An Old Junked Car

~Grampa's Chrysler~

Abandoned Contest Entry 
My Grandfather purchased this 1947 Chrysler 'Windsor' sedan from our local Chrysler-Plymouth-DeSoto dealership when it was brand new in late 1946. It was still his 'daily driver' when he passed away in the summer of 1961. My GrandMother ( who never really liked the car for some reason unknown to me! ) sold it soon afterwards and it passed along through a series of owners after that,and it appears that at least one of them made some efforts at restoring ( or dismantling! ) it.
I remember seeing it passing by on the road a few times until the middle nineteen seventies or so and then it seemed to disappear!
It was sort of sad to happen upon the old 'Chizzler's' remains while I was exploring the premises of a defunct automobile 'Boneyard' recently! I'm glad I got some photos of it though!
