'27 Chrysler $13K


Recommended Posts

The ad says "won't last long at this price". Perhaps that means it will soon be reduced. It looks like a nice example and I am partial  to Chrysler, but this model is really closer to Maxwell:  Model I50...38HP and 2 wheel brakes. A '28 Buick in similar condition was just posted on this forum for $12,9K. It's A LOT more car (and sad to say better supported with clubs and user groups).

The seller described the body as "all steel".  Not true unless I'm mistaken. The seller might mean "all steel" as opposed to fiberglass, but these Chryslers were made of wood structure (as were most other cars of the era) with metal covering the wood. All the top and door posts were wood. The body seems to be in good shape on this car, so it's not a problem, but a buyer should understand what he is buying.

Right you are! I bought a '26 Chrysler sedan many years ago. The guy who was delivering it to me got on the freeway in downtown LA on a winter's night in a big rainstorm. After about 5 miles, the whole top and back window blew off! Rotten wood! Must have been quite a shock to the people behind him!

They said it "won't last long at this price"...and I guess they are correct because it's now $12,000.
