Chrysler Town Country and country 2-door convertible, very rare, factory Woody 1949
General description :
1949 was the last year Chrysler listed the Town & Country Convertible on its price list. It was also the last time the Town& Country came with a fully steel body. The car has a 5.3 litre straight-eight delivering 135 Ps coupled to a 3-speed semi-automatic. It was also the first post-war Chrysler. The main distinction between the ‘48 and ‘49 model is the increased wheel base. The economy was still recovering, meaning that not many people could afford such a luxurious car. This in turn led to only 993 being sold by Chrysler. This example has already once been restored including a complete new ash frame. The bodywork and frame are in top quality order. The bodywork has nice and thin, correctly aligned panelwork. The chassis is also in very shape. The hood was also replaced at the time of the restoration and shuts securely. The interior is in good shape. The controls and instruments are all in good working order. With its 135 Ps and weighing over two tonnes the Chrysler Town & Country is never going to be a sports car. It does however make it an ideal cruiser. The semi-automatic 3-speed suits the engine character perfectly. Restoring a car like this is almost an impossible task. Just re-fabricating the frame costs a fortune. Why bother when you can step into this fine example. The hard work has already been taken care off by someone else.

The Chrysler Corporation, one of the "big three" was founded by Walter Chrysler in 1925
Apart from artdeco(isque), airflow and airstream models, Chrysler's early years may lack lustre in design terms but not in technical. Their list of early automotive "firsts" includes Floating Power i.e. Rubber engine mounts, replaceable oil filters, downdraft carburetor, and four-wheel hydraulic brakes.
Things were to change after the war, Exner revived Chrysler production car design with the sleek, sculptured Forward Look designs of 1955 that transformed the product line overnight. The flagship in 1955, Chrysler 300, came with HEMI power. The 300, arguably the first muscle car, became a legend on and off the race track and set records throughout the 1950s, The Legend of Hemi was born.
