The Chrysler Town and Country is one of the most cherished classic American automobiles from the 1940\'s. While the moniker may have survived to this day, the original Town and Countrys from 1941-1950 were best known for their beautiful wood trim. Chrysler typically produced no more than 1,000 of these fine cars a year in this period. Each model was a product of painstaking panel and trim labor that often delayed showroom deliveries. Intricate joinery and moldings were fabricated to artfully frame the car\'s contour lines. Town and Countrys from 1941 to 1948 wore the full wood-clad panels to the rear of the firewall. In 1949 Chrysler the genuine wood sides in favor of more conveniently fabricated NiLoc panels, which were dropped mid-year into production.
