Update….1949 Chrysler Windsor Coupe First Series - $10,000 - Not Mine - Lakeland, MN


Recommended Posts

I have rode my bicycle at least 20 times past this person’s house (this season) and never knew this car was in his garage. I talked with him today, he inherited the car from his grandfather and is motivated to sell. I would be happy to inspect for someone who would be interested. I have no interest in the sale nor any connection to the seller.

Did you drive it Jeff? If I lived where you do I'd have a hard time staying away from this. 

Between our schedules this week we can’t get together until Saturday. I am not a player but just wish to compare driving characteristics to my ‘48 NYer.

You have to have a critical mass of cars that you rotate in and out like a shell game. Then it all becomes a blur, and you can say we’ve always owned that!

I would think this should drive the same as your 48.  It's essentially a 48 hold over.  They probably didn't have the 49's fine tuned yet to release them and or a pile of parts to use up. 

 Actually, there was a labor strike going on when the 49's should have been coming out, so the leftover 48's were sold as 49's.

Update…..I drove this car today, started, stopped, idled, shifted as it should. 50 mph no shakes or rattles. Has some rust repair in the rockers and some of the body mounts are rusty. Floors and trunk good. Chrome OK. I think about 7K could get it, it would make a fun driver with some TLC.

I like it. I think Chrysler  dropped the three window coupe for 49 in this was the only one?

AJ:

You'll have to assemble your own 1949-'52 Chrysler three-window coupe: take a 131" wb New Yorker/Imperial chassis, mount a 1949-'52 Dodge three-window coupe or roadster body.  Trim it in the model year and options of choice.  A project for the truly hardcore Mopar fan.

Steve

 

BTW, as similar as the Plymouths look, those bodies are Plymouth-exclusive, a scaled-down version of the common shared Dodge/DeSoto/Chrysler units.

She's a looker. Nice coupe. That's a big car, perfect for Sunday drives. A little work here and there to address a couple things, then  you've got a fun car at a very low entry price into the vintage car hobby.   According to my library, the car should have a 251 ci engine 

 

 I never see these around my areas. Never at shows. Never on the road. Never our cruising. None to be had it seems.
