Conceived as a wood-bodied sedan-wagon prior to World War II, Chrysler’s Town & Country matured as a pair of elegant woodies in the immediate postwar period. A fleet of five body styles had been planned for 1946, two- and four-door sedans, a three-passenger roadster, and both hardtop and soft-top convertibles, but in the end only the four-door and the convertible were deemed viable. The sedan was sold as a six-cylinder Windsor model, the convertible an eight-cylinder New Yorker. Total convertible production from 1946 to 1948 was 8,368 cars.

Powering this wonderful car is a Spitfire inline eight-cylinder engine that is married to a Fluid Drive automatic transmission. The exterior is presented in green and matched by a tan canvas top and a green and tan interior. This car features wide whitewall tires, a spotlight, dual side view mirrors, turn signals, radio and a clock.
