This Chrysler Windsor Limousine is truly an extra special original automobile having received a cosmetic restoration in 2001 maintaining the elegant patina only a well-cared for and well maintained original automobile can achieve.
It is the smoothest, quietest running ol’ gal I have ever driven.
According to the original sales invoice W. E. Walker of Riverside, Illinois purchased the Windsor new from an Oak Park, Illinois Chrysler dealer.
A 1956 Arizona registration still shows it owned by Mr. Walker. Numerous receipts show a long list of parts purchased from well-known Chrysler vendors for its restoration.
A complete new original style blue cloth interior was installed, including headliner and carpets. The near perfect original black vinyl in front was left untouched. The Spitfire engine, Hydraulic Fluid Drive transmission and overall mechanics have been restored and operate like new.
Fold out “opera” seats are located just to the rear of the division window. She maintains her original chrome hubcaps, Comfort Master heater and defroster and original Philco AM radio (lights up, no sound, we depend on iPods for period music so never bothered with the tube radio).
The odometer reads 2,995, so 102,995 is likely, an average of 1,522 miles per year in 67 years. Its overall condition inside and out attests to this mileage being correct.
It is doubtful this Chrysler Limousine ever spent a night out of the garage was ever driving in the rain during its lifetime. It has been meticulously cared for and maintained since new.
She always gets “thumbs up” when cruising around town or on the freeway at speed. Always provided front row parking at restaurants and events ahead of Rolls, Ferraris.
This lovely lady would compete nicely in original car classes if winning trophies were of interest.
