About this 1948 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible For Sale:
We could not be more proud to offer this 1948 Chrysler Town & Country Convertible finished in factory-correct paint code 8- Gunmetal Grey over 42- Burgundy Leather/ Tan Broadmoor Cord cloth interior, and Black cloth soft top! Having been restored both cosmetically and mechanically, it is a brilliant blend of both honest original and professionally restored! Features include original 324ci Spitfire L-head Straight 8 producing 135hp mated to the sophisticated, and perfectly operating Fluid-Drive semi-automatic 4-speed transmission. Options include power-operated folding top, dual MOPAR spotlights, dual outside mirrors, Marvel Mystery Inverse oiling system, dual trumpet horns, pushbutton AM radio, turn signals, Comfort Master heater, front-rear bumper guards, and 8.20-15 Firestone Deluxe Champion wide whitewall tires!
This outstanding example received a professional, engine out re-spray of the paintwork while remaining on the original frame leaving the undercarriage original to the 87,820 miles showing on the odometer. The original wood with factory finger joints and color tones all remain intact and in exceptional condition! The fresh paintwork is outstanding along with brand new convertible top & interior carpet all match the gorgeous re-chromed exterior components for a showroom new appearance!
Inside, the car survived with an all original interior when it arrived to our facility. We made the decision based on the condition of the visual look of the dry leather that it required replacement. The original cloth fabric was retained to support the originality, and only the leather on the outside seating surfaces, armrests, visors, and brand new rear boot cover were replaced. The door panels and rear side cards remain original. It continues to run with its 1948 date-code original engine bearing unit #C3963277 (titled off engine) with original components that include 6-volt Chrysler/Autolite electrical system (starter/distributor/generator), Ball & Ball carburetor, new cloth-covered cloth wiring, original engine splash pans, engine heat shields, replacement decal stickers, new hoses factory-style clamps, all riding on a super solid original chassis with factory floor pans & excellent body mounts! This example will also include spare tire, jack, bag of tools, and boot cover bag.
A Full CCCA Classic!
