Here are a couple of my 1947 Chrysler Town & Countrys. One is a Brooklin 4 dr sedan while the other is a Provence Moulage kit that I just completed. It come with the body only while the interior, baseplate, bumpers and wheels are donated by a Solid Chrysler Windsor.

Here are pictures of the Provence Moulage under construction and completed. I chose a Chrysler Highlander interior.

Completely missed that Renato. Will have to dig through my parts bin and see if I have them from the Solido donor. Thanks for pointing this out.

Ken your work is a chef d'oeuvre and your Chrysler as well as the BRK or The NBCC Chrysler looks for me better than the MCUSA Chrysler with a long nose. Long time ago when an older seller with a reputation offer you a bargain of 25% to get the MCUSA Chrysler you think about it.

These "long nose"  Town & Country sedans are technically not incorrect as there were a limited number (100?) of these based on the New Yorker wheelbase with the big inline side valve 8 cylinder engines.  All T & C convertibles were on the long wheelbase with the 8 cylinder engine which means Vitesse got it wrong with their model.  They based their T & C convertible on their Windsor sedan platform that was a side valve 6 cylinder car.    A while back I created the sedan which is a 6 cylinder car shown here with the slightly incorrect Vitesse convertible.
