Classic Car Overview

Now available at the St. Louis Car Museum is an extremely rare Town & Country convertible that our expert team finds to be in outstanding condition, both inside and out! This classic Chrysler showcases a terrific blend of original and professionally restored touches but remains wonderfully authentic throughout featuring all correct components, and original wood. Seen here is a true Classic Car Club of America Classic that is well - kept and ready to drive! History of the Chrysler Town & Country Convertible: With World War II coming to a close in 1945, production for Chrysler motorcars commenced in 1946 with a proud namesake already in place, the Town & Country! Based on the Chrysler New Yorkers 127.5 wheelbase, it was luxuriously clad in hand-crafted ash wood doors and trunk with mahogany veneered sheet metal in between. Over three production years, just 8,375 would be produced, each year being more expensive than the last. By 1948, its final appearance, the MSRP reached $3,395 making it one of the most expensive models on Chrysler showrooms. The Town & Country would live on by namesake, but never be the same in elegance, custom craftsmanship, or design! Today, well-preserved originals command deserving values. And from a restoration standpoint, hard to complete for the same money considering the skillset required to properly finish one today. About this 1948 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible For Sale: We could not be more proud to offer this 1948 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible finished in factory-correct paint code 8- Gunmetal Grey over 42- Burgundy Leather/ Tan Broadmoor Cord cloth interior, and Black cloth soft top! Having been restored both cosmetically and mechanically, it is a brilliant blend of both honest original and professionally restored! Features include original 324ci Spitfire L-head Straight 8 producing 135hp mated to the sophisticated, and perfectly operating Fluid-Drive semi-automatic 4-speed transmission. Options include power-operated folding top, dual MOPAR spotlights, dual outside mirrors, Marvel Mystery Inverse oiling system, dual trumpet horns, pushbutton AM radio, turn signals, Comfort Master heater, front-rear bumper guards, and 8.20-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion wide whitewall tires! This outstanding example received a professional, engine out re-spray of the paintwork while remaining on the original frame leaving the undercarriage original to the 87,820 miles showing on the odometer. The original wood with factory finger joints and color tones all remain intact and in exceptional condition! The fresh paintwork is outstanding along with brand new convertible top & interior carpet all match the gorgeous re-chromed exterior components for a showroom new appearance! Inside, the car survived with an all original interior when it arrived to our facility. We made the decision based on the condition of the visual look of the dry leather that it required replacement. The original cloth fabric was retained to support the or
