This 1953 Chrysler Town and Country station wagon found on Ebay is an early Hemi car ready for restoration. Only 1,242 were made, so remaining examples are few and far between. Surface rust is evident, but a lifetime in Arizona has helped in keeping the body and floors solid. All the interior and exterior trim pieces appear to be intact. The drivetrain is original including the 331 Hemi engine that is said to purr. Brake cylinders are needed but otherwise the car is said to in good mechanical condition. Power steering, brakes and Simplimatic transmission are among the features on this top of the line wagon.
As you can see, these cars are beautiful when finished. This one in the same ‘Sand Beige’ and ‘Metallic Brown’ finish sold at Barrett-Jackson a few years ago for $66,000.
