1947 Chrysler Other Windsor

Chrysler was pretty good at being all things to all people in the 1940s, ith cars that crossed all price brackets and offering big car luxury at medium car prices. As this 1947 Chrysler Windsor sedan proves, ou could get a full-sized Chrysler for not a lot of cash, fact that's true even today.The neo-fastback shape of this big sedan has aged rather well, nd between the gracefully flowing front fenders and the swooping rear deck line, his is one heck of a good looking car. There are some who loved Chrysler's "electric shaver" front end, nd when you look at the entire package, t has a restraint that's commendable and a chiseled look that's aged rather well. The medium blue paint is actually pretty close to the original code 1 Military Blue that this car wore originally, aybe a little brighter but certainly no less handsome. All four doors open and close with that solid sound that you just don't get in cars these days, nd the trunk lid fits better than most. The bumpers have been recently re-chromed, big expense on a car like this and probably a good 10% of the asking price all by themselves. The rest of the stuff is a combination of good original trim and polished stainless that needs little more than a quick buff to look its best. The bright blue plaid interior is a cool riff on the original Highlander upholstery of the period. Yes, hat's pretty close to how the factory might have done it, lthough the vinyl might be a shade or two brighter. Either way, t looks cool and the workmanship is good, o you'll find the interior of this Windsor to be a great place to hang out with some friends. The big steering wheel gives you a sense of power and the comprehensive dashboard has a very cool look reminiscent of a juke box, articularly with that cool center stack with integrated radio speaker. All the gauges appear functional, he clock has stopped, hich isn't unusual, nd sadly, he AM radio isn't working either, ut otherwise it's ready to cruise. It's worth noting that this Windsor has a standard 3-speed manual transmission with the Fluid-Drive setup, here you dont have to push the clutch in while coming to a stop. And in addition to the spacious back seat, here's a giant trunk out back, aking this big sedan a fine candidate for long tours.Don't underestimate Chrysler's 250 cubic inch inline-six, his is the little engine that could! Smooth and torquey, t pulls the big sedan up to speed and doesn't seem to sweat keeping up with modern traffic. It's still quite stock, rom the oil bath air cleaner, o the downdraft carburetor, o the cast iron manifolds, nd few engines before or since are more reliable. Parts are still plentiful and it's so simple that just about anyone can work on it with just basic tools. It's not detailed for show, ut it does have plenty of new components and runs quite nicely. The 3-speed manual shifts properly with decent clutch action and the hydraulic brakes are reasonable given the car's age. The ride is plush and it'll happily cruise all day and even pulls down reasonable fuel economy. The underside is about the same as the engine bay, riginal, ut that only means it's OK to drive just about anywhere, ny time. Big 7.00-15 wide whites on factory steel wheels with hubcaps complete the cool '40s vibe.A neat old sedan with a lot of charisma, reat road manners, nd a very affordable price tag.
