Virgil Exner was one of the primary individuals responsible for the post war designs at Chrysler. He became Chrysler's head of advanced styling 1949. He sourced the best elements of European styling into a series of styling exercises and by the mid-1950s had shocked the world with his 'Forward Look' of vehicle designs.

In the very early 1950s, Chrysler introduced their 331 cubic-inch FirePower V8 engine. This 'Hemi' engine was powerful, but also it was heavy and costly to produce. A few years later, the polyspherical engine was introduced that had a simpler valvetrain and was less costly to produce.

This 1956 Chrysler Windsor Sedan is an original example that has spent the last fifteen years in storage. It wears most of its original paint and is finished in black with newer paint on the roof. Inside there is a Chrysler pushbutton transmission and tinted glass, and the original salmon and black upholster with matching dash and padded dash pad. There is a dealer-installed 'Equip-Aire 707' air condition unit, power steering and power brakes.

The odometer currently reads just 40,000 miles since new. There are original air vents, gas tank and body decals and is a well-equipped cars from the mid-1950s. In 2009, this Windsor Sedan was offered for sale at the Automobiles of Amelia Island auction presented by RM Auctions. It was expected to sell for $10,000 - $15,000 and offered without reserve. The lot was sold for a high bid of $7,700, which includes buyer's premium.
