As the US sank deeper into the great depression, Chrysler introduced the first eight cylinder models, including the new top of the line Imperial Series on an extended 145” wheelbase. With its long hood and flowing front fenders, the new Imperial have been considered the most beautiful ever model. The Imperials front was based on an L29 car and included a V-shaped radiator grill and slanted front windshield. Vertical louvers were on the sides of the hood, which wore a winged cap Gazelle Mascot on the front. Other Imperial features were leather upholstery, 17” wire wheels, twin side mounted spare tires, outside rear view mirrors and a trunk rack. The 384 cu. in, 6.3 liter engine was Chrysler’s largest ever. It is believed that 50 were produced in 1932, with 14 being sold as 32’s and 36 were sold as 33‘s. The Imperial is an automobile that is graced with elegance, and after three quarters of a century, still possesses a positively seismic “wow” factor.

 
1942 Chrysler Woodie

The Windsor Town & Country Wagon (referred to as the C-34) was introduced in March 1941. The interior came standard with leather upholstery. The unique design of the back end with Cabinet Style doors gave its name “Barrel Back”. The centre seat can be stowed in a forward position to enlarge the trunk or in a rear position to enhance passenger leg room. The “BarrelBack” was produced for only two years. The Windsor Town & Country six and nine passenger wagons were the only wood bodied cars made by Chrysler in 1941 & 1942. The wood for the Town & Country was furnished by the Pekin Wood Products Co in Helena, Arkansas. The cars were assembled at the Jefferson Avenue Plant in Detroit, Michigan. Production ended abruptly in February 1942, when all American Automobile Production was curtailed for the duration of Word War 2. Total Production figures indicate that 849 Chrysler Nine Passenger Windsor Town and Country Wagons were manufactured, however total production numbers were never reached due to war time curtailments. Body numbers suggest that only 500-600, 1942 Town & Country six & nine passenger wagons combined may have been produced of which only 16 are known to survive today.

The 1957 300C was the third version of the 300 letter cars and had the distinction of being the most powerful and fastest production car in the country. The 300c’s overall lines were clean from its quad headlights to its pair of lofty tail fins. The 300C was almost completely free of side trim, except for a thin quarter panel moulding that ended in a circular red, white and blue 300C emblem. The 300C’s trapezoid-shaped grill featured an egg-crate patten. Below the headlights, rectangular scoops fed cool air to the front brakes. It could easily be called Chrysler’s crowning achievement of the decade and the most seductive combination of style and performance. The legendary designer, Virgil Exner’s, look was characterized by a tall, sweeping fender line that was instrumental in providing a clean wedge-shaped aerodynamic appearance.
