Harry's Thoughts

We’ve had the pleasure of having a few Chrysler Town and Country’s on our showroom floor over the years and we always have a soft spot in our hearts for them. They are a joy to drive and the styling of the coach-built bodies takes us back to a simpler time. This Town and Country has a beautiful color combination and runs and drives beautifully. It would be a great addition to any American automotive collection.

THE ESSENTIALS

This 1947 Chrysler Town and Country Convertible is part of the collection of a good friend and client of ours. He is known for meticulously maintaining and caring for his vehicles and he enjoys driving them regularly. This Town and Country has been his vehicle of choice for cruising around the community near his beach home in the Pacific Northwest. The gorgeous color combination, beautiful interior and easy drivability make this Classic Car Club of America Full Classic Town and Country a perfect choice to be enjoyed on CARavans, tours and in shows.

This Chrysler was acquired new in San Diego, CA and is believed to have spent most of its life in Hawaii. The current owner, Bradley Huson, of Ruston, WA acquired the Town and Country in 2009 from Tom Crook Classic Cars in Seattle, WA. Mr. Huson has enjoyed and maintained the Chrysler over the past 14 years and has restored portions of the car only as needed. Mr. Huson drives his Town and Country regularly and it has become well known in his beach community in the Pacific Northwest.

The livery of this Town and Country is a gorgeous Polo Green (Code #5) with beautiful luster and shine with just a few minor imperfections that are only noticeable upon close inspection. The Polo Green is a beautiful complement to the coach-built wood body framed in White Ash with insert panels of Honduran Mahogany. All the detailed woodwork shows well overall and is in very nice structural condition. The Mahogany inserts have not been restored and are showing some patina. Nearly all the hardware has been re-chromed and shows beautifully apart from the door handles and a few small pieces. The gorgeous dark green powered Haartz canvas convertible top shows very well inside and out and operates beautifully and fits snuggly. The matching dark green canvas top boot is in beautiful condition and snaps in place nicely. The chrome wheel covers show very well, and the wheels are wrapped in period correct Firestone Deluxe Champion wide white wall tires.

The interior upholstery is complete in beautiful green leather with tan pleated Bedford cord inserts. The upholstery and matching door panels show beautifully overall. The dash is finished in Polo Green which is a nice complement to the beautiful chrome gauge cluster, radio, and controls. The gauges all appear to be functioning properly. The dash shows some minor imperfections in high wear areas only and shows well overall. The carpet is a beautiful dark green wool with dark green leather binding, all matching the dark green canvas top and top boot. The carpet shows well overall and is in very nice condition due to the continued use of tan, woven floor mats. The three-spoke Polo Green steering wheel and chrome horn assembly, which is emblazoned with “Fluid Drive” are in nice condition and feels good in your hands. The trunk area is beautifully detailed and comes complete with a matching wide whitewall spare. The interior is in very nice overall condition and shows beautifully.

The Town and Country engine compartment has been well detailed and painted and is home to the 323 ci L-Head Straight-Eight Cylinder engine which produces 135 hp and runs strong and quietly. The Straight-Eight is mated to the Presto-Matic 4-Speed Fluid Drive Semi-Automatic transmission which shifts smoothly and operates quietly. The chassis has been cleaned and painted and looks terrific.

This Chrysler Town and Country is as much a joy to drive as it is to look at. It is ready to be enjoyed on local tours and shows and would be a great addition to any enthusiast’s collection.

We have this Town and Country priced very well.  The Hagerty No. 2 value is $90,100 and the No. 3 value is $60,500, with values increasing about 10% over the last year.  This is definitely a No. 2-.  This Chrysler comes complete with its shop manual.

Interesting Fact: The Chrysler Town & Country has had two completely different variants over the years. From 1940 to 1941 and 1945 to 1988, the Town & Country was a full, and then mid, sized station wagon. However, from 1990 to 2016, the vehicle was turned into a minivan. The original Town & Country features an all steel construction and is a four-door luxury station wagon. Production paused for World War II and, when it resumed again, the Chrysler Town & Country had been turned into a mid-sized station wagon that soon began using a 6.8-liter V8 ending to provide reliable power. Chrysler stopped producing the Town & Country as a station wagon in 1988 but reintroduced the brand in 1990 as a minivan that features a V6 engine. In 2017, the nameplate was dropped and replaced by the Chrysler Pacifica. Their minivans were far more popular than the station wagons, however, and were ranked as the 13th bestselling automotive nameplates in the world with over 12 million sold. This is a unique vehicle given the massive change in design starting in the early 90s but is loved by drivers all across the world!
