Chrysler celebrated their 25th anniversary in 1949, and the company introduced its all-new post-war models in March of that year. The new Town and Country model now featured an all-steel structure and was the first 'Town & Country' model that did not include the white ash framing as part of the structure of the car. Di-Noc mahogany panels were initially used on the ash framing, but part way through the model run they were eliminated and the inset panels were now painted the same color as the body. Two bodystyles were offered, including the convertible and a new two-door hardtop coupe (although none were produced). Total production reached 993 examples of the convertible.

This particular Town and Country Convertible is a late production example and one of the last 50 examples produced. It wears its original color of Indian Maroon, with a maroon convertible top and chrome wire wheels. Inside is red leather and tartan fabric. There is a clock and radio.

In 1991, the car was treated to a complete restoration. By this point in history it was owned by Bruce Earlin of Milford, Pennsylvania, under whose ownership it won a special award at the Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance in 2006. It was then sold to Thomas F. Derro, who sold it in 2017 to its current owner.
