a breathtakingly stylish, rare and truly international motorcar from the brief but brilliant postwar coachbuilding renaissance.
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

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.

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
