The Juniper Green and White paint scheme of chassis 7411686 accentuate the car’s “convertible-hardtop” look. The “Clearbac” wrap-around window design further distinguishes the styling characteristic. On close inspection, the exterior condition of 7411686 can be described as excellent. It is said that this example benefited from a comprehensive restoration. Today the brightwork, woodwork, and paint show very little in the way of aging. The green and white color scheme are carried through to the leather and cloth interior upholstery. The interior wood trim is believed original and displays a welcomed patina. Optional equipment on chassis 7411686 includes an AM radio, heater, and clock. Under the hood, everything is clean and well-addressed with proper hoses, clamps, and labels. The aforementioned disc braking system remains intact. Chassis 7411686 is offered today in wonderful condition throughout. We happily report that it drives as nicely as it looks.

With the exception of a few prototypes built-in 1946, the Town & Country Newport was the only wood-bodied Chrysler hardtop coupe ever produced. The historical significance of the one-year 1950 hardtop makes the final Town & Country an especially interesting example of Chrysler’s famed wood-clad luxury cars. Finding one of these last true original “woodies” in any sense is indeed a treat.
