1947 Chrysler Town & Country --1947 Chrysler Town & Country Sedan
Model C38W. 114 bhp, 250.6 cu. in. L-head Spitfire inline six-cylinder engine, three-speed manual transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 121.5"
The end of World War II brought with it an unprecedented demand for new cars and as America's automobile manufacturers struggled to meet this pent-up demand, complete model... changes were delayed by several years. Chrysler's 1946-1947 Town and Country, however, was one notable exception. Originally conceived in 1941 by Chrysler's Dave Wallace, the Town & Country was only available in four-door "barrelback" form, with a beautifully crafted wooden body.
After the war, Chrysler introduced new Convertible Coupe and four-door Sedan variants of the Town & Country, replacing the previous station wagon. Spurred on by an enticing advertisement campaign and a two-page spread in the Saturday Evening Post, anxious public interest in the new Chryslers prevented the firm from making any clay models or prototypes. As a result, the car was reportedly constructed directly from design sketches to meet looming time constraints.
As renowned author Donald J. Narus so aptly wrote in his work, Chrysler's Wonderful Woodie - The Town and Country, "The Sedan, while it did not share the glamour of the convertible, was perfectly at home on any of the swank estates of Long Island." Narus continued, "Where the convertible had pizzazz, the Sedan had elegance, a marvelous blend of wood and steel."
Although the majority of Town & Country Sedans were built in 1946, just 2,651 examples were produced for 1947. The example offered here was formerly from Texas and with its original, rust-free body panels and the original woodwork, it displays a beautiful restoration to original specifications. With a handsome blue exterior finish complemented by excellent brightwork and lovely woodwork, this Town & Country also features a factory correct interior fitted with burgundy upholstery and carpeting. This well equipped example also includes a clock, an AM radio, heater and defroster. Underhood, the Spitfire inline six-cylinder engine and engine bay are very attractive and well detailed as well.
Wonderfully restored, this beautiful Town & Country Sedan represents a great opportunity to acquire one of the most stylish and desirable automobiles of the immediate postwar era.
