For Sale: 1947 Chrysler Town & Country in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

There were several manufacturers in the 1940's using wood as a design feature in their automobiles but none looked as elegant as that of the Chrysler Town and Country. In 1941 Chrysler debuted the 4-door 8-passenger station wagon Woodie with an all-steel roof and by 1950 the last true Woodies would end production, although the name Town And Country would remain until the 1980's still using faux wood. These are incredible cars to look at and cruise around with everyone giving you a nod. This particular car comes out of long-term collector ownership dating back to the early 1980's where the car was purchased out of Colorado. The engine had just been swapped out for a more user-friendly newer Chrysler variant, the 318 Cubic Inch which was mated to a 727 Transmission with low mileage. With the engine change, the car starts, runs and goes down the road very well. The car does not have power steering, which is one of the reasons the elderly owners decided to part ways. The interior shows very nicely, the car does not seem to smoke or leak and it starts perfectly every time. All the lights seem to work as does the heater. The overall condition is really nice driver condition that from what we can tell needs nothing to be enjoyed however, like any seventy year old car, things can always be done to keep them up and driving. These cars can demand some serious money when they numbers matching and freshly restored, however we prefer them get used.
