Back when this 1953 Chrysler Windsor Deluxe was new, its styling was thought to be a bit “stodgy,” especially when compared to the General Motors offerings of the day. Looking at it some 60 years later, I’d say it was — well, stodgy. Boxy, upright, unaerodynamic — call it what you will, it was pretty unexciting. Perhaps a two- or three-tone paint job in some brighter colors would put some more interesting lipstick on this pig, but, too bad for Chrysler that they still had one more year to go before the truly exciting 1955 models came out. The rest, as they say, is history. This one was spotted some time ago just outside the Village of East Aurora.
