When production resumed in 1946, price fixing became the law of the land in the US for car makers. Manufacturers would have to price the the 1946 cars the same as 1942 models unless they were models that were not made prior to the war. Such was the case with the postwar Chrysler Town and Country cars. These post war versions were not subject to price fixing. Wood was still fashionable so Chrysler turned out over 8000 of these profitable cars in the convertible and sedan configuration from 46 to 48. They were sold to Hollywood stars and the industrial elites. Survival rate was low on these beautiful cars as they were passed to second and third owners that did not follow the maintenance regimen for wood maintenance. Our Chrysler has benefited by a full restoration in our own shop. It has won many first place awards. Recently these Town and Country cars have been elevated to classic status by CCCA.
