The early post World War II years were good to all American carmakers, and particularly good to Chrysler. No civilian cars had been built since early 1942 and by the time production resumed in late 1945 the existing vehicle stock had been seriously depleted. Add to the mix tens of thousands of GIs coming home with accumulated savings, mustering-out pay and the earnings of their civilian counterparts in the defense industry and auto makers could sell anything they built. Chrysler, like its counterparts at GM and Ford, built what it'd offered in 1942 with a few detail changes to interior and exterior trim. Little things coming from defense industry development during the war began to show themselves like injection molded plastic knobs and trim. And Chrysler's solid engineering meant other developments were incorporated in engines, transmissions and chassis. This 1947 Chrysler Windsor Highlander convertible is subtly liveried in maroon but with maroon leather and decidedly un-subtle plaid cloth upholstery and a tan cloth power top. It is equipped with optional Fluid Drive, has dual remotely-operated spotlights, a heater, fog lights, bumper over riders and chrome wire wheels with whitewall tires. The paint, chrome, upholstery and top are in very good condition, a pretty driver that looks good around town or on tours and will reward a new owner with a distinctive postwar Chrysler.
