With one of the most recognizable faces in the postwar American automobile world, Chrysler's mid- to late 1940s models still look fresh. It is a recipient of restoration which received a senior 1st place Antique Automobile Club of America (AACA) award in 1990 - and still shows well today.

The Windsor was almost identical to the more luxurious Chrysler New Yorker in terms of size, interior and standard features except that it was only available with the Chrysler Straight Six that .....
originally started the company in 1925. The Windsor was mechanically similar to the down-level Royal from 1939 to 1950 and offered more standard equipment and an upscale interior to the well-equipped Royal.

This example was made in Chrysler's Jefferson Street factory in Detroit, Michigan. Dressed in Regal Maroon (code 16), the car's paint and trim are in overall excellent shape. The chrome, wraparound bumpers fit tightly to the body, the engine bay is extremely tidy and the huge grille is unmistakable. The car's exterior chrome is either new or has been refinished. Paint still holds a wonderful shine with some blemishes and crackage most notable on the hood.

This car rolls wide whitewall bias-ply tires mounted on steel wheels topped with factory wheel covers and all are in good shape.

Under the hood is a 251 CID straight six-cylinder engine, the company's bread-and-butter motor since 1925. Mated to the motor is a Presto-Matic two-speed semi-automatic transmission and a 3.9:1 rear end.

Inside, there is a custom tan and maroon leather interior. The bench seats look great, as does the red carpet, the red metal dashboard and the big, red-rimmed steering wheel. Window crank knobs in globe box. The inner door panels look great and all interior brightwork is new or has been refreshed. A full array of ancillary gauges accompanies the speedometer. There are accessories like a clock and under-dash heater. A factory AM radio rounds out the interior. Temp gauge and horn are inop. Convertible top works, but slow when going up.

For 1947, the Presto-Matic semi-automatic transmission was offered with the traditional three speed manual transmission. The Town & Country station wagon became its own model line but the six-cylinder engine used the Windsor wheelbase as before. New items included a handbrake warning signal that warned when the handbrake was not fully released and a new die-cast grille.

This Chrysler deserves a new home, so won't you come by MotoeXotica Classic Cars a take look for yourself?
