Wheels in the Grass

This one is really in the grass, and far off the road. In Wainfleet, Ontario sits what appears to be a 1949 Chrysler Windsor club coupe. The Canadian Chryslers had a name badge on the hood which wasn’t on U.S. cars. This one was most likely built in Chrysler’s Windsor, Ontario plant. The U.S. version sold for $2,308 and what with the exchange rates back then you can bet this Canadian car had a higher price tag. The Windsors (and cheaper Royals) rode on 125.5 inch wheelbases, while the pricier Saratoga, New Yorker, and Imperial had another half-foot between the axles. And the four-door sedans of all series far outsold the two-doors, so this here car is a pretty uncommon find.
