1948 Chrysler Windsor Convertibile - Documented Since 1948!
A Show-Winning, Beautifully Restored Luxury Convertible - Absolutely Fascinating History
Meadow Green with Tan Power Top & Green/Tan Interior
Chrysler "Spitfire" 6 Cylinder Engine w/ Fluid-Drive Semi-Automatic Transmission
This luxury convertible is a fine example of a bygone era when each marque had a true personality and was readily recognizable, even from a distance. This solid, restored Chrysler has been beautifully and lovingly restored in a body-on fashion. It shows and drives beautifully but is a true driver, not a trailer queen. It is ready for a new owner to proudly cruise and show.
The car bears VIN# 70687196, properly attached to the driver's side door jamb. The current odometer reading is 31,700 miles. It must be judged "total miles unknown" due to its 67 year age but, based on all appearances, the car does appear to be a low mileage example. One thing is very apparent, the car has been incredibly well maintained by its limited owners.
HISTORY OF THIS PARTICULAR CAR
The extensive records indicate that this car has had only 4 owners. It was sold new on October 8, 1948, by the dealer Hannum & Waite in Swarthmore, PA for a total of $2,824.01. This rather high price for 1948 is indicative of the luxury status of this model. The car remained in Pennsylvania with this original owner for 40 years. In 1988, it was sold to the second owner in Northern California where a body-on restoration was finished in 1991 as evidenced by the receipt file. It was later sold to a gentleman in Oregon who freshened the restoration in 2007 with new paint and a new top and boot. The car was finally purchased by the current Washington State owner in 2007. The current owner has lovingly maintained and shown the car for the past 8 years...
