In 1941, Chrysler came out with the first all steel roof woodie wagon, called the Town & Country 4-door sedan. Less than 1,000 of this luxury vehicle were built, in 9 passenger and 6 passenger versions, for city or estate transportation. Chrysler wrote: "The celebrated 1941 Chrysler Town & Country would become the first luxury station wagon, appealing to affluent buyers with attractive design and interior fittings coupled to a larger and more refined cargo area than that found on competitor's vehicles. Significantly, it was the industry's first steel-roofed wagon. But to many this first Town & Country wasn't a wagon at all, but rather a fastback sedan, a glamorous and soon-popular new type of car whose production run would sadly be limited to just 17 months by world events. After World War II, the Chrysler Town & Country name graced a line of elegant convertibles, sedans and hardtops - but no wagons (Plymouth was the only Chrysler division to produce station wagons in the immediate postwar period, again featuring wood bodies supplied by an outside vendor)." The T & C woodies were only built from 1941 thru 1950, with none made during WWII (1942 thru most of 1946). These cars are highly respected and sought after. Our Ebay Policies:
