Prior to the Chrysler Town and Country convertible, a car with a wooden body meant you were driving some kind of utility vehicle. Maybe a delivery truck or something on the farm. Then, in 1941, Chrysler introduced a wood-bodied sedan with lavish detailing and fine upholstery.
What were they thinking? Well, Chrysler wanted wealthy, well-heeled customers who’d be enticed by a car sophisticated enough to warrant a chauffeur but practical enough for country living. In they end, they took the basic idea behind their steel-bodied sedans and upgraded everything about the materials, with the highlight being the bodies of white ash with Honduran mahogany panels. Expect this 1947 Chrysler Town and Country Convertible to go for around $160,000.
