Hemi Convertible: 1955 Chrysler Windsor ... r-windsor/
After many years of storage this not so common Chrysler Windsor Convertible is a nice large convertible that needs help. Featuring great style, loads of seating, and a Hemi V8 engine, this Chrysler is a cool example of an American Convertible. Unrestored, but in need of restoration, this Windsor can be yours for $15,000. Take a look at it on craigslist out of Lombard, Illinois. Thank you Roger for this uncommon drop top find!

The Hemi heart is still in place, but is not a runner. Quite complete and not looking too shabby, the engine may still hold some compression.

Inside you will find the interior to be very complete and in reasonable condition for its age. Although with the interior photos you start to see some of the drawbacks of this Chrysler. The floors are very crispy with rot along the front edge of the floors, and rot in the rear floors.

You can’t deny that this Chrysler has a neat style that is quite different from a Cadillac, or other 50’s era convertibles. This convertible it stylish and plenty large enough to comfortably fit any and every one you could need in one convertible. Although this looks like a nearly ready to drive survivor, my guess is that the Chicago-land weather lead to the rough floors. The seller has also mentioned that the rockers and quarters also suffer from rust, but it is unclear what the exterior rust looks like overall. Would you take on this classic convertible?
1955 Chrysler convertible - $15000 ... 03759.html
1955 Chrysler Windsor Convertible Navajo Red barn find. The car was parked many years ago. It looks to have original paint or a very old repaint, and original interior. The floors are great. It has some trunk rust, and some lower quarter rust and outer rocker rust. The car needs a total restoration and does not run. This is a Rare car.
15k or best offer, Trade
I'm not a fan of rust, otherwise I might actually make an offer!
This would be a really cool car to restore back to its greatness.
