Curbside Capsule: Chrysler Coupe Heading South

1947 Chrysler front

This 1947 Chrysler Three-Passenger Coupe was waiting for the evening ferry to cross Bass Strait from Melbourne to Devonport in Tasmania with its new owner, who was returning home after swapping it for a hot rod.

1947 Chrysler side

Other than having been lowered and painted in what must be a non-original colour I gather that the car is largely original.

1947 Chrysler rear

One thing that is extraordinary about this car is the length of the trunk! With no rear seat it just goes on and on; it doesn’t even appear that Chrysler knew what to do with it all.
