1941 chrysler


Just for fun, I went to the classifieds at Hemmings.com to see what the most expensive station wagon was, and what it listed for.  And this 1941 Chrysler Town & Country Barrel Back is it.   Evidently it is very rare and is one of the most coveted of all wood-bodied cars, for it is listed at $495,000!  Almost half a mil for a station wagon?  You go, Barrel Back!

1941 Chrysler Windsor Barrel back 9 seater station wagon. 121 in wheelbase with a 112 bhp 6 cylinder ‘Spitfire’ engine and fluid drive Vacumatic gearbox. This one, of very few and even fewer survivors, was delivered to Warner Brothers and appeared in several films. It’s been awarded a first class at Pebble Beach and it cost $1,475 new. Quite special I think.
