Z28 is the most famous Chevrolet RPO code ever. No other option code has become so synonymous with high performance. Other option codes have been used for well-known packages such as Z22 and Z27, but the option names/descriptions became famous, not the RPO number.
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.
Classic Car Overview
While the celebrated postwar woodies may trace their lineage back to the rudimentary, hard-working depot hacks of the early days of the automobile, designs like 1948 Chrysler Town and Country Sedan immediately conjure up images of gracious suburban living; they have become nostalgic icons of a bygone era. Yet these labor-intensive (both to build and maintain) designs were never particularly common when new, and they are even scarcer today all of which only serves to make this example more desirable.
Much rarer than its convertible sibling, the masterfully styled Chrysler Town and Country Sedan was built on the companys postwar Windsor model platform and continued the prewar station wagons exterior design of veneer paneling framed with white ash trim. In production for three years only, the Town and Country sedan was built in modest quantities (sources vary slightly, but it is believed only 1,176 examples were built during 1948); only a small fraction of these cars are known to survive to this day.
Offered from the Duane Sell Collection, research by its owner indicates that this final-year Town and Country is in fact one of the very last examples of the model produced. Originally finished in Heather Green; it has since been refinished in red over a read leather and tartan interior, a classic combination complimented by its wide whitewall tires. Recognized as a Full Classic by the Classic Car Club of America, it would make an appealing addition to any collection.
