They say that a picture is worth a thousand works and I do have several nice photos of my 1948 Chrysler Town and
Country 4 door sedan. But I am also going to give you the thousand (or more) words, I hope you enjoy them!
This 1948 Chrysler Town and Country sedan was purchased new on June 15, 1948 by Henry W. Breyer, Jr. who was the
grandson of William A. Breyer, the man who founded the Breyer Ice Cream Company. Henry was then living on an 80
acre estate on Old York Road in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania (Cheltenham Township). His mansion, which was built by
his father, Henry W. Breyer, Sr., in 1915, is now on the National Register of Historic Places. Breyer Jr. used the
woodie sedan to transport his family, guests and companyís executives as well as serving to commute him to his
office and factory in Philadelphia. Judging by the condition of the original carpets, the rear floor and the
driverís side front were quite worn but the passenger side front was still in good condition. That would
indicate that Breyer had a chauffeur to do the driving and that he and his guests would ride in the back seat. In
1956, Breyer sold his mansion and it eventually became the offices of Cheltenham Township. The Chrysler was put
into storage where it sat forgotten and unused for some 24 years. The last license plate on the car (and is still
on the car) was of a 1956 vintage and the PA inspection sticker was also of that year. One of the last oil changes
done was with Invader Motor Oil and the mileage at that time was 69,792. That oil change was done in
Plumsteadville, PA according to the sticker which is still on the door post. Since the current mileage of the car
is 74,400, the car has had less than 5,000 miles added since that oil change which was probably done in about 1955.
In July of 1980, the car was purchased by Donald E. Rook of Pleasant Valley, PA and was added to his collection of
over 100 cars, mainly Chryslers and Packards.

Chrysler recalls 350k vehicles over ignition switches

Thu, 25 Sep 2014 17:44:00 EST

Chrysler has announced a recall covering 349,442 vehicles due to ignition switches that can either become stuck or move without warning. All of the affected vehicles are from the 2008 model year, and were built before May 12, 2008.
The automaker has learned that ignition keys on some vehicles "may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position during engine-startup," the company said in a statement. Additionally, "an ignition key may not fully return to the 'ON' position after rotation to the 'START' position and may inadvertently move through the 'ON' position to 'ACCESSORY' or 'OFF.'"
Chrysler says it is unaware of any related injuries, and notes that while reduced braking, engine or steering power is possible in such instances, the airbags are not affected. The later stands in contrast to General Motors' recent rash of high-profile recalls, and it's an important distinction that Chrysler (understandably) felt necessary to call out in bold print in its press release.

More 2015 Chrysler 200 photos surface

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 17:18:00 EST

Just 24 hours after the first official 2015 Chrysler 200 shot made its way onto the web, a whole smattering of images have surfaced, courtesy of the folks at Motorward. Here, we can see the new Chrysler family sedan from every angle, including the interior, and might we say, she's pretty.
As we told you yesterday, the new 200 will be offered with either a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine with 184 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque or a 3.6-liter Pentastar V6 with 295 hp and 262 lb-ft. A nine-speed automatic transmission accessed through Chrysler's rotary shifter (mounted on a Volvo-style floating center console) will direct power to the wheels. We've heard that both front- and all-wheel drive will be available, and what's more, it's been said that the new 200 will be able to achieve at least 35 miles per gallon on the highway.
An on-sale date has yet to be announced, but the new 200 will reportedly be priced at $21,700, not including $995 for destination. Have a look at the new round of photos in the gallery above - the striking blue model above looks to be the sportier 200S - and stay tuned for the officially official stuff early next week... if not sooner.

Ralph Gilles responds to Dodge rumors, says brand is 'here to stay'

Fri, 12 Jul 2013 13:59:00 EST

This is why we love Ralph Gilles. While in Italy hanging out with a group of Viper Club members in Europe, the SRT boss took the time to respond to a question directed at him on Instagram in regards to the future of Dodge.
Recent reports have painted a bleak picture for Dodge, but Gilles defended Chrysler's full-line brand by stating that the rumors are, "all rumors, Dodge is here to stay! It may get more focused going forward but not killed!" The idea of a "more focused" Dodge brand could lend some credibility to reports that the Grand Caravan and Durango are on their way out, which would leave Dodge solely as a car, or car-based, automaker.
