Convertible Coupe
Chassis #: 6984844
For 1940, all Chrysler cars were redesigned. The Chrysler Six Series 25 was available as the entry-level Royal or the Windsor series. Long wheelbase versions of both were available. The six-cylinder L-head Gold Seal engine displaced 241.5 cubic-inches and developed 108 horsepower. It was carried over from 1939, but it received a modest increase in horsepower. A three-speed synchromesh manual transmission and four-wheel Lockheed hydraulic brakes were standard equipment. Chrysler's Fluid Drive, which had debuted in 1939, was available on eight-cylinder cars. All C-25 sixes had a conventional dry clutch and three-speed manual gearbox, but an overdrive was optional, though rarely ordered.

For 1940, the Chrysler Six was given a larger fender with recessed headlamps, sealed beam headlights, model name on either side of the hood at the front, and a longer hood. Inside, there were 'Airfoam' seat cushions, and dual sun visors. Other standard features included dual taillights, dual windshield wipers, and Solar Spark ignition. They had a Safety Signal Speedometer, which changed color with increasing speed.

The Windsor could be purchased with the Highlander package which had authentic Scotch plaid and moleskin leather upholstery.

For 1940, Chrysler re-introduced the Convertible after a one-year absence, and was only available in the Windsor line. Front-door wind wings were unique to convertible.

This 1940 Chrysler Windsor is finished in burgundy with a tan Haartz cloth top and matching burgundy leather interior. It was given a restoration which was completed in 1996, and was then awarded Antique Automobile Club of America National First and Senior honors. It won Best of Show at a national Chrysler club event.

This convertible has the front-door wind wings, Safety Signal Speedomter, and the optional hidden running boards. There are authentic bumper over-riders, a Chrysler windshield post spotlight, dual fog lights, and accessory directional signals, the latter integrated into front and rear lights. This car also has the rare overdrive transmission.

In 1940, Chrysler built just 2,275 Windsor Convertible Coupes, the lowest production of any body style except the long-wheelbase sedans and limousines.
