Part of the ‘Big-Three’, Chrysler has been a mainstay of the American automobile industry since the 1920s. Within the company, the Chrysler was always marketed as the top brand, with the most luxuries, followed by Dodge, DeSoto and Plymouth.
Following World War II, all the American auto manufacturers were selling reworked versions of their pre-war cars. Chrysler was no exception, offering updated 1942 models from 1946–1948. Some 160,000 Windsor sedans were produced over the three-year period, all powered by a 114 hp, 250-cubic-inch “Spitfire” six-cylinder engine. The semiautomatic Fluid Drive transmission was standard on the Windsor sold in India. The model largely remained the same over the three years.
The Chrysler Windsor was quite popular in India, post-independence, and was used by industrialists and former royals for its size and comfort. It was the first model sold by Premier Automobiles after their collaboration with Chrysler.
This Windsor was has been part of large collections, most of its life, and was restored more than a decade ago. Presented in red with maroon upholstery and beige carpeting, it is complete and in working condition. While it is showing signs of age, it is useable for events and rallies, but will require reconditioning to be in Concours condition. Being Right Hand Drive, it is extremely easy to use on Indian roads, and its large size makes it an extremely comfortable car.
