For 1929, the four-cylinder Chryslers were renamed as Plymouths. The entry level Chrysler was now the Series 65, and came with a six-cylinder engine that offered 65 BHP. They were available as a roadster, tourer, 2- and 4-door sedan, 5-window coupe, and a business coupe. Pricing ranged from $1065 to $1150. The wheelbase measured 112.75-inches and rode on 5.50 x 18 tires. Standard equipment included Lockheed internal hydraulic brakes and hydraulic shock absorbers.
New this year was an ignition keyhole which replaced the old switch type. There were now bowl shaped headlights, silver and black finished instrument panels, and arched windows.
This 1929 Chrysler Model 65 Coupe was given a five year restoration that lasted through 1995. It is powered by a six-cylinder, 165 cubic-inch engine that offers 98 horsepower. There are hydraulic brakes and shock absorbers and the exterior of the car is finished in dark blue and black. It is accessorized with a clock and rear window shade. The original cost for the vehicle was $1296. By Daniel Vaughan | Jul 2011
