Town & Country
Chassis #: 71002423
High bid of $52,000 at 2009 Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook. (did not sell)
Chrysler's first Town and Country was introduced in 1941 on the six-cylinder Royal line. The body style was a wood-bodied, barrel-back sedan with a fastback profile with twin hinged 'barn doors' at the rear. There were exactly 999 built and 200 of them in six-passenger configuration. The rest had three bench seats allowing up-to 9 passengers. A similar lineup was continued into 1942, with nearly identical production despite the war-shortened model year.

When World War II came to an end, Chrysler planned to expand the range with five body styles. However, only a conventional trunk-back sedan and an eight-cylinder convertible coupe were built. There were just 100 long-wheelbase eight-cylinder sedans built and the rest were six-cylinder cars on the shorter Windsor wheelbase.

The second-series 1949 line dropped the Town & Country sedan, and for 1950 the model was only available on the eight-cylinder line in hardtop coupe configuration with painted insert panels. The Town and Country line continued for many years, thereafter, enjoying a long succession of Chrysler steel-bodied station wagons and minivans.

This example is a nearly original, 31,000 mile car. In 2009, it was brought to RM Auctions 'Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook' where it was estimated to sell for $75,000-$100,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot failed to sell after reaching a high bid of $52,000.
