1947 Chrysler Town and Country “ ONE FAMILY OWNED FOR 30 YEARS!!! Very Nice and Original Woody! Rebuilt motor!!”

“THE BOATHOUSE!!!”

VIN 7100274

The Classic Car Gallery is proud to present this lovely 1947 Chrysler Town and Country. Back in the 1940s it was thought that wood would be the medium for which cars would be made. These “Woodies” were an upscale production based automobile that were aimed at the more affluent buyers. The craftsmanship and woodwork would differentiate the standard vehicles from these “high class” vehicles of the day. Chrysler Corporation General Manager David Wallace envisioned a wood-bodied car with the same basic lines as contemporary Chrysler steel-bodied sedans yet with greater refinement, uality and elegance.

This example “THE BOATHOUSE” has been owned by the same family for the last 30 year; she is named after the family's house on Nantucket. The car has been well preserved in fine “driver” quality condition. It is clear that the car was restored some years ago, nd the car remains in excellent running and driving condition. The exterior shows well and the car is a constant distraction, ompelling people to wave, oint, ook and appreciate her enormous road presence. The painted surfaces show well with good luster and shine; there is some poor repair work on the left rear due to a careless shipper. All wood on the exterior is in fine shape with no evidence of cracking or peeling; clearly much of the wood is original. The grain shows very well with deep varnish and polyurethane coating that is thick with a great sheen and depth. The interior wood also shows well and has clearly been restored, he door panels are especially nice. The interior leather shows a lovely patina, nd is supple and soft. All gauges and instruments work as they should. The 250 cubic inch straight six WAS REBUILT 6 YEARS AGO AND HAS LESS THEN 1000 MILES SINCE, t pulls well, as good power and torque and starts easily. She still retains her original 6-volt electrical system. She retains her original “fluid drive transmission”; a hybrid manual transmission with a fluid coupling. The “on the column” shifts very well and makes driving the car an enjoyable experience. The brakes work well and all systems on the car work as they should. There are not many examples left of this classic “woody” on the market today, et alone at this price point. Enjoy it today as it needs nothing but an enthusiastic new owner.
