Seller's comments about 1948' Chrysler Town & Country

"Everyone loves a woody; A piece of art deco furniture you can drive; Americas favorite parade car or fun for six on a night out at the drive-in." This is how Chryslers legendary Town & Country was described in Hagertys 2024 Bull Market List and, of course, our experts couldnt agree more! Our available 1948 Chrysler T&C, seen here, showcases a terrific blend of original and professionally restored touches that would attract any serious collector in the market for 1 of "10 best collector cars to buy in 2024!" (https://www.hagerty.com/media/market-trends/bull-market-2024/) 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.
