1947 Chrysler Windsor Business Coupe / 70708702 Chassis Information

1947 Chrysler Windsor
Business Coupe
Chassis #: 70708702
Sold for $27,500 at 2007 Vintage Motor Cars at Hershey.
Between 1946 through 1949, Chrysler produced a total of 1980 Windsor business coupes. It is unknown how many were produced year-by-year during this time, as Chrysler did not keep annual production records right after the war. The three-passenger business coupe is an iconic design of the 1930s and 1940s. Typically, they were offered only one the least expensive series in the marque's entry-level model. Things were different for Chrysler, as the business coupes could be found in all passenger cars lines from Plymouth to Chrysler. They were available in all series except the Imperials.

From 1946 through 1949, the business coupes were one of the more prolific of the body styles offered, representing a mere portion of the 330,000 cars produced during this period by Chrysler. The New Yorker was the most sought after business coupe variant, as it was fitted with the eight-cylinder engine. The Windsor models were fitted with a six-cylinder L-head engine that displaced 250.6 cubic-inches and produced 114 horsepower.

This vehicle's odometer reads just 10,988 miles since new. The spare tire is believed to have never been used and still has instructions for washing off its protective coating. The tires show very little wear. The exterior of the car is now painted Andante Green. There is an undercoat which has helped protect it during the years. There is some light surface rust on the frame, but overall it is in good condition. The doors close well and the chassis is straight.

This 1947 Chrysler Windsor 3-Passenger Business Coupe was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars sale at Hershey, PA presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $30,000 - $40,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for $27,500 including buyer's premium.

For 1947, the Windsor was basically just an upgraded version of the Royal. It included all Royal updates and features plus the addition of two-tone wool broadcloth upholstery. There was an electric clock, rear seat folding armrest on sedans, and carpeted front compartment. The convertibles included exterior 'goose-neck' mirrors. In comparison to their 1946 counterparts, little had changed. They were very similar tot he New Yorker line, but without the larger engine. The price ranged from around $1,480 to just under $2400, without the addition of optional equipment.
