Description

This 1946 Chrysler Town & Country convertible was the recipient of a professional frame-off restoration that involved a full repaint, a new interior, and refinished exterior brightwork with wood trim. It features a refurbished factory radio, new Coker tires, and a new radiator. Powered by a 323ci straight-8 paired with a fluid drive semi-automatic transmission.

All exterior brightwork was re-chromed at the time, and the wood trim with ash framing and mahogany panels was refinished. The tan canvas soft convertible top is in excellent condition as per the seller, and fit and finish throughout the exterior was a key component of the restoration effort.

The interior was professionally reupholstered as part of the restoration and is fitted with maroon leather with broadcloth inserts along with matching door panels, a two-tone maroon and black metal dash, and new maroon carpeting. The factory Mopar 802 Philco radio has a unique vertical layout flanked by an analog clock and has been restored and upgraded with an FM conversion. The trunk spring openers have been converted to gas-assisted struts.

Instrumentation is framed by a 3-spoke steering wheel and includes a 110-mph speedometer along with accompanying gauges for fuel, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The 5-digit mechanical odometer has a low reading and true mileage on the chassis is unknown.

The 323ci straight-8 made 135 horsepower when new but has been rebuilt and received a new radiator from Brass Works. The electrical system was fully serviced and a new wiring loom from Y&Z was installed. Power is transferred to the rear wheels through a fluid drive semi-automatic transmission and a column-mounted shift lever.
