After the war, the most significant change in the Chryslers involved the Town & Country, which was no longer a wagon but a separate series of six- and eight-cylinder sedans and convertibles. Chrysler had promised a full line of non-wagon Town & Countrys, including a two-door brougham sedan and even a true roadster and a hardtop coupe.

The Town & Country line had its origins in a concept conceived by Chrysler Division General Manager Dave Wallace. In the early 1940s, his team of engineers produced an elegant fastback sedan body with a unique clamshell rear doors. Its wood trim covered all surfaces from the cowl back, except for the rear fenders. In 1946, the Town & Country returned with Chrysler-designed bodies built by Chrysler subsidiary Pekin Wood Products of Helena, Arkansas. They had Ash framework, a luxurious interior, and regal bearings. It was positioned as the company's 'halo' cars tasked with luring potential buyers back to their showrooms.

Chrysler built 3,136 examples of the Town & Country convertibles in 1947. This example is a California 'Black plate' car that is finished in black paint with a red leather interior. It has a power-operated Beige soft top and is powered by a 323 cubic-inch, 135 horsepower flathead straight-eight engine. There is a 'Presto-Matic' 4-speed semi-automatic transmission, wide whitewall tires, and fender skirts.
