The low-slung but roomy and comfortable full-size Chrysler Windsor was introduced in 1939, and by 1941 the body was wider, lower and had a larger glass area front and rear as well as wider spacing between the six chrome horizontal grille bars instead of the nine bars of the previous year. The steering wheel also featured no spokes in the upper half for increased driver visibility. A Fluid Drive transmission was standard on all Chrysler models in 1941, and Chrysler’s rugged 242 cubic inch inline-six allowed for strong, smooth performance with 108 horsepower. Available in a broad range of body styles, the Windsor could be had as a six-passenger sedan, six-passenger coupe, convertible, Victoria sedan, eight-passenger sedan or Town & Country wagon.
This 1941 Chrysler Windsor is a very rare and highly desirable convertible model, one of 4,432 built, and comes from the impressive collection of former General Motors executive Bob Lutz.
Finished in a pleasing dark green, it has a maroon leather interior with tan cloth inserts, a tan cloth top and a maroon top boot. It also features body color steel wheels, hub caps and trim rings, wide whitewall tires, electric clock, heater, radio, dual mirrors and a power-operated top. The paint and chrome on this example are in fine condition, and the interior, with the spacious, comfortable back seat and gorgeous original plastic on the dash and steering wheel, is a particularly pleasant place to be. Accompanying the car are an original owner's manual, original sales brochures, original colr chats, and several other interesting pieces of literature. With less than 5,000 of these sporting and comfortable Windsor Convertibles built in 1941, they are alluringly rare and collectible, and this example in particular is a solid, straight car that is ready for many miles of pleasurable top-down motoring.
