Description:

Outrageous when it was new and even more so today, the early ''60s Chryslers are now some of the most highly-sought cars of the period. Sleek, powerful, and dramatic, this Canadian-bred 1961 Chrysler Windsor still makes a bold statement more than fifty years later. Wearing a very accurate rendition of its original Tuscan Beige paint, this incredible-looking Windsor has the kind of presence normally reserved for the Batmobile. The ''50s were over, but fins were still in fashion, albeit somewhat restrained, and nobody did fins better than Virgil Exner. Adding in big grilles, diagonally stacked headlights, and a lot of surface details means that these big Chryslers stand out from their contemporaries and make everything else on the road look downright frumpy. The body was nicely restored and offers a very authentic-looking shine to the paint and super straight bodywork that''s critical on a car with as many creases and edges as this. There''s no sign of major issues or repairs in the usual areas, and despite spending its life in Ontario, it''s clear that this car has been well maintained its entire life. The chrome must have cost a fortune to restore, as all of it looks quite impressive, from the dramatic Z-shaped side trim to the insanely ornate taillights atop the fins. The interior is just as stunning, with perhaps the most remarkable instrument panel we''ve ever seen. It seems that every single part in this car was designed by an artist to not only be functional but beautiful as well. The steering wheel is made from two different types of plastic and was surely restored with the rest of the car, while the cool brocade fabric is just as funky and interesting as the rest of the interior. There are no splits or tears in the upholstery and it shows very little wear, a testament to the quality of the restoration and the car it has received. The domed instrument cluster puts the auxiliary gauges in orbit around the steering column, while the controls for the pushbutton TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic are at your fingertips to the left. Engine-turned panels, a dash-mounted rear-view mirror, and the pleated dash pad all seem to have a European influence while the radio has the charisma of a ''50s juke box. Replacement carpets are in good shape, the door panels are amazing pieces of sculpture, and, well, there''s simply nothing inside this car that isn''t interesting, beautifully made, and well-restored. The 361 cubic inch V8 was the standard engine in the Windsor, but with a fat torque curve and a purring smooth idle, it''s every bit the luxury powerplant you''d expect. Nicely detailed with a correct heavy-duty air cleaner and corporate silver paint on the engine itself, it proves that even the engine bay was subject to the designers'' pens. Fully rebuilt, it starts easily and moves the Windsor with ease, cruising at modern highway speeds without apparent effort. It stays cool and the bulletproof TorqueFlite automatic goes about its business with a minimum of fuss. The undercarriage is very nicely detailed, with shiny mechanical components, including a new exhaust system, against flat black floors with just a dusting of undercoating. Full wheelcovers are stunning in their intricacy and are protected by reproduction 8.50-14 BFGoodrich Silvertown whitewall tires. Complete with the original window sticker, reproduction owner''s manual, restoration receipts, and multiple trophies, this is an exceptional car that demands far more time and attention than we can give it here. Please come see it and be prepared to be impressed. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
