Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this 1949 Chrysler Windsor. The Chrysler Windsor is a full-size car which was built by Chrysler from 1939 through to the 1960s. The final Chrysler Windsor sold in the United States was produced in 1961, but production in Canada continued until 1966. The Canadian 1961 to 1966 Windsor model was for all intents and purposes the equivalent of the Chrysler Newport in the United States. The Windsor was almost identical to the more luxurious Chrysler New Yorker in terms of size, interior and standard features except that it was only available with the Chrysler Inline Six that originally started the company in 1925, which offered customers a luxurious car with a more modest and economic engine. As the years progressed and technology and manufacturing costs improved, the Windsor offered items that were initially optional as standard equipment while maintaining a market position lower in the Chrysler product hierarchy. In 1949, for Chrysler's 25th anniversary, Windsors were updated and shared a corporate appearance with the reintroduced Chrysler Imperial as the top luxury car for Chrysler in 1950. Powering this Windsor is a 250.6 Cubic Inch Inline 6 backed by a 3-Speed Fluid Drive Transmission. Fluid Drive is the trademarked name that Chrysler Corporation assigned to a transmission driveline combination which replaced the flywheel with a hydraulic coupling and performed the same function as a modern torque converter, only without torque multiplication. A conventional clutch and three- or four-speed manual transmission was installed behind the fluid coupling. Fluid drive was used in many military vehicles produced for the US Armed Forces during the Second World War. It was offered for civilian use from 1939 through 1953 in Chryslers
Options on this 1949 Chrysler Windsor include: Bias-Ply Tires, Cloth Interior, Hub Caps, and Wide White Wall Tires.
