Great Shape: 1972 Chrysler Town & Country Wagon
The classic American body-on-frame family station wagon might not be a fixture at your local auto dealer since the Buick Roadmaster was put to bed after the 1996 model year...but it is a regular feature at car shows and on the mean streets of main street USA. Find this 1972 Chrysler Town & Country Wagon here on eBay bidding for $6,300 with 2 days to go, located in Princeton Junction, NJ.
The Chrysler Town & Country was released for the 1940 model year as the world's first wood sided wagon with an all steel roof. Fast forward a few decades and this fifth generation Town & Country features a sweet fuselage style shape that was typical of Chrysler cars of the era. Power comes from a 440 cubic inch V8 fed via a 4-barrel carburetor to make 215 (SAE net) horsepower and 310 ft-lbs of torque.
The part that is shocking about this particular car isn't that it is a big wagon, but that it is in impeccable shape for its age and current bidding price. If the price is anywhere near the current bid when the e-hammer hits the e-gavel, it will be well purchased.
