Now for sale in the Louisville, Kentucky showroom at Gateway Classic Cars is a 1948 Chrysler Town & Country. The dealership tells us the Chrysler Town and Country is the only production wood-bodied convertible. This one is said to be all original and comes well equipped with options such as a factory radio. See the video below!
Here is what the dealership had to say:
Wood as an exterior body material enjoyed a resurgence in the years immediately following World War II. In 1949 Chrysler re-designed its line replacing the wood-bodied Town and Country with a wood-accented steel body with Dinoc mahogany panels, making the few full wood-bodied T&Cs (only about 8400 built from 1946-1948) among the most celebrated collector cars. The tan and charcoal interior looks amazing in this ’48 woody. The powered top goes up and down with-out a hitch, and the top it self is in excellent condition with the back window being crystal clear. The 1948 Town & Country’s are becoming extremely hard to find especially ones that are all original such as this one.
