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.
