1953 Chrysler Town & Country
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.
Classic Car Overview
A father and son were the only owners for 64 years. The son remembers he was 8 years old when his father bought this car in 1954 in North Hollywood California. He purchased it for his mom to haul us kids around. In 1964 the family moved from California to Southern Oregon and his father put the car in secured storage where it was stored for the next 28 years. In 1992 his dad allowed his son to take possession of the Town and Country.
The motor starts and runs smoothly with no noise, smoke or blow by. The fluid drive works and shifts nicely. The exhaust is quiet and it brakes properly. The front suspension is tight, the power steering is smooth and drives exceptional at 65-70 mph.
The alligator interior is in remarkable condition after more than 6 decades. It has 3 seam splits that are about 4 and should be easily fixed because the material is not brittle. The headliner, door panels and dash are excellent. The carpets have some wear but are presentable. The wood floors and wood rear side panels are amazing for being original. The glass has no lamination and clear. The body rubber throughout is not cracked and remains soft.
This Chrysler has never been in an accident. The paint is original except for the front nose which was repainted in 1955 due to a sand storm.
