1952 Chrysler Saratoga Limousine

Limousine ownership is a responsibility not to be taken lightly. Requests to be a wedding chauffeur or designated driver will soon fill your weekends. Unless, that is, you get a limo simply too mangy and scary for everyone but only your best, most deranged friends to ride in. Seating for up to 6 of your motley crew, including a jump seat for the least favorite or most flatulent, completes the package for this 1952 Chrysler Saratoga Limousine on craigslist in Greenville, NC for $3,500.  This post is part of DT's 2016 Birthday Celebration of 100 cars; enjoy the ride!



Mechanical parts should be pretty easy to find for the 331 Firepower V8 and related driveline components. Luckily, most of the body panels and trim should be shared with its contemporaries but things look pretty solid except for some peeling paint and rust underneath. If the car spent its whole life in Eastern NC, the body probably isn’t too, too bad but you’ll want to check for rust in the belly if it’s been sitting.
