1947 Chrysler Town & Country

1947 Chrysler Town & Country

0.00

After WWII, automobile manufacturers had shifted to all-steel construction methods.  The T&C, however, showcased exceptional workmanship in the wood structure that makes up most of the body. What you see on the outside is white ash framing with mahogany paneling. In 1947, the convertible outsold the hardtop versions of the T&C, but by 1951, structural wood had been abandoned in favor of decorative vinyl appliqués. For a great history of the model, complete with construction techniques and materials, see this great piece by the Auto Editors of Consumer Guide.
