1947 Chrysler Town & Country
The postwar market of World War II was an intense battle ground as the motoring public clamored for anything they could get. As a car starved nation struggled to get itself back on wheels, America’s car manufacturers had a field day by selling everything they could build. They also loaded their cars up with accessories that may or may not have been needed, but had to be purchased with the car. One car that needed very little in the way of dress-up options was Chrysler Town & Country Sedan. With the look of real wood and a beautifully sculptured body, the Town & Country was a car that was at home at the drive-in theater or the local country club.
Offered here is a spectacular Town & Country sedan from a longtime private collection of fine motorcars that’s finished in Panama Sand adding a perfect match to its fine Mahogany and Birch wood work. The elegant lines of Chrysler’s fine cars of the late 1940s are clearly evident in the rounded fenders and nicely balanced lines of Chrysler’s best for 1947. This Chrysler has been beautifully restored and also runs as good as it looks. The exterior is nicely complemented by a set of search lights and a real wood roof luggage rack. The interior features a sea of beautiful red leather with real wood door panels and an elegant Art Deco inspired dashboard that gleams with chrome. An opulent touch is found in the real wood headliner bows that are finished to match the interior. Power for this Town & Country comes from Chrysler’s tried and proven 250.6 cubic-inch L-Head six-cylinder engine rated at 114 horsepower. This Chrysler rides on wide white wall tires for a look that truly exemplifies the unique styling of the 1940s.
Hauling the family around has always been an exercise of mundane necessity, but the Chrysler Town & Country sedan proved that it could be done with style and class. With its handsome looks and reliable engineering, this Town & Country with its beautiful wood work is a car that get miles of smiles while also being capable of touring for any distance. While this is a car that is certainly welcome on any concours show field, it’s also a car that begs to see the open road.
