A rare and exciting early Chrysler with desirable Red Head high-compression engine. Mille Miglia and LeMans Classic Eligible.
This charming 1928 Chrysler Model 72 Sport Roadster is a wonderful example recently out of a prominent collection. Wearing an older but high-quality restoration performed by the respected experts at Prueitt Restorations of Glen Rock, Pennsylvania, it still presents in outstanding condition. This charismatic roadster looks wonderful in its vivid paint scheme, which was part of a marketing ploy used to attract well-to-do young buyers to the sporty Chrysler line. The paint presents in excellent condition overall, remaining quite attractive since the restoration was completed. Body and panel fit is quite good, in keeping with the high quality construction these Chryslers enjoyed when new. Chrome and brightwork is also presented very nicely, with excellent quality plating on the bumpers, radiator, lamps and accessories. Being a deluxe-trim Sport roadster, it is equipped with wire wheels, dual sidemount spares, chrome plated drum-type Depress Beam headlights, dual matching cowl lights, wind-wings and a trunk rack. The radiator is topped with the “Mercury Wing” mascot and the body features a golf-bag door and a generously sized rumble seat with good quality upholstery.
