Magasin beskrivelse

Vi har fått denne sjeldne og fine 1955 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe Convertible i innbytte på en av våre andre klassiske biler.

Vi har utført en komplett lakkrens og polering og hatt bilen inne for teknisk sjekk på vårt MECA verksted. Sjelden vi har sett en så fin bil kosmetisk og teknisk. Denne må ses, priset langt under hva du klarer å ta en tilsvarende bil hjem for fra USA. Her har du sjansen til å skaffe deg en fin 50-taller som du nesten sikkert ikke vil møte maken til i Norge. Denne bilen kan nå ses i vår butikk i Slettaveien 19 i Son.

HISTORIEN OM  CHRYSLER WINDSOR DELUXE
Known for developing high quality vehicles, the Chrysler Corporation was established by Walter Percy Chrysler on June 6, 1925. Existing as an independent company from 1925 until 1998, it was then purchased by Daimler-Benz. Labeled as the Chrysler group, the full-size Chrysler Windsor was introduced in the 1940’s. Larger than a mid-size and sitting on a wheelbase of more than 2.79 meters, the full-size Windsor was sold from the 1940’s through the 1960’s.

Releasing a fairly new design for the time, the 1940 Chrysler Windsor was a convertible type that was very attractive to consumers. The option of an adjustable top was a very pleasant feature to buyers. The convertible type was fairly new at the time and extremely popular.

Equipped with the newly developed Fluid Drive transmission system that allowed the driver to shift without using the clutch, the Windsor was a rear wheel drive car that had an S6 configuration. The 1940’s Windsor was capable of producing 108 bhp at 3600 rpm.

A new batch of Windsor models were released by the Chrysler Corporation in 1953. Continuing in rear wheel drive form, the engine was situated in the front. This time around a V8 engine powered the Chrysler Windsor. Capable of a very secure ride, the new Windsor featured a 230 bhp and torque of 310 ft-lbs. A 3-speed automatic transmission was now offered. Able to seat up to five passengers, the new Windsor was both roomy and comfortable.

The final Chrysler Windsor known to Americans was introduced in 1961 for only two years, 1965 and 1966. In Canada, the Chrysler Corporation released a Windsor model basically equivalent to the Newport in the U.S. for those years.
