1947 Chrysler Town & Country
Car for sale by RM Auctions Inc in Auburn, Indiana 46706
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.

This Town and Country sedan was originally delivered by Kemper Motor Company of St. Paul, Minnesota, to William G. Kohls. It was refinished in the early 1980s but otherwise remained original and well preserved until it was acquired by a former owner in 2013, at which time a restoration was commissioned by the Ruozzi brothers of Breinigsville, Pennsylvania. It was restored in the period color of Sumac Red with a correct red leather and taupe Bedford Cord interior. The car is fitted with a MoPar sun visor, reverse light, Jiffy Jet windshield washer, exhaust extension, and MoPar automatic battery filler. The heater, roof rack, radio, dual mirrors, dual spotlights, and fog lights are all original options delivered with this car when it was new, as documented by the original sales order.
In 2013 the car was judged Best Pre-war American Classic at Radnor Hunt and Best Wood-Bodied Car at the St. Michaels Concours dElegance, followed by Most Elegant Post-war Car at the Elegance at Hershey in 2014. Finally, in 2015 it received top honors in a special Town and Country class at the Amelia Island Concours dElegance, where it beat out many of the other top Town and Countries in the world. The car was purchased in 2018 by the current owner and has since resided in a prominent private collection. The car is accompanied by its Chrysler Heritage certificate, build sheets, an original invoice, and original handbooks.
