1948 CHRYSLER WINDSOR- placed for saleNov. 1, 2022 (purchased by present owner - April 2020)
This car was originally purchased new in a small Nebraska town in 1949. It is a true survivor which obviously had excellent care through the years. It was equipped, when new, with custom Chrysler optional seat covers which were removed only about two years ago. The entire car upholstery is in superior original condition. No tears or spotting, Only the front carpeting has been replaced with new. Dashboard, controls, gauges and radio have excellent appearance and all operate perfectly.

All stainless steel and chrome trim was removed from the car, and bumpers and bumper guards removed and re-chromed. Then the exterior of the car was entirely stripped of all paint down to bare metal finding NO BONDO OR RUST. Body was primed and painted the original color, Regal Maroon, to match the original color of the firewall. All trim and bumpers re-installed.

Although the actual odometer mileage on the car cannot be conclusively verified, about 65,000 miles seems to be a reasonable conclusion given the very few signs of wear or general deterioration on the car.
