AutoHunter Spotlight: 1946 Chrysler Town & Country convertible

Award-winning, postwar convertible up for auction


Today’s AutoHunter Spotlight is on an award-winning, first-generation 1946 Chrysler Town & Country convertible that underwent a professional frame-off restoration.

During the restoration, which the ad notes the seller invested close to $200,000 in, the Town & Country was repainted in marron and the ash wood framing and mahogany panels were refinished. All the exterior brightwork was also re-chromed during the restoration.

The professionally reupholstered interior is fitted with maroon leather with broadcloth inserts. A two-tone maroon and black metal dash houses a factory Mopar 802 Philco radio that’s been restored and upgraded with an FM conversion.
