Finished in deep blue while retaining its still wonderfully presenting original grey cloth interior, this beautiful and imposing automobile was the pinnacle of Chrysler luxury and exclusivity when new, and remains one of the most desirable full CCCA classics today. This particular car has appeared in numerous magazine features, and is very well known in the classic car community. This was an automobile built to extreme standards and to prove it, the company staged a demonstration in which a full grown elephant stood squarely on the roof of the car without issue. Its 384-cubic-inch straight-8 engine develops 125-horsepower, and helps propel the car to a factory claimed cruising speed of 96 M.P.H. - truly astounding attributes in 1931. If you have been searching for one of the most handsomely designed, most incredibly engineered automobiles to ever wear a Chrysler badge, you have found one of the best in existence. It runs and drives as smoothly as you would expect of any ultra-luxury automobile, and it is ready to show and drive anywhere. As was often the case in years past, this was a late production 1931 model, which has been titled as a 1932, but is an absolutely common and acceptable occurrence. Do not miss this opportunity to acquire one of the rarest, most exquisitely designed Chryslers of all time.
