This 1956 Chrysler Windsor mixes a survivor-style vintage appearance with all the best upgrades. So while the premium classic cruiser look has instant appeal, so does the A/C interior, Bluetooth radio, and disc brake package.
Chrysler cars of the 1950s were true executive-class luxury, you can really see it in the design. The 1956 sedans were a leap forward in style with tailfins that began in the rear doors and a wide grille that announced this wanted to own the road. The full-length trim shows off the quality that endures on this sheetmetal and doors that close with confidence. And these cars always look right in management-level black. The finish isn't perfect, and instead, it goes with the very original brightwork to deliver a car that will give people the impression that this could be a nearly 65-year-old survivor. Plus, the half chrome headlights and smoothie wheels with whitewalls give hints at its upgraded cruising attitude.
These Chryslers represented full-size luxury, and so you get two rows of wide benches with plenty of space to spread out. The two-tone gray on the seats coordinates with the door panels, dash, and more for a quality classic presentation. There are great vintage details everywhere from the grab handles for the rear seats to the courtesy light on the dash. And retro-future fans will love Chrysler's push-button transmission selector. There have been some more recent investments, like newer carpeting and a custom center panel under the dash. This was built to house upgrades like the cold-blowing air conditioning and an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and upgraded speaker system. These keep this vintage Chrysler nice for enjoying in modern times.
Under the hood is the correct 331 cubic-inch V8. Not only does this have a great classic look, right down to the Spirfire valve covers, but also this is date-correct to signal it could be the original motor. The V8 fires up readily like a well-respected classic. And to keep this classic setup running strong in today's world there are worthwhile upgrades like an alternator and an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. The Torqueflite three-speed transmission shifts smoothly, and power steering makes this an easy driver. Plus, you have upgraded front disc brakes and modern treads disguised on the classic whitewalls. So this Windsor feels quite confident on the road.
This is a very vintage sedan that has also been upgraded so that you can enjoy classic motoring to the fullest. Well-done thoughtful packages like this don't stay around for long, call today!
