1946 CHRYSLER TOWN & COUNTRY CONVERTIBLE
--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 the original wood and all original sheet metal.
Sold from the original owners to its current collector ownership, this Town and Country has only had two-owners from new. Just recently, $11,000 was spent with Autosport Designs in regular maintenance. The servicing included, the fuel system, braking system and further general maintenance to ensure this Town & Country is as good mechanically as it is cosmetically.
