1941 Chrysler Town & Country
Presented by Peter Haydon — Michigan

Chrysler introduced the distinctive “Town & Country Car,” a new
concept in estate vehicles. This car featured the luggage compartment
behind two side-hinged doors meeting at the center of the rear. The
“clamshell” shaped doors were also dubbed “barrel back” doors. The
9-passenger cars have a third front-faced bench seat, which folded
down from behind the front seat to allow the last three passengers
to enter. The unusual interior of this Town & Country example
consists of matching red Bakelite plastic for the dashboard, radio
and instrument surround, windowsills and steering wheel. These
bright trim pieces contrast with the interior wood door panels and
complement the rich red tones of the leather seats.
