Hemmings Find of the Day #8211; 1950 Chrysler Town #038; Country Newport

Somewhere between fully restored and all-original is the sympathetic restoration, usually implemented to preserve as much of a car#8217;s originality as possible, while preventing it from damage and deterioration. The sympathetic restoration of this 1950 Chrysler Town Country Newport for sale on Hemmings.com went so far as to include new Juniper Green paint and new Wilton Wool carpeting, but also preserved the 38,000-mile car#8217;s driveability. From the seller#8217;s description:

Chrysler Town&Country

1950 Chrysler Town Country Newport woodie; one of 75 remaining of the 700 originally made. This woodie has just over 38,000 original miles on the odometer.

The car was purchased by our family in 2002 as a driver, and since then, has undergone a sympathetic restoration, taking care to preserve as much of the original design and patina as possible. Extensive restoration has taken place #8220;out of sight#8221; to achieve this result. Changes have only been made to enhance the car#8217;s driveability on modern roads while keeping its soul intact.

This car could be driven from coast to coast, on Route 66, entered in popular rallies or car shows, reside in a museum, or simply be driven and enjoyed. It#8217;s a happy car. Virtually every time I#8217;ve driven the car, it has received a #8220;thumbs up#8221; from others who enjoy looking at it.

It is also a strikingly beautiful car. Highlights of major work include: installation of vacuum-assisted front disc brakes, new carpeting, new Juniper Green paint, new chrome, and rebuilt fluid drive and gearbox. Additionally, the car has never been in an accident and has no dings.

It#8217;s always been garaged and covered in the garage.

Recently (June 2013), the car has had green Wilton Wool carpeting installed throughout, including the trunk space. In addition, new cloth upholstery to match the original was special-ordered and (June, 2013) the front bench seat bottom and both doors were reupholstered. No rips or tears exist either in the upholstery or the leather.

There is enough spare new cloth to reupholster the entire interior. This spare cloth measures 13 ft. x 5 ft. 6 in. Many other spares are also included with the purchase.

If requested, the sale will include two volumes of restoration notes, a CD showing over 1,000 digital photographs delineating work, a Chrysler workshop manual, a Classic Car cross-reference parts guide, and a Chrysler spare parts catalog.
