1947 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible

Lot No. 772

Auctioned on Sunday, March 16, 2014

Sold for $211,200

This 1947 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible, (Model C-39), is an outstanding example that was recently restored with no expense spared to achieve the high standards on display. It is thought that less than 500 of these beautiful coachbuilt post-war “woodies” remain in existence today with few in the condition demonstrated here. The elegant tan paint is outstanding as is the wood paneling and trim. The Chrysler has a tan power-operated convertible top and a sophisticated two-tone tan and brown interior. Among the other features are foglights, driver’s side spotlight, radio, exhaust extension and center bumper guard.

Built on the New Yorker’s 127.5-inch wheelbase, the Town & Country convertible was longer than the sedan. It also had all the New Yorker standard equipment: five-main-bearing 323.5-cid, 135-hp straight-eight engine, Prestomatic Fluid Drive transmission and an electric clock. Annual production totals were not recorded, but for the 1946 through 1948 model years, 8,368 New Yorker Town & Country convertibles were built. The new-design second-series 1949 line dropped the Town & Country sedan, and for 1950 the model retreated to an eight-cylinder hardtop coupe with painted metal insert panels. Thereafter, the name “Town & Country” graced a long succession of Chrysler steel-bodied station wagons and minivans.

The vehicle’s styling and its quality craftsmanship returns one back to the promising life in the post-war era of the 1940s and the fine automobiles of the time.
