ODOMETER
1949 Chrysler Royal Station Wagon

116 bhp, 251 cu. in. L-head inline six-cylinder engine, three-speed Fluid Drive semi-automatic transmission, independent front suspension with coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. Wheelbase: 129½" - One of only 850 originally built - Very nicely presented with original “Toltec” upholstery Chrysler restyled its line for 1949 for the first time since the end of WWII, and the year marked Chrysler’s 25th in business as well. It also heralded the addition of the wood-bodied Royal station wagon, the first such vehicle in Chrysler’s lineup since before the war. Rare then as now, only 850 Royal Station Wagons were produced out of the 124,218 Chryslers built in total. Station wagons were a niche model in the late 1940s. Even Chevrolet (10,171) and Ford (13,412) built relatively few for 1949, but their popularity would soon explode over the next decade. The 1949 Chrysler Royal Station Wagon offered here is a particularly attractive example, which was purchased by the current owner from a New Hampshire-based collector about six years ago at the AACA Eastern Division meet at Hershey, Pennsylvania. Powered by Chrysler’s 116 horsepower “Spitfire Six” and mated to Chrysler’s exclusive Fluid-Drive semi-automatic transmission, this car received a professional restoration to the highest standards prior to 2003, when it was owned by noted collector Jim Miller. Finished in Fog Green, the car retains its original brown “Toltec” imitation alligator-hide interior upholstery, which remains remarkably well preserved and presentable, notwithstanding some age-appropriate wear, which the current owner elected to leave undisturbed. The dashboard and steering wheel are highlighted by “xylonite,” an amber-colored plastic that subtly complements the “Toltec” upholstery. The Royal’s wooden bodywork is in excellent condition and well preserved, as is the exterior metal, finish and brightwork. Desirable features include a radio, heater, fog lamps and a padded dashboard. Very straight and original in specification, the car benefits from careful maintenance and proper storage within a private collection, with the mechanicals fully inspected and the addition of new brakes.
