1929 Chrysler Model 75 Roadster

A fun, unique and affordable entry to Mille Miglia and Le Mans Classic or any number of driving events. Well-maintained and presented with a charming patina.​

Charming and attractive, this 1929 Series 75 Roadster is a lovely example of Chrysler’s first performance car. Sporting a good quality, older restoration that benefits from some recent freshening, it presents with an honest patina. Little is known of the car’s earliest history; however it has remained in the same family since 1999, getting serviced and tidied-up as needed. The roadster body is in good condition, finished in an attractive primrose yellow and black combination with red pinstripes. Paintwork on the main body is from the initial restoration, and while it presents well, the lacquer is cracking in places, and some other minor imperfections are found. More recently, the fenders were repainted in black and present in very good condition. The brightwork is consistent with a well maintained, older restoration, and the car is nicely accessorized with dual sidemount spare wheels, “Hermes helmet” radiator mascot, wind wings, and a trunk rack. Wooden artillery wheels were an option; however, this example rides on attractive chrome wire wheels accented with red rims that tie in nicely with the coach lines. Wide whitewall tires complete the period sporty look.
