My 73 Chrysler Town & Country

Hi,

I've got a 73 Chrysler Town&Country. I got it about two and 1/2 years ago to replace one that I got some 10 years prior. But that wasn't my first. My dad bought one new off the showroom floor in 72. We grew up in that one and I learned to drive ( and parallel park) in that car.

It's a nine passenger model with every option available except Autotemp a/c control (a pain to keep working) and rear a/c. It has dual six way power front seats, cruise control, power windows, a/c, 50/50 front bench seats with reclining passenger seat.

We use the car for trips and shows and enjoy it as a family (whenever my family lets me)....

Thanks guys.... That was fast! Two minutes posted and.... Bang... Two comments...

More pictures and info on it. It is an all original survivor with 63,000 miles. Originally delivered to first owner in Illinois and taken to North Dakota for all its life ( still pulling bits of North Dakota out of the undercarriage wheel wells. It has absolutely no rust and everything including the optional "digital" chronometer functions as it should.
