Chrysler Town and Country, Black, for sale in Escondido, California, for $149,900.
At the conclusion of the Second World War, the automobile manufactures ceased production of military material and resumed production of automobiles. Chrysler introduced the Town and Country line for their post-war selection, featuring both sedans and convertibles. The body style was the most memorable with its name coming from the combination of the steel front end representing 'Town' and the wood panel representing 'Country. ' The body is framed in white ash and required extensive hand work; as a result, production of Town and Country models ceased in 1950. The four-door sedan was marketed as an 'Estate Car' and was well received by the public. This car has been toured for thousands of miles, all trouble free.
The 'Town & Country' name is credited to Paul Hafer, of the Boyertown Body Works. Hafer drew sketches of wood-bodied wagons, and said, 'The front end looked 'town' and the rear looked 'country' so I thought it natural. ' The convertible was the first Town & Country released, at a price of $2,743. Sedan and wagon versions of the Town & Country were also released, but the convertible was the most favored. A total of 8,368 of these were produced from 1946 through 1948. The wood trim of the vehicle covers all surfaces from the cowl back, with the exception of the rear fenders. This example has recently undergone a complete restoration, with the aim of preserving as much of the original wood as possible. The ash wood is original, . Standard features on this car included two-speed windshield wipers, cut-pile carpeting, and spotlights. This 47 Chrysler Town & Country 'Woody' four-door sedan is clearly the most famous Town & Country sedans
Production. There were 2,651 1947 Town & Country Sedans produced; they were priced at $2,713.
After the war, the most significant change in the Chryslers involved the Town & Country, which was no longer a wagon but a separate series of six - and eight-cylinder sedans and convertibles. Chrysler had promised a full line of non-wagon Town & Countrys, including a two-door brougham sedan and even a true roadster and a hardtop coupe.
