1933 Chrysler Kew Six
During the 1930s most British marques had small underpowered engines, reflecting the 'Horsepower Tax of the time. American manufacturers saw a gap in the market for largered engined sensibly priced alternatives. 'Plymouth was the Chrysler Corporation's low-priced model. Next up was Dodge, then De-Soto, then Chrysler itself and, sitting imperiously on the top of the heap, Imperial. Plymouths and De-Sotos assembled in Mortlake, London from 1932 to 1939 were badged Chrysler with the names of London suburbs, such as Croydon, Richmond, Kew and Wimbledon. The Kew has a powerful 6 cylinder side valve engine, making it quite usable in today's traffic.
We last sold this impressive Chrysler over four years ago, and since then it has made the ideal wedding car. Beautifully presented and incredibly rare, this Kew model is spacious inside, and is very straight forward to drive. The car was fully rebuilt to a vey high standard before we originally bought the car. The body in particular is superb, and the upholstery has been carefully detailed making it very admirable.
