SUMMARY

A delightful piece of mid-1950s Americana, attractively presented with an amazing interior.

DESCRIPTION

  • Although Virgil Exner restyled most of the Chrysler range in 1955, the more conservative Windsor models were not included
  • By 1956, however, his new 'Forward Look' was adopted by Windsor Sedans, and tailfins, although small compared to later years, appeared for the first time
  • Powered by a 5.4-litre (331ci) V8 offering 225bhp and 310lb/ft of torque. 3-speed, push-button operated auto transmission
  • This four-door Windsor saloon was purchased by our vendor in 2018 and has formed part of his collection since
  • Classically presented in Cloud White and Raven Black with lots of chrome and whitewall tyres
  • If the exterior is conventional, the interior is anything but, being dramatically finished in vibrant orange and black and appears to have been fully restored/retrimmed fairly recently
  • Since its purchase, it's benefitted from extensive repairs, including a new core, new headlining and many other improvements
  • It's accompanied by an unusually large history file for an American import which includes an original sales brochure and Bill of Sale and there are a couple of boxes of original spares in the boot
