Although Chrysler completely redesigned its full range for 1949 the appeal of the Town & Country convertible and the showroom traffic it drew assured it would be continued.
The redesign made it impractical to continue the early T&C's wood paneled bodies, so Chrysler opted for ash framing applied to the underlying steel panels and Dinoc transfers for the mahogany pattern panels.
Later Town & Countrys were Royal Station Wagons and Newport hardtops, making the 1949 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country convertible the last of this famed and desirable series.
This 1949 Chrysler New Yorker Town & Country convertible is attractively presented in Ocean Blue with blue and white upholstery and a tan cloth top, it has chrome wire wheels, wide whitewall tires, clock, radio and a power-operated top.
The quiet, smooth and powerful 135hp Chrysler inline eight cylinder engine drives through Chrysler's Fluid Drive semi-automatic transmission. It has been restored to be a beautifull touring car with a nicely detailed engine compartment, good paint, chrome and interior.
A fine summer driver, it combines Chrysler's quality engineering, proven drivetrain and the visual distinction of the wood-framed Town & Country body in one of Chrysler's more rare (only 993 built) and memorable body styles.
