1947 Chrysler Windsor Highlander Convertible For Sale by Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' Hershey event, 10 - 11 October 2019. Estimate:$30,000 - $40,000 Single-family ownership since 1975Recent restoration in correct Sumac RedAn original, plaid-trimmed Highlander convertible Following World War II, all the domestic auto manufacturers were selling warmed-over versions of their pre-war cars. Chrysler was no exception, offering updated 1942 models from 1946–1948. Some 11,200 Windsor convertibles were produced over the three-year period, all powered by a 114 hp, 250-cubic-inch “Spitfire” six-cylinder engine. The semi-automatic Fluid Drive transmission was optional at $32.Having been purchased by the consigner’s father from a Hemmings ad in 1975, he drove the car home from New York to Canada. Described as a fine original car, it was toured regularly by the family until purchased by the consignor from his mother a few years following his father’s passing in 1994. The engine was rebuilt in 1989–1990, and it is described as still being a “great-running and wonderful driving car.” The Highlander was restored five years ago, including new paint, new interior, a detailed engine compartment, and a new convertible top and tires. Finished in a correct Sumac Red with tan canvas roof, it was refitted with the correct Highlander plaid interior at the time of restoration. The Highlander insignia on the dash notes that this car was delivered as such, and it remains to this day. It is equipped with desirable extras, including Fluid Drive, radio, and heater, as well as whitewall tires, which became optional in 1947.In the trunk one will find the original trunk mat and what the consignor believes to be the original spare tire. It has been driven countless miles by the family prior to restoration and approximately 1,000 miles since restoration. The Chrysler has never been shown, though taken to local events, and is the ideal car for family enjoyment. The consignor calls it a “proven runner,” properly sorted and ready to enjoy.Please note that the tools and jack are not included with the car.
