1947 CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY CONVERTIBLE

Back in July I posted a photo I had taken of a 1947 Chrysler Town and Country Convertible at Celina’s Lake Festival.

This week I completed an artwork of the car.

From 1946 to 1948 Chrysler produced approximately 8300 of these elegant convertibles. The model was produced by laying mahogany veneer and ash trim over the metal body of a Chrysler New Yorker. Power was provided by a 323.5 cubic inch straight eight engine that produced 135 horsepower. Adding to the cars distinctiveness and luxury was an electrically-operated top. RMB
