The car that Chrysler wanted to build, but never did. There is only one Chrysler Town and Country Roadster. This car is NOT A REPLICA, OR A CUSTOM, it is hand crafted, pure image of a car that never came to fruition. Though Chrysler never produced a Town and Country Roadster, one was produced with Excellent Paint- and Woodwork~~Built by John Slusar and Lloyd Mayes, the project was completed during the late 1990~~This was a project undertake by enthusiasts and began with a donor car, the Chrysler Windsor Sedan. Since there had never been any molds or plans created, extensive amount of time and research was undertaken before the project began to get every possible detail correct. The biggest roadmap for creating the designs was an oil painting. Help was sought from all areas such as documentation, personnel, letters, photos, and more. Experts on the Town and Country were utilized in creating the designs as they would have been~~It is finished in Sumac red and embodies the spirit of what the Town and Country Roadster may have been if it had been produced and come to fruition in 1946~~ During the early years of automobile production, wood-bodied vehicles were mostly used as work vehicles. As time progressed, wood-bodied cars became a status symbol and grew in popularity. Woodies, as they became known, required a high-level of craftsmanship and as such, were considered a luxury option, or a nice-to-have, on a vehicle~~ After World War II, the automotive market saw a large increase in the number of manufacturers offering wood-bodied cars. Most were offered on station wagons however, it was not uncommon to see them on convertibles~~ For 1946, Chrysler advertised five different Town and Country models all outfitted with wood bodies. Their goal had been to become the first manufacturer to offer a complete line of woody bodies to the public. The idea was a concept, and the goal was rather ambitious. In the end, the gamble proved to be well timed for the Chrysler marque, though, only two of the five body-styles were produced in significant numbers. The sedan and convertible were the most popular. Though the Roadster and Club Coupe had been advertised, no plans, documentation or models were ever created~~A well-done Town and Country Convertible always attracts the most attention and typically become one of the favorites in any classic car collection~~~ There is nothing like this Chrysler Town and Country Roadster, simply a stunning car, a one of one~~~~~~~LOCATED in Southeast Florida~~~~~Independent Inspections Available WeBe Autos Specializes in Marketing and Advertising Muscle, Classic, Vintage and Specialty Cars.
