Chrysler’s Town and Country Wagon was the most expensive model in the 1953 lineup more than the New Yorker convertible. Extensive wood was used in the interior rear floor and the seats were made of Tolex, a special stamped material made to look like animal skin. This wagon was not made to haul kids, dogs and heavy cargo. Chrysler marketed the Town and Country to the well to do. It was found on estates where the rich lived and played.
Our Chrysler wagon was delivered new to a couple in Idaho who were sadly killed in anther car accident. The sister of one kept the car for years in storage before finally turning it to a collector. The result is only 34 K miles from new were clocked on the speedometer. The car is entirely excellent original inside and out with the exception of the roof that had to be repainted because of some scratches received from storage of boxes. The car is powered by the fabulous Chrysler Hemi engine and has the optional wire wheels offered in 1953. This may be the nicest original Chrysler Town and Country in existence.
