This car originally came with a 331 poly head engine. About 2004, the long-time owner realized the original motor was worn and needed to be rebuilt or replaced. He opted to replace it with an upgraded and more powerful 354 Hemi. The Hemi that is in the car now originally came from a 1956 Chrysler New Yorker. Painted in red and white, with complimentary professionally installed red interior-fabric and vinyl. Door panels are red, white and black. The headliner has some wrinkles on the passenger side. Equipped with radial tires. The undercarriage is in very good condition--during restoration a number of years ago the floor boards were professionally replaced. This car features Power Steering, Power brakes. The VIN is W56 47782. Car engine is strong, but the car needs some front end work: king pins, tie rods and an alignment, plus one missing body mount which is easily replaced. This car has been owned for many years by a well known local collector, active in leadership of the regional classic car club. This was his secondary classic, so it saw limited use though it was started and driven during the driving season. The highbeam & lowbeam headlights need to be repaired (an easy fix) along with parking lights and front signal lights. Our Motorland Service Center has these parts and can do the work. As background, the Chrysler Windsor was a full-size car which was built by Chrysler from 1939 through to the 1960s. The Windsor was positioned above the entry-level Royal from 1939 to 1950. With the demise of the Royal for the 1951 model year the Windsor became Chrysler's price leader through to 1960. In 1955, all Chrysler cars were completely restyled by the legendary Virgil Exner, sharing some visual similarities with the all-new Imperial which became its own division. With the introduction of the Imperial brand, the Windsor became the top model of the Chrysler Division as an alternative to Buick and Mercury. The styling of the Windsors was more rounded and featured wrap around windshields. The Windsor made up 65% of Chrysler's sales. In 1956, things got even better. Exner's bold new styling took another step forward with the "Forward Look" which introduced the first tail fins on a Chrysler car. The Forward Look was an instant hit, taking the staid designs of just two years before and vaulting Chrysler to the forefront of postwar automotive styling.
