1950 Chrysler Newport Town and Country Coupe For Sale by Auction

H&H Classics Limited - Imperial War Museum, Duxford Auction Viewing Day: Tuesday 18th June 2019 Auction Day: Wednesday 19th June 2019 @ 13:00. Estimate: £23,000 - £26,000 Registration No:Un-Reg Chassis No:7411821 MOT:Exempt - 1 of just 698 made and more expensive when new than a Cadillac Coupe de Ville - Found in a barn during the 1990s with 24,000 miles recorded as corroborated by various service stickers (now showing 42,000 miles) and since repainted and rechromed - Timewarp original interior and 1 of only 2 'Black with Black' cars known to have survived - 5.3 litre straight-eight engine allied to semi-automatic transmission - Retains all its factory fitted timberwork (albeit reconditioned) - EU Taxes Paid With a base price of over $4,000, the Chrysler Town & Country Newport Coupe was the most expensive closed car to come out of Detroit in 1950 (excluding limousines and corporation sedans). Costing circa $500 more than the Cadillac Coupe de Ville and $1,000 more than the Kaiser Virginian, the one-year-only model was advertised as possessing the `low swept, road hugging lines of a convertible with a permanent solid steel top that gives the comfort and convenience of a sedan'. Very much a `lifestyle woodie', its distinctive but non-structural white ash wood trim was meticulously hand formed. Beautifully tailored and designed, the plush interior was upholstered in leather with nylon cord inserts. Powered by a 323.5ci (5.3 litre) `Spitfire' straight-eight engine allied to four-speed semi-automatic transmission, the luxurious four-seater had need of its innovative hydraulic four-wheel Ausco-Lambert disc brakes. An accomplished cruiser with road presence to spare, the 1950 Town & Country Newport Coupe proved to be the last of Chrysler's iconic lifestyle woodies recording just 698 sales. Sporting a `Ray Ridge, Detroit' supplier's plaque to its trunk, chassis 7411821 is one of only two known survivors finished in Black with Black leather / Silver Grey Nylon Cord upholstery. Discovered in a barn during 1994, its odometer reading of 25,000 miles was corroborated by various service stickers. Treated to a repaint to combat the effects of bird lime, the four-seater also benefited from a thorough engine and transmission overhaul. The timewarp cabin was untouched but the exterior ash was restored. Now displaying a warranted 41,000 miles to its odometer, this exceptional Chrysler is described by the vendor as `very good' (bodywork, paintwork, interior trim) or `excellent' (engine, transmission, electrical equipment). Further enhanced since being imported into Germany (EU taxes paid) via the re-chroming of its windscreen surround and front / rear bumpers at a cost of c.5,000 Euros, the four-seater is worthy of close inspection.
