This is perhaps one of the rarest production Chryslers in existence. The registry shows that there are 11 of these magnificent cars left from the original 999 made. 1942 was the second year of production for The Town and Country but most collectors prefer the 1942 model because of the wide front grill that extends into the front fenders and is repeated with the same grill spears at the back of the rear fender as though the car was wrapped in art deco spears. Wood was fashionable in this era and this car could be found on estates on Long Island and Connecticut. The car was made on the limousine chassis and was offered as a three seat nine passenger vehicle. The rear wood treatment was rounded like a barrel with club doors that opened for luggage thus the designation of Barrel back.
