1948 Chrysler Town and Country

The Chrysler Town & Country was a wagon manufactured by Chrysler from 1940-1942 and from 1945-1988 (during World War II, a three-model-year hiatus, from 1943 to 1945, was starkly imposed upon by the United States Federal Government until the end of World War II during calendar year 1945). The Town & Country was also sold as a sedan, coupe and as a convertible from 1947-1950 and from 1983–1986. 1988 was the last model year for the Chrysler Town & Country wagon, after that and partly during one model year (1989), the Town & Country nameplate was off the market until the 1990 model year when Chrysler re-introduced the Town & Country nameplate as a rebadged variant Chrysler Town & Country minivan.  Wikipedia

Another beautiful blast from the past.  The amount of time, effort, elbow grease and especially money that is put into restoring and taking care of these autos is astounding.  This car had a base price of $3,400.00 when first made which was hefty then.  Now the value can be well over $100,000 for a restored one like this!

    Very nice. I don’t think I’ve seen one of these. Thank you for the detailed information and the photos.

      You’re welcome. There was an entire section of them including one that had been in old movies.

    I love the old woody wagons. So classic.

    Bet you could find one on the cheap in Cuba. 😀
    A real beauty, Teri. The owner/restorer must be so proud — and rightfully so!
